1. I love all of your tips! Smiling can actually lower your blood pressure and boost your immune system. How is that for extra benefits.

    My current intention is take more time out, and when I do to use it wisely, I want to slow things down and sit in nature or paint or read or just sit. That will make me more happy.

  2. There is definitely something to be said about making the choice to “do” happiness instead of just waiting for your sadness to go away. I often say that we are “beings of inertia”, and that doing things that bring joy and productivity will lead to more joy and more productivity.

    That said, I also firmly believe that if there is something painful, it’s best not to avoid it. I find that saying what I’m feeling out loud can be very helpful in moving from sadness or pain into joy and happiness!

    Great post!
