I had to think about this one and I finally came up with something that I have been automatically been doing for years and that is showing respect to elders. I always hold doors for them, wait for them to cross the street, allow them in front of me in line at the grocery. We have quite a few elderly in our neighborhood and when we moved here it was kind of automatic to seek them out, befriend them and watch over them. If they need groceries and can't go, I go. When it snows we clear their driveways and sidewalks. It's always just been something I do so I think that qualifies as a happy habit !

MrsLMB, that is a wonderful happy habit to have. I look out for my next door neighbour, who is just 60 but has had a lot of health problems. I have given her my "right out front" parking space so she doesn't have to walk and can get her walker in easily....and I could use the short walk to our other space while TB parks in her spot underground - good for him, bad for her and I!

It is funny how you learn the pet names but not the people names!

My wife is a nurse & works 12+ hour shifts. Every morning she works I make her lunch and wake her up with a cup of coffee.

Wow, there are a lot of happy habits out there (well, maybe except for Shrek but we give allowances because he is an Ogre after all ). Keep them coming!
