As a sufferer of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder a few years ago (since recovered!), I was not a happy person. I tried everything to keep myself positive. I tried surrounding myself with positive quotes and sayings, I looked for affirmation from friends and social media, but nothing worked. Understandably, because that kind of encouragement was empty and not fulfilling (but that’s a topic for another day). What I really needed was a couple of realistic goals that would help me to keep going daily.
If you are going through something, whether you have severe depression or mild symptoms like I had, you’ll know how hard it is to just “cheer up” or “be happy”.
Joel did some research for me (out of desperation to hear me stop my whining about how negative I was, I think) and compiled this encouraging little list of happiness tips which had lived ever since in the front pocket of my Filofax. Today, I’d like to share them with you.
