It's October!

There is something so promising about a brand new month. The budget is made, the meals are planned, and it's a fresh start to try something new. For those of you who have been following for awhile, you know that a new month means another month of the Happiness Project. For those of you who are new, which many are, I will get you up to date on the journey I've been on!

Six months ago I read a self-help memoir by Gretchen Rubin called "The Happiness Project." She took a year of her life to implement simple tasks that would make her much happier. I created my own Happiness Project and have been documenting it here. I am halfway through. So far I have focused on my energy, relationship, family, friendships, and finances. In September I focused on being more mindful. I spent more time in meditation, I exercised more, and tried to live in the moment. I tried hypnosis, (helps me sleep!) laughter yoga (so bizarre!) and became more mindful of what is going into my body-which has helped me decided to set foot on a sugar free October!

This month my quest for happiness revolves around my attitude. I have four simple goals: laugh more, have good manners, give positive feedback, and find an area of refuge. Wish me luck!

"No one is happy who doesn't think himself happy."
