If you want to be happy for the rest of your life… March 22, 2010

Happiness is difficult to define and even harder to measure. We experience it as a combination of elements, in the same way that one wheel or spring inside a watch doesn’t keep time — it is a result of the synchronicity of the whole. As a relative state, happiness is what psychologists call our “subjective well-being” and, fortunately for us, it is a state that we can actively change for the better. Here are 20 ways to start.

  1. Count Your Blessings
  2. Hear the Music
  3. Snog. Canoodle. Get It On.
  4. Nurture Your Spirituality
  5. Move Your Body
  6. Laugh Big
  7. Do Something Nice for Someone Else
  8. Make More Money Than Your Peers
  9. Seek Positive Emotion as a Path to Success
  10. Identify With Your Heritage
  11. Use a Happy Memory as a Guide
  12. Play the Part of an Optimist
  13. Try New Things
  14. Tell Your Story to Someone
  15. Balance Work and Home
  16. Be Like the Danes: Keep Expectations Realistic
  17. Make Time
  18. Visualize Happiness
  19. Smile
  20. Marry Happy
2. I raked nearly my entire 40 x 40 garden of leaves plus the herb garden today.
3. I warmed my innards with hot cocoa and marshmallows and warm my outards ( is that a word?) in a bubble bath.
