Weigh This Instead!

Life After Emotional & Binge Eating

Is There a Formula for Happiness?

Emma Shuman, Age 6

My dog Emma’s silliness, hanging out with my BFF, when a client has a break through, walking around my clean house right after my cleaning people leave…these things make me happy.

What makes you happy? If you’re happy, that’s wonderful! Good for you! You deserve it!

If you’re not happy, why is that? What are you doing differently from people who are happy?  What are you waiting for? You deserve to be happy, too. I know that, without question!

I just opened my Oprah Newsletter and read an article all about Happiness. I’m happy I read it. So happy, I want to share it. Read the whole article here, 5 Things Happy People Do.  If this link does not work, go to Oprah.com and in the Search Box type in, 5 Things Happy People Do. (Btw, technical glitches mess with my happiness 🙂 )

Create a HAPPY DAY!

  1. Playing and snuggling between my 2 mutt terriers (aka “puppy sandwich”) makes me incredibly happy = )

  2. Good article – some positive reminders. I especially liked the reminder to be with your best friends – not spreading your self thin with all kinds of acquaintances and activities. On the other hand the one about trying something new was good too.

    Just love Emma’s eyes – so engaging!

  3. LOL…snuggling with Emma makes me happy, immediately. She is SOOOOOO in the moment!
    Emma is engagaing all right! If she could be permanently attached to me, at the hip, she would go for it…:-)
