i was grasping for anything that might hold me together and prove that i wasn't crazy, so i watched this interview with a guy that had written a book about happiness
he was on television with a goofy grin, wearing red chucks, and he was too frigging happy for me and i seriously wanted to reach through the TV and choke him out. I would've probably been that happy too, if i had made millions selling books on how to be happy and was poised to make a million more just for being on this show
this was his solution
- spend two minutes everyday thinking of three things that you are grateful for and they must be different things everyday
- sometime within a 24 hour period, recall a situation that had happened to you that was meaningful and write in depth about it, essentially double dipping on your happiness experience
- exercise for 15 minutes everyday
- send a thank you email, note, or praise someone everyday
if you do all of these things for 21 days, you will be happier........smh, where is my bag of nickels.
