4. Relate: Happy people nurture relationships, even if that relationship is with oneself.

5. Catalog Your Goals and Dreams: By writing on a post-it note or by mentally reviewing your day, be sure to congratulate yourself on meeting all of the appointments and expectations you set forth and met for the day.
