The 3 R’s of happiness

The 3 R’s of happiness

When I was growing up it was often said that there were three R's in education…

  • Reading

  • 'riting and 

  • 'rithmetic

Excusing the spelling and grammatical licence and assuming that education has probably changed a bit these days, I was thinking about a positive psychology version for 3 R's of happiness and came up with this…

  • relationships (because other people matter) 

  • reason (or purpose and meaning) and

  • resilience (because happiness isn't just enjoying the good times it's also getting through the tough times)

I also considered including rest, recreation, recuperation, realistic optimism and, well, what other R's would you include in your happiness? I'd love for you to share your thoughts and ideas on our Facebook page HERE
