8 Things Needed For A Happy Life

All you need are these 8 simple yet crucial guidelines:

EXERCISE
DIET & NUTRITION
TIME IN NATURE
CONTRIBUTION & SERVICE
RELATIONSHIPS
RECREATION
RELAXATION & STRESS MANAGEMENT
SPIRITUAL OR RELIGIOUS FAITH

Yes it’s this simple…..truly. And yes, this is direct from a 13 year old. But before you toss it out the window, consider this. Who better to ‘remind’ us of what we truly need in life than someone who hasn’t lived enough of it to be ‘jaded’ yet? With our transition from child to adult comes experience but also grows a sense of insecurity, self-doubt & judgement, struggle and often exhaustion that makes most of us forget what the hell its all about in the first place. Then comes a group of children who seem capable of seeing straight through the ‘BS’ of life’s haze, the fog we all get lost in from time to time. They inspire us to get back to basics and remind us of what it means to really LIVE. Most importantly though, LIVE HAPPILY. There will always be excuses from trials and tribulations passed and we all know that life isn’t easy nor does it stop for anyone. But if these guidelines can work for a 13 year old who’s still getting a grasp on this roller coaster called Life, then it can definitely work for those of us who’ve had a bit more time trying to figure out ourselves, too.
