Top up your happiness: things to do today
Shift your perception. At the end of today, write down four things that went well. This enables you to develop a positive attitude. It will relieve your stress and give you a more thankful outlook in life. Therapists who let depressed patients focus on the positives in life have noted more success than those who ask patients to return to the bad things that happened to them. Let this be your daily exercise, and you will find your optimism seeping into your life once more.

Top up your happiness by showing your gratitude
Strengthen your relationships. Show people who're kind to you that you appreciate them. Today, write a short note, send an email, call up a friend (or any other way you choose to communicate) and say thank you for something they've done for you in the past. Think of one person, one act of kindness, then out of the blue say, 'thank you'. They took the time, of their own free will, to be a blessing to you. Make their day and yours.
People who're grateful not only get more in return, but they build up solid friendships and relationships because they're not too proud to say thank you. Showing gratitude is also giving back something - albeit small. Giving, not taking, is the path to true happiness.

Top up your happiness by showing love
Don't ever allow the hardships of life to quench your ability to love. Love may be the most important thing on earth. If you can't love you've died already. Life is only worth living if you've got someone you're prepared to die for. Love, love, love. And show your loved ones you love them. They'll love you back. Keep this precious gem (of thought and feeling) in your heart. Let this bring you happiness today. God loves us all. Why should we be sad.
