When that happens, as has happened to me recently due to my Mom getting very sick and having to go into the hospital after major surgery and then into rehab, I search for ways to get back, as fast as possible, to what brings me joy.

One of the things that brings me joy is color.

Another thing that brings me joy is writing.

Another thing that brings me joy is expressions of creativity in illustration, so I decided to combine my loves today and find illustrations about ways to live happy.

Just writing this post, reading the words on these illustrations and making these pretty, colorful collages to share with you has improved my own happiness quotient by 50% already today!

I hope looking at them and reading the words in them help you find ways to live happier today, too, no matter what you might be facing.

And, if you have a little more time, here are links to two posts I read that really helped me.

The first one is about what you can do to live happier, based on the neuroscience behind happiness. Please don’t miss reading this, I think you might find it really interesting, too, as the author shares why certain actions really can make you happier, based on what happens to your brain chemistry when you take those actions.

Please let me know in the comments how you get back to your center of happiness and balance when you’re having a rough stretch in your life, either here in the comments or over on:
