Practice Your Happy

We can clap along with Pharrelle all day and sing about being happy, but some days we just ain't feelin' it. You have most likely turned the station at least once when you heard it because you just were not in the mood...


And that's OK, it's normal to work thru emotions and taking adequate time to process them. However, It's not OK to stay in a bad place. Downward spirals gain momentum as you keep the negative dark ones in park. So, besides singing a jingle or two, what other practical things can we do to keep happiness alive?


Glad you asked. Below is a link to 25 ways to be 40% happier. It's always good to pick up a point or two...


3 Quick Notables:

  • Aim for equal parts of pleasure and purpose. That's so key because a tricky deceptive part on being human is the idea that pleasure = happiness, and it also trumps purpose. Not true. Deeper purpose brings happiness, not the other way around. Likewise, happiness is not the same as contentment or joy. They do go hand in hand yes, but joy is heart smile more than a face smile. It's possible to be content and be working thru an unhappy place at the same time.
  • Be a fair weather facebooker. Social media can effect our moods. And those who are parents of teens, you know what we mean. Try taking a step back from checking it all the time and see if youI feel a little more energized.
  • "Neuroscientists say viewing natural settings make us more energized, generous, and ecstatic, likely because we evolved to enjoy natural resources." Get your dose of Vitamin G- for green, and kick in Outdoorphins. Also, people who sweat for 20 minutes a day are 85% happier than people who don't.

So next time you hear Pharrelle sing about being happy, put a plan to that idea by doing something today and practice your happy!
