The Doctors want you to know that it is possible to be happy every day -- in fact, being happy is actually a choice.
Dr. Ian Smith, who wrote "Happy: Simple Steps to Get the Most Out of Life", shares, "There are little things you can do to become not just better, but happier at the same time." Dr. Ian's tips on how to choose happiness include:
- Commit to 5 acts of kindness per week - Performing simple kind acts will help someone else while also making you feel great
- List 3 things that went well each day - Dr. Ian explains keeping tracking of life's good things can help you stay positive
- Spend some money on someone else once a week - He says being generous not only feels great, it just might come back to you
- Forgive - This might be someone else or something you have done, said, or felt
Dr. Ian adds, "Challenge yourself to be a little better each day. Open your mind, open your heart, and have some fun."
