Happiness




This is a neat article about Happiness. I guess, happiness tends to be highest among Latin Americans and Americans.

I think when you determine to enjoy your life, your level of happiness goes up. Take some time to smell the roses. :O)

Some other ways to increase your happiness include:

  1. Associate with other happy people
  2. Major on your strengths, not your weaknesses
  3. Think big and play to win, rather then playing "not to lose"
  4. Have goals and focus on what you desire...not what you don't want and "who's to blame".
  5. Be a blessing
  6. Count your blessings - An attitude of gratitude will lift your altitude in life.
  7. Forgive...including yourself.
  8. Learn to love yourself and like yourself.
  9. Learn the art of boundry setting - Use "Yes" and "No" with wisdom
  10. Excercise
  11. Celebrate when you achieve your goals and when you are making progress toward your goals.
  12. Find your purpose and be a person of vision. Being a person of vision will cause you to flourish in life. A lack of vision will cause you to 'cast of restraint'. Be a person of vision.
  13. Laugh. They say that as part of a positive health regime you need to laugh around 15 minutes a day. The average adult laughs very little. It's hard to be happy, when you carry a 'grim' contenance and it's not good for your health.
When you get in God's presence it produces happiness. As King David so powerfully declared:

"Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place."
1 Chronicles 16:27

The Presence of God is a place of glory and honor, as well as strength and gladness.... It's a place of Happiness.

Religion can sometimes burn you out, but Jesus will lift you up. :)

You are the best.

Hi mmcneil, I have been visiting sites for hours and I really like what you have done with your blog. Informative and interesting! In fact I found your site just after
I visited synergy/change
It's not exactly what I was looking for but it was nonetheless interesting to read.
