7 Secrets to Uncover the Happy Habit
by Dave McPherson

Being happy is a state of mind. If you make up your mind to always be
happy you will live a more enriched life. But how do you remain in a
state of happiness? Here are 7 steps to obtain the happy habit.

1. Smile

Some people say it takes less effort to smile than to frown. In other
words it is much easier to smile. Smile at every occasion. When
someone says hello to you say hello back with a big smile. Of course
the smile has to be genuine. You will feel better and you will make
the other person feel better about themselves.

2. Be grateful for what you already have

They say be grateful and thankful for what we have in our lives, and
that is so true. Think about all the good things in your life now.
Your family, friends, life itself. Remind yourself of this everyday.

3. Avoid negative people

Avoid people with only negative things to say about life. If you talk
to them and join in their conversations they will bring you down to
their level and you will become one of them, a negative thinker.
Associate yourself with happy, positive people and you will feel
better for it.

4. Love makes the world go round

Show your feelings and affections to people you come in to contact
with. Express your love and friendship at every opportunity.

5. Feel alive - get out and about

Take regular exercise, even if it is just going for a walk. The fresh
air will make you feel alive and you will feel better for it.

6. Make other people happy - pay them a compliment

If you make other people feel good about themselves, you in turn will
feel good about yourself. If your wife or husband buys a new outfit,
say how great they look. If your work colleagues do a good job on a
project, tell them. If a sales person gives you good service, make a
point of telling them you were impressed. Pay compliments at every
opportunity and do it with a smile. You will walk away knowing you
will have made them feel better about themselves.

7. Laugh

They say laughter is the best medicine. Watch your favourite comedy
film or comedian and laugh as loud as you like. You will feel better
for the experience.

Make a decision now to become a happy person. We all have choices in
our life and many are simply down to the way we think. To be happy is
quite simple - just make up your mind to be.

Unfortunately common sense is not all that common!!

How you treat me is your karma - how I react is mine
