There is an abundance of research on happiness and gratitude.

I’ve made a personal study of it and here are some of my favorite facts and inspirational thoughts on happiness and gratitude.  Enjoy!:

Happy people generally are more forgiving, helpful, and charitable, having better self-control, and are more tolerant of frustration than unhappy people.

 A 30 percent increase in one spouse’s happiness boosts the other spouse’s happiness, while a drop in one spouse’s happiness drags the other down.

 Yeats:  “We are happy when we are growing.”

 Did you know that the brain is stimulated by surprise?

 Samuel Jackson: “The business of the wise man is to be happy”.

 Research shows that acting in an outgoing, talkative, adventurous or assertive way makes people- even introverts-feel happier.

 Making and sticking to a decision is a source of happiness because it gives you a sense of control, of efficacy, of responsibility.

 At time of financial stress, taking control of your finances- even symbolically- can boost your mood because you’re taking steps to control and improve your situation.

 Gratitude is important to happiness.  Studies show that consistently grateful people are happier and more satisfied with their lives; they even feel more physically healthy and spend more time exercising.

 Gratitude fosters forbearance- it’s harder to feel disappointed with someone when you are feeling grateful toward him or her.

 Gratitude connects you to the natural world, because one of the easiest things to feel grateful for is the beauty of nature. 

 Studies show that happier people are more likely to help other people.

Happier people are more interested in social problems.  They do more volunteer work and contribute more to charity.

 One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy.

One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself!

 Publius Syrus: “No man is happy who does not think himself so”

Saint Therese:  I take care to appear happy and especially to be so.”

 A small child typically laughs more than four hundred times a day, and an adult- seventeen times. 

Laughter can boost immunity and lower blood pressure and cortisol levels and increases people’s tolerance for pain. 

 Often a laughter response to someone’s  exasperation turns the situation around.  A story from Saint Therese:  p.264 The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

 Tolstoy: ” Nothing, can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness.”

Positive thinking plus positive phrasing fosters success!

It takes conscious effort and patience to change-eliminate certain phrases which have become verbal patterns/habits over the years.  It’s easier to do with a buddy…and/or a snap of a rubber band on the wrist each time the incorrect phrase slips out.  The same idea about cursing which can be challenging to stop and will be much appreciated by everyone who spends time with you. I know, I’ve done that!  The following are often said phrases that are best to change:

“That’s not bad” becomes “That’s quite good.”

“No problem” becomes “You’re very welcome, sure, I’ll be happy to!”

“That’s bad” becomes “That’s not good.”

“Don’t worry” becomes “You’ll be fine.”

“Put some effort into it” becomes “Let’s put some energy into it.”

“It’s too hard” becomes “It’s not easy.”

“I’m sick” becomes “I don’t feel well.”

“I forgot” becomes “I didn’t remember.”

“I’ve been working hard” becomes “I’ve been working well.”

“Don’t cry” becomes “That’s OK..”

There’s a lot of negativity going around.  We can each do this and make a difference!

I can help you change language patterns and behavioral patterns too!  Have you bee procrastinating about something lately?  Contact me for FREE strategy consult

Do you ever worry about the long term effects of your current stress levels?  Do you feel like you’re doing enough to relieve your stress?  Recently an interesting new study revealed that people who don’t deal with their stress effectively are more likely to encounter some form of mental illness 10 years down the road!  That’s certainly a call to action!!

You can reduce cortisol levels (high levels have negative health implications) by tapping (EFT- Emotional Freedom Techniques)) and save yourself from negative effects of cumulative stress.   You can find out more about EFT here and contact me for a complimentary consult.  Video skype sessions are as effective with this modality as face to face.  I also meet with clients and small groups in Wantagh, Long Island and on your site.

My EFT Book E Book is also a great resource!

This season Less Stress for the Holidays , Managing Time & Focus to Attain Your Goals  have been well received  topics in my workshop venues. I’ve come to the personal-professional conclusion that what all participants relate to for an easier season is keeping things simple.

I’m an advocate of this philosophy year round- and I think we all go through phases and times where the “complicated version” is attractive.  Extra seasonal demands point to staying with the basics and what matters most. “Being stressed” is about feeling overwhelmed and out of control- and sometimes circumstances are beyond our control.  We always have a choice, however, about how we cope with these circumstances. 

I want to thank each of you in our Long Island Networking community for the wonderful venues and events provided this year and look forward to additional opportunities to build a strong network of caring business owners and colleagues, as well as  international friends and colleagues via social media and the internet groups I belong to.

 See my  Events Page for upcoming stress and anger reducing groups that also will give you a confidence boost!  Give yourself the gift of less stress, increased focus, clarity, creativity, improved health and a terrific attitude! Products Page
