10 Small Ways to Make This The Happiest Summer of Your Life

“Then followed that beautiful season… Summer… Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Summer is here in full bloom after what was, at least up here in Sweden, a long and cold winter.

So this week I’d like to share 7 small and simple tips that you can use to create a happier summer – and rest of the year – for yourself.

How to Start Spreading the Optimism: 7 Simple Tips

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

Improve Your Mood Now

I often write about how a good start to your day often leads to having a good day in general.

Or you might have lost that positive momentum during a hard first part of the day and after lunch you feel tired, low or lost in a somewhat sad or uninspired funk.

What to do then? Is that day lost and should you just aim for a better day tomorrow?

Well, today is not over yet.

Sydney J. Harris

The summer is here.

And for many of us it’s a time of vacations, a time of being free from school or a slow time at work or in your business.

So it’s a good time to focus on taking extra good care of yourself to unwind, decompress and to recharge.

And that’s exactly what this week’s article is all about.
