How frequently do you actually have sustained feelings of happiness, joy, gratitude or love? They come and go, but you don't feel them all the time. What if you could?
You have work to do, projects that require your attention, people in your life to care for, not to mention all the other stuff that chews up your time: grocery shopping, driving, paying bills, exercising, food preparation, cleaning, the list goes on!
We spend so much of our time doing things interspersed with moments of happiness. Have you ever stopped to take note of what you default setting feels like? I challenge you to begin to pay attention to how you feel while you're doing all the things that are required of you.
When I first did this I noticed that I wasn't unhappy but I certainly wasn't bubbling with joy either.
How would your life be different if happiness was your default setting? (yes, even when you're working?!) I'm talking about bringing joy with you into your life rather than expecting life to make you feel joy.
Here's my three steps to make happiness your default setting so that you can bring it with you and spread it around everywhere you go.
