The 12 Hows of Happiness

People often ask me what *one* book I’d recommend if they could only read one book. I had a hard time answering that question until I read Sonja Lyubomirsky’s brilliant The How of Happiness where she outlines the 12 scientifically proven ways we can boost our happiness. Here they are:
  1. Expressing Gratitude
     2. Cultivating Optimism
     3. Avoiding Over-thinking and Social Comparison
     4. Practicing Acts of Kindness
     5. Nurturing Social Relationships
     6. Developing Strategies for Coping
     7. Learning to Forgive
     8. Increasing Flow Experiences
     9. Savoring Life’s Joys
     10. Committing to Your Goals
     11. Practicing Religion and Spirituality
     12. Taking Care of Your Body: Meditation + Physical Activity + Acting Like a Happy Person

P.S. One of the coolest points Dr. L makes in the book is the fact that, as we decide what happiness practices to focus on, we want to avoid the “shoulds” and pick the ones that really inspire us! Why? Well, we’re much more likely to stick to the intrinsic goals that have deep personal meaning!
P.P.S. So, as you get inspired by all the Ideas in this book, focus on the ones that REALLY light you up! Not the ones you think you *should* do. Cool? Cool. (And, while we’re on the subject: What are your favorite Ideas so far? How can you integrate them into your life?!)
# 3 – And this post about a presentation the Dalai Lama gave on climate change seemed to fit nicely with Tip# 2…..
# 4 – A short, stimulating video by Alan Watts titled “What If Money Was No Object.” Also seemed to fit nicely with the “hows of happiness” focus of Tip# 2…

# 5 – And check out this post at Self-help Heath that includes a simple routine to boost your brain power, a free chia recipe e-book, and more….

# 6 – And from Abe…..

You are the owner of all that you perceive. But you can’t perceive apart from your vibration. Feel your way, little-by-little, into a greater sense of abundance by looking for the treasures that the Universe is offering you on a day-to-day basis.-–Abraham

# 2 – Love this one….

 

 

# 3 – Something free you may want to check out….an MP3 of Positive Self-esteem Affirmations that you can play in the background as you go about your day….

# 4 – A friend shared this one with me recently. Very thought-provoking and insightful....

“The innocent mistake that keeps us caught in our own particular style of ignorance, unkindness, and shut-downness is that we are never encouraged to see clearly what is, with gentleness. Instead, there’s a kind of basic misunderstanding that we should try to be better than we already are, that we should try to improve ourselves, that we should try to get away from painful things, and that if we could just learn how to get away from the painful things, then we would be happy.” – Pema Chodron

 

 

# 5 – This seems like a great resource to know about from I Heart (Love) Intelligence….40 websites that offer all sorts of educational courses, scientific lessons, video lectures on a variety of topics, etc. 

http://www.iheartintelligence.com/2014/01/18/beat-the-system-40-free-educational-websites/

 

 

# 6 – And I can’t remember if I’ve shared this before, but it’s so uplifting and restores your faith in humanity to see a montage of all these rescues….

 

 

 

# 7 – And food for thought from Abe…

When you are feeling the discomfort from seeing other people in a lackful or needy situation, and you decide to help them from your place of discomfort, no lasting value ever occurs, for two important reasons: first, you are not in alignment with the Energy of your Source, and so you have no real value to give; and second, your attention to their need only amplifies their need.

Of course, it is a wonderful thing to help others, but you must do it from your position of strength and alignment, which means you must be in alignment with their success as you offer assistance, and not in alignment with their problem.

When your awareness of their situation makes you uncomfortable and you offer help to make them feel better and to make yourself feel better, you are not in the Vortex and you are not helping. When you feel an inspired eagerness to offer something because you want to participate in their happy, successful process, your attention to their success harmonizes with the point of view of your Source; and the infinite resources of the Universe are at your disposal. And that does help.–Abraham

# 6 – And from Abe…..

Attempting to Control Others Attracts More to Be Controlled… It is easy to understand how you would come to the conclusion that your path to feeling good is through influencing or controlling the behavior of others. But as you attempt to control them (through influence or coercion), you discover that not only can you not contain them – but your attention to them brings more like them into your experience. You simply cannot get to where you want to be by controlling or eliminating the unwanted.–Abraham

Through THEIR eyes, Hafiz, quotes on succeeding, be the change, and LOTS of free resources!


TIPS FOR THE DAY:

 

# 1 – A recent Note From the Universe (tut.com) that came to my inbox….

Today, be the person of your dreams.

See life through THEIR eyes.

Make decisions with THEIR mind.

Let every thought, word, and action come from THEIR perspective, as if you had already arrived, and just watch how 2015 warps into the kind of year you talk and laugh about forever and ever and ever…

Psst, that person already does exist. It’s you and there’s nothing to do, but let them out.

 

# 2 – Ummm, a thought-provoking, inspiring, meditative experience….25 quotes on how to succeed set to lovely music….

 

 

# 3 – From the Sufi master Hafiz…..

Light Will someday split you open
Even if your life is now a cage.

Little by little, You will turn into stars.
Little by little, You will turn into
The whole sweet, amorous Universe.

Love will surely burst you wide open
Into an unfettered, booming new galaxy.

You will become so free
In a wonderful, secret
And pure Love That flows
From a conscious, One-pointed, Infinite Light.

Even then, my dear, The Beloved will have fulfilled
Just a fraction, Just a fraction!
Of a promise He wrote upon your heart.

For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
Is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to.

O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.

When your soul begins
To ever bloom and laugh
And spin in Eternal Ecstasy-

O little by little, You will turn into God.   – translated by Dan Ladinsky

 

# 4 – Something to consider….

 

# 5 – Lots of upcoming free series and events that sound interesting….
