50 Ways To Be Happier Today


Here’s a fun and helpful post I spotted this morning and wanted to pass along.

Stacy Tornio, at Mother Nature Network, has collected a bunch of ways to add a dash of happiness to your life.

The list includes  a few suggestions that might seem a tad silly, such as “eating a whole candy bar” or “buying a new pair of shoes”. However the list offers several great reminders about happiness-inducing activities, like meditating and volunteering.

Overall, the message of the post is that small things can make a big difference in our happiness.

Check out Stacy’s suggestions via the link below.

“We searched high and low, looking at both scientific research and advice from the general public, about what makes someone happy. Here are 50 things you can do to add a little cheer into your life.” – Stacy Tornio
