It’s not humanly possible to be happy every minute - is it? After all, from birth we are presented with both pleasure and pain. But we can probably be happier more of the time than we are. Maybe happiness is an art that can be learned through practice, kind of like playing the piano. Lately, I have been trying to keep reminding myself throughout the day to be happy. I guess, it’s sort of like the tried and true recipe of counting your blessings. Only not exactly, because I am trying to be happy in the moment and within myself, not thinking about external blessings. Happiness does, however, seem to involve a certain physical component. Your heart is happier when your body is comfortable and unstressed, which brings up the expansive subject of health and wellness: eating healthily, sleeping well, exercising, meditating, doctoring and medicating. Keeping your heart and your body happy could be a full time job.
