Recipes for a Happy Life

Happy Meal

For Happiness

Happy: feeling pleasure or contentment.

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance,
the wise grows it under his feet. i


The simpler your activities,
the happier you'll be. ii

A UK survey in 2015 that asked 2,000 people about their favourite
feel-good moment came up with the following results:

*   sleeping in a freshly made bed
*   laughing so hard it hurts
*   snuggling on the sofa
*   having a long hot bath
*   making a perfect cake/pie


You can't be very happy all the time
you can be a little happy most of the time. ii

Success is getting what you want;
happiness is wanting what you get. iii


Happiness doesn't just happen -
we have to make it happen. iv
