25 Ways To Put The "Happy" in Happy New Year

"HAPPY NEW YEAR!!" As the "En-lighten-up-ment" Organizer Coach, I am resolving to make 2008 the happiest year ever. I plan to continue incorporating all of my practices into my life and becoming even more comfortable with them. It takes twenty one days to establish a new behavior. Once the new pattern is in place it becomes natural and effortless.
These are my top twenty-five suggestions to put the "happy" in 2008:
  1. Keep a gratitude list or journal
  2. Change yourself first
  3. Set an intention each morning for how you want to be
  4. Be generous and courteous in traffic
  5. Let go of "having to know" and remain open and curious
  6. End each day prepared for the next day
  7. Respect the different organizing personalities of those around you
  8. Let go of anything—physical or mental—that makes you feel heavy
  9. Laugh at your worries!
  10. Say "no"
  11. Volunteer your time and talent to a worthy cause
  12. Face your fears!
  13. Use prayer and meditation for spiritual balance
  14. Take care of your body—exercise and keep it alkaline with the right food
  15. Drink alcohol in moderation—alcohol is a depressant
  16. Ask for help—get support
  17. Complete the incomplete
  18. Practice self-acceptance
  19. Let go of resentments
  20. Practice forgiveness
  21. Hang out with fun, energizing, like-minded people
  22. Reduce or eliminate watching TV—especially news programs
  23. Take a risk and learn something new and fun
  24. Keep a victory log
  25. Look for the good in everything
I'll bring closer focus to these practices over the coming weeks. They are all equal in value. Practice all of them or some of them.  At any rate, make 2008 the happiest year ever by setting your intentions now!
