Happy ‘Happiness Happens’ Month!! Yes, August is the time to notice, discuss, and promote your happiness, and help others do the same. While Filipinos may be regarded as one of the happiest people in the world, there are still a few things they could work on. So here goes.

A less stressful life. The single most important key to longevity, as George Burns said, is avoiding worry, stress and tension. Metro Manila has a way of exacerbating worry, stress, and tension with its poor urban planning, chaotic transport services, suffocating pollution on top of a hectic, stressful job, a frenzied home life, and bills to worry about.

Now, your life will probably never be stress-free — I don’t think that’s even desirable, even if it is possible, because stress is something that challenges us and helps us grow. But let’s keep it to reasonable levels.

The best solution, I wager, is to move south, right in South Forbes Golf City, the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor. In this master-planned community, living is made easier with the 5 Clusters of Excellence – an internationally-themed Residential Cluster in synergy with the Education, Business, Wellness and Leisure Clusters. Essentially, all aspects of living are just a convenient walking distance from home.

Be happy! Move in right here, right now. Call 635-7777 or 631-8855 for a free city tour or log on to www.southforbes.com for more information.
