How To Be Happy

Is there some secret that those who always seem
happy are hiding? Not at all. They just have a way
of turning negative into positive.

Below are a few ways you to can start bringing more
happiness and less negativity into your life.

*Take care of yourself physically. It's much easier to
be optimistic when you are eating well, exercising, and
getting enough rest.

*Be thankful. Stresses and challenges don't seem as
terrible when you remind yourself of the things that
are right in life.

* Don't Assume. Don't waste time worrying that you
did something incorrect unless you have evidence that
there is something to worry about.

* Don't use absolutes. Thinking and talking in absolutes
like 'always' and 'never' makes the situation appear worse
than it is.

*Think positively. Your thoughts can't hold any power
over you if you don't judge them. If you notice yourself
having a negative thought, detach from it, witness it,
and don't follow it.

*Get and give hugs. Positive physical contact with friends,
loved ones, and even pets, is an instant pick-me-up.

*Increase your social activity. Surround yourself with
healthy, happy people, and their positive energy will affect
you in a positive way!

*Volunteer. Everyone feels good after helping. You can
volunteer your time, your money,or your resources. The
more positive energy you put out into the world, the more
you will receive in return.

*Don't dwell on the negative. It's never productive, because
it's not rational or solution-oriented; it's just excessive worry.

Try changing your physical environment - go for a walk or sit
outside. You could also call a friend, pick up a book, or turn
on some music. Practice does indeed make perfect. Before
long, the above traits will become automatic. You will look
back and realize how far you have come. You will have
become one of the ones people look to for the "secret" of

"Rejoice always"- Bible
