Work as hard at being happy as you do being healthy.
52% of the population under 40 says anxiety is killing them.
But we go to the gym, take a walk, run, exercise to build our bodies while we often neglect our minds.
Most of us do not dedicate the same time we put aside for healthy activities to spend on personal happiness. If we did it would be transformative.
The goal of working out is often cardio.
The goal of training happiness is to find ways to be grateful for what we have and who we have.
That includes ourselves.
When was the last time you said, “I am grateful for being me” and count your blessings? Grateful for others? Grateful for the life you are having?
Spend the same amount of time on gratitude as you do health and you will gain two benefits.
