Don’t worry…be H.A.P.P.Y!
The H.A.P.P.Y. Paradigm
Home (we all need a home base we feel safe and we can unwind)
Attitude (how you see the world and how you think the world sees you)
Philosophy (a guiding set of principles to live by, a faith, a religion, morals & ethics,)
Proactivity (finding what you love to do, and can contribute to the world and then doing it!)
You matter (regardless of what you think, there is a place for you)
The H.A.P.P.Y. Summary
These are the things that make the biggest difference in strengthening body, mind and soul for the hard times. The hard times come and go like the weather. The more strong and robust we can be during these times, the more we move ahead when the sun is out. Your emotions and stress influence your gut, your diet, your lifestyle, your environment and those you choose to spend time around.
They are not separate, they are all connected.

Whenever I am feeling down or unsure of my life or the choices I have made, I read my favourite quote of all time by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I assess how I am doing and it brings me peace. I have read it at funerals to acknowledge people who I feel have made a difference to the world with their lives.
“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; This is to have succeeded”
