Happiness And Your Well Being

Wikipedia defines well-being as the state of being healthy, happy or prosperous. It defines happiness as a mental state of well-being characterized by positive emotions, contentment, intense joy, self-actualization.

Do you remember being taught this song as a child?

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.

What does your face show?

You don’t have to tell how you live each day;
You don’t have to say if you work or you play.
A tried, true barometer serves in the place–
However you live, it will show in your face.

The false, the deceit that you bear in your heart,
Will not stay inside where it first got a start;
For sinew and blood are a thin veil of lace–
What you wear in your heart, you wear in your face.

If your life is selfless, if for others you live,
For not what you get, but how much you can give;
If you live close to God in His infinite grace–
You don’t have to tell it, it shows in your face.


There are several small steps you can take to improve your state of well-being through happiness. But before we discuss those, you need to understand that no one else can make you happy.

Happiness is an emotion that comes from within. The temporary joy you experience from things, events, places, people only contribute to your overall state of being.

"Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything, and have no regrets. Life is to short to be anything but HAPPY! ~ Unknown

Here are 9 Easy Steps to Improve Your Happiness:

Count Your Blessings this is the easiest thing on the list. Start counting your blessings before you even get out of bed.

Fake It if you're not feeling happy. Make a conscious effort to put a smile on your face.

Make A List of Affirmations, or as Noah St. John teaches, Afformations. They automatically put you in a state of positive thinking.

Stay Away From Vampires and I don't mean the ones that suck blood. I'm talking about the people around you who are unhappy and suck your energy dry. You know who they are.

Think of Solutions and not of the problems. Just a minor change in your thought patterns can make big changes in your happiness.

Meditate/Pray then have the faith to let your problems go. Let go, Let God may seem trite, but it's true.

Do Something For You...you know what it is. The world won't stop revolving while you take a little time for fun.

Accept Yourself because you are worthy of health, wealth and happiness. I Just Want To Celebrate

Make Someone Else Happy you might find that when you stop thinking about yourself things get a whole lot better.

The Simple Secrets to Happiness and Finding Joy

Affirmation vs. Afformations

Are affirmations working for you? Are you affirming out loud and thinking yeah right?

That may be why affirmations aren't working for you. Your subconscious is acting on what you're thinking and not what you're saying. So what can be done about it? I believe Afformations are the answer. What are Afformations you ask.

My friend Noah St. John invented Afformations, and they're taking the self-help world by storm.

I've been using Afformations ever since I first heard Noah talk about how he discovered them, because he shows you how to manifest your desires FASTER and EASIER than ever before.

And now Noah's giving away a free sample of his iAfform Audios that will change your subconscious thought patterns while you're busy doing other things!

Check it out, it's totally awesome...

Students in a Marshall Texas high school Biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was worth 70 points:

'Name seven advantages of mother's milk.'

A future Texas Aggie in the classroom wrote:

1) It is perfect formula for the child.

2) It provides immunity against several diseases.

3) It is always the right temperature.

4) It is inexpensive.

5) It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa.

6) It is always available as needed.

And then, he was stuck. Finally in desperation, just before the bell rang, he wrote...

7) It comes in 2 cute containers.

The boy got an A


1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water and is fat.
3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
4. A tortoise doesn't run, does nothing ..yet lives for 450 years.


Life Explained:

On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"And God said that it was good.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, dotricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."

The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"

And God, again said that it was good.

On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and givemilk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"

And God agreed it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."

But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and theten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."

So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support ourfamily. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

And that my friends is why we should be more specific in our requests. Life has now been explained to you.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service. If you are looking for me I will be on the front porch.
