    This time of year thoughts of joy, happiness, and positivity seem to prevail more throughout our world.  But why should it only be this time of year that people feel good about themselves and spread positive vibes amongst others?  If you think about it long enough, you will realize that you can have this warm, fuzzy feeling inside of you year round.  How you ask?  By doing what makes you feel good.  Do you like to dance? Well then turn on some good dance music after a stressful day of work, and dance without a care! The release of tension and forgetting your worries even for a short time releases endorphins that make you feel fabulous!
     Don’t like dancing? How about singing your favorite song at the top of your lungs? Who cares if you’re not a great singer?  It’s just you and your stereo reliving music that holds significant memories for you! Where are my lovers of eighties rock? That music was built on good vibes! Think the ending song from The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire, “Love is a Battlefield”, anything from the long haired band set (Def Leopard, Guns and Roses, Jovi, Aerosmith, etc). A nineties music lover? Well, blast some Nirvana, Green Day, Third Eye Blind, whatever gets you feeling good! 
I love dancing and singing to anything and everything from The Beatles to Lady Gaga. Music is just a natural source of positivity for me! The good feelings created from this release of tension and daily stress helps me stay an upbeat person and makes me smile for miles!
Smiling! That’s the final way to stay optimistic and joyful year round!  Smiling makes you more approachable and creates a friendly glow about you. You know the saying “You catch more flies with honey?”  This is so true! People are more willing to help you out when you approach them with a smile.  Smiling and laughing release those feel good endorphins making everything in the world seem a little bit brighter!
  Using these simple techniques mentioned, will help keep the good feelings we experience at this time of the year going throughout the whole year!  Maybe I’m super optimistic, but wouldn’t life be better if we all found a way to keep our glass half full for 365 days a year?  I’m not saying sad things won’t happen, but if we strive to find ways to make us feel good, then maybe we could get through our lots in life, and feel amazing in the process! Here’s to finding what makes you happy!
