Consider all of the above ~ tips, tricks, strategies, information ~ to be tools in your happiness belt. This way you keep all your successful growth habits close by.  Pull them out often for review and use them when you need to.

My suggestion is that you go through the list 3 more times ~ read the articles and implement (3 more months).  Remember ~ studies have shown that it takes 30 days to change a behavior and 90 days to make it permanent. Take that extra month to really cement all your new and successful growth  habits and behaviors.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this challenge, have found some tools, techniques, tips, and ideas that have begun to help you increase the Happiness in your life.  It’s amazing what will happen when you start to become aware and mindful of how you feel, and do what you can to increase your happiness and that of those around you. 

Where do you go from here? You keep implementing and continue to practice being happy regularly. Remember the Happiness Journal I talked about back on day 17? It’s an excellent tool for you to use to keep yourself on track and move forward for more happiness in your life.
