April 2016 Theme: Achieving Happiness

 
• Many people feel they need something (more money, better clothes, a relationship) to be happy. Wanting more is fine, but stop chasing and learn to relax and enjoy life in the present.
 
• Learn to enjoy every experience and every moment.
 
• Stop blaming others or circumstances for your problems, and ask what you can do to make it better.
 
• Take action.
 
• Be aware of unreasonable expectations. The difference between what we feel entitled to and what we actually get, is the source of much misery.
 
• Practice positive thinking and gratitude.
