Eight Characteristics of Happy People and How to Become One

So tonight we start with 8 characteristics of happy people as presented by The Happiness Institute.  Characteristics are great, but how do you get to have these characteristics, so I’m linking you back to some posts on the Ministry of Happiness where we’ve discussed these.  Enjoy, and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane

Like themselves – no one is perfect (Happiness and being perfect) and (Happiness and acceptance)  

Believe they’re in control of their lives – being in control means you can take a Happiness Day when you want or need one.  

Are more optimistic – step one stop being so cynical (Happiness and Cynicism

Tend to more socially outgoing – one way to interact more with the world and be more special is to travel, Happiness & Travel

Have more and better quality relationships – this starts with first selecting who will be in your life (Happiness and Selected Families)  

Believe in something greater/bigger than themselves – for me this is my selected family and friends here’s a little taste of why, a story about the Dude.  

Feel that their lives are in balance – How to bring your life into balance 

Are more curious and creative – Happiness and being child-like
