Making even a small amount of exercise and having a quiet time a priority in your day can help you so much. Also, looking for things that went well in your day can really help boost your mood. I always say that everyday may not be good but there is something good in everyday.

"Just be a nice person!" Great advice - I am reading the How Happiness Happens by Max Lucado and each day I feel blessed and refreshed and ready to tackle the day. I appreciate all the tips.

Excellent strategies!!
Very good information
The more achievable goals of simple steps such as 2 minute meditations and 10 mins. of daily exercise spoke to me. I can do that! I appreciated Susan's approach to happiness and creating an approachable plan was what I needed.
Excellent session! Provided very valuable information.
