As Hunt For Happiness Week continues, people are swapping tips for bringing more joy into their lives. (And the act of sharing fun tips, in itself, can bring an added dose of happiness.) This week I wrote a guest blog post for the Secret Society of Happy People, who spearheaded Hunt For Happiness Week, and several people shared their own tips. Here are a few:
"I like to do random acts of kindness (like tape a baggie of exact change on the coke machine at work) but not tell anyone about these acts. Keeping this "secret" makes the happiness last so much longer!"
"I take the long way home, avoiding the interstates altogether. Most traffic races to the interstate to get home quickly, causing more road rage than one can imagine. I prefer to drive at 35-45 mph through the older parts of town that are quite lovely during each and every season. I might also add this keeps me in touch with new businesses and restaurants that are always popping up within our city. A very relaxing drive, happiness at it's best."
"I walk my dog to manage stress. Even on days like today when it's 5°F he gets me outside. It almost always helps me find my center and calm."
You can read my post for more ideas, and find out the super-easy way you can win a copy of my new book, 8 Keys to Stress Management. What are your best ways to manage stress and add happiness to your life? Share them in the comments section below, or on my guest post.
