A prescription for your happiness Rx: Learn something new! For sure, mastering a fun new skill (such as drying flowers and turning them into wreaths and arrangements, learning to knit/crochet, and creating stained glass items such as lamps) is challenging in the beginning. Even if you don’t get things right at first, trying gives you a confidence boost as you improve. According to the Journal of Happiness Studies, this boost in confidence makes you happier even months later. We can brighten our days with free and easy tutorials that teach us how to make dried flower arrangements– att Save-on-Crafts.com/driedflowarb.html

Or making something creative in stained glass at Creativity-In-Glass.com/cathedralstainedglass.html – making a lamp shade is a bit ambitious unless it becomes a seasonal project.
A bit of advice though, do not set out to learn cake decorating. A friend of mine gained fifteen pounds in six months doing this last winter!
