The little things in life

Ever wondered what it is that one person does and another doesn't that makes the difference in their apparent wellbeing.  No one thing makes all people happy, no one action ensures everyone will be healthy. It is a collection of little things, matched to our individual needs and circumstances, that can make the difference in each of our lives.
