While I was working on a web page for a client I ran across this tidbit of info. (don’t ask – Clicked the wrong link)
The BBC – Happiness Experiment

Here is The Happiness Manifesto from there.

  • Get physical. Exercise for half an hour three times a week.
  • Count your blessings. At the end of each day, reflect on at least five things you’re grateful for.
  • Talk time. Have an hour-long uninterrupted conversation with your partner or closest friend each week.
  • Plant something. Even if it’s a window box or pot plant. Keep it alive!
  • Cut your TV viewing by half.
  • Smile at and/or say hello to a stranger. At least once each day.
  • Phone a friend. Make contact with at least one friend or relation you have not been in contact for a while and arrange to meet up.
  • Have a good laugh at least once a day.
  • Every day make sure you give yourself a treat. Take time to really enjoy this.
  • Daily kindness. Do an extra good turn for someone each day.

Here is a PDF of the Manifesto so you can print it out.

This is from the BBC TV Series Making Slough Happy. Seems like an interesting TV Show – Wonder if it is on BBS America.
