27 Simple Things to Start Doing for Your Happiness

I am endlessly fascinated by the link between the way we choose to live our lives and the happiness we enjoy on a daily basis. There are choices that you make every day, some of which seem completely unrelated to your happiness, that dramatically impact the way you feel mentally and physically. Over the years, through our coaching practice and premium course, Angel and I have literally spoken to thousands of people who are struggling to find happiness in their lives. Marc and Angel: Getting Back to Happy. That's a question you have to ask yourself.

Marc and Angel: Getting Back to Happy

The way we see it, Getting Back to Happy is an investment. An investment in YOU. An investment in a happier, simpler, more fulfilling future. An investment in living your life at an exceptional level from this moment forward. Which means it's not some generic, run-of-the-mill program. How much do you think this knowledge is worth? You can get exactly what you want for yourself starting today. But you can’t do it alone. The cost of personal, professional, and relationship coaching by an experienced coach or counselor in the United States varies widely, dictated by geographical location and a client’s needs. Let’s assume you get an incredible deal and find an experienced coach for $150 per hour, and you see her two afternoons a week for a year. ($150 an hour) x (2 hours of coaching a week) x (52 weeks in a year) = $15,600 for a year’s worth of coaching BUT… here comes the really great news…

This Is What Happens In An Emotionally Abusive Relationship. I always told myself that I’d never stay in an abusive relationship.

This Is What Happens In An Emotionally Abusive Relationship

I’d hear stories and see friends stick around with douche bags who hit them and pushed them around, and they’d just make excuses, stick around, and love him. Because after all “he loves me.” I always said that’d never be me, and that I’d leave with the first sign. That is until I woke up one day, after weeks and nights of crying myself to sleep because I loved a guy who didn’t love me back, and realized I was right in the middle of one. No, he never hit me, or told me where I could and couldn’t go. I’d call and I know he saw, but he’d ignore it time and time again. You know what I should have done according to my prior statement of “I’d never stay in an abusive relationship?” I isolated myself. His love was like a drug. So I stayed.

Maybe I would have my own place or already have the job I always wanted. And maybe I would be in a stable relationship and have it grow into a beautiful companionship. Dear 20-Somethings: Get Your Sh*t Together Already! Your ‘Twenties’: the time in your life where you hardly have any idea who you are, yet you’re expected to have your sh*t together.

Dear 20-Somethings: Get Your Sh*t Together Already!

It’s complete B.S. but it’s a growing experience. Every drunken mistake, every part-time job you hate, every 2AM study session, every nerve-wracking drive to an interview, every depressing car payment, every tequila shot to your accomplishments–these are the craziest and best years of your life. But if there’s one thing I hate about being in my twenties it’s the lax ‘I’ll figure it out later’ attitude I so often run into. The whole ‘none of us have our lives figured out yet,’ the ‘just chill out,’ the ‘stop worrying about everything’ and the ‘you’re not supposed to have your sh*t together’ mindsets. Sure, yeah, there’s something to be said about not over-thinking, about relaxing, about not stressing over what you can’t control.

Case in point: “fumbling around bumping into things looking for food.” Really? Your twenties are the crazy, selfish, discovery years. The Get It Together Plan.
