Every individual is charged with finding his own path to happiness. How often do you listen to that still, small voice inside you? When you are stressed, a little unhappy, and feeling as though you are running on a hamster wheel, just stop a moment. When you begin to realize that you may be suffering from information overload, stop for a moment and look inward. Meditation is a practice that allows one to quiet the mind, focus on rhythmic breathing, and being still. Sometimes all one needs to get a grip on reality is a little quiet. For a few minutes several times per day, relax and fully engage your mind/body/spirit with a period of silent reflection. Learn to sit still, breathe deeply, relax every muscle, and empty the mind. Fill your heart with love and gratitude. Immerse yourself in the process of living, and be thankful for that gift. With daily gratitude, self satisfaction and happiness are certain to follow.

Our fast-paced world serves up thousands of distractions, perceived threats, bombardment from ‘news’ and ‘social media’. This information age that has made us input junkies, and we feel more alone and unhappy with ourselves and wonder why. Happiness does not come from a pill bottle. There is nothing you can take to make yourself happy until you change your mind and BE Happy.
Happiness is a skill that can be learned. Happy people change the world around them in many ways. A positive, happy attitude is infectious, and it all begins with a CHOICE. Happiness makes your brain think differently. Once a person chooses happiness, he feels good. Happiness brings a lightness of being, a sense of subtle connectedness with the world and all that is in it. Happy people have better health, tend to live longer, and expect good outcomes, even in adversity. Happy people change the way they approach ‘challenges’ – problem solving tends to lead to more creative solutions, perhaps because we are creating more beneficial chemistry and hormones.
Happy people are not violent, are more likely to be of service to others, and share what they have with others. If you believe you can benefit from a positive group of people that promote happiness in their own lives and wish to share it with others, come meet us: We are The Hartford Happiness Club, and you are welcome.
