We’re all looking for ways to be truly happy, right?

I enjoyed an article while sipping coffee this morning and I found the advice most helpful.

Of course I had to share the tips with my friends.

Jenn Savedge at Mother Nature Network writes about a simple technique that can enhance your well-being (see link below).

Let me know what you think 🙂

“Google’s former happiness expert Chade-Meng Tan encourages us to notice ‘thin slices of joy’ all day long.” – Jenn Savedge

“Noticing sounds trivial, but it is an important meditative practice in its own right,” Tan writes. “Noticing is the prerequisite of seeing. What we do not notice, we cannot see.” – Chade-Meng Tan

One of the blogs I return to on a regular basis is Leo Babauta’s Zen Habits, which has been dispensing wonderful advice for several years.

All valuable skills take time to develop.

In a recent post, Leo reminds us that being mindful is a practice – that is, it’s like any other skill – it takes time to develop.

Check out a snippet from Leo’s post, and for the full wealth of helpful tips see the link below 🙂

“A Small Regular Practice. Form the simple habit of meditating for just two minutes a day (to start with). After you wake up, simply sit comfortably and try to focus on your breath for two minutes. When (not if) your mind wanders, just notice it and label it “thinking.” And gently return to the breath, without harshness. Set a timer, and when the timer goes off, you’re done! If you feel like expanding it by a minute every week or so, feel free to do so, but you don’t have to expand. The benefit of this regular practice is that you learn skills you can take and practice in other parts of your day.” – Leo Babauta
