Gretchen Rubin over at the happiness project has 5 happiness hacks that are worth considering.
Would following even one help you enjoy your life more? Or make you more enjoyable to live with and work with?
# 1 Impulse to tidy up?
Add File 13 – the rubbish bin. See if you can fill it up!
# 2 Determined to exercise some self-control?
Cut down the times you have to self-control to no more than 2 a day! Stop beating yourself up. Side-step nonsense.
# 3 Think you need a treat to lift you up?
Live well all the time! Make each meal a treat. Tidy up as you go. Live elegantly!
# 4 Think you need to help people in the world?
Help people close to home! Look around the room! Halve some else’s irritation in your own kitchen, your own office, your own commuter train.
An irritation shared is usually quartered.
# 5 Resolving to do something?
Don’t. If you must have a resolution, have one, till it is done! Pick the most important and don’t put anything else on the list!
