We all want to be happy. It’s one of the things most humans have in common—we seek out that which brings us happiness. But how do we bring the most happiness into our lives?
This month, we’re discussing how to “Think Yourself Happy” with seven ways to change your mind and be happier, on page 14. Whether through meditation or gratitude, or reframing your negative experiences to be positives, there are plenty of ways to practice more
positivity and earn more happiness in return.
Happiness may mean something different to everyone, and we embraced that with a variety of articles in this August edition. These pages are absolutely full of wise words on happiness, from tips to stop worrying about what you can’t control (page 18), to simple ways to help gain control over your stressed brain (page 20). Some of us may simply seek the feeling of contentment. Learn some tools to help you focus on being content on page 13.
In order to find more happiness, many of us could use the help of a life coach. On page 22, learn how working with a life coach can help you “Unleash Your True Potential”. Coaches can help us figure out where we want to go in life, get past limiting beliefs and discover goals that we didn’t realize we had.
And during back-to-school time, parents are thinking about helping their kids reach their true potential. Did you know that one in 10 children has a vision problem that is
significant enough to impact their learning? Dr. Randy Schulman shares some insight on the basic vision skills that are necessary for kids in the classroom and beyond, on page 10.
Don’t forget to check out the Community Resource Guide, on page 30, for
practitioners of all kinds that are here in Connecticut to help you reach your goals and full potential—and get happy!
