Summer Reading

Standard

Have you been checking out your children’s summer reading lists and preparing them with a variety of great books to read? Have you been sitting on a beach wishing you had something for yourself to read? Maybe, you have a lunch break to sit outside and eat with a good read? Well, please take a look at this!

Livehappy

This is livehappy! I received this as a birthday gift. Perfect for me, right? Sometimes I feel like my kids when they get obsessed with a toy or subject and that’s all they want for Christmas! I’ve been that way about this subject. I guess, I don’t have to tell you that. 🙂  Whether you love this subject like I do or you have a more typical interest, this magazine will keep you living happy!

I’m holding the June 2015 issue which has the Good Morning America Celebs on the cover. This issue shared GMA’s workplace well-being.  livehappy columns include Work, Home, Health, Mindset, and Self.  Many positive pictures, ideas, and quotes throughout inspire a positive mood. You will find in the June issue a Happiness Library (latest books on happiness), discussion of happiness in education (my all time favorite), pictures of Happiness Walls across North America (#happyacts), how happiness improves business, and heroes all around us.

This is one of my favorite articles that took place at Castle Hills Elementary School in Lewisville, Texas. If you look closely at the picture you will see “nearly 800 students and faculty braved the cold and rainy weather to spell out the word “Happy”. The school took time to learn about happiness and then took the #HappyActs challenge. Kindergartners all the way through fifth graders created a happiness wall featuring happy acts. The students participated in this to celebrate March 20th, the United Nations has chosen March 20th as International Day of Happiness!

About Tiffany

Hi, I am Tiffany and I am blogging about creating "Your Happy". Before having my own children, I happily taught 5th and 6th graders for several years. My first love in education was Psychology which I received a Bachelor of Arts. I then decided to pursue a Master in Education to become a classroom teacher. Having taught many students and then my own children, I became very interested in understanding why some children seem to have an easier time socially than others. I have been recently reading about Positive Psychology. I want to share the information that I have found very helpful in my own life. I am not an expert in happiness but only a new purposeful creator of my own happy. There is a balance to achieve for happiness that is being discussed and researched by psychologists. My intent is to introduce this new information so that you may use it to create "Your Happy". I also want to share "My Happy" because that is part of my balance towards happiness. Helping others has always been a passion of mine. Doing your passion is part of the balance towards being happy. It is so important to recognize that we are all responsible for creating our own happiness. The first concept I want to share is: if you are happy, success will follow. Unfortunately, the belief typically is: if you are successful, you will be happy. I am thankful to Wordpress.com for giving me a place to blog. I am also very grateful to those dedicated to doing the research in this area. I am looking forward to creating this blog and having a place to share "Our Happy".
