Whether it is laughing, taking time to smell the roses, or dancing, follow this road to happiness.

Step 1: Keep a positive perspective
Keep a positive outlook. Focus on all of the wonderful things in your life such as family, friends, and your accomplishments.

Do not base your happiness on how much money you make. Wealth does not bring happiness. Mo' money, mo' problems.

Step 2: Write what you are grateful for
Write down on paper the things that you are thankful for every day.

Step 3: Make goals
Make realistic goals for yourself and celebrate your progress.

Step 4: Engage in activities
Engage in activities that demand physical and mental activity.

Step 5: Develop relationships
Invest your time and energy in your family and friends to develop and keep meaningful relationships.

Step 6: Live in the moment
Live in the moment and enjoy experiences as they happen. Embrace what you are doing and with whom you are doing it.

Step 7: Volunteer
Volunteer and help others in need. It is beneficial to all parties involved.

Step 8: Think small
Think small. Instead of worrying about things in the big picture that you can't control, think about little things that make you smile, such as a song or movie you like or a friendship that's important to you.

Did You Know?
Volunteering helps build self-esteem and confidence while helping strengthen communities and improving lives.
