Change your brain structure

SPEAKZEASY

Only humans can enjoy and feel satisfied by fasting or giving up food.  You can change the circuitry of the brain by constantly, repeatedly doing something like exercising.  You can also cause your genes to evolve by regular meditation.
Wiring-the-Brain-for-HappinessNeuro-psychologist Rick Hanson says, ” The brain is like VELCRO for bad experiences but TEFLON for good ones.”  Negative feelings and experiences are encoded much faster than good ones.  That is why psychology, religion and even folk wisdom encourages you to think of good, positive thoughts and happy outcomes.  Studies show that if you walk like a happy person, you become happier, by turning on your brain’s reward and pleasure spots.  While listening to your favourite music, the brain releases dopamine, the pleasure chemical as the music triggers happy memories.
You can actually grow thicker grey matter and brain tissue as you meditate regularly for 40mins daily. It is one of…

Happy thoughts

I thinkHAPPY; therefore I am!

said René Dog-carts. Check him out running above. What a happy puppy!

He’s overjoyed to be alive.

Rinse your mind with merry!

What if adjusted our comprehension, cleansed and deodorised our mind’s filters with a rinse of happy? We can still utilise the lessons necessary for staying alive, but boost them with a dose of thrive, instead of just survive.

I am the boss of me!

We may not have complete control over our circumstances. Sometimes it feels like we can’t even find the vehicle let alone the steering wheel, gears, or brakes. And whose giant foot is that weighing down the accelerator pedal like a boulder avalanche inside a Looney Tunes cartoon?

YOU are the vehicle. You’re the master of your feelings. 

You are a champion, a Firework

words cannot embody what you’re worth

Sending lots of smiles to you! 🙂

I believe in you

LOVE HAPPY NOTES - The Home of Inspiration, Happiness and Fun

I am so proud of you, for the good you have done and the difficulties you have overcome. I am amazed at your endurance and the grace with which you have lived your life. I am so glad you are here. You were born for greatness, and every day I see it in you.

When you do what you love your greatness thrives. Each time you help someone, your greatness grows. It is alive in the love you feel and show others. And so by doing you honour yourself. You don’t need notoriety, your reward is to know who you are.

A life lived with kindness, integrity, passion and purpose epitomises truly living. A life lived from the heart, from a place of love, is a life of meaning. I wish for you; a wonderful life. Thank you for visiting with me, if even for a moment.

Fly Me to the moon

LOVE HAPPY NOTES - The Home of Inspiration, Happiness and Fun

the most amazing show on Earth, amazing, wonderful, science, lunar,

Last night I took a photo of the Moon. (above) As I marvelled at her landscape, I thought of the one inside my mind.

The Moon’s beams are not her own but those reflected from the sun. Have we become the moon and forgotten there is the sun. Have we relinquished the light that exists inside us, to rely on the cast of others? Are our ideas our own, or like the rays from the Moon, an illusion from an foggy, bumpy mirror?

The amount of light from the Moon depends on the point of its orbit; just like us and our point of view. Depending on the angle reflected from, things may seem darker than they are.

When the moon is at is closest it becomes a Supermoon, Twenty percent brighter and clearer, but most of all; full. It is wonderful to be that close to another, that they brighten your life this way! But we are…

Simple Pleasures + 100 Happy Days = Making lists

I posted this on my blog, and want to share on the Covey View as well. I hope you enjoy the thought processes, and maybe even start the processes yourself if it’s not something you already do.

the moments matter

A recent blogging “assignment” I had was to write my blog as a list. That was something different; self brainstorming, no grammar worries, a different kind of writing. Not bloggish as we think of a blog, but a list. As I wrote on May 22nd, I also recently signed up to do the 100 Days of Happy, where I take a photo of something that made me happy during my day. Every day, for 100 days! That’s a lotta happy. A fellow blogger wrote a post about 50 simple pleasures in her life. http://lyrallya.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/50-simple-pleasures-of-life/#more-3401 All of a sudden, I’m seeing a theme going on in my world.

It seems like people are trying to find the good stuff, the stuff that makes us happy, the positive influences, figuring out what’s real and important to us individually as well as universally. This is really incredible! Those moments that matter so much…
