My favorite tip was to get enough sleep. I have been working on that one for a long time, way before reading this book. Because I do NOT function well at all if I don’t get enough sleep. I like winter because I can go to bed at 7:30 or so and get up early and I sleep really well. Summer is harder because of the days being longer.
Some of the other tips are to be grateful, to laugh more, to get outside more, to be kind, to eat properly, manage your time, and have good relationships. Each has several different things you can do. she recommends picking two or three to start with.
That time management thing is a really good one. Gave me some more ideas for how to get everything done, that really NEEDS to get done.
I liked this book and I am going to try a few of the things that I wasn’t already doing. There were a few ideas to help with the things I was already doing.
If you want to be happier, read this book, practice at least a few of the tips, and in a few weeks you will be a happier person.
Got to actually do the things. Just reading might help some, but it won’t help much.
