10 steps to happiness 18 September 2012

Posted by cooperatoby in Uncategorized.

From the BBC’s Making Slough Happy project in 2005. Scientifically proven, what’s more!

1. Plant something and nurture it
2. Count your blessings – at least five – at the end of each day
3. Take time to talk – have an hour-long conversation with a loved one each week
4. Phone a friend whom you have not spoken to for a while and arrange to meet up
5. Give yourself a treat every day and take the time to really enjoy it
6. Have a good laugh at least once a day
7. Get physical – exercise for half an hour three times a week
8. Smile at and/or say hello to a stranger at least once each day
9. Cut your TV viewing by half
10. Spread some kindness – do a good turn for someone every day

Personally, I score about 40%. Must do better…
