It seems especially appropriate as Thanksgiving is upon us in the US, to remember to give thanks to those for whom we are grateful. We should but often forget to tell those who we like or love how much they mean to us, provide compliments or just thank them for the things they do for us. We may think about it but never say it…so let’s say it, especially now. But what about those who challenge us in our lives? Those who perhaps even make our days more difficult with worry, annoyance or other negative emotions. What about them? Should we give thanks to them? Yes, I believe we should be even more grateful to them. You may think I’m twisted but here’s why.

I am having a guest on my radio show that will be speaking about Empowerment of Women and I began to wonder what women can do to get on the empowerment train and stay there.

So where does social media stand in terms of enhancing our lives. Well, I guess that depends on how you use it. The latest statistics show that around 42% of online adults use multiple social networking sites. Perhaps not surprisingly, the majority of social media users are now multiple ages. You actually can become addicted to social media. The more positive reinforcement you get in the form of “like”, “follows” and comments can boost the rewards system in your brain making you want more of it and making it harder to stop. So how can we use social media for our betterment? A study, from the University of California San Diego (UCSD), suggests that using social media may even spread happiness. The research team, led by James Fowler of the School of Medicine at UCSD, found that happy status updates encourage other users to post happy status updates themselves.

Part 2 of this series is on the topic of money and happiness. There are many sources that discuss this topic. The way I sum it up is the following: you must have enough money to sustain yourself and your lifestyle. Once you are reasonably comfortable, then money doesn’t affect you that much. One could question how to get to that point of sustainability. That is a whole other topic which will be addressed in our Life Balance- Work Series. Let’s say you’re fine with your life style but you’re still not happy. The question to think about is what can I do with the money I have to create a happier life? Read my blog and find out how.

So I’ve been pondering if a pessimist should care about being more optimistic and I say YES. I say this for several reasons. First of all, there are many research studies done on the major mental and physical health improvements that typically occur when we are more optimistic. I’m talking about lower stress, less depression, more energy, more resilience and more success in life, to name a few.
