12 step road to happiness

Here’s a list of 12 areas that come up as being the best things we can do to get on the road to happiness fast.

As an author of a book on happiness, I’m regularly asked about the top things that are important to being happy. Here’s a list of 12 areas that get talked about as being the best things we can do to get on the road to happiness fast.  Happiness is a choice – we choose whether to be happy or not. Its not about what is happening out there, its about what is happening inside here –  within yourself.

Road to happiness

  1. Help others regularly – strangers and friends
  2. Exercise daily. Take care of your body as it’s the only one that you’ve got in this life
  3. Appreciate what you have and talk this up in your own mind and in the outside world
  4. Have things to look forward to both big and small. Celebrate the small wins
  5. Try out new ideas that you’ve not tried before
  6. Give to others
  7. Spend more time outside in nature in forests, hills, sea locations, places of beauty
  8. Have a clear direction of where you’d like to go
  9. Connect with people regularly and build friendship
  10. Take a positive approach to thinking, talking and feeling
  11. Be comfortable with who you are now
  12. Keep learning and having adventures

Happiness: it’s an inside job.  You are in charge of how you feel – always. It is a choice.
