A mantra for 2014 (and beyond)

Here’s my formula for happiness this year. It’s pretty simple. Heck, make this my mantra for life overall.

Words to live by. A mantra for the year ahead


Eat real food.

Exercise once in a while.

Sleep as much as you need to.

Earn more than you spend.

Save as much as you can.

Be honest with yourself, and with others.

Make time for your loved ones.

These basic principles aside, you can do whatever you want.

You don’t have to start your own business.

You don’t have to be a corporate cog.

You don’t have to give up sugar, or gluten, or meat.

You don’t have to train for a marathon.

You don’t have to quit your job and travel the world.

You don’t have to avoid all the tourist spots, or stick only to tourist spots.

You don’t have to say yes if you don’t want to.

This year, make your happiness a priority. Never apologise for it. Just be you. Loudly, quietly, colourfully, unashamedly, grumpily, you.ย
