Happy People Do Things Differently!

 I gave this program at our TOPS Group last night… It brought out quite a lot of conversation… which I think is always a good thing!

k4739387 Happy Face Stickers were handed out to those who commented!

 

Happy people are Happy because they “make” themselves Happy… They maintain a positive outlook on life and remain at peace with themselves…

This is from an article I read from Chiara Fucarino…

There are 22 Things listed as to WHY…

It seems Happy People Do Things Differently!

They have good habits that enhance their lives…

 

1. Don’t hold grudges…

Better to forgive and forget than to let their negative feelings crowd their positive feelings…

2. Treat everyone with kindness…

Being kind makes you happier!… When you do kind acts… your brain produces serotonin, a hormone that eases tension and lifts your spirits…

3. See problems as challenges…

The word “problem” is not in a Happy Person’s vocabulary… Treating a problem as a challenge is like an opportunity with positive results…

4. Express Gratitude for what they already have…

You have a deeper sense of contentment if you count your blessings instead of yearning for what you don’t have…
