Path to true happiness ‘revealed’

Path to true happiness ‘revealed’

The following are the suggested points to happiness

  1. Plant something and nurture it
  2. Count your blessings – at least five – at the end of each day
  3. Take time to talk – have an hour-long conversation with a loved one each week
  4. Phone a friend whom you have not spoken to for a while and arrange to meet up
  5. Give yourself a treat every day and take the time to really enjoy it
  6. Have a good laugh at least once a day
  7. Get physical – exercise for half an hour three times a week
  8. Smile at and/or say hello to a stranger at least once each day
  9. Cut your TV viewing by half
  10. Spread some kindness – do a good turn for someone every day

These are all good ideas and I think that people should follow them.
The most content people I have met have been people who do not own a TV or mobile phone, but who always phone their long list of friends at least once a month to “keep in touch”.
Seems they were on the right track to happiness.
I will continue my own path to happiness, or at least enlightenment, and try these points.
