    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.

    in Relationships

    Thank you for joining Happiness Index.  We continue to explore service, we are returning to Life's Purpose is Service: A Path to Happiness.  

    What is the meaning of service? Is service an international convention agreed by all people? Assuming one works as a cook, dishwasher, taxi –driver, bank manager, City council person, all these positions are paid service positions. Does one focus on the fruit of the service or the work? Why is true service the road less travelled by most people?  Service as life’s purpose can be an impossible task if one is looking for a short cut to self-actualization.  If you would like to join us in this conversation to make the world better for all, please call (347) 539-5818.
