BYOH: Build Your Own Happiness or How to hack your own happiness buttons.
In the meantime, remember that you are still breathing, the sun is still shining, there are still two whole months before Trump becomes president. Use that time to focus on building up your reserves of happiness habits that will make the hard times, that are coming, easier to deal with. Remember your love of music, your love of literature, your love of dancing, the love of your family and friends. Remember to take care of yourself.
Bad things are going to happen, no matter how many happiness buttons you push; no matter how positive your outlook on life. It’s how you handle those bad things that counts. Finding the silver lining is a happiness button that can help you see a little light in those dark, stormy, moments.
It may not always work out. Some people are rude ALL the time, but most folks aren’t. In order to keep peace in your life and make sure that your happiness buttons can get a boost, it pays to remember to show everyone a little compassion and whenever you can, show a little more kindness than usual.
Coworkers, customers and friends, leave my desk with a smile on their face, whenever my candy dish is full. Their smiles make me smile and it’s harder to spread negativity when you are loving on a piece of chocolate. You can try, but you’ll still be smiling.
