It is not hard to be happy

Force your face into a smile

and eat two pounds of wild fish a week

Simplify, and don't consume wheat

or corn products

In the winter, 2500 lux of light

and, mostly, don't worry

Drink coffee

Remember that life is funny

It is also a gift.

Life is a funny gift

Do not internalize headlines

or dwell on bad news

or expect too much of yourself

But be sure to take action

to serve others

and leave the world a better place

You'll feel good

Work hard

(idleness creates a dull mind)

and find plenty of time for yourself

Nurture social connections

Get a pet

A goldfish is better than nothing

Don't stretch yourself too thin

Replenish

Peanut butter is toxic

Go with the flow

and take charge of your life

Make a budget.

Treat yourself

Happiness is for you

It is your birthright
