10 #Tips for a #HappyLife - Smile

I was told that there are FOUR basic emotions - Anger, Sadness, Happiness, and Worry. Everything else is a combination of those in varying degrees (In Inside Out, they used Disgust and Fear, but hey, it's not an exact science - don't worry about it!)

Either way you slice it, HAPPINESS is OUTNUMBERED!

That's why it takes a lot of effort to get over a tough situation.
That's why feeling happy and positive is so awesome!
That's why we need to spread more of it around.

It's so easy to criticize and doubt and make fun of others - Twitter and social media have become trumpets of negativity. So much arguing. No compromise or giving others a chance or trying to see things from another perspective. Blech!

Remember when TVs were called "idiot boxes?" Well, it looks like phones and devices are taking their place, but they're worse. They possess people! People become obsessed with them. They can't live without the little buggers. The instant feedback is addictive. And many base their happiness on the number of "likes" or "followers" they have.

My hope is for people to realize we need to disconnect from our devices sometimes and have in person, human interactions. Put down the device and look around. Communicate face to face. Take a walk without your earbuds and listen to nature. Have a device-free meal and talk to your family.

This Device Free Dinner video made me smile =)


Share a real live smile, not just an emoji!
Smiles are healthy contagious!
Spread happiness with a smile!

Have a happy week!

  4. Smiles do make you and everyone around you feel better. About technology - there's a time and place for everything and we don't need our devices at the dinner table. Human interactions are the best.
