The secret of radiant health is

Happiness is a choice that we can make at any time.  As Swami Kriyananda says in “Affirmations for Self-Healing,” "Happiness is an attitude of mind, born of the simple determination to be happy under all outward circumstances.  Happiness lies not in things, nor in outward attainments.  It is the gold of our inner nature, buried beneath the mud of outward sense-cravings."

Affirm regularly this month: 
"I vow from today onwards to be happy under every circumstance.  I came from God's joy.  I AM joy!"

And repeat Swami's prayer that goes along with this affirmation:
"O Lord of Joy, fill me with boundless happiness.  For I am Thy child, made in Thy blissful image.  As Thou art Joy, so also, in my inner self, am I."

As you are affirming and praying, actively visualize these words in your mind's eye.  Adding visualization to affirmation greatly enhances the positive effect.
