1. Have a good core group of friends. 2. Build some adventure into your life. Don’t fall into “the same old, same old”. 3. Research confirms that “stuff won’t make us happy” so clear out the junk – and only keep what you love. 4. Work on establishing balance in your life. Don’t be too busy or you’ll wind up depressed. 5. Give in to temptation every now and again. Too much discipline is boring in the end. 6. Like and appreciate yourself. Take time to notice and affirm your strengths. 7. Start living in the moment – don’t doubt every move. Accept your decision as the best one right now.
