4th October 2010 todays facebook email

Come to the edge." "We can't. We're afraid." "Come to the edge." "We can't. We will fall!" "Come to the edge." And they came. And he pushed them. And they flew. Guillaume Apollinaire
Another Monday morning rolls around, I think it’s a dry one but it’s so dark outside I can’t really tell. So I’ve noticed not many of you did the gratitude thing on my group wall, and those that did only did it once or twice. Come on you lot don’t you want to be happier? If you don’t make the effort with things you’re not going to succeed, that’s everything not just your diet. So today’s mission is to get lots of gratitude’s on my wall please, or I might not send another email this week! Threats eh…..

Today I am grateful for
- Going to bed at 9pm last night because I woke up at 2am with stomach pains and haven’t been able to go back to sleep, so at least I got 5 hours sleep.
- My walk in the rain yesterday morning with Alfie, I may have got soaked through but we enjoyed it nonetheless.
- My moms constant stream of amusement, if she lost her glasses once this weekend she’s lost them a dozen times!

And whilst we’re on the subject of getting happier in our lives, here are some tips to help you find happiness

Happiness is a state of being that only you can create. Happiness is a choice that you make. Using what I've learned, here I’m going to share with you the best tips on happiness that can help you to create happiness in your life! Get ready to smile, chant, eat dark chocolate and dream... big!

Be Your Own BFF
Enjoy your own company. Embrace everything about you! Without a doubt, it’s the most important step towards being a happy person.

Smile, Giggle, Snigger, or Chuckle!
Smiling releases serotonin in the brain, which instantaneously gives your mood a lift.

Warm Up Your Tootsies
Pull on your best pair of warm socks, wiggle your toes and enjoy a cozy kind of bliss.

Sing Out Loud!
Shut the doors and the windows tight, put on your favorite song, and let your voice ring!

Indulge in Dark Chocolate
Savor a small piece and watch your mood improve.

Expect a Miracle
Believe that something wonderful will happen for you today. The universe is waiting to shower happy blessings on you.

Meditate, Pray, or Chant
Research shows that people who are spiritual tend to be happier and healthier than those who are not.

Laugh at Your Shortcomings
We all make mistakes; none of us is perfect. Forgive your imperfections, accept your faults, and laugh.

Sleep, Baby, Sleep
Seven or eight hours each night should increase your energy and decrease moodiness.

Count Your Blessings Daily
Gratitude, the emotion of thankfulness, is one of the key ingredients for living a happy life. Make gratitude a habit and happiness will be yours.

Wake Up Early!
Start the day off on a happy foot, with a happy thought. The morning hours are full of energy.

Let the Sun Shine In
20 minutes of sunlight per day improves mood and wards of Seasonal Affection Disorder (SAD).

Create a Positive Affirmation
Think it, read it, say it, sing it! "My happiness brings me more happiness."

Say "Good Job!"
Give yourself permission to pat yourself on the back. Recognize your accomplishments and positive qualities.

Catch Happiness from Others
Remembering that happiness is contagious, surround yourself with happy, positive people who share your values, goals, and dreams.

Grow a Garden
Watching plants grow and thrive under your care is thrilling!

Pencil in 'Quiet Time’
Each and every day sit awhile, without television, without magazines, without the Internet. Just be!

Look to the Future
Set goals and then make plans to succeed and take action. Pursuing something we value always makes us happy.

Accept What You Cannot Change
Don't waste your precious time, energy, or thoughts on something that is beyond your control. Let it go.

Take a Cat Nap
A 10-minute nap is all it takes to rejuvenate your spirit and get the happiness to flow.

Love Everything
Love who you are. Love what you are doing. Love the person you're with. Love your friends and your enemies, too. Love! Love! Love!

Remember life starts now.

Are you living yet? And is it a happy life?
