Is it eating well, exercise, the right job, the perfect body or partner? Several studies have shown cultures that thrive and rank high in longevity and happiness have several factors working in their favor. Food from the earth and physical activity are high on the list, but community, friends and family were at the top.Many of us think that we need to feel loved and cared for to be truly happy. While this is really important, the research seems to say it is more important that we love and care for others. It is when we get outside of ourselves and stop thinking so much about my life, my happiness we truly begin to reap health benefi ts. Those who focused on other </p><p>peoplefriends, family and co-workers stayed healthy and the effect was greatly increased if they volunteered and got involved in helping others. To put it simply...its not all about you.During this holiday season and in celebration of our giving issue, lets remember that what makes this a happy world is our connection and caring for each other. When we get outside of ourselves and think of others, we fi nd peace and perspective.So, dont sweat the small stuff. Love your family and your friends. Give a little of yourself to help another and your holidays will be happy and you will be on the path to a long and healthy life.</p><p>My Best ListTower Garden I dont own one of these, but have seen it in action.
