We are surrounded by messages every day about what we need to do to be happy... and they often require a fleeting purchase or eating something with empty calories. But even when we do these things, we may feel emptier than before.
The good news is that happiness is within you all the time! Connecting with it is the trick.
Here are eight of my favorite free and easy things to do for a happiness boost:
Start the day with a smile at yourself
Walk with awareness in Nature
Sing--it will get you breathing and smiling
Practice gratitude, say thanks for something overlooked
Spend time with family and friends
Go outside and breathe fresh air
Give yourself a foot massage
