Notice What Makes You Happy

September 19th, 2016 · No Comments

This article is in our series about increasing happiness and life satisfaction.  Many people with chronic pain can’t decrease their pain.  So another way to live a more enjoyable and fulfilling life – perhaps even more important – is to increase the positive.  That’s what we’ll be looking at in this series.

Based on your own life, what you think the things are that go into a happy life.  Initially you might have said travel around the world and lots of chocolate.  Or winning the lottery and marrying a gorgeous partner.  Or perhaps you might think you have to avoid everything that’s negative – have no pain or stress.  Nope.

For a week, pay attention each day to what makes you happiest.  You can also take this Emotions Questionnaire to score your happiness (you will have to register at the site).
