The Happiness Project (And Something About Mother's Day)

Today I was looking around my mom's room when I picked up a book called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. It's really for grown-ups but I find it really cool. It's about the author, who suddenly realizes that she's wasting her life away and needs to find a way to become happier. So she researches happiness and begins a happiness project for one year. The first part of the book is about "Boosting Your Energy" and how the author does it. Surprisingly, the first thing she did was go to sleep earlier! In a few weeks, the author actually felt the effects of sleeping earlier. She turned off all the lights when she went to bed, and spent the hour before going to bed cooling down and doing relaxing, calming things. If there were beeping, glowing things in the room, like alarm clocks and Blackberries and cellphones, she would hide them from view so that the room was very dark. These are some good tips if you want to get a happiness project started. Thanks, Gretchen Rubin!
Oh, and also...
