Welcome to self-help season. You just received a slieu of beautiful new clothes, shoes and (hopefully) jewelry, and now it is time to whiten your teeth- because losing weight is for everyone else.

Last month you gave to others- didn’t it make you happy? Happy enough to not care that your glass of eggnog was 400 calories…

I want to suggest a different kind of giving this month. Not the kind that breaks the bank, but the kind that allows you to glow.

There is a body of research that shows that one of the best ways to feel good about yourself is to give to others.

Dale Carnegie’s Golden Rulebook, How to Win Friends & Influence People, reminds us to smile, listen and make others feel important- a year-round Christmas spirit.

The hardback copy is attractive enough to make the coffee table and it is on SALE at Overstock.

Don’t miss the opportunity to give happiness.
