Real Life: 3 Secrets to a Better Life

I happened upon this website that recommends things we should do in life...in general.
Some of them see too tedious to be realistic.
Some of them, if applied, I believe will really make life better.

Here are my three favorite...

Live in THIS moment.This really is the truth. Another way to think about it is to always say YES. Often, we give excuses about what we have to do later as to why we can't LIVE now. If you try saying yes once for every 3 no's, you will see an immediate enhanced life. That Happy hour after work may have led to a new spouse. The "why not" attitude has led me to red carpet premieres, trips around the world, and lots of free and unexpected experiences.

Smile more often.
Whenever you get a grin on your face, your brain is releasing serotonin, the happy hormone. So besides the science behind it, smiling is the natural way to force yourself to be happy. it really works. I've tested and can say, taking it up a notch to even making yourself laugh, even if it is disingenuous, really can change your mood. Many people practice smiling for five minutes straight in the morning to get themselves in a great mood for the day. It is a very powerful tool that is utilized less and less as we grow older and need happiness more than ever. In a world where it is easy to get caught up in the seriousness of it, just remember that you are ultimately in control of how you feel. So I make sure that I can try to belly laugh/laugh until I cry, at least once a day. Help others.This is a must. Once you realize that you gain nothing in life by living for yourself, you will literally start to see your life magnify to heights you've never know.Check out this these seven reasons:
  • Helping people has a ripple effect. If you help someone they will feel more obliged to help someone else, and so on. Pay it forward
  • You grow by giving and helping others. It can change you in ways you never expected
  • Your relationship with that person will become stronger
  • It’s the most fulfilling thing you can do on this planet. It not only feels amazing physically, you also feel like a good person
  • You might be able to call in a favor later when you need some help
  • Karma (if you believe in it)
  • Because there are more people in this world than just you
