Tips on How to Be Happy- from 1625

Tips on How to Be Happy- from 1625

I don’t know. I’m staring at Gretchen Rubin’s picture, and I swear, she doesn’t look to be much over 26 years old. So how, then, do you explain this? Gretchen has tips on how to be happy that were written — wait for it — in 1625. So either: a.) Gretchen uses some VERY powerful health remedies, or b.) she dug up something really great to share with us from her Happiness Project. I’m leaning towards A, but I’ve been wrong before.

Here’s a couple of quotes from a manuscript written by some guy named Frank Bacon:

It is a safer conclusion to say, This agreeth not well with me, therefore I will not continue it, than this, I find no offence of this, therefore I may use it.

Discern of the coming on of years, and think not to do the same things still.

Beware of sudden change in any great point of diet, and if necessity enforce it, fit the rest to it.

There’s plenty more where that came from, over at Gretchen’s site. Check out her photo while you’re there and make up your own mind. Is she really a well-kept 381 years old?
