Happiness Tips

1. Experiment to see what makes you happy.

2. Hang out with people who are happy and upbeat – as other people affect the way we feel.

3. Make a list of your blessings – don’t focus on “what’s wrong”.

4. Cultivate an attitude of thankfulness. Add to your list several times a day.

5. Focus on solutions instead of on your problems.

6. Make time to connect with the people you love.

7. Accept the way that you and others are. Growth and change don’t happen instantly.

8. Take time to enjoy the moment. Savour what you can from the small things in life – a sunrise, a rainbow, or a giggling child.

9. Remind yourself often that “this, too, will pass”. Hard times and trials are only temporary.

10. Follow your passions –as they reflect who you are – and are a natural source of fulfillment and joy.

11. Engage in random acts of kindness.

12. Try to smile and laugh and often as you can.
