We spoke with Gabby Bernstein, author of the new book Miracles Now, for life lessons on beating stress, eliminating fear, and feeling more joy. Not surprisingly, you also become a more positive and happy person.

Follow these 10 steps—an easy acronym, GREAT DREAM—to sprinkle some happy into your life and the lives of others. So each moment of every day is an opportunity to turn your thinking around, thereby helping or hindering your ability to think and feel more positively in the very next moment.
Living a good life could mean different things to different people. On the weekend, escape to nature or a place where you can feel peace in time for a fresh start to the work week.

The job, relationship, or whatever we are envisioning and desiring for our lives is all on its way—and when we surrender our plans for the timeline and the form in which we think it should arrive, we allow an even bigger and better outcome to take place.
I have an amazing family that I look forward to coming home to every night, a job that is meaningful and provides balance, and a burgeoning small business that excites me. Though, I still have my struggles and doubts, on the whole I am proud to say that I live a happy life and that it didn't happen by accident.
