Be Happy

…sometimes, we are just so moved by something that we are compelled to share it with others. I guess that is why I have this blog.

At any rate, I am sharing this wonderful little piece that was published in a January 2010 issue of People Magazine.

I loved it so much, I ripped it out and put it on my refrigerator. You should know, I never do that. It’s that great.

3 Ways to be Happier

University of California psychologist Sonja Lyumbomirsky offers a how-to for living more happily.

1. TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY
Engage in physical activity, meditating, smiling and laughing.

2. REPLAY AND SAVOR LIFE’S JOYS
Pay close attention! That means taking delight in and going over life’s momentary pleasures, whether it’s by thinking, writing, drawing or sharing with another person.

3. LEARN TO FORGIVE
Keep a journal or write a letter in which you work on letting go of anger at or resentment of someone who has hurt or wronged you.
