The 10 Steps to Happiness

15th November sees the start of a four-part documentary on BBC 2 following an experiment designed to increase the happiness level of 50 volunteers from Slough, based on this 10-point plan:
  1. Plant something and nurture it
  2. Count your blessings at the end of each day
  3. Take time to talk - have an hour-long conversation with a loved one each week
  4. Phone a friend you have not spoken to for a while and arrange to meet up
  5. Give yourself a treat every day and take the time to really enjoy it
  6. Have a good laugh at least once a day
  7. Get physical - exercise for half an hour three times a week
  8. Smile at and/or say hello to a stranger at least once each day
  9. Cut your TV viewing by half
  10. Spread some kindness - do a good turn for someone every day

ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ।

ਓਹ ਭਾਜੀ, ਬਹੁਤ ਵਧੀਆ ਨੇ। ਸੱਚੀ ਸਹੀ ਸਲਾਹ ਹੈ। ਧੰਨਵਾਦ ਜੀ।

ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ।
