3 Secrets to Happiness

This will be a very short post.
I just wanted to share some wisdom with the rest of the world, specifically those who are looking for ways to sustain or find happiness.
It might or might not work for you but there is no harm in trying. And I promise you'll be happy you tried.

So here they are:

1) Find sport that helps you release your tension. It could be any kind of physical activity as long as you feel a great sense of relief when doing it and more importantly after you're finished. For me, it's running. Not only it releases my tension, it provides clarity to my mind, soothes my emotions, it keeps me fit, strong and flexible.

2) Have intimacy. If you're in a relationship, have regular sex with your partner. But make it romantic and playful. It has to feel like fun and excitement even if it's a quicky before work. If you're single, see if you can find a lover who you trust and have a great respect for. The feeling must be mutual so that you both can relax and enjoy the game. If having a lover is not an option, try to get touched in other ways: getting a massage (even a hand massage at a nail salon once a week) on a regular basis, hugging your friends, family, and pets. Also having trusting and intimate conversations with your closest friends.

3) Take care of yourself. Looking good makes you feel good. Taking care of your body from inside out, wearing clothes that look good on you, make you feel sexy yet elegant and tasteful. Eating foods that make you happy. Many things you do that make you feel like you're ready any minute to meet with Mike Bloomberg to discuss important NYC projects. Basically, when you know you feel and look good, you have confidence and happiness within.

Those are 3 basic things that will not only help you bring more happiness but will help sustain it. Once you cover all three, you'll see less need to find happiness from someone else. In the end, the true happiness is the one we give ourselves.
