Raising Your Happiness Vibes – Day 474


I thought we could do with a page of things we could do to take time out for nurturing and self care. You might have seen my page at I Thought You Loved Me. 🙂

Once you log in you will see a very long list of ideas for nurturing others and yourself. A little bit of self care for us all.

The items listed below are also a terrific list of ideas for increasing your happiness. On the right, is a great little video talk by Dan Gilbert about his research into happiness… I think you’ll find it very interesting viewing! 🙂

The Dalai Lama said, “I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness….the very motion of our life is towards happiness.” When asked if it is really possible to be happy, the Dalai Lama replied, “”Yes, I believe that happiness can be achieved through training the mind.” “By bringing about a certain inner discipline,” the Dalai Lama continues, “we can undergo a transformation of our attitude, our entire outlook and approach to living.”

What types of people are more likely to be happy? A new National Bureau of Economic Research working paper called “International Happiness,” by economists David G. Blanchflower of Dartmouth College in the U.S. and Andrew J. Oswald of the University of Warwick in England, offers some insights.

This is a new video I created just for this list, taking a few items from the list of 365 below and placing them within the video. You can also see the share page for Raising Your Happiness Vibes
