At TumbleRoot, we are passing around a book called The Happiness Project. It’s not every day that we have the time to curl up with a book, but we were intrigued by the prospect of bringing more happiness into our lives.

The Happiness Project follows author Gretchen Rubin’s project to find more happiness over one year. Month-by-month, she introduces and follows happiness resolutions to improve her overall well-being. Although not all of her resolutions stick for the entire year, it’s entertaining to read about her journey.

It may sound a little touchy-feely, but we love the tangible goals she sets and her truthful analysis of the changes she makes in her life.

Here’s a few resolutions to get you inspired:

1. Tackle a nagging task.
2. Fight right. (In relationships, avoid using bombs like “You never” or “You always”)
3. Enjoy now. (Enjoy anticipation)
4. Sing in the morning.
5. Start a collection.
6. Don’t gossip.
7. Give something up. (Examples: processed sugar, bottled water, lottery tickets, sunbathing, checking

Go get happy!

    I have been thinking about this as there is a lot of dcosusiisn going on in the media about what makes a person happy, and indeed what is happiness. To me it is a state of mind but what makes me happy? There are all the usual trite comments about money, health, property. However I can think of many people who have these, all or in any mix, and are not happy. There is also one which is being mooted around that you can create happiness by doing a good turn for a stranger every day. In this climate I can foresee a lot of problems if a good deed is forced on someone, not everyone would accept it in the spirit it is meant. From several happenings and dcosusiisns I have had this week I have come to the conclusion that what makes me happy is friendship. For this and in this I am truly happy. I hope this does not make me seem smug but it is how I feel, I know it is not advice but hope other contributors may feel the same way.
