"How to Be Consistently Happy"

Happiness is that "Good" feeling.

It can be a "Comfortable-good" or an "Excited -good" or a "Chilled-out-good"... it has many flavours and faces- depending on whom you are with, or what you are doing.

The "secret" is to ensure that you give yourself the best chance of staying happy, by stacking the "physiological and psychological" odds in your favour.

1. Give your body and mind what it most needs in order to function in an "optimal" way.

2. "Optimal" in this case means being the healthiest you can be, and the most psychologically balanced you can be.

3. Eat a healthy, balanced diet and ensuring that you get all the vital vitamins and minerals that your body
requires for it's optimal biochemical functioning

4. Find out what vitamins and minerals you may be deficient in by doing a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis- and
possibly blood tests.

5. Supplement your diet with the appropriate Vitamins and Minerals

6. Get Plenty of exercise- an hour a day is good- half an hour the minimum- this will prompt the production of the "feel good" hormones that make you feel happy (endorphins)- plus there are all the other obvious fitness and disease fighting benefits , too numerous to mention here.

7. Minimise Environmental Stressors and Toxins.

8. Minimise Lead and Mercury in your body (avoid having silver fillings... no one tells you this...but they are made from 50% mercury, which, next to Arsenic, is about the most toxic thing you could put in your body - and NO amount is safe for your body)

9. Drink PLENTY of filtered water ( you want to avoid all the excess flouride, chlorine and copper that may be in your tap water)

10. Follow your "inner guidance system".... if the thoughts you are thinking are not giving you a "good feeling".... then think about something else that will make you feel good in that moment.

11. Monitor your thoughts consistently throughout the day and you will stay in a happier and happier place.

12. Sometimes this may not be as easy as you think if you are stuck in a "negative" train of thought and your brain chemicals are getting fired up and forming and "anxiety or anger" pathway.

13. Anxiety, fear and anger patterns can be interrupted by focussing on doing a math problem, counting backwards, counting in odd numbers, doing a sudoku puzzle etc- this will dissapate the rush of chemicals that are making you feel bad...

14. Immediately go back to picturing senes, remembering, imagining, planning stuff that makes you feel GOOD.

15. Get into the habit of ALWAYS recognising the "uncomfortable bad feeling" in your gut, as soon as you start feeling it - and then consciously change your thoughts to something that makes you feel happy. This will make you a person that is more consistently happy.

16. As you practise these mental and lifestyle habits more and more, you will become the person who more consistently is able to be in an optimal physical and mental state and therefor you will simply "be more consistently happy".

Getting all the vital vitamins and minerals that your body requires for it's optimal biochemical functioning may be more and more difficult nowadays, considering that most of our fruit and veggies are grown in nutrient -poor, degraded soils... so go for "organic products" when you can get them- and supplement withthe vitamins and minerals that you know you are deficient in.
