Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. - Buddha
Action for Happiness is a movement that wants to help people to profoundly change the way they live their lives; here are their ten keys to happier living.
The first five relate to how we interact with the outside world in our daily activities:
Giving: Do things for others
Relating: Connect with others
Exercising: Take care of your body
Appreciating: Notice the world around you
Trying out: Keep learning new things
The second five come more from inside us and depend on our attitude to life:
Direction: Have goals to look forward to
Resilience: Find ways to bounce back
Emotion: Take a positive approach
Acceptance: Be comfortable with who you are
Meaning: Be part of something bigger.
