Fwd: Discover a tried and proven way for you to achieve happiness in 2013

Discover a tried and proven way for you to achieve happiness in 2013

Imagine being happy all the time. How would your
life be different if you were happy all the time?

All of us want to be happy. In fact in most polls people
say that they want peace and happiness more than
anything else in the world. The problem is: most of us
are looking in the wrong places.

But all has recently been revealed thanks to a multi
disciplinary team of six British specialists who span
a variety of disciplines from psychology, psychotherapy
to economics who embarked on an unusual social experiment.

Their unusual challenge?

What does it take to make residents of a town happy?

During their experiment in Slough, a commuter belt
town, twenty two miles from the centre of London
they discovered 10 "seeds of happiness".

Ten things which when you do them all regularly will
not only improve your life in your community but will
make you happy and contented.

What are they?

1. Plant something and nurture it. When you water and
feed plants they grow. When you water and feed the
seeds of your interest- they grow.

2. At the end of each day stop and think how fortunate
you are. Think of five things in your life that you are grateful for.

3. Make time to talk to your partner. Every week sit down
for at least an hour and talk with your partner or
someone you love. That's one hour without answering
the 'phone or watching TV or listening to music. One
uninterrupted hour with your loved one.

4. Make that 'phone call that you keep promising yourself
you will make. Contact the friend with whom you haven't
spoken for a while.

5. Treat yourself. Give yourself a treat every day and take
the time to really enjoy it. Be good to yourself. This
simple act breeds; self confidence and positivity and

6. Have a good laugh at least once a day. Laughter helps
to stimulate your immune system. Research shows that
laughter is important for people who survive a heart attack.
It has been found that  people are less likely to have a
second attack, need less medication and have lower
blood pressure if they allow themselves to see and laugh
at humorous situations each day.

7. Exercise. Make the effort to walk, run, jog, swim, whatever
for half an hour three times a week. Guaranteed to reduce
stress and make you feel good.

8. Every day smile at and/or say hello to a stranger. Smiling
is not only good for the person receiving it also makes you
feel good too.

9. How long do you spend watching TV? Research show
that too much TV actually causes unhappiness. So make
an effort to cut your viewing time by half.

10. Every Day do a good turn for someone.

Now it's down to you.
