7 Tips – How To Be Miserable

9 Aug

Deja Vu…

Woe is me.

As relationship expert and best-selling author Margaret Paul, PhD. writes at HuffPost Healthy Living, “While life is often challenging, lonely and heartbreaking, misery is a choice.”


  • Wear Spanx underwear daily, preferably in a size too small.  (Guess what? It’s ALL a size too small.)
  • Read, listen to, or watch The News. This applies especially to anything remotely political.  (Ugh. It’s ALL political.)
  • Deprive yourself of chocolate before noon.  (Cocoa Puffs were created for a reason.)

  • Sit at the computer all day.  (ALL day? You may be suffering from FOMO addiction – or worse yet – you are writing a book.)
  • Sit at the computer all day and smoke, fume, or otherwise heat yourself up.  (This can cause spontaneous combustion – a very bad way to go.)
  •  Sweat the wee stuff – unless you’re referring to cancer cells or bedbugs.
  • Build sandcastles in the air.  (The foreclosure rate is astronomically high.)

Good news! Happiness is also a choice.

      Guess what? Spanx makes swimwear, too – beats waterboarding for torture.
