Be happier by embracing kid stuff: While 2020 takes it to us, there’s a quick escape you can take: embrace kid stuff. Sound crazy? “Life Hacker” columnist Tahsin Hyder tried it and swears by the practice. She took a page from her toddler daughter and laughed at herself, said “hi” to anything that moved, played games, ate kid cereal, jumped in a ball pit, and even threw a tantrum. Hyder says, thanks to her kiddo, she learned to practice being joyful again.
