101 Ways to Be Really Happy: Step # 68– Make it a Game


Back when I first started my business, I did some stage hypnosis, mostly for Project Graduation. The thistage hypnosisng I really like about doing stage games with kids is that they don’t take themselves too seriously.

Life works better that way, too… when you don’t take it too seriously. So a long time ago, I figured out I could add to my happiness factor if I treated life as one big game.

If you don’t happen to be a stage hypnotist, here are some Life Games you can try for yourself:

  1. See how many irritated people you can get to smile or laugh in one day.
  2. Count how many times you hear “happy” words in one hour: e.g., happy, joy, fun, silly. This is a great game because the more you focus on Happy things, the happier you will feel. Try it if you don’t believe me.
  3. See how many people you can convince to do a random act of kindness every day for one week.
  4. Share an article (hint: one of these blog posts would work!) about how to be happy with as many people as you can and ask them to pass it on with a reference back to you so you can see how many people you influenced with just one email.
  5. Come up with your own happiness games to share.
