be-happyHow we teach our children to be happy!

Learning to be happy takes practice… just like soccer or anything else your child wants to do. We have our kids practice many things: how to tie their shoes, learn a new language or play a violin. I came across this in a book I am reading by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, and I thought I’d share. It’s about how to learn the “habit” of happiness. As we move throughout our day, we should teach our children to consciously choose to:

  1. Be as cheerful as possible
  2. Feel and act a little friendlier toward other people
  3. Be less critical and more tolerant of others and ourselves
  4. Smile at least three times during the day
  5. React as calmly and as intelligently as possible regardless of what happens.

There are more listed by Dr. Maltz… but this will get you started.
Happy Day!
