i was browsing around the web yesterday when i found out this interesting article "14 Simple Ways to Be Happier and Healthier in 2014". some of the advices are honestly corny but some of them made me think...
'gather your family health history': discover if there are any recurrent disease could be useful (maybe not so happy though!).i think i'll do that and i'll seize the moment to talk also about the past, my grannies, their lives... know where we start is important in order to understand where we are going.
'listening, not hearing, to others': avoiding interruptions and stop finding problems in any story we hear. being interested and happy for others needs practice.
'learn new things': not only for the learning sake but to keep your brain trained.
'eat breakfast': i'm working on it... i'm not a morning person but definitely a lazy one so my breakfasts normally are coffee and cereals. I'm adding new combos ( porridge, budwig cream...) if you need other ideas check here.
'step away from facebook': that was surprising... an american university found out that you feel worse shortly after perusing facebook... what do you think?
'be nice': when you do something for others you feel better too.
the other suggestions include eat healthily, buy local, walk as much as you can, and practice some gym.
