As part of the research I did for my book, Move Your Assets: From the Chair, Not the Bank!, I found hundreds — maybe even thousands — of studies, research and articles that say “asset moving” is one of the ways to make you less stressed, happier and more kvetch-free (aka pain and ailment free!)Okay, okay, maybe “asset moving” wasn’t quite the wording I stumbled upon, but you know what I mean.
It’s called, “Why should I move my assets when they don’t want to move?”
Admit it, you’ve asked that very question, right?
One of my awesome clients shared a list she found called “12 things happy people do differently,” compiled by Sonja Lyubomirsky, research psychologist and professor of psychology, University of California.
Of course, you know what made it to the list!

Getting the Life You Want (Penguin)

Counting your blessings: Expressing gratitude for what you have (either privately through contemplation or journaling or to a close other) or conveying your appreciation to one or more individuals whom you’ve never properly thanked.
Learning to forgive: Keeping a journal or writing a letter in which you work on letting go of anger and resentment towards one or more individuals who have hurt or wronged you.
…and a drum roll, please, for #12…
Let’s vow to move our assets, be happier, and kvetch and jiggle less!
