Be Grateful Live Longer and Be Happier

I’m lucky because I generally wake up happy.  I am also a grateful person.  Sure bad stuff happens and life is not fair.  If I get in a bad mood or depressed, the best cure I’ve found is to get endorphins by going for a walk.  Another trick I’ve found that works is to get in the moment.  I mean the exact moment without a single thought about the past or future not even a minute back or forward.  Get into the exact moment, what does it smell like, what do you see, what do you hear and if you’re walking the dogs then you’re walking the dogs and not thinking about what you did yesterday or what you will do when you get back home.  Just get in the moment and enjoy the enjoyment your dog is having, checking out the scenery, the weather, the surroundings, the sounds and be “in the exact moment”.

Being grateful is a very powerful emotion. According to two of the most prominent gratitude researchers, UC Davis’ Robert Emmons and University of Miami’s Michael McCullough Being grateful and keeping a gratitude journal generally leads to more happiness including sleeping longer, feeling more refreshed in the morning, get more exercise and have less aches and pains.  When I took a class on being successful, the teacher, Rich Schefren a famous business trainer, taught us to write down 10 things we are grateful for every morning and five things we will accomplish that day.  Rich stated that by starting off the day with gratitude, it set up the day to be more productive and attract success to ourselves.  I use 3″x5″ index cards writing the ten things I am grateful for on the front and the five things I will accomplish that day on the back.  It really works.





Is Bigger Really Better for Smart Phones?

bigger-and-bigger-and-bigger-then-smaller-and-smallerI predict the mobile revolution will obsolete smart phones sooner rather than later. iPhone 6 plus in my opinion is the end of big phones and from here they get smaller and smaller until they are obsolete.

Today I asked a question about a new pair of wingtips I have. I asked if I could wear them with a dark grey suit because they have tan leather soles. The answers started coming in immediately. Most of the answers were well thought out and one was pretty funny.
