The secret to happiness...
I was listening to Dax Shephard interview his wife Kristen Bell on his podcast, The Armchair Expert, and they let me in on a little secret to happiness!
Make a list of things that make you feel good.
So when you are down/depressed/tempted to make bad choices and so on, refer back to your list.
Ok here is mine:
Work out. Not my first choice but I always feel good after. At least go for a good walk.
Do something nice for someone. Feeling useful always makes me feel good.
Stretch. Something about stretching clears the head.
Organize/clean out/purge some area of my house.
Sit with my horse for 5 entire minutes with out thinking of anything but gratitude on my mind.
