Five Things that Will Make You Happier

Scientists prove (part) of what Scripture teaches. This article lists 5 things that are proven to make you happier.
A psychologist from the University of California at Riverside speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science said she and colleagues reviewed 51 studies that tested attempts to increase happiness. The results were published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology. Here they are with some more biblical terminology.
  1. Be Grateful (Okay, that one's biblical)
  2. Be Optimistic (Be Hopeful)
  3. Count Your Blessings (Rejoice)
  4. Use your strengths (Use your God-given gifts)
  5. Commit acts of kindness (Give generously)
 Granted the gospel of Jesus Christ will bring these effects (plus guaranteed suffering and trials) but it's cool to me that general revelation confirms what special revelation stated millenia ago. I'm going to count my blessings! Ching!
