The Good Mood Project - smile at the rising sun

i'm fascinated with being happy.  How do you be happy. Why do some people get happy easier than others.  I love experimenting with practices that set the pace of my day, and ultimately my week/month/life.  I'm generally a happy person but when you leave it up to the ebbs and flows and whims of daily life, you can get derailed by hurdles of varying degress.  It's not possible to be 100% happy 100% of the time but it doesn't hurt to take some action to ensure the best outcome

My current fave thing to do is something i call the good mood guarantee - i swiped the idea from the fab book E Cubed (I cant' figure out how to write the little cubed 3) - by Pam Grout - it's one of her "excercises" so i truly didn't make it up but i've made it MINE

so I challeng you to try it!
Every day this week pick a song - you can pick my songs - i'm going to post one new one for 5 days - put it on your iphone, put in your earbuds, and dance  - yeah, shake your booty like there's no tomorrow.  Think of that cliche "dance like no one is looking" THAT.

There's no way you can do this without smiling, and lifting your spirits - I promise

I'm gonna start you out with what has become my DAILY mantra song - i listen to this one first before any other song i choose, i bop around making coffee, cleaning up the kitchen, whatever first morning things i do.  It truly makes me happy
