The secrets of happiness…

Stop being so hopeful. Expect that most things are going to go wrong- marriage, job, holidays, kids… Look at the glass half-empty and feel grateful whenever things aren’t outright catastrophe.

Stop ranting about how awful other people are. Most annoying people aren’t awful. They are just anxious or sad. Forgive them. They didn’t set out to hurt you. They are just under a lot of pressure.

Think of death a lot. Keep a skull on your table. You’ve probably got about 400,000 hours left.

Laugh at yourself. Stop thinking yourself as a stupid idiot. Use something far nicer, a loveable fool.

Make regular appointments to talk with someone you don’t spend enough time with – You.
Ask yourself what you really want and are anxious about.

Stop trying to make yourself happy. It’s not possible. Concentrate on cheering up other people.

Look at yourself as if from the International space Station 240 miles above the Earth. From this height lots of things that are bothering you look the size they should always have been.

Throw your phone off a cliff, for a bit, so you can finally notice stuff. Especially your partner and your mum.

Give up on the idea that you should be normal. The only normal people are people you don’t know yet. Everyone is weird and that’s totally okay.
