10 Habits That Will Make You Happier

Only true measure of personal success is happiness. It’s almost impossible to make others happy if you’re not happy yourself and making other people happy is the highest expression of success.
Keeping above mentioned facts in view, here are ten small changes that you can make to your daily routine that, if you’re like most people, will immediately increase the amount of happiness in your life:

1. Hope


Life, more often than not lives up to (or down to) your expectations. Therefore, when you get up from bed every morning, think about something positive first up and tell yourself: “something wonderful is going to happen today.” Guess what? You’re probably right.

2. Plan and Prioritize:

The most common cause of stress is a busy schedule filled with too much work to do.  Instead of being obsess about it, just pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life. Do that first and then pick the next one.

3. Give away gifts:


By giving away gifts I do not mean a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be anything ranging from your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.

4. Avoid Conversations About Disputed Topics:

Debates about politics and religion never have a happy ending because they get people all riled up over things they can’t control. When such topics surface, bow out of discussion by saying something like: “Talking about that stuff makes my head hurt.”

5. Always Think Positive About People: 

Because you can’t read minds, hence don’t assume about the “why” behind the “what” that people do. Attributing evil motives to other people’s weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.

6. Forgive:

 

Try to forgive all those who have offended you. It will cool down your mind and make your life easier.

7. Eat Good Quality Food Slowly:

In our daily routine we are always running late by 5 minutes and we can’t avoid scarfing something quick to keep us up and running. But still, at least once a day try to eat something really delicious, like a small chunk of fine cheese or an imported chocolate. Focus on it; taste it; savor it.

8. Don’t Remain Preoccupied With The Thought Of Results:

Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but gets you no where, it originates from focusing on events that are outside our control and is the biggest enemy of happiness. Once you have executed your plan, there is nothing more that you can do. Focus on the job at hand rather than some weird fantasy of what might happen.

9. Turn off “background” TV:


The entire point of broadcast television is to make you dissatisfied with your life so that you will buy more stuff. While most of the households leave their television sets on as “background noise” while they are doing other things. Hence turn off your television set to avoid being subliminally programmed to be a mindless consumer?

10. Be Grateful:


Write down at least one wonderful thing that happened during the course of the day, before going to bed. It might be something as small as a making a child laugh or something as huge as a million dollar deal. Whatever it is, be grateful for that day because it will never come again.

YOUR BODY ON PROCESSED FOODS

I saw this video awhile back but I wanted to share it with those who haven’t seen it. Most people know how I feel about processed foods (I hate them) and this video shows how your body digests whole foods versus processed foods.

The study was conducted by Stefani Bardin and Dr. Braden Kuo at Harvard University. This is an amazing video because first it shows how our body responds to different foods and secondly it shows how amazing technology is and how amazing the human mind is for creating a study like this.

Watch the video and let me know what you think of the study.

How to find your other HALF?

People use to find their partners by searching in crowd, some are dating through blind dating others where introduced into some common friends of friends. We are destined to meet our half but we should learn how to wait because God is busy in writing each love stories, don’t search for them let it happen through the plans of God. He’s the only one who knows our other half instead of searching what if you just put your time in doing something that is worth it and by the time you meet your other half you will tell all your stories in life that is being keep for a long time because of waiting to meet him or her. 🙂

 

Someday, you’ll find your ‘other half’

and the Exciting part for a Debutant is to receive her 18 Blue Bills or the 18 Thousands

and for the Food Enthusiast out there, Who can’t loved the Filipino Delicacies in a buffet like this hearing out the plates, spoon and forks, the wine glasses and the murmurs of everyone in each food. yummy isn’t it ? though you’re in a diet once the food where serve in front of you, you can never resist it especially when its palatable,it’s presentation, colors and the herbs and spices that your smelling were great!

And to start the Feast the Debutant must blow her Candles and make a wish! 🙂

The most Happiest part for a Debutant is to hear the wishes of her very special Family especially the speech that is Coming from her Parents. As we all know once a parent give his/her child a word it just pass by but once it is done in a right time a tear will run down to their eyes

As We grow older the more we get stronger and bolder. but with this kind of experience we will reminisce each details because it will serve as an idea for us that we we’re a person who had experience a once in a lifetime event in our life.

One for One

I Created this post not to boast that I have a new pair of TOMS Shoe but to tell everyone that by just buying a pair of Shoes from TOMS you already helped a child to have one, Isn’t it good that in a simple way you’ve helped a child to walk with shoes and later on there is no child walking on bare foot. Since the season is appropriate I encourage you all that GO! you can give TOMS Shoe as a Gift. Christmas is not just about receiving gifts it’s all about How Jesus was born and How our God loved us that he Gave his only son for Us, so why not give when you have . Giving gifts doesn’t need to be expensive let us use our Imagination, I’ve read some post of TOMS Fair in Philippines they customize their own shoe and its on a hand paint isn’t it so unique? I’m the person who will get those shoe will thank you for with all their hearts because you do it. Here are some photos of the Advocacy of TOMS Philippines and TOMS
