Ten Rules for Happier Living

Happier living is a good thing. However, we sometimes feel it is much like an end hard to attain. But, why should happiness be just a tool, a means to an end? It's a good thing in its own right, a better way to be. And it's not that hard to achieve. Just focus on all the good things you have and are a part of. Just try think different way. A proper relationship with God of course is the foundation for happiness. But to fully experience that happiness in daily life, we must build on that foundation in practical ways. This must be simple, easy, fun thing that we can all do. This is practical ways from Ten Rules for Happier Living:

1. Give something away.
2. Do a kindness.
3. Always give thanks.
4. Work with vim and vigor.
5. Visit the elderly and learn from their experience.
6. Look intently into the face of a baby and marvel.
7. Laugh often—it’s life’s lubricant.
8. Pray to know God’s way.
9. Plan as though you will live forever—you will.
10. Live as though today is your last day on earth.

These are great ideas for living a happy life. Life is good chances for us to be happy. We all have them, why not make them work for us rather than against us? Practice each of these rules with praise, and your happiness will be complete.

One thing to note: however, living happily sometimes takes no effort to achieve. There are times when happiness is in the air, and all you need to do is open yourself to it and allow it to enter your soul. We're now and here in such a time. Just experience it, just don't shut it out. Happiness means what you are. So happiness ultimately is not a goal to achieve. It's what we are, it's our true existence.
