Any way you choose to help will make a difference.

Here’s proof: The Happiness Nerd is a good human 🙂 And for a buck you can be, too!

Hello my dear happiness nerds, welcome (back)!

This just in and I had to spread the love: An awesome group of youtubers have joined forces to make it easy for you to do something about climate change. I know so many people, who want to help, but just don’t know where to start. Researching the best options online can be daunting—believe me, I’ve been doing it for weeks and there’s still no end in sight. But I’ve found out a couple of things. For example, planting trees, especially diverse local species in tropical climates, is one of the most effective (and beautiful!) measures to heal Mother Earth (see sources here,here, and here), who has fed us, clothed us, and gave us shelter for all these millenia.

And this is exactly what…

It doesn’t spread through any natural way. It grows inside our body. We create it ourselves to ruin our healthy body.

Don’t panic. The disease is nothing but the one that I wrote it as a title.

Those who are affected by it can only gets more and more additional friends of it. Such as stress, loneliness, anxiety,etc..,.

How to keep your to-do list short and still be insanely productive.

Salted Caramel

A to-do list forms the basis of every life skills, personal development, or productivity enhancing course.  Self improvement, self help, and time management advice always begins with a list. Blog posts, articles, audio and video life coaches all emphasize the importance of a to-do list. A list of goals, aims and objectives is considered a pre-requisite to organise your day and your life.

In the 21st century, a to-do list does not require paper and pencil. It can be made on a desktop or laptop computer. You can make it on the go on your tablet or smart phone. In this digital age, surprisingly, there are people who prefer to map their day on paper.

People (especially young people) love to fill them with monthly, weekly and…

Being a writer as well, I couldn’t help sparing some of the trials and rewards of writing with you…

The Message Pub

I don’t feel like writing. Creative writing, I mean – the novels and short stories I write that bring me such pleasure. It’s not writer’s block, at least not how I understand writer’s block. I have plenty of ideas floating around in my head that I’m itching to write down. I’m not avoiding or procrastinating. There are plenty of days when I don’t feel like writing, yet I sit down and do it anyway. This is different. I. Just. Can’t. Do. It.

As I’ve struggled to find my way back to my happy writing place, I read a blog post that helped. It’s titled “Motors” on “Andrew’s View of the Week”. He has a clever writing style using metaphors interspersed with engineering terms. Anyway, I think I’ve run out of creative energy and I need to recharge my batteries.

How do I recharge? People. I’m an extrovert, so social…

I hear a lot of people talking about this. I’ve noticed a common theme among these teachings that the ego is bad and the intuition is good. It seems to be a widely accepted belief that the ego is something that we have to transcend or conquer in order to live life as our highest […]
