How to be happy:
~Practice, practice, practice~

The good news is that your choices, thoughts and actions can influence your level of happiness. It's not as easy as flipping a switch, but you can turn up your happiness level. Here's how to get started on the path to creating a happier you.

#Invest in relationships

~Surround yourself with happy people.

~Being around people who are content buoys your own mood. And by being happy yourself, you give something back to those around you.

~Friends and family help you celebrate life's successes and support you in difficult times.

~Although it's easy to take friends and family for granted, these relationships need nurturing.

~Build up your emotional account with kind words and actions.

~Be careful and gracious with critique. Let people know that you appreciate what they do for you or even just that you're glad they're part of your life.

##The health benefits of positive thinking

~Researchers continue to explore the effects of positive thinking and optimism on health. Health benefits that positive thinking may provide include:

1.Increased life span
2.Lower rates of depression
3.Lower levels of distress
4.Greater resistance to the common cold
5.Better psychological and physical well-being
6.Reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease
7.Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress.

It's unclear why people who engage in positive thinking experience these health benefits. One theory is that having a positive outlook enables you to cope better with stressful situations, which reduces the harmful health effects of stress on your body.

It's also thought that positive and optimistic people tend to live healthier lifestyles — they get more physical activity, follow a healthier diet, and don't smoke or drink alcohol in excess.

Thats all folks...
Sing the happy song...
