  • Family Pet chores. “We have committed to taking care of our pet. He is part of our family.”  Feeding cat, giving dog water, sweeping up messes with small hand brush and dustpan, leading a walk with pet [mom might need to hold the leash too]!
  • Clothes. “We all wear clothes in our family. We need to keep them clean and in order.” Putting clothes into the dryer [mom takes them from the washer and hands them to child], sorting socks on mom and dad’s bed, putting socks into the sock drawer, putting child’s dirty clothes into the hamper [cleaning up after himself].
  • Meals. “There is a lot of work to be done in order to put a meal on the table. I can help.” Put forks and napkins at table [one for each person in the family], wiping off table before or after dinner [use a wet wash cloth], sweeping crumbs up with the little broom and dustpan, putting recyclables in the proper bin, stirring, slicing [with help], kneading, recording your füdoo Board magnets for the family’s meal.

Ways to Boost Your Happiness

kmov.com gives these hints:

Start by changing your attitude.

That’s right — I’m talking to you, pessimists.

A Harvard University study found that optimists are not only happier but are 50% less likely to have heart disease, a heart attack or a stroke. It turns out that keeping a positive outlook actually offers protection against cardiovascular disease.

The science doesn’t fare as well for pessimists. They have lower levels of happiness compared with optimists and are three times as likely to develop health problems as they age, researchers say.

Learn from people who are already happy.

Denmark has earned the top spot on the European Commission’s “Eurobarameter” for well-being and happiness every year since 1973. And when the United Nations went on the hunt for the happiest nation in the world, it ranked Denmark No. 1.

So what makes Danes more satisfied with their lives? Sure, things like life expectancy, gross domestic product and a low-corruption rate help. But the overall level of happiness in Denmark has more to do with the generosity that’s common among citizens, their freedom to make life choices and a strong social support system, according to the U.N. World Happiness Report.
