You are a busy mom, I know how it is.  Down in the dumps? These super-quick tricks can have you beaming in no time (no prescription needed).

Your boss is piling on the work. Traffic is in gridlock mode. The kids won’t … stop … whining. And you? You could benefit from some sort of emotional pick-me-up right about now.

You’re in luck: Research shows that there are a number of simple things you can do to transform grumpiness into happiness (quickly).

“You can change habits, behavior, and attitudes one inch at a time. Just be persistent,” says Philip H. Friedman, PhD, a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in Plymouth Meeting, Pa., who is director of the Foundation for Well Being and an adjunct assistant professor at the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology.

Got a minute? Then hug your partner, check out some artwork, and give these other smile-inducers a shot.
