The ABC of Genuine Happiness

S – Smile. Sleep. Simplicity

Oh I love smiling….

and could talk all day about it but here some of my favourites smile quotes:

Smile – It’s the second best you can do with your lips.

Smiling is my favourite exercise.

A smile is something you can’t give away; it always comes back to you.

It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body… the heart.

A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.  Charles Gordy

Everyone smiles in the same language.

People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile.  Lee Mildon

Wear a smile – one size fits all.

You’re never fully dressed without a smile.  Martin Charnin

A smile can brighten the darkest day.

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Mother Teresa

Simplicity

simple

“Life gets better when you SIMPLIFY !!!!!!! Remove the clutter, excess, unnecessary and everything that does not serve you well; and you will feel better. Things were meant to serve us, but these days it seems more that we serve things.

How about de-cluttering your mind?

Get rid of negative, unpleasant thoughts; make room for positive, cheerful thoughts.

Get rid of unwanted memories; make room for new memories.

Get rid of destructive, angry thoughts; make room for loving, happy thoughts.

It’ll feel as good within yourself as tidying your closet.

Wishing you  a surprising and super day!

I have had busy weeks and even in my  holiday I have been busy so I haven’t been reading blogs as much lately.

I had my God – Daughter staying with me and I showed her around London.  We had a great time together and so much fun, saw many places, went to the Theatre, visited Mme Tussauds, shopped in Harrods (not really)  and walked miles to see the typical London sites.  She liked it very much and wants to come again, I am very happy!

 In Madame Tussauds I met some great people:

I had breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn

Looking after Body and Mind

Standard

To keep your body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.

Because I felt so stressed recently I booked myself a SPA weekend in a hotel about an hour away from my home.

It was a package and started with a revitalising massage on Saturday. It was beautiful and so relaxing with sweet smelling oils and soothing music, I loved it!  Then I could use the facilities like the swimming pool, the steam room, Sauna and the gym. There were heated tiled lounging chairs to relax on.  I had some meditation sessions in between for relaxing the mind too.

The hotel was beautiful, the staff was amazing, the food was super (included was lunch and dinner and the next morning’s breakfast) and I enjoyed this weekend thoroughly. It was total bliss!

Sometimes we need to treat ourselves and forget about everything.

Let go off all worries,

stresses and plans and

just be, enjoy and relax.

I wish you all a great start to the week

and I hope you feel energised and refreshed!

R – Read. Relax. Reinvent yourself.

“Let us read and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” Voltaire

I love reading and could get lost in bookshops.

Relax

Everyone relaxes in a different way.

My favourite is the hammock between the palm trees…. which one is yours?

Reinvent yourself

It is never too late to start again, reinvent yourself, change, take risks, get out of the comfort zone, be a new you, follow your dreams, do what makes you happy.

You are in control of your life and happiness.

Be irresistible,

be amazing

be you!
