Here’s what Happy Sounds Like.
I’d like to share:
The Ten Keys to Happier Living based on a review of the latest research from psychology and related fields. Everyone’s path to happiness is different, but the evidence suggests these Ten Keys consistently tend to have a positive impact on people’s happiness and well-being.
The following 5 daily activities are based on the Five Ways to Wellbeing developed by nef as part of the Foresight Project.
- Do things for others “When I help someone, I get so much out of it myself.”
- Connect with people “We are lucky to be able to connect with people from every part of our planet. I met Mandy Rowe online.”
- Take care of your body “Working out at my local gym, and swimming has kept me sane, after long hours at my desk. What about you?”
- Notice the world around “Do you pay attention to what is around you or are you glued to your i-phone?”
- Keep learning new things “I’m always trying to learn new things. Lately I’ve been watching YouTube videos on how to use TRX equipment so I can vary my exercise routine and take this equipment with me anywhere in the world.
The second five keys come from inside us and depend on our attitude to life.
- Have goals to look forward to My goals to look forward to are taking the TESOL certificate in London this April-May. Also hoping to serve in Africa this for the Peace Corps.
- Find ways to bounce back I’m finding many ways to bounce back after my divorce, staying busy, exercising, coaching authors and working on my projects.
- Take a positive approach I listen to Louise Hay, CDs while I’m driving as she has such a positive outlook on life.
- Be comfortable with who you are We don’t need to compare ourselves to others. I wrote an article for indie-authors about the truth that many authors are scared to admit. Many of you thanked me for being honest.
- Be part of something bigger I think we all want to find meaning and purpose to our lives. Doing good to others makes us happy.
I’ve summarized the 10 keys and hope you click on the ones that interest you.
