How to Stay Young and Happy Always

Updated on September 18, 2012

Amazing! Don't we all want to be young and happy always?

Oh well, I do believe that age is just a number and young is in the attitude.

Here's a little reminder of how we can stay young and happy always. These are actually simple stuff that we sometimes ignore or take for granted.

1. Throw out non-essential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height. Like I said, age is just a number. So who's counting? LOL! But I do admit that you have to watch your weight, as being obese or overweight won't help with your overall wellness. But I guess, through the years, I've learned to ignore the slight weight gain I've developed. I'm no longer obsessed on looking like model-thin.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. Well, over the years, I've chosen to stay away from people with not-so-good vibes. I guess that's one reason I decided to work freelance -- to keep away from office gossip and politics. To me, happiness is a state of mind. So why would I want to be affected by drama queens? I stay away instead!

3. Keep learning. We're never too old to learn anything. I've realized too that it's quite possible to learn when you set your heart and mind on it. Besides, learning is a lifelong process. You actually begin to learn more once you've graduated from school!

4. Enjoy the simple things. I'm pretty sure that you have somehow made a list of life's little pleasures. I know I have. I have even written a blog post about my life's little pleasures. And you know what made it to the list? Having "me" time during my busy day with my cup of coffee. Ahh, life! It sure won't be the same without it.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. Wow I sure can count the number of times I still do that. But my life is not totally without laughter. It's no wonder comedy movies make a lot of money. People need something to laugh about. What I like is, we do have some family bonding times wherein we laugh quite more loudly than usual. I guess that's counted.

Well, this is just my partial list. I'm sure there are lots more ways of staying young and happy always. Have you made your list?

      Great Hub!

      Somewhere, I read to be like fruit on the tree, absobing nourishment from everything around you, and you'll live forever. Get plucked and rot in the fruit bin!

      Loved It!!

      It's a great list. Positive thinking, keeping busy, always learning new things, having good friends and like-minded people around helps a lot in one's enjoyment of life.

      I've learned to “amp-up” my own happiness? The first step is to ….. SLOW DOWN. As I race from one activity to the next: coffee, fitness, kids, work, homework, meals, kids, sleep; I have to actively remind myself to stop. Pause. Take time to enjoy the process. i.e. gulping coffee to administer a high enough level of caffeine to accomplish the fore-mentioned, is NOT the same thing as savoring a delicious cup of home-brewed Starbucks Italian Roast by our fish pond sitting comfortably in an Adirondack Chair, petting our poodle Delilah, watching my Koi and Calico Goldfish eagerly consume the fish food I’ve just fed them. The difference in time between the former and the latter is approximately 3 minutes. I make time for that, because i find joy in that. Excellent hub - I enjoyed it thoroughly!
