I should know better. I have been taking an online course through the University of California at Berkeley titled "The Science of Happiness." Yep, can't make this up either...one of the more prestigious universities offers a course in happiness..... well they are based in the warm California sunshine.
Part of what I learned, we all already knew, taking care of ourselves physically and emotionally increase our state of happiness. Getting enough sleep, exercise, drinking water and eating right are important parts of being happy. The March Wellness challenge highlighted these concepts. Happiness is also positively correlated to being around people who care and think positively. People who think positive thoughts tend to wear a smile, even without realizing it. This adds to the state of happiness!
So, I hope to put a smile on your face with two short videos. One on tying shoelaces (I was devastated this week to discover I have been doing it wrong my entire life) and the second is a free website called PowToon.
