It's easier than many people realize to improve our lives.

For best results, keep this list handy. Add more of what makes you happy. I'd love to know what you suggest, so I can share it with others.

You have many choices. Here's more than 30 options:

  • Sit or stand up straight and smile.

  • Relax. Take slow, deep breaths.

  • Watch some comedy. I like Mystery Science Theatre 3000, Monty Python, the early Three Stooges, and Marx Brothers movies.

  • Eat something healthy and tasty. Savor and enjoy it.

  • Do some housecleaning.

  • Go through your possessions, decide what to keep and give away, recycle and throw out

  • Enjoy a warm shower or bath.

  • Listen to music you love. Sing along.

  • Dance, even by yourself.

  • Look at beautiful art in a museum, a book or online.

  • Go to a movie, show or concert.

  • Read a newspaper, magazine or book.

  • Write a letter to the editor and/or your elected representatives for an issue you care about.

  • Bring something to read or do in a park or café. Appreciate the sights, sounds and smells along  the way.

  • Attend a local sports event. Root for your team.

We can all find happiness
and many kinds of nourishment
