"To become happier, healthier or wealthier in the new year, mental health, fitness and financial experts recommend establishing simple goals and developing sustainable methods to achieve them. .... 'It’s not a bad thing to pick a life that works for you,' said Dr. Diana Wertz, a San Mateo-based psychiatrist who focuses on therapy. 

.... 'Lay aside comparisons, that causes a lot of unhappiness.' To help identify what really matters, Wertz suggested spending a few minutes analyzing the gamut of emotions experienced throughout the day. 'Is there something you can learn about sadness or anxiety? Sit with it,' she said.

....  Dr. Robert Williams, a clinical psychologist who practices in San Mateo, agreed there is critical value found in deep thought. Williams, who is also an associate professor in the counseling department at San Francisco State University, said meditation or prayer are among his keys to wellness. 'Finding five minutes in the morning to tune the instrument and be present with your own self is important,' he said. ... 'It is a lifelong aspiration,' he said.

Kalvin Sid, an independent financial advisor in San Mateo, agreed simplicity is integral toward wise asset management.  'Live with an attitude of gratitude for what you have and learn to be content instead of desiring more stuff,' he said."  Read article.
