Here's the executive summary:

* Ask "What am I grateful for?" No answers? Doesn't matter. Just searching helps.
* Label those negative emotions. Give it a name and your brain isn't so bothered by it.
* Decide. Go for "good enough" instead of 'best decision ever made on Earth."
* Hugs, hugs, hugs. Don't text — touch.
 
Getting five hugs/day for 4 weeks increases happiness big time. Who knew? Plus other rituals to cultivate happiness

A mother bathing her young child in the #amazon river near #Iquitos #peru.

This was taken with my new #a6300 using the 18-200mm lens. This proved to be an excellent travel setup -- light and relatively compact with decent reach. It was the only lens I took on the trip to the Amazon, Machu Picchu and Galapagos. I ended up using the DMF mode quite a lot, as focus was sometimes slower and not quite as precise as I wanted, especially for close cropping.
