The road to happiness begins with a smile. Simple, yet true. Just smiling lefts your energy. When a smile seems to hard to do, watch a funny movie, or go to You Tube and enter in funny videos.
Another helpful hint is writing a list of all the things you are grateful for.

Below are eight ways I maintain my happy mood:
1] Every morning I sing in the shower “Every little cell in my body is happy, every little cells in my body feels good. I am so glad I feel so good because every little cell in my body is well”. This little song starts my day off in a positive mood.
2] My way of meditating is spending solitude time in nature. Seeing, feeling, and hearing all the wondrous beauty in the world.
3] When am at work I set a timer to ring every hour. When it rings, I hit my play button for one of my favorite songs and take a 10 minute dance breaks or mini walk away from my computer. This allows me to love my body and refresh my mind.
4] I use to have a sugar addiction, which took me sometime to overcome, however, I have discovered what I feed my body determines how I will feel.
5] Number five may sound silly, but it works. I carry an imaginary eraser in my pocket. Whenever I fall into self-doubt, or criticisms, I take out my imaginary eraser and erase and replace with a positive affirmation, or thought. This little tool really has helped me ‘walk my talk’.
6] I love to read and listen to positive motivational leaders to keep my self-update on scientific research on the power of the mind, plus it feeds my soul.
7] Every night I write down what I am grateful for, which is very helpful in the time of mourning. Then I go outside and send my love to all my invisible relationships. I listen to the wind, watch for a shooting star, or for a breeze blowing by. Thus building a connection to the unseen.
8] Most importantly I am a woman of unshakable faith. Your faith is increased if you pay attention. Notice how things naturally seem so much better when you have total faith.
