How to be Happy

Staying Happy

Just read believe it or not an article from a financial guru about staying happy in your lifetime that I would like to share with you.

Happiness depends on several key factors like physical health, relationships, and your job satisfaction. Speaking of relationships, your choice in a life partner or (Spouse) will be the most important decision you will ever make and will have a major impact in your total happiness and possibly your wealth.

Overall, happiness and optimism made us better able to look forward to a positive future. That meant we anticipated better returns and consequently took more risks.

Here are three things you can do to be happier…

Exercise. Exercise does wonders for happiness. When you work your body, you produce tons of feel-good chemicals. About two and a half hours of exercise per week offers the peak benefit and personally I enjoy walking 10,000 plus steps per day while listening to a variety of audio clips from my MP3 player.

Walks during the day in the sun. Your body naturally converts sunlight to vitamin D, which helps lift your mood as well. So get out there and walk, it will improve your health and mood.

Meditate. I love meditation and its powerful effects. I made it a daily habit to meditate at least 15 minutes per day listening to a variety of mediation audio files that I have collected over the years.

Meditation will also help with health related issues such as coping with stress and helping your body regenerate itself.

Disconnect. Our obsession with the digital age feeds into negative thinking. So unplug your electronics and that includes your cell phones. So take some time each week to unplug. Try getting outside, for instance, and leaving the technology in the house. Might be a good time to exercise or take that walk I mentioned above.
