Action to Happiness & Joy

Updated: Jul 7, 2019

ECC Day 3-0-8! “Action to Happiness & Joy”

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” -Dalai Lama

*I recognize these experiences and feelings are a process that ebb & flow throughout our lives; I’ve sure experienced those ebbs and flows. Everyone has their own process of experiencing happiness & joy. A friend shared a list of “22 Things Happy People Do Differently,” and it resonates with me; I’m continually working towards loving life. I also talk with my students about these actions and attitudes.

1)Don’t hold grudges.

2)Treat everyone with kindness.

3)See problems as challenges.

4)Express gratitude for what you already have.

5)Dream big.

6)Don’t sweat the small stuff.

7)Speak well of others.

8)Never make excuses.

9)Get absorbed into the present.

10)Wake up at the same time every morning.

11)Avoid social comparison.

12)Choose friends wisely.

13)Never seek approval from others.

14)Take time to listen.

15)Nurture social relationships.


17)Eat well.


19)Live minimally.

20)Tell the truth.

21)Establish personal control.

22)Accept what cannot be changed, and take action on what you can change.

Keep up the effort, y’all!We’ve got this! 🙌🏼
