Kim and I got back from our trip to India earlier this week. It was an eventful trip involving all the aspects of a thrilling story. We had adventure, drama, suspense and a climax. We also tried to capture our journey using an travel journal. You be the judge of our efforts :: link to our travel journal
Btw, in case you do not read her blog, do stroll over to Kim’s blog. She writes real well 🙂 if I may say so myself.

I came across this npr story on course Psych 1504 offered at Harvard. This class is also known as "Positive Psychology". Seemed like a counter cultural thing to teach in our information gluttonous society :-). I like the fact that the professor took himself of the tenure track to stay happy and that his name is Tal Ben-Shahar's which sounds really cool :-)!!

Here are his tips for happiness. (Go here for the actual news item)

  1. Give yourself permission to be human.
  2. Happiness lies at the intersection between pleasure and meaning.
  3. Keep in mind that happiness is mostly dependant on our state of mind, not on our status or the state of our bank account.
  4. Simplify
  5. Remember the mind-body connection.
  6. Express gratitude, whenever possible.

As I was reading through this list I realised that I had been working recently on 4-6 especially 4 and 6. How about you?
