  • What Happy People Have In Common So, what makes happy people, well, happy people? It seems that happy people tend to have a few things in common. Very happy people are found to be very social, and have stronger romantic and social relationships with others than less-happy people. Research has also found happy people to be energetic, decisive, creative, social, trusting, loving, and responsive. Rather than being strongly linked to external characteristics like socioeconomic status, gender or age, happiness is more positively associated with having a philosophical view of life, using laughter and humor, being able to relate to others, having problem-solving skills, engaging in meaningful pursuits and leisure activities, living in a positive environment, and maintaining a well-balanced lifestyle. Secrets to Being Happy There are several routes to happiness. Some are quick and bring immediate positive feelings, and others take more time and bring lasting and repeated feelings of happiness. The following resources bring several strategies from both categories, which can help you become -- and stay -- one of the world’s happy people.
  • Psalm 5:3 (New International Version)  3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;  in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Patience reveals our faith in God’s timing, omnipotence, and love.  Remember His promises in Romans 8:28 , “all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” The “all things” include the things that try our patience.
  • Epictetus – “He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has” Matthew 18:21-22 (New International Version) The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant  21Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?"  22Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven. Recommended Reading – “A Forgiveness Journal”
  • Mind – thoughts Byrd Baggett – “Never measure your self-worth against other people’s net worth” Count your blessings and focus on what you need to do – not just the situation you are in. Abraham Lincoln – “Most folks are about as happy as they make their minds to be”
  • Body – Action Exercise! Even if it’s just a short walk everyday. Stay active -
  • Spirit – Faith and Feelings Be Prayerful Read the bible God’s will is not always done – this is why we pray for it in the Lord’s prayer. But now that it has happened, what is God’s will in how you deal with it? Psalm 56: 3-4 – When I am afraid, I will trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
