Steps To Happiness: Body
Smile, even when you donâ€™t feel like it. Page 2
Your body knows that “Those muscles move into a smile when I’m happy. Those muscles are making a smile. Therefore, I am happy.”
That cheesy song about â€œPut on a happy face,â€? has some truth in it.
Get a good nightâ€™s sleep.
A wise old woman once told this writer that itâ€™s amazing how many emotional/spiritual problems are caused by staying up too late every night.
Every part of you – body, soul and spirit – needs the down time of sleep.
Eat properly. Page 8
A lot of our moods are affected by what we eat. In particular, low blood sugar makes you irritable and miserable.
Keep your blood sugars at a balanced level by eating unprocessed foods and by grazing through the day â€“ on snacks like fruit and nuts, rather than sweets and soft drinks!
Getting moving releases endorphins, which make you feel great. Any sort of exercise will do.
Watch your intake of stimulants such as caffeine. Page 13
If youâ€™re in a stimulated state all the time, you become more nervous and jumpy.
Yes, sometimes, stimulants like coffee in small amounts will pick you up and make you feel happy and energetic, but too much will make you feel on edge and restless all the time, which takes its toll on you physically.
