[Quote No.60571] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Balance life's need areas:-] I see life as a living body. To be happy, we must have tone in each limb of our life- emotional, professional, relationships, fiscal, physical wellness, parenting... And so on. But most of us have built up tone in one area, and the others are atrophied. We might be great at working, but suffer in the relationship category, for instance. To have harmony and happiness, we need to have each aspect of life well toned. This has been my life's work. It's a journey I am still on." - Jewel Kilcher
American singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer, actress, author, and poet. She has received four Grammy Award nominations and, as of 2008, has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. [Refer JewelNeverBroken.com ]

"[Depression has been defined as 'too low a rate of positive experiences'. If this is true for you follow this advice:] Write a list of simple things that give you pleasure... and do them at least a few times a week. Writing down the things that bring you a sense of pleasure and happiness, and reviewing your list on a regular basis, can help you remember to carve out the time to do those simple little things that reinforce your belief that life is indeed good." - Dr. Joseph Mercola

"What we notice is what resonates with our inner perspective [optimistic-positive-bright light or pessimistic-negative-dark shadow]. We tend to overlook what does not connect with our current attitude or sense of awareness. When it comes to a tragic occurrence, do we focus on the horror stories or on the stories of courage and support? Both are available to us." - Gail Pursell Elliott

"Though freedom and wealth are both good things which most of us desire and though we often need both to obtain what we wish, they still remain different. Whether or not I am my own master and can follow my own choice and whether the possibilities from which I must choose are many or few are two entirely different questions! The courtier [business-person, employee] living in the lap of luxury but at the beck and call of his prince [investor or customer, employer or customer] may be much less free than a poor peasant or artisan, less able to live his own life and to choose his own opportunities for usefulness!" - Friedrich A. Hayek

[Quote No.60714] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Focus on what want to feel or do and distract from what don't want to feel or do:] Distracting yourself with an intense mental task (like doing math problems, filling out questionnaires) can help reduce bad feelings. Via in-mind.org: But how exactly can numbers replace feelings? Research suggests it is because both cognitive tasks and emotional responses make use of the same limited mental resources (Baddeley, 2007; Siemer, 2005; Van Dillen and Koole, 2007). Granted that this limitation has certain drawbacks (most people can't call, drive, and eat simultaneously), it may have some benefits as well. That is, the resources that are used to perform a cognitive task are no longer available for emotional processes. Accordingly, people can rid themselves from unwanted feelings by engaging in a cognitive activity, such as doing math equations (Van Dillen and Koole, 2007), playing a game of Tetris (Holmes, James, Coode-Bate, and Deeprose, 2008), visualizing scenes such as sitting in a double-decker bus driving down the street (Rusting and Nolen-Hoeksema, 1998), sorting cards (Morrow and Nolen-Hoeksema, 1990), responding to colored lights (Christenfeld, 1997), or filling out bogus questionnaires (Glynn et al., 2002)." - Eric Barker

"[The human need for life-skills, existential empowerment, individual freedom and personal responsibility:-] The person in peak-experiences feels himself, more than other times, to be the responsible, active, creating center of his activities and of his perceptions. He feels more like a prime-mover, more self-determined (rather than caused, determined, helpless, dependent, passive, weak, bossed). He feels himself to be his own boss, fully responsible, fully volitional, with more 'free-will' than at other times, master of his fate, an agent." - Abraham Maslow
A psychologist and the founder of the school of thought known as humanistic psychology. Perhaps best-remembered for his famous needs hierarchy. As quoted from his book, 'Toward a Psychology of Being', published 1968.

[Quote No.60745] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Fantasy:-] Create A Mental Haven: When we travel to locations noted for their tranquil settings, we become calm and relaxed. We let go of all tension and stress. It is not the place that enables one to feel this inner peace. It is one's mind which accomplishes this. When the setting is just right, our minds let go of all the factors that prevent us from feeling serene. And serenity is what we experience. Your mind has the ability to create [imagine] a serene personal haven. The place you can visualize can be truly perfect. When you mentally come to your personal haven, you immediately feel all tension and stress melting away. If you ever find yourself in a place that is especially challenging to your level of serenity, mentally visit your personal utopia." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin
From his book, 'Serenity', p.86.

[Quote No.60778] Need Area: Fun > General
"3 to 1: The Positivity Ratio: Researcher Barbara Fredrickson worked with mathematician M. Losada to arrive at this ratio: 3 to 1. Most of us, apparently, experience roughly two positive experiences, thoughts, or emotions for every one negative such experience, and our happiness levels remain somewhat constant. However, if we are able to consistently reach three positives for every one negative, this seems to be a tipping point that leads to greater overall happiness, resilience, and emotional wellbeing. This is great news, considering that there are many things we can do to experience more positivity, including minimizing unnecessary negativity and adding more positive feelings and experiences to our lives." - Elizabeth Anne Scott

[Quote No.60889] Need Area: Fun > General
"[To be happy it is best to hold realistic understandings about the world: While it is best to give people the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise remember Roman emperor and stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius' morning recitation to himself to ward off being unexpectedly disappointed by people that day: Today...] I shall meet with meddling, ungrateful, violent, treacherous, envious, and unsociable people. [But remember it could always be worse and it is best for my happiness if I only try to control what is within my power and accept and distract my attention-focus from what isn't, especially if otherwise it would upset me.]" - Marcus Aurelius
(121 AD - 180 AD), stoic philosopher and Roman emperor from 161 AD till his death. He knew of what he spoke, for example, in 'A Guide to the Good Life' by William B. Irvine, writes of him that 'He was sick, possibly with an ulcer. His family life was a source of distress: his wife appears to have been unfaithful to him, and of the at least 14 children she bore him, only six survived. Added to this were the stresses that came with ruling an empire. During his reign, there were numerous frontier uprisings, and Marcus often went personally to oversee campaigns against upstart tribes. His own officials most notably, Avidius Cassius, the governor of Syria rebelled against him. His subordinates were insolent to him, which insolence he bore with 'an unruffled temper'. Citizens told jokes at his expense and were not punished for doing so. During his reign, the empire also experienced plague, famine, and natural disasters such as the earthquake at Smyrna.'

"[The Stoic curriculum is not about] ...revenues or income, or peace or war, but about happiness and unhappiness, success and failure, slavery and freedom. [A stoic person is not] ...able to speak fluently about philosophic principles as an idle babbler, but about things that will do you good if your child dies, or your brother dies, or if you must die or be tortured. ...Let others practice lawsuits, others study problems, others syllogisms; here [learning stoicism] you practice how to die, how to be enchained, how to be racked, how to be exiled. ...Show me a man who though sick is happy, who though in danger is happy, who though in prison is happy, and I'll show you a Stoic." - Epictetus
Stoic philosopher and teacher. ['COURAGE UNDER FIRE:- Testing Epictetus's Doctrines in a Laboratory of Human Behavior', by James Bond Stockdale --- Refer http://media.hoover.org/sites/default/files/documents/978-0-8179-3692-1_1.pdf ]

"[The importance of focus and distraction:] Failure to drop one focus and move on to others can, for example, leave the mind lost in repeating loops of chronic anxiety. At clinical extremes it means being lost in helplessness, hopelessness, and self-pity in depression; or panic and catastrophizing in anxiety disorders; or countless repetitions of ritualistic thoughts or acts (touch the door fifty times before leaving) in obsessive-compulsive disorder. The power to disengage our attention from one thing and move it to another is essential for well-being!" - Daniel Goleman

"'Top 10 Reasons You Should Smile Every Day - Why Smiling Is So Powerful' - Many see smiling simply as an involuntary response to things that bring you joy or laughter. While this observation is certainly true, what most people overlook is that smiling can be just as much a voluntary response as a conscious and powerful choice. Countless scientific studies have confirmed that a genuine smile is generally considered attractive to others around us. Other studies have shed light on how the act of smiling can elevate your mood and the mood of those around you. Still others have found a strong link between good health, longevity, and smiling. Most importantly, studies have shown that just the act of smiling (making the physical facial shapes and movements), whether the result of real joy or an act, can have both short- and long-term benefits on people's health and wellbeing. Still not convinced? Here are the top 10 reasons you should make a conscious effort to smile every day. -- 1 Smiling Makes Us Attractive: We are naturally drawn to people who smile. There is a real physical attraction factor linked to the act of smiling. Not surprisingly, more severe or negative facial expressions like frowns, scowls, and grimaces actually work in the opposite manner, effectively pushing people away. Instead, use the attraction power of your smile to draw people in. -- 2 Smiling Relieves Stress: Stress can permeate our entire being, and can really show up in our faces. Smiling not only helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed, but can actually help reduce stress. Believe it or not, smiling can reduce stress even if you don't feel like smiling or even know that you're smiling! When you are stressed, take the time to put on a smile. You and those around you will reap the benefits. -- 3 Smiling Elevates Our Mood: Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There's a good chance your mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you elevate your mood because the physical act of smiling actually activates neural messaging in your brain. A simple smile can trigger the release of neural communication boosting neuropeptides as well as mood-boosting neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. Think of smiling like a natural anti-depressant. -- 4 Smiling Is Contagious: How many smiles have been described as having the power to lighten up the room? While it is certainly a beautiful sentiment, it carries a hint of truth. Smiling not only has the power to elevate your mood, but it can also change the moods of others and make things happier. The part of your brain that is responsible for your controlling the facial expression of smiling is an unconscious automatic response area. Meaning that smiling can be completely unconscious, particularly when it comes to our habit of mimicking another person's smile. Yes, it is scientifically proven that smiles are 'contagious!' -- 5 Smiling Boosts Your Immune System: Smiling can also boost your overall health. The act of smiling actually helps the human immune system to function more effectively. It is thought that when you smile, immune function improves because you are more relaxed (thanks to the release of certain neurotransmitters). In addition to taking precautions like washing your hands, why not try to prevent the cold and flu by smiling? -- 6 Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure: When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference? -- 7 Smiling Makes Us Feel Good: Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three neurotransmitters make us feel good from head to toe. Not only do these natural chemicals elevate your mood, but they also relax your body and reduce physical pain. Smiling is a natural drug. -- 8 Smiling Makes You Look Younger: Not only can smiling make you more attractive, it can also make you look more youthful. The muscles we use to smile also lift the face, making a person appear younger. So instead of opting for a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better. -- 9 Smiling Makes You Seem Successful: Studies have shown that people who smile regularly appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and are more likely to be approached. Try putting on a smile at meetings and business appointments. You might find that people react to you differently. -- 10 Smiling Helps You Stay Positive: Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard, isn't it? Even when a smile feels unnatural or forced, it still sends the brain and ultimately the rest of our body the message that 'Life is Good!' Stay away from depression, stress, and worry by smiling." - Mark Stibich, PhD
