Happiness is your birthright, yet it often seems difficult to maintain. There are an overwhelming amount of stressors in today’s world: demanding jobs, time consuming commutes, and less quality time with family and friends. It’s difficult not to get caught up in a cycle of depression.

According to the CDC, more than 1 in 20 Americans age 12 and older suffer from depression. That’s a lot of people, and to be depressed at such a young age is telling.

Regardless of what’s going on in your life, and regardless of how old you are, here are 5 practical tips you can apply right now to live a happy, healthy life, regardless of your circumstances or physical limitations.

1. Smile at people genuinely

Just smiling can make you and others feel good. Feeling good is contagious!

2. Handle your social incompletions

An incompletion is something in our world that’s been left unfinished or unresolved. Examples of incompletions include forgotten promises, undelivered contracts, excessive debt, and even arguments we’ve walked away from without resolving.

There’s something to be said for premium channels. Though regular cable television is filled to the brim with awesome, addictive shows, there’s always something special about shows that air exclusively on premium channels.

It’s for a good reason, too. If you think about it, the quality of shows should be higher since you are paying a premium to watch them, right?

But it can be difficult to make your way through the fuss and hype of certain tv shows to find the ones that are truly worth watching. Although everyone and their moms seem to know about the most common answers -- Game of Thrones, for example -- there are plenty of shows on premium channels that are severely underrated.

If you are on the hunt for something to binge watch and become addicted to, look no further. We’ve rounded up six of our favorite television shows on premium channels and we are going to tell you everything that you need to know about them.

You know that credit card debt is bad, for a number of financial reasons. The average United States household’s credit card debt is $16,061—and at an average APR of 15 percent, that means the average household is paying $2,400 annually in interest alone. The power of compound interest makes that figure exponentially worse for some families, and the resulting necessity of minimum monthly payments can get in the way of your plans to buy a house, take a vacation, or even make it to your next paycheck.

Unfortunately, credit card debt is even worse when you consider how much it affects your personal life—beyond the basic financial repercussions.

How Credit Card Debt Affects Your Personal Life

So how can credit card debt affect your personal life?

1. Your social life. Credit card debt can make it harder to socialize with your friends, to some extent. Your best friends won’t care about money—they’ll be happy to spend time with you at home, without paying for anything—but at the same time, it’s also fun to go out to have food or grab a drink, and struggling with debt can make it hard to keep up with even occasional indulgences.

For a girl, one of the most beautiful relationships is the one that she has with her brother or her bhaiya. And, if the brother is married, the bond is further extended to sister-in-law or bhabhi!

A bond that is bestowed upon by birth and carried for life, and keeps the love alive between a brother and a sister. The small fights, the leg pulling, the snatching of chocolates in childhood are replaced by utmost caring and sharing in youth. With brother's marriage, as the new member comes into the picture, sister is even more delighted to have a friend and a sister, in one single person.

Though the fondness in such relationships is natural, yet, there are a few things which bring supreme joy and strengthen the connection for life. A few deliberate love-filled actions can also work to resolve any conflicts if there are any.

If you are a sister, it is also upon you to make efforts and try to strengthen your relationship with your bhaiya and bhabhi.

Bless Them with All Your Heart

While you might already be doing that, make sure you give words to your blessings and let them have a joyous experience. A good idea would be to buy a beautiful bhaiya-bhabhi card and write down your emotions and blessings and send it across. You can hand it over personally if you stay with them. This little gesture is definitely going to touch their hearts.
