Do YOUR Friends Depress YOU??????

How to treat PROBLEM FRIENDS!!!!!
For the friend who only brings misery, and refuses to be soothed, you have a couple of choices: The first is to be the model of a good friend. Be upfront and honest with your friend and tell her or him that they are bringing you down and taking the joy out of your friendship. If your words are ineffective and the complaining continues, you may have to make a tough decision. If you’re at the point where being alone is preferable to this friend’s company, you can disengage from the friendship. Be busy when the friend calls, be unavailable for future plans, and when interaction is unavoidable, listen politely as long as circumstances dictate, and make a get-away as diplomatically as possible. You probably don’t want to provide any additional material for your friend’s next rendition of the “bad life blues.”
Friends tolerate an awful lot from one another, but there are some rules for which consequences must be enforced. Don’t let a friend suck the joy out of your life just because that’s how they add satisfaction to their own.
Be DIPLOMATIC BUT BE FIRM!!!!

Powerful News For THE HAPPY PEOPLE!!!! Proof Of Benefits From Doing Meditation!!!!

GOOD NEWS for the members of THE HAPPY PEOPLE who use Meditation as one of their paths to a HAPPY Lifestyle!!!!!

The regular practice of the right type of Meditation appears to be beneficial to the immune system, according to new research by scientists in Spain.

People who practise Meditation were found to have higher levels of leucocytes and lymphocytes in their blood than people who don’t meditate, in the recent study. Leucocytes and lymphocytes are white blood cells which play an important role in the body’s immune system by fighting infection.

Researchers at the Hospital in Badajoz, Spain, set out to evaluate the immune systems of people who Meditate.

The scientists studied who had practised Meditation..

The white blood cells of the Meditaters were compared to those of a control group of healthy adults aged 22 to 35 who had not previously done any meditation.

None of the individuals involved in the study were undergoing medical treatment or were obese or played regular sports. All participants followed a Mediterranean diet.

After analysing blood samples taken from both groups, the study found that those who practised Meditation had higher levels of lymphocytes and leucocytes than those who did not. They also had higher levels of Natural Killer cells – cells which combat viral infections and tumour formation.

The researchers concluded: “The technique of meditation studied seems to have a significant effect on immune cells. This effect shows itself in the different circulating levels of lymphocytes analysed.”

The researchers are not certain why Meditation works in this way, but suggest it might be due to the reduction of overall stress levels that the right type of Meditation causes

The researchers said:  “A number of researchers have shown that the right type of meditation can improve immune functions. Our results agree with previous studies that have been done.”

These previous studies on the effects of Meditation on the body showed that it was “an easy form of physical and mental relaxation.” They pointed out that the studies have shown that all people practising Meditation show increases in the good hormonal concentrations, low levels of anxiety and depression, and improved levels of health.

Happiness That Comes From Others!

Much new research is being done on exploring how Happiness is a combination of pleasure and purpose. Here are some of the results.

Some people will be more inclined towards finding happiness through pleasure seeking activities, other people towards purpose seeking or charitable work. A truly happy life has some balance of both pleasurable and purposeful activities. Volunteering, for example, is both pleasurable and purposeful, but particularly purposeful.  It’s a feeling of happiness caused by helping others.

The Scientists know that we exist to make ourselves happy – we can’t help it.

Everything that you do is motivated by the  good feelings that you hope will come from it, Those feelings can be made up of actions that directly bring YOU pleasure and those feelings can come from doing things that you feel will help OTHER PEOPLE! It would be foolish of you to seek out something that you knew for sure was going to make you miserable. The research being done shows that people, who spend time helping other people, feel a lot of pleasure from doing so.

Most of you know the meaning of the pleasure that comes from doing things for yourself but perhaps you should add in more of the meaningful pleasure that comes through helping others.

So how can you do this? What can you do to achieve happiness through meaningful action?

Perhaps the chief activities that bring you meaningful type of happiness are ones that draw you out of your bubble of self-interest and lead you to helping others in some way,  This can range from ordinary, day-to-day activities like helping to take care of friends, family, and community, to much larger pursuits like devoting years or decades of your life to find ways to reduce human suffering.

P.S      AND another way that doing this type of activity will bring more benefit to you is The Law Of Karma. Doing good work and helping others will bring rewards back to you. That includes Happiness. lol

British Families Want Happiness But Get Depression!

Depression, Pessimism And Suicidal Tendencies Are Increasing!

As I wrote recently, the number of people suffering from Depression has nearly doubled in the past seven years. The experts believe that the speed of growth of this problem is picking up and  the problem numbers will only only take about five years to double up again.
The future looks very grim indeed. Here is an excerpt from a Daily Telegraph article:

Daily Telegraph

British families want out as more seek relaxed life abroad. A majority of middle-class families want to leave Britain because it no longer offers them an adequate quality of life, a new survey has concluded.The report suggested that “old-fashioned British values, thriving community spirit and a more relaxed way of life” were evident in Adelaide. 

Researchers found almost two in three families wanted to emigrate overseas because of the poor weather, rude locals and a celebrity-obsessed culture. Families say they also want to escape the economic downturn, expensive housing and the “loss of community spirit and neighbourliness” in British society.The survey, conducted by the University of Huddersfield, also found most wanted a new, more relaxed life in a community with a more optimistic “can do” attitude, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

And

The report says that all these people want to leave the country but most of them won’t. Instead they will be forced, for various reasons to carry on living in the hell that modern England is becoming. With the politicians, police, legal system, hospitals and schools that we have, is it any wonder that people are feeling so depressed and desperate?

So What Can YOU Do About It?

The most important thing you can do is to avoid the depression trap and start turning yourself on to the Happiness Lifestyle. I know that this sounds rather wishy-washy but it isn’t. In fact it is the simplest thing in the world, believe me. If doing something makes you feel bad, stop doing it! If doing something makes you feel good, keep on doing it until you fall down. And keep on doing it every chance that you get.
As I said this plan is the simplest plan in the world to understand and it is, isn’t it? Here it is again in bold:
If doing something makes you feel bad, stop doing it! If doing something makes you feel good, keep on doing it until you fall down. And keep on doing it every chance that you get.
If you still don’t understand it, get a clever friend to explain it to you! LOL!
There are 300 articles here on this blog. They will teach you how to get started, how to make the changes and how to keep making improvements. Start reading them, NOW!

But You Can’t Just Go From Depressed To Happy Like That, Can You?

Perhaps not, LOL. But you can start in some small area of your life, can’t you? You could make some small area of your life work for you instead of against you, can’t you? Try to be clever about it. The cleverer you are, the better you feel when you get a result. Trust me, you will get results You should end up amazing yourself.

What Is The Most Important First Thing For Me To Do?

The single most important thing is to just get started!
Think about the areas of your life in which you would like to do this. Pick an area which is not going to be too hard. One that is not too important. When you have had some good results, your confidence will be stronger and you can work on bigger areas and get good results.

Love, Peace and Happiness,

Depression Not Poverty Kills Happiness!

Happiness And Money
If you want to be Happy, having money isn’t the most important thing. Depression is the main cause of  unhappiness and not a lack of money.

How much money you get only has a small direct affect on on how happy you feel. According to Lord Richard Layard, of the London School of Economics, in an article in the Metro. Some quotes from the story are given below in italics:

Metro: Size of salary has only a small effect on our overall wellbeing, according to a report which claims to offer the first complete snapshot of the nation’s happiness. Income matters but it’s not the only thing that matters,’Poor mental health can reduce life expectancy at the same rate as smoking – is highlighted as one of the biggest issues affecting the nation’s happiness.

As I have said, in many, many articles, Depression, not poverty, is the enemy of true Happiness. Some people are rich and unhappy, others are poor but happy. To put it another way, some people are rich AND depressed. Please don’t misunderstand me. I’m NOT saying that you should be poor if you want to be happy. The aim of The Happy People is to never be depressed AND have money. And these are two different aims. At present, we are working on getting rid of depression and building up Happiness.
There is been lots of studies of poor countries where the people are very happy. More so than in the rich countries. These studies show different areas of life, rather than wealth, which can produce much happiness.These people do not get depressed about their poverty. You can use these areas to make improvements in your mental health BUT money, used the right way, can also bring lots of Happiness.
You must always be working on ways of building up the amount of Happiness in your life AND the amount of money in your bank account.

Children And Happiness 

Metro: And ‘emotional health’ in childhood is singled out as the most important factor in adult wellbeing.‘It has a major influence on children’s subsequent success – their relationships, physical health

I take it that by this they are talking about children having  ‘a happy childhood’. If you consider yourself one of The Happy People, and I cannot emphasise this enough, you have the sacred duty to make sure that EVERY child that you are hear of, know or are responsible for is protected from abuse, nurtured to full healthy development and is Happy. There must be no weakening on this. It is your full duty and fully affects your KARMIC balance more than anything I know of. A depressed child is a sin against nature. KARMA knows what you should do and what you fail to do. if you truly want to be one of The Happy People, don’t fail this duty.

Metro:  and whether they can get a good job,’ said Lord Layard. The Measuring National Wellbeing report was ordered by the government. New data will be collected each year and taken into account alongside traditional economic measures of prosperity.

They said this last year but I’ve seen no evidence, have you?

Metro: Lord Gus O’Donnell, of the Cabinet Office, said the new approach could ‘revolutionise’ policy-making – but work was needed to turn the report’s findings into practical ideas.

This blog has 300 articles. All full of good, practical ways to be Happier. Don’t wait for the government. Start to study the articles NOW!  LOL!

Back soon, Love,Peace and Happiness,
Tommy

Depression! The Alarming Truth!The number of people who are looking help because they are depressed is 7 times more than what what it was 40 years ago! Let me repeat that. For every victim of depression 40 years ago there are now 7. It is truly alarming!
What Is Depression?
It can effect people at different levels of intensity. It can be weak and short lasting or it can grind you down to feeling suicidal and last for years.
Think about this. A person can be told that they have terminal cancer. They often battle on right up to the end in spite of dreadful pain and suffering. Another can have an attack of depression and after a short time, commit suicide. This, to me, indicates that depression can be more serious in some cases than cancer. Lots of cases of cancer can be cured, suicide can not.
What Can You Do About It?
For our purpose and to keep it simple I am going to suggest describing depression as a lack of  Happiness. This gives you a way to approach it. When you depressed you are having bad feelings that have different levels of intensity and lasting. If you can start having happy feelings, those depressing feelings will be weakened. And if your happy feelings continue and get stronger, your depression will fade away. You may think that this is a bit too simple to deal with something that can be as serious as depression, and I wouldn’t blame you. It is only for the lower levels of depresion. And that means a lot of the people who suffer mild depression can benefit from this. If your depression is occasional and not too bad you are one of the peopel that can change your life around.  So what you must do is become a happy person.
What Is Happiness?
1) The amount of Happiness in your life can be divided into two areas.
A)Your present and your future. Nearly half of your Happiness in life comes from your attitudes and what you do in your daily life. This is mainly the people you mix with i.e spouses, the opposite sex, families and your community.
B) Your genetics and your past life.The rest it is down to your genetics and how you were brought up. And, of course, the unhappiness and depression in your life caused by these factors A) and B).  We, The Happy People, are always looking for ways to build up these areas of your life.
Here is the basic plan for beating depression. For area A), your present and future life, you must learn how to change your attitudes, how you mix with people and what you do so that your life becomes full of Happiness. And how to avoid the ways that people fall into unhappiness.  If B), your past life is a problem area, if you have had a particularly unhappy upbringing and life up until now, you must free yourself from any baggage that has built up. What you learned from parents and teachers may have puts lots of  unhelpful beliefs in your head or caused you unhappiness and to have bad memories. These have to be got rid of. Otherwise they can stop you from moving forward into a really happy lifestyle.
Two of the best ways  your pastto get rid of baggage from are:-
a) Meditation. This is very successful, but it must be the right kind of  meditation. Unfortunately, most of the popular types being taught are not suitable. All meditation is good, but this is a specialized area and needs a special approach.
b) Again a specialized, advanced NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) technique called Clearing Up Personal History.

This post is only an outline of some of the basics that The Happy People use.
