Fru-Gal Column January 27

Just because you are cutting back on spending doesn’t mean you need to cut back on happiness. Recession proof your mood by doing inexpensive acts weekly. When you don’t have money to throw at the parts of your life that aren’t making you happy you may actually find true happiness. According to the latest Nielsen Happiness Survey, women’s happiness is more likely to be recession-proof than men’s because women are more apt to say that friendships and family, not money, make them really happy. Men, put their happiness where their dollars are. Coming right down to it both men and women need a boost of happiness. Spend a couple of minutes a day to remember what your purpose and goals are each day. I like to make a list because when I accomplish my list, it is satisfying. Don’t forget to put good stuff on your list, if you are a reader put read at least 30 minutes a day. You can help boost your mood by doing at least thirty minutes a day of physical activity. Resist the urge to stop a daily physical activity. Just taking a daily peaceful walk will help your well-being. Put this on your list. If you are not accomplishing your list relook at your day to figure out what you were actually spending your time on. In tough times, happiness isn’t an extra. It’s an essential way to build resilience and good health.
