The 100 Simple Secrets of Happy People by David Niven is a short read. The book is written in such a way that reading the chapter titles is enough. Each chapter covers one concept about how to be happy, followed by an example and a quote.
Among the 100 simple secrets, a few secrets that stuck with me are:
1. Have a purpose in your life
2. Have a hobby and also engage with people who share the same hobby
3. Have a community of friends and family and help each other out
4. Strive for progress, not for perfection
5. Volunteer and exercise
For this new year, which of the above secrets will you make a resolution? For me, it will be exercise ;)
