1. * Exercise more – 7 minutes might be enough

   My walking and runners can do marathons in WDW

2. Sleep more – you’ll be less sensitive to negative emotions

You can really sleep in WDW.

My father never understood this one. Dad said if you worked hard enough you’d sleep

3. Move closer to work – a short commute is worth more than a big house

Make things easier for yourself. Prioritize things that make you happy.

4. Spend time with friends and family – don’t regret it on your deathbed

warm weather makes you happy.  We had a rough winter.  Seasonal Affective Disorder

7. Practice smiling – it can alleviate pain
8. Plan a trip – but don’t take one

9. Meditate – rewire your brain for happiness

10. Practice gratitude – increase both happiness and life satisfaction

Why is Disney World the happiest place? Top reasons

I was listening to our first episode where I sounded a bit awkward talking about what Disney World meant to me.  Sounded much better after we got into our reasons why we love WDW.

2) The music – It’s happy .  Dream theme
3) The Disney Characters
4) You can be a kid again and goof off
5) You can forget your troubles for a while
6) Cast members and other people are happy
7) It makes me happy when others are happy
8) You can have fun with your family
9) You’re on vacation with no work to do
10) If something doesn’t go right, Disney fixes it.
11) Amazing service; your happiness is their priority
12) Electricity in the air
