10 Ways to Be Happier
How happy are you―really? If there’s room for improvement, try one of these suggestions. by Gretchen Rubin
A few years ago, on a morning like any other, I had a sudden realization: I was in danger of wasting my life. As I stared out the rain-spattered window of a New York City bus, I saw that the years were slipping by. “What do I want from life?” I asked myself. “Well…I want to be happy.” I had many reasons to be happy: My husband was the tall, dark, handsome love of my life; we had two delightful girls; I was a writer, living in my favorite city. I had friends; I had my health; I didn’t have to color my hair. But too often I sniped at my husband or the drugstore clerk. I felt dejected after even a minor professional setback. I lost my temper easily. Is that how a happy person would act? I decided on the spot to begin a systematic study of happiness. (A little intense, I know. But that’s the kind of thing that appeals to me.) In the end, I spent a year test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific studies, and tips from popular culture. If I followed all the advice, I wanted to know, would it work? Well, the year is over, and I can say: It did. I made myself happier. And along the way I learned a lot about how to be happier. Here are those lessons.

1. Don’t start with profundities. When I began my Happiness Project, I realized pretty quickly that, rather than jumping in with lengthy daily meditation or answering deep questions of self-identity, I should start with the basics, like going to sleep at a decent hour and not letting myself get too hungry. Science backs this up; these two factors have a big impact on happiness.

2. Do let the sun go down on anger. I had always scrupulously aired every irritation as soon as possible, to make sure I vented all bad feelings before bedtime. Studies show, however, that the…...

The Love Letter

...I would like to start off this letter with congratulations to Batelco over the massive improvements they have made in speed for both Home and Business Broadband connections. As a loyal customer of Batelco, who has been with the company for over 25 years, I can attest to the great leaps Batelco has made in terms of both affordability and quality. That’s not to say, however, that there is no room for improvement. One area that is in sore need of attention is Customer Service. For the past several months, an item has been appearing on my bill named “Additional E-mail Charges”. The cost of this item is a whopping BD 12.500 a month!! To put this in perspective, for one of the months in question, my actual calling charges were only between 100-200 fils. The rest of the bill was the fixed line rental, the internet rental and the Additional E-mail Charges. In order to find out exactly what these charges were, I decided to call the Batelco helpline on 196. The executive I spoke with told me that this particular Additional E-mail Charge did not appear in my bill on his system. He also told me that since I only had the original free email address assigned to me by Batelco when I first took the internet connection, this charge on my bill made no sense. He asked me to visit the Batelco Building in Manama and speak to the executives there face to face and register a complaint. This is where all the trouble began. The executives at the Batelco Building told me to register a complaint over...

Love Letter to a Piece of Technology

...To What Piece of Technology Would You Write a ‘Love Letter’? Dear Computer, It is true, that I’ve never addressed my feeling towards you in letter, although we spent extraordinary amounts of time together. For this, I owe you a special gesture in form of a letter. Since our beginning in 2009, we’ve had some good times – especially those revolving around playing games and browsing the web, but also the ones that includes me typing in my homework on you. Those were the very best, and I wouldn’t use any other computer in the world for this particular assignment. With that in mind, I should take this opportunity to explain why I sometimes use other computers – it’s not that I don’t enjoy your company or that you’ve become technologically outdated, it’s simply a matter of convenience. I invested in this nifty little laptop, not to replace you, but so I didn’t have to bring you all the way to school every day, because, let’s face it, you are somewhat heavy. The Intel Q9450 CPU and 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM really make the weight go up, along with the ATI 5850 GFX-card. But it’s these little details that I appreciate about you. Anyways, I should probably tell you how much you really mean to me, and as you can probably tell by all the countless hours I spend using you, it’s a whole lot. I don’t think it’s going too far as to say that I deeply and utterly love you! You’ve made my life better by being so vast in computing power, so ever silent while powered on and you’ve......

...person who has been there for me through all the good and bad times. Thank you for being my one true love and making my life so wonderful. With all my love, Letter #2: Dearest, How can I ever adequately express my love for you? Over the years (months) of our relationship, I have come to realize what a wonderful person you are and how much you mean to me. Thank you for being the 'light of my life' and for helping me to be a better person. All my love, Letter #3: Dear Jane, I love you! Do I need to say more? I know I don't tell you very often how I feel about you, but you should know that you mean a lot to me and I don't know what I would do without you in my life. I hope we will be together for a long, long time. Love always, Letter #4: My dearest wife, Traveling as much as I do, I need to write this 'love letter' to let you know how much I miss you when I am away, and how much I love you. You are the meaning in my life and make each day I spend with you wonderful and fulfilling. I only wish my job allowed me more time to be at home with you and the kids. It helps me to carry these pictures of you with me wherever I go, but nothing compensates for our not being together. Until I am with you again, please accept this note as a promise of my faithfulness and affection. Your loving husband, PS. Give my love and hugs to the kids!

"In the loose girdle of soft rain." Part Three: Poetry: Page 295 This specific line created a lovely visual of someone loosening their belt to see how much rain they can catch in their pants. This line is an example of a metaphor as well as personification. I believe the author is trying to ask how much room will there be for memoirs. He compares the rain to a loosened belt allowing room for growth. "And liable to melt as snow." Part Three: Poetry: Page 296 This specific line emphasis how fragile the letters are that have been pressed. It is an example of a simile. I started to think about how frail paper can get over decades of time, such as the Declaration of Independence . You don't want to touch it because you're afraid it might break in your hand.

Love Letter

...Age discrimination is a large issue in the United States today. All ages can be discriminated against, teenagers are considered shifty and untrustworthy, elderly considered incapable, youth considered boisterous. It affects not only the people who are discriminated against, but also those who lose valuable relationships by judging them based on age. An example of this is one day me and a couple of friends were hanging out one night in Times Square just going into random stores looking around, taking pictures, and doing what normal teenagers do when they’re in a group. We all walk laughing into the M&M store. We walk by the section where they had the random little M&M toys, walk by the candy, and then walk out without making any purchases. What is the first perception of this? It might be, and in many cases it is, that we stole something. Maybe the employee working behind the register will even go as far as to call the police on these teens, who didn’t steal anything, but were discriminated against simply because we were “unruly teenagers”. This happens every day, all over America. We don’t tell the youth very much, because they “won’t understand”, they’re “too young”. We gawk when elderly people run marathons, or even participate in simple recreational activities such as volleyball or swimming, because they are “old”, and “incapable”. People who are discriminated against, no matter the reason, can be hurt by it. Age discrimination is the same as racial......

...The Boston Massacre was a street fight that occurred on March 5, 1770, between a "patriot" mob, throwing snowballs, stones, and sticks, and a squad of British solders. On the cold, snowy night of March 5, 1770, a mob of American colonists gathers at the Customs House in Boston and begins taunting the British soldiers guarding the building. The commanding officer at the Customs House, ordered his men to fix their bayonets and join the guard outside the building.The colonists responded by throwing snowballs and other objects at the British regulars, and Private Hugh Montgomery was hit, leading him to discharge his rifle at the crowd. Boston , the capital of the Province of Massachusetts Bay and an important shipping town, was a major center of resistance to unpopular acts of taxation customs officials seized the Liberty , a sloop owned by leading Boston merchant John Hancock , on allegations that the ship had been involved in smuggling. The crowd continued to press around the soldiers, taunting them by yelling, "Fire!", by spitting at and throwing snowballs and other small objects at them. [ 23 ] Richard Palmes, a local innkeeper who was carrying a cudgel (ie, club), came up to Preston and asked if the soldiers' weapons were loaded. He recovered his weapon, and was thought to angrily shout "Damn you, fire!", then discharged it into the crowd though no command was actually given. Palmes swung his cudgel first at Montgomery, hitting his arm, and then at Preston. He......

...I’ve kept this for so long… was too bashful then. Now lost times haunt me big time (yet bashful still). I’m not expecting a reply for this, no more. I mean, first of all, you hardly know me and I’m not even sure if you still remember me. I just don’t wanna deprive you of the due compliment. The fact that I’ve sent this, it already paid it all actually. The sentiment, the time, and the other ones indescribable, they were given justice at the instant. And so I thank you. As I’ve mentioned in the letter, I hope this serves a thing of inspiration to you (well, at the most). My only prayer is that this crap will hopefully make you more feel good about yourself; even for just a little or even for a single second perhaps. There’s really nothing much I can do now to return the favor back but this. You seem to have all things by far. Ako naman, I got everything to offer that is when pigs fly. I should have given this during the Joy Luck Club time. The original letter is preserved since then, except for the month stuff… you’ll see. A little look back from those times will probably help you understand some jargon. Ooh by the way, if you’re wondering, I got your account from the people search engine via the UP site… and definitely with some help from a friend named Marnie. Hope you don’t mind. Ei just to clarify, I’m no stalker here. Needed to say that, you might be freaked out. Ding! Another offense. Did some net surfing just lately and also found out curly......

Love Letter

...Julia, My love I find it hard to express my monumentous feelings for you in the short scattered, conversations we must resort to. I pondered on this problem for days on end, until I thought to write you a letter. I gave it to you myself since those post office fools are not to be trusted. After finding a way to express myself I had to find out how to express myself. Please bear with me since I know you are not much of a reader. Julia, as you walk this earth our country is still young, and there is still hope of a rebellion. Your generation could be our last hope, and if you manage to overthrow our unwanted leader we could marry and spend our time together without worry. I long for the day where we have our own bed and our own room without the menacing telescreeen on the opposite wall. I picture your face on everything I see in a day. Your long flowing dark hair, your young fresh body. You have awoken in me a love I have never known before. All my life I have longed for companionship, and with you I get that and much more. You are my world, Julia, you make this barren, colourless world habitable, and with your courage we can make it bright and vibrant again! If we fail, however, we fail together, but they cannot take away our love. The party cannot reach inside of us and pull out our powerful love. As I wait for your arrivals above Mr. Charrington’s shop, I know that we will one day part, but I also know that when we part we will always remember the times we have......

Second to my final destination ( … Well this is not a horror film; this destination I’m talking about is the force or factor that makes me go and face every life’s circumstances I am facing.

Yes, I’ve been dreaming to become one someday and I am trying to give my very best for this not to become an unclear vision. I want this to manifest, I want this to happen in my life in every good ways or means I can. As I’ve said on my recent posts, I love to go somewhere, I love to experience different culture, and I want to meet new and different people. There are some times in my life when I face mirror, stand classically and gracefully and try to imitate flight attendants posture and speaking.

...Excel表格的35招必学秘技 也许你已经在Excel中完成过上百张财务报表,也许你已利用Excel函数实现过上千次的复杂运算,也许你认为Excel也不过如此,甚至了无新意。但我们平日里无数次重复的得心应手的使用方法只不过是Excel全部技巧的百分之一。本专题从Excel中的一些鲜为人知的技巧入手,领略一下关于Excel的别样风情。 一、让不同类型数据用不同颜色显示   在工资表中,如果想让大于等于2000元的工资总额以“红色”显示,大于等于1500元的工资总额以“蓝色”显示,低于1000元的工资总额以“棕色”显示,其它以“黑色”显示,我们可以这样设置。   1.打开“工资表”工作簿,选中“工资总额”所在列,执行“格式→条件格式”命令,打开“条件格式”对话框。单击第二个方框右侧的下拉按钮,选中“大于或等于”选项,在后面的方框中输入数值“2000”。单击“格式”按钮,打开“单元格格式”对话框,将“字体”的“颜色”设置为“红色”。   2.按“添加”按钮,并仿照上面的操作设置好其它条件(大于等于1500,字体设置为“蓝色”;小于1000,字体设置为“棕色”)。   3.设置完成后,按下“确定”按钮。   看看工资表吧,工资总额的数据是不是按你的要求以不同颜色显示出来了。 二、建立分类下拉列表填充项   我们常常要将企业的名称输入到表格中,为了保持名称的一致性,利用“数据有效性”功能建了一个分类下拉列表填充项。   1.在Sheet2中,将企业名称按类别(如“工业企业”、“商业企业”、“个体企业”等)分别输入不同列中,建立一个企业名称数据库。   2.选中A列(“工业企业”名称所在列),在“名称”栏内,输入“工业企业”字符后,按“回车”键进行确认。   仿照上面的操作,将B、C……列分别命名为“商业企业”、“个体企业”……   3.切换到Sheet1中,选中需要输入“企业类别”的列(如C列),执行“数据→有效性”命令,打开“数据有效性”对话框。在“设置”标签中,单击“允许”右侧的下拉按钮,选中“序列”选项,在下面的“来源”方框中,输入“工业企业”,“商业企业”,“个体企业”……序列(各元素之间用英文逗号隔开),确定退出。   再选中需要输入企业名称的列(如D列),再打开“数据有效性”对话框,选中“序列”选项后,在“来源”方框中输入公式:=INDIRECT(C1),确定退出。   4.选中C列任意单元格(如C4),单击右侧下拉按钮,选择相应的“企业类别”填入单元格中。然后选中该单元格对应的D列单元格(如D4),单击下拉按钮,即可从相应类别的企业名称列表中选择需要的企业名称填入该单元格中。   提示:在以后打印报表时,如果不需要打印“企业类别”列,可以选中该列,右击鼠标,选“隐藏”选项,将该列隐藏起来即可。   三、建立“常用文档”新菜单   在菜单栏上新建一个“常用文档”菜单,将常用的工作簿文档添加到其中,方便随时调用。   1.在工具栏空白处右击鼠标,选“自定义”选项,打开“自定义”对话框。在“命令”标签中,选中“类别”下的“新菜单”项,再将“命令”下面的“新菜单”拖到菜单栏。   按“更改所选内容”按钮,在弹出菜单的“命名”框中输入一个名称(如“常用文档”)。   2.再在“类别”下面任选一项(如“插入”选项),在右边“命令”下面任选一项(如“超链接”选项),将它拖到新菜单(常用文档)中,并仿照上面的操作对它进行命名(如“工资表”等),建立第一个工作簿文档列表名称。...

...Creating Texts: Letter Writing By Lachlan Reid – 989856 August 26, 1991 (letter ONE) Dear Charlie, I wish I could send you this letter, but I understand why you wish that I don’t know you. I want you to know that I will try to figure out who you are, I’ve always liked to know who I am writing to and I’m sorry for that. I promise that if I find you, I will not approach you, I will simply leave the replies to your letters for you, I may see you but you won’t see me. Promise me not to be mad, please? I will always reply to your letters, I believe that’s what you should do with letters, don’t you? As you tell me about your life, I will tell you about mine. I can already tell that we may be more similar than you may think and have experienced events in our short lives that may also be similar. I’m sorry to hear about your friend Michael, I can only imagine how his suicide has affected you. I have never experienced the loss of someone to suicide, although I have lost family members who were very close to me. I’ve seen school counsellors who tell me that “time heels grief and the pain”, but some days I wonder if the grief and pain will ever go away. I hope you never think of killing or hurting yourself Charlie, you appear to be an intellectual person, who many people would miss if you were gone. I think it’s good to cry, not all the time and for no reason, but sometimes things hurt so badly that we can’t help but cry. I know after I’ve had a cry, I often......

...what it seems to be but it doesn’t really matter as long as you’re there, as long as you cares I’m okay, I’m contented. I met you for some reason, and no words can ever describe how overwhelmed I am on whatever it is that we have, or it might just be an illusion I create to satisfy my longingness for someone who’d make me feel special: and if it is I don’t even want to wake up! I thank GOD for meeting someone who is willing to make me beam & melt my heart away with simple things that surely do matter to me! I don’t expect anything to happen at all we indeed find love in surreal places, with people whom we thought are out of our league, on a time where we thought everything is hopeless. The only thing I need to do now is to make you feel how special you are to me, how happy I am that you’re around, how overwhelmed I am by the efforts and actions you have shown & of coarse how thankful I am for letting me love you the best way I can, furthermore, I need to prepare myself to a series of unexpected events whether good or bad. But one thing is for sure i am willing to wait for that moment that you would be able to say yes and we will be able to be together as couple you just came in time! you were the answer to my prayers. I can still smell your perfume, still can hear your voice, and can still see your face every time I close my eyes! I just can get enough of you and as I head to my bed I know you’d be the last person I’d think about and the first person in my mind as......
