Smile! Grinning, even if you don't feel happy, releases serotonin in the brain, instantly lifts your mood and makes you feel better. I try to do this as much as possible. Often, I am seen as weird stocker lady when I do Read more

Develop your spirituality. This one is kind of tough for me. I don't belong to a church. I don't have religion. I guess I'd be considered more of an agnostic than an atheist. I believe that there is a power that guides us as human beings.... Read more
