I have not updated in a while, but I have been working hard at getting my sleep and upping my Happiness Quotient. I just read a blog about a woman who did one act of kindness for 60 days leading up to her 60th birthday. I turn 46 next month so I thought I would give this a try. I posted a blog of the same title as this post. I plan to do one act of kindness each day until my birthday. What a great way to count down until my birthday. Anyone interested in jo...

The book is organized by months but you can do it at your own pace or start any time during the year. <BR> <BR> Do you feel happier, calmer or more organized? Do you feel you've boosted your energy? <BR> <BR> My apartment is still disorganized, but I feel better! I'm going to start the February projects but keep up with these ones. <BR> Sat, 31 Jan 2015 22:36:09 EST Act more energetic http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=27577x61745x60483556 "act the way I want to feel" (Gretchen) <BR> <BR> "action and feeling go together, and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not" (William James) <BR> <BR> I'm working on ACTING more energetic. I try to model alert posture at work, lively energy when I'm walking, confidence in crowds...how about you?

It is a sociological look at communities and how our connections (or social capital) have been diminishing every since the 40's and 50's. We go to church less, we invite people over for dinner or conversation less, we attend club meetings less, and yes - we are not participating in bowling leagues as we once did.

Mon, 2 Dec 2013 10:53:10 EST The Happiness Project - find the book! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x61745x55837605 I have this book! I bought it a couple years ago at the airport. I was working at a really stressful job. One of my aquaintances had mentioned The Happiness Project on Facebook so when I saw it at the airport bookstore I had to have it. I didn't finish it and I probably don't remember much of it, so I'm excited to do it again, starting in January 2014! <BR> <BR> I have a few books and projects to finish up in December but I'll be fresh and ready in January! Mon, 2 Dec 2013 10:51:49 EST welcome! introduce yourself! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x61745x55837532 Hello! <BR> <BR> I read most of the book a couple years ago but I’d like to go through the months along with the book starting in January. I’d love to have some Spark pals to do it at the same time. <BR> <BR> The New Year always makes me optimistic about making changes and having a group will help us keep motivated to work on it throughout the year. Let’s all get the book and be ready to reflect and learn starting in January 2014! Mon, 2 Dec 2013 10:46:31 EST
