When it comes to happiness, less is more!

Happy June-July readers!

The cover of this week’s Time Magazine features the concept of happiness. Many countries, while less healthy/prosperous than the US, have a higher percentage of happiness. Apparently, less is more, in many cases. I found a few nuggets myself recently. Simple gestures or tasks that feel pretty good.  Here they are, for what it’s worth.

~Taking a surprise guest to visit elderly parents. (Instead of waiting by the window for hours, it’s like Christmas!) We’re never too old for surprises.

 

~Volunteering to be D.D. for a gaggle of 24 year-olds to/from wedding reception. Nothing says fun like fast food drive-thru at 1:30am! And the candid conversation, when you’re the sober one, is priceless!  Plus, nobody gets arrested. Win-win.

 

~Recipient of a sympathy card for a pet was overwhelmed with appreciation. Nothing says, “Been there, suffered that” like a Hallmark.

 

This month, be grateful and do something small for someone. Reap big happiness!

Speaker~Author~Certified Laughter Leader (Seriously!) I look at life with a sense of humor and the gift of laughter and help organizations do the same. I try to write the way I talk, so you will find me less stuffy than Miss Huddleston's English Class and and a step above a toddler. I figure that if we all "play attention" to humor in our daily routines, and we'll all have more joy and less stress in this thing called life.
