How to achieve a happy life...

An American psychologist said; living a happy life is a fine art which entails 10 things:
1) Do a work that you love. If you can not do that, then find a hobby that you love and do it in your spare time and reinforce it.
2) Take care of your health for it is the spirit of happiness. This means being moderate in eating and drinking, exercising regularly and avoiding bad habits.
3)  Have a goal in life, for this will give you motivation and energy.
4) Take life as it comes, and accept the bitter and the sweet.
5) Live in the present, with no regret for the past and no anxiety about tomorrow that has yet to come.
6) Think hard about any action or decision, and do not blame anyone else for your decision or its consequences.
7)  Look at those who are worse off than you.
8) have the habit of smiling and being cheerful, and keep company with optimistic people.
9) Strive to make others happy so that you may benefit from the atmosphere of happiness.
10) Make the most of the occasions of happiness and joy, and regard them as necessary to renew your own happiness.
” Enjoy today and make the most of
it; Look for things that will prevent
pain from happening before it attacks
you.”
From the book:
“You can be the happiest woman in the world”
by Dr A’id al-Qarni
