Living option

Excerpted from To Love Is to Be Happy With By Barry Neil Kaufman As we become happier, we become more loving and accepting. This increased comfort results in a greater degree of clarity and ease with which we handle our affairs. Such input is beneficial to all involved. Thus, as a happier person, our self-serving efforts not only pay tribute to ourselves, but to those around us. In our happiness, we move toward what everyone around us wants for

On a Clear Day You Can See Yourself

Excerpted from On a Clear Day You Can See Yourself: Turning the Life You Have Into the Life You Want By Guy Kettelhack This is a book about making choices. Maybe that doesn't sound like a new idea. Certainly a book directed to women about making choices may seem to cover familiar territory. We've heard from feminists for nearly thirty years now that we have the right to choose exactly how to live our lives, to get out from under the feminine yok

Midlife Issues: Health, Work, and Family

Excerpted from The Search for Fulfillment: Revolutionary New Research That Reveals the Secret to Long-term Happiness By Susan Krauss Whitbourne An issue that assumes critical importance in midlife (if not earlier) is that of physical health. In the field of behavioral medicine, a concept that trumps all others in terms of predicting chronic disease, particularly heart disease, is the type A behavior pattern, or "type A personality," as it's often called. People who are

You Are Not Sure What Will Make You Happy? - Ask A Stranger

By Margarita Nahapetyan When you find yourself in a position when it is hard to figure out what will make you happy - do not hesitate just to go and ask a complete stranger. The experience of that person is more likely to help you make up your mind and predict your future reactions, reports a new study by Harvard University. "If you want to know how much you will enjoy an experience, you are better off knowing how much someone else en

Happiness Gene Found By Psychologists

By Margarita Nahapetyan Whether you see a glass half-empty or half-full may depend on your genes, report scientists in Britain. Variations in a mood-altering gene influence whether people take a pessimistic or optimistic view of the world, Elaine Fox and her colleagues at the University of Essex believe. They found that different versions of the gene, which is involved in the transportation of the wellbeing chemical serotonin, affect

Money Can Make People Happy

By Margarita Nahapetyan Psychologists have discovered that people who spend their money on the right things such as going to the theatre, dining out or going on vacation, are more likely to be happier with their life than those who spend their money on material things. The study, conducted by the researchers at San Francisco State University, has found that experiential purchases result in increased happiness and well-being because th

Happiness And Happy People

By Margarita Nahapetyan Different people have different goals that they pursue in their lives, but there is one common universal goal for everyone - the goal to become happy. Some people spend a lot of time and nerves to make money, thinking that money itself will make them happy, or, at least will guard them towards things that will make them happy. Other people long for perfect relationships, perfect bodies, big houses considering a

Looking Into the Future

Excerpted from Perfectly Yourself; 9 Lessons for Enduring Happiness By Matthew Kelly I admire people for so many different reasons. I admire people who take care of themselves physically, because I know how hard it is to do that. Some people make the excuse that it doesn't come naturally to them. I don't think a finely tuned body comes naturally to anyone. When I watch the Olympics and I see the athletes' extraordinary bodies, I know that they are the result of extraord

The Craggy Hole in My Heart and the Cat Who Fixed It

Excerpted from The Craggy Hole in My Heart and the Cat Who Fixed It By Geneen Roth A Zen teacher once said that life is like getting into a boat that is just about to sink. Death: it's the fly in the soup. My mother says she is afraid of dying, not death. Not me: I am afraid of both. I am convinced that when I die, someone, I don't know who, is going to be there with a huge book, and go through my entire life with me, line by line: the times I t

The Pleasure of Being Foolish

Excerpted from Seven Sins for a Life Worth Living By Roger Housden Falling in love is surely the most foolish and irresistible of all the pleasures available to any human being. Most of us fall for it at one time or another. My own story went this way: a fifty-three-year-old man sells his house in England, leaves a good but fading relationship of some thirteen years, says good-bye to his twenty-three-year-old son from an earlier marriage, and boards a plane for the Unit

My Dark Nights of the Soul

Excerpted from Living Light As A Feather: How to Find Joy in Every Day and a Purpose in Every Problem By Ruth Fishel, M.Ed. Sometimes we hear an inner voice that screams so loudly that we must listen to it. It might appear to be an actual voice, a dream or some kind of sign. It might come to us as an inner knowing, the simple knowledge that it is time for change, that it might be time to follow another path. Perhaps we know we must do something now, or we feel directed

Isolation and Pseudo-Intimacy

Excerpted from When Misery Is Company; Ending Self-Sabotage and Misery Addiction By Anne Katherine, M.A., C.M.H.C., C.E.D.T. The little curly-headed child stayed in my mind. I replayed the look on her face when she saw her father. She didn't smile-a natural response in a toddler seeing a loving parent after a separation. She held that toy out, as if she was used to this man taking things from her and she was going to give it up quickly. She wasn't more than three years
