Hello Loyal Readers!
Hopefully, you are intrigued by the title of this article – Tips to Be Happy Even in This Pandemic. I’ve been asked to address this important topic in my virtual training. I see clients being frustrated by all the changes, new rules, and fear. Why in the world am I writing about Tips to be Happy during these stressful times. For one reason and one reason only: Humor is an important survival skill. You will find a link to the article HERE: Tips on the Importance of Laughing even During Tough Times.
Mrs. Fred Rogers, wife of the TV personality was interviewed on how Mr. Rogers always stays so positive. Guess her answer. Come on. You are so close. 🙂 Her response was, “My husband was a good man. He constantly works on it.”
I do what I can to spin stress into positive energy. I’m realistic. I’m also a human being who is just as worried about the virus as the next person. I do my best to look at opportunities even during tough times. Both of my parents shared this quality and lucky for me, it’s in my DNA. Lucky for you, I share this tenacity with clients! It’s hard work and worth the effort. The two tips that you will find below are taken from my booklet, 19 Surefire Ways to Bring More Joy and Harmony Into Your Life. We are creating a new site that will host 52 positive quotes with action activities and you will be the first to hear when it is ready for your eyes.

“The number one premise of business is that it need not be boring or dull. It ought to be fun. If it is not fun, you’re wasting your time.”
