Doc Feelgood Gives You a Prescription for Happiness

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Happy PillsOk, this post is a simple one. People want to know "at least" one thing they can do to be happy. What is that? I am not talking pleasure or joy here but just something simple like being happy.


You will feel much better by the end of this week if you follow my advice. Here it is:

Notice what makes you happy and do more of it.

If it's gardening do more of it. Playing with the grandkids, more of it. Golf. More. Laugh. More. Eat out with girlfriend. More.

For me I can think of at least a hundred things but I like being with and laughing with family and friends, physical activities like running, swimming, and basketball and listening to upbeat music to name a few. Oh, and quiet mornings with a cup of coffee or quiet evenings with a glass of wine.

How about you? Is it dance? Your cat? Your pool? Your secret lover? <Smile, just kidding>

Tell me what ONE thing you know that makes you happy, that you will do MORE of this week? I guarantee by week's end you will have more happiness in your life.

Trey: A new agent succeeding makes all of us feel good. That is a great thought.

Debbie: That is a very cool idea with the notebook going back and forth. How novel.

Gita: Just one will do for a start. Try 100 if you like, the more the merrier.

Judy: Writing and making people feel good I enjoy. You are very perceptive.

Kris: I try to get people to think about their heart. So true.

Exercise at Gold's Gym makes me feel good and, therefore, happy.  I'm just going back this week after a 4 week hiatus for shoulder surgery,  Karen

Gary:  As you already know, I'm finding that swimming is making me happy this summer.  That or gardening.  I love making my yard look nice.  It's hard work, but pays dividends when pulling into your driveway can put a smile on your face.

Well, there are tons of things that make me happy.  But, I decided that if I give my Little Peppy, my parti-poodle, even the slightest bit of attention it is like getting a happy shot.....his enthusiasum and playfulness is immediately contagious.

Dr, I think as I get older I get happier.  Less stress and more experience to rely on.  I do take time to make sure I am doing things I like more, which is your point.

You Deserve The Best

Ok, I will say the obvious- getting a call from a title company telling me we just funded.  I sure could use a lot more of that!  Handing the keys over to a first time home buyer is high on the list as well.  I really enjoy coffee on my patio with a newspaper and watching my dogs play in the wee hours of the morning.  The other thing that comes to mind immediately is cooking.  There is nothing that makes me happier than spending time in the kitchen.  Spending time with my children is another thing I cannot get enough of.  And of course spending time on AR.

Thanks for the post.  It got me thinking.  I am going to make a list (yes, lists make me happy).

BTW- Tell William I am free for lunch on Wednesday.

Many things mamke me happy - first and foremost my family. I love spending time with my daughters and lauging, & telling stories. Being successful makes me happy.
