The best way to be happy is to keep busy doing things we like. It can be anything from completing a project, exercising, reading, dinner with friends, watching TV or prayers.
Voltaire rightly said, “Not to be occupied and not to exist amount to the same thing. If you do not want to commit suicide, always have something to do.”
Being immersed in work is so joyful that we even tend to forget things. On many occasions, while working on reports I have left milk boiling on the stove or ignored my wife’s calls to pick up the phone.
There is a story about Issac Newton: He was once so busy, he forget to eat the food lying on the table. A friend arrived, saw Newton busy, gobbled the food and moved off. A hungry Newton later reached the table, saw an empty plate and laughed at himself saying, “I already had my food and still looking for it.”
And, relaxing after a hard day's labour..oooff..simply awesome.
Hey, I read an interesting joke on the Net. How to keep a fool busy? Write “Turn this card over" on both sides of a card and give it to him/her.
