Some Practical Tips

I was reading the other day an article from the Psychological Society of Ireland who are celebrating their 40th anniversary. It offers some 40 tips on how to be more content in life. Some of the basics (the article elaborates on each) include:

Look after your basic needs first: Eat and sleep.logo
Listen to your body and use your breathing.
Happiness does not require money.
Laugh and remember laughs.
Try to find something to be grateful for.
Get active.
Drink alcohol responsibly and in moderation.
Engage in meaningful, creative activities.
Do what you love/like.
See fun as a priority not an indulgence.
Lose yourself, sense of time, etc.
Don't let a little anxiety stand in your way.
Set yourself realistic goals.
Avoid conversations about weight and appearance.

The article continues with advice on one's Daily Routine (Home. School, Work), Children, Tough Times, etc.
