    Great information here Cherrie. I try and exercise 4 days or more a week, and my true goal is 6 days a week. I practically have to trip over the treadmill to get to the bathroom, yet sometimes I avoid it. It does relieve stress… and that helps me stay happy!

      Good for you, Dawn. Exercise really does make you feel good. I just try to do the ones that I enjoy doing, that way, it won’t feel like a workout for me 🙂

    always happy when I make it to come to your blog.. LOVE IT.. your great and harmonious vibrations are all over.. THANKS for sharing, we need more and more every day and hope you receive back ten fold.

    As I start reading I got attracted by “hibernation weekends” that you and your family have adopted.. I can imagine the happiness and harmony around all of you.. May God always keep you happy, healthy and in harmony so others can benefit as well.

    Ho yes, I was amazed to read the other 7 ways people keep happy… but the first one was the most amazing on perhaps because you mentioned your family habit.. I am always happy to read happy moments about families.. that is so important..

    Thanks so much once again for a great article to fill my heart with joy.

      Nick, I guess it’s a trait we’ve had all along, growing up from the Philippines. Families there are so “attached”. Our weekend hibernations here is a way of life there. You will also find neighbors almost always ready to chat. I remember my parents when they came over here and were so lonely because there weren’t people to chat with outside the house. They said people here are all too busy working, lol.

    I like that one about going to the park. We’re a LONG way from any parks, for we live ‘way out in the country. But who needs a park when you can go for a walk or a bike ride down a country road with next to no traffic, and enjoy the bird songs and frequent sightings of deer and moose? 🙂

    I’m told that ADD/ADHD doesn’t exist while one is outdoors in nature… and it is certainly true for me. All that incessant mind chatter stops, and I can actually think clearly and simply. It’s wonderfully freeing!

    Being happy is a choice and my lifestyle!

    I love this article being we all want to be happy yet our activities and lifestyles say different. If you want happiness as your core then do things you love and work should be a passion not a choice.

    I made a decision long time ago before to only do and work with what I love and I mean it. I made everything into a great adventure to share a story daily. Even getting up to brush my teeth is an adventure.

    Working with people daily is always different and helping them resolve their daily challenges make me happy. be greatful for being alive each morning and breathing air without assistance. How about good food and clean water. There is nothing for you to not be happy about.

    Most get happiness and want confused. Anything you want you can have if you visualize it, then you can obtain it. Yet, being happy should be more than getting stuff and greed, right?

    Just food for thought and thanks for this amazing article.

    Hi had never heard of Hygge before – what an interesting way to live your life and cope with the dark winter days. Also so interesting that it’s the northern most countries that are the happiest. Plus the changes you’re suggesting are not difficult or expensive .

    I’m wondering how these countries are coping with new technologies – are they like US families where everyone is looking at their own mobile device? And how are their current teens and young adults – are they as happy? do they practice Hygge as well? So interesting.

    Hi Cherrie. Wish I’d heard of Hygge before this winter! Ugh, this one has been horrible, and we’re headed for the deep freeze again.
    Of course, if I did it too many times, I’d be even fatter than I am. I have started exercising regularly, though, and I can’t wait until the weather is nice enough for me to get over to the Lake to dig in my garden and smell my roses. Thanks for a wonderful, uplifting post!

    All the best,
