Develop A Habit Of Graditude
- If you develop a habit of graditude you focus more on what you have than what you don't have. You won't be stressing on about your wants and will live enjoying the blessings you ignore when you are worrying.

Your Happiness Now
- By feeling better now, repeatedly each day your brain actually gets bigger, physically in the area that uses imagination to be happy. If you feel better enogh times you get better at it. Once you learn how to feel better, you can then learn how to be happy, and once you learn how to be happy, the world is your oyster! I wish you the best in all you do!

- Being still and listening to my inner voice. I like to spend time alone in a park or a beautiful garden and meditate. In Winter, sights of snow falling is comforting. Realizing that change is inevitable and if you look at change as positive, it usually is.

How to be Happy
- My Recipe to being Happy is to be honest with yourself and others and to always just be who you are and accept everyone for who they are. There is good in all people, so never look at the negetive but the postive of a person. And if something is bothering you from what someone has said or done to you to hurt your feelings, well, just let it go. Everyone has faults so it does one no good to hold it inside and feel bad. Just let it go and be grateful for what you do have.

- There is no regret, only a lesson. Whatever happens, happens for good. If someone breaks your heart, it's their fault and they should cry, not you.

- Whenever I am unhappy, I try to divert my mind by keeping myself busy. I do clean my cupboard,s arrange my clothes, dust etc. Many a time I sit surffing on net so that by sliding here & there my mood changes and I also come to know many new things.

- Like Vivienc, at the end of each day, I try to write down a handful of good things that happened that day, things that make me happy. I love reading over them when I'm down, and I love thinking of them at the end of the day, too.

Happiness Is In You
- Don't do anything just to placate others, do what you feel is right and true to your own conscience and keep God in mind always in whatever work you do.

Deliberately Note the Good Things
- At the end of each day I write down five things which were good that day. I soon found that during the day I was looking for the good things so I would remember to note them down later.

- I'm absolutely happy when I am volunteering. Giving my time and effort to someone else or to a cause really boosts my mood and self-esteem. I've learned how to organize a parade (I do the Halloween parade in my community) and how to run a bingo game for local elderly residents. It's been so much fun and so rewarding. My husband and sometimes my stepdaughter also participate, and that is perfect happiness for me!

- Watching the changing, glorious nature of a sunset never fails to fill my heart with happiness. The best part about it is that it is there waiting for me every day!

Focus on the Positive
- I have always been a slightly unhappy person. I had lots of reasons to be unhappy in the past - my life had taken a sort of downward turn for a few years. But after recent positive changes, I still found lots to be unhappy about and I realized it was ridiculous. I am striving to find the positives and focusing on all the reasons I have to be happy instead of looking for the downside to everything! It is really making a difference in my life - and the lives of the people who care about me who are glad to see a more happy person in place of the down-in-the-mouth character they were used to dealing with!

- I like to sit and read my paper in the morning while sipping tea. I get up an extra hour early, just so I'll have time for this quiet ritual. It's nothing special, but it helps me feel centered, and a quiet sense of happiness comes over me then that often lasts the rest of the day.
- —Guest Susan
- Life's simple pleasures make me the happiest. I don't need anything fancy or expensive to make me happy. A fair weather day, a big cheezy slice of pizza, a phone call from one of my adult children, a good belly laugh, a surprise hug from a friend I haven't seen in awhile. These are just a few... Happiness is a choice, I believe that... and it is what I choose. Not that I don't have my cranky moments.... but in general I'm a very happy person.

Laughing With My Kids
- This may sound like a cliche', but I get so happy when I'm laughing and joking around with my kids, who are 6 and 9. They're now at ages where about half the time, they actually get jokes that I think are funny--and the other half of the time, they're hilarious because they're just being their wacky-kid selves. Either way, when we get into fits of shared laughter, I am truly at my happiest.
