    Thanks for the great list of 22 ways of happiness.
    But I have a question. What is the 5th way of health “Get your beauty rest” I do not know what is beauty rest.

  2. Jake says:

    Wellm I think the best way how to be happy and healthy is just to be optimistic. I think optimism is most important thing and it is the key to happiness and healthiness.

    I guess am going to fail badly on this list, i fail to avoid stressful situations, always had been. I also found it quite difficult to avoid people that gives me stress, though i agree i tried quite enough, bunked classes, dropped exams, avoided teachers especially when the homework was not done…. oh well, am a happy collage drop out after all.

    On a serious note, i guess i take things too seriously. I can work on #16.

    • Hey Uttoran,

      Sometimes we cannot avoid stressful situations, it is a part of living. But what matters most is how we handle the stressful situation.

      Yes, I use to be one to take things very seriously, now I don’t let too many things bother me. Especially since I have gotten older. I don’t know if age plays a role in this, but I really think it does.

      Take care and enjoy your weekend!
