    In sociology there was a study that determined happiness. The study showed that Five positive events to one negative is an optimal ratio to keep up. So here's a little game for people who feel bad.

    Let's try to have five good events a day.

    Any takers?

    Um... It's not going to work out for me... On a really, really good day I think I get about 1:5 good:bad

    Hmmm....looks like we have a lot to work on:D.

    Ok, how about tomorrow we each do 1 thing that will make us feel good. Sleep in, exercise (for crazy people that enjoy it :tongue:), buy a bit of ice cream or hot cocoa, etc.
