John Tesh Shared 3 Ways You Can Boost Your Happiness!

The holidays can be a downer for some people.  But they don’t have to be.  It always helps when you donate your time and energy to someone or something other than yourself and not for money or reward.  It’s always a good thing to enlarge your world and get outside yourself.

I was on the John Tesh website a couple days ago and he had some interesting advice from Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project.  Here is what she learned through doing years of research on the topic.  What makes people happy, and how can everyone increase their own happiness?  Here are three things Gretchen Rubin discovered:

1) Try doing whatever you enjoyed at age 10.  Rubin says we have more in common with our ten ear old self than even we may realize.  Start doing it again and you can recapture the joy you had in your youth!  (This works!  I practice it myself)

2) Seek noveltry and challenge-even if you don’t like change.  This is a biggie.  I’m not into habits much.  When you break out you will see you are much more talented and even stronger than you ever thought!  The human brain is stimulated by surprise and discovery.  It can be something as small as trying a new food, taking a different way home every day, facing a fear you have always had.

3) Read the memoirs of others misfortunes.  You always hear me talking about how we can learn so much from one another.  It will help you appreciate the things that you do have in your life.  The stable things like family and friends and faith.  Live and learn…
