    The Art of Play: Gateway to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index!  Our discussion today is to explore the role of “play” in creating happiness in our life.  The truth is that play seems to be one of the most advanced methods nature has invented to allow a complex brain to create itself. ? Stuart Brown, author of PLAY: HOW IT SHAPES THE BRAIN, OPENS THE IMAGINATION, AND INVIGORATES THE SOUL. Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul.  Of all animal species, humans are the biggest players of all. We are built to play and built through play. When we play, we are engaged in the purest expression of our humanity, the truest expression of our individuality. Is it any wonder that often the times we feel most alive, those that make up our best memories, are moments of play? Write Stuart Brown.

    Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  Today we will continue to explore with you the concept of Hope & Service as a path to happiness.  Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Service is a valuable action, deed, or effort performed to satisfy a need or to fulfill a demand.  When we have hope and we are in service.  We are in a positive state of mine that the action or deed that we are performing for another will have a positive outcome. We believe that what we are doing will make a difference and as a result we are happy. Joseph Addison said, Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.  Join the conversation and share your wisdom on Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness by calling (347) 539-5818.

    Hope & Service: Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Thank you for listening to Happiness Index and we are continuing our conversation on hope and service.   Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Rebubic said, Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism.  It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. We are convinced that everyone who gives of their time to serve others are deeply rooted in hope.  Hope is an optimistic state of confidence and an anticipation that service is hope.  It encourages to believe that your giving of yourself will make a difference.  Hope is a cornerstone of volunteerism. Our focus today will be on the value of hope to inspire us to serve and how hope and service is a path to happiness.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.

    Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Thank you for listening to Happiness Index and we are continuing our conversation on service.  Today we deepen the conversation with the theme Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness."  Our current President, Barack Obama said, “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” Today is Easter Sunday. It is a time of forgiveness, a time for us to look upon each other with different eyes, a time for the gift of lilies. Let us look with fresh eyes this coming Easter; let us let forgiveness be the way we walk with each.  This is a time of renewal and a time to start anew and let our past go.  Our focus today will be on the value of hope to inspire us to serve and how forgiveness can be our fuel for service.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.
