Your happiness, or MORE happiness, need not cost you anything!

Your happiness, or MORE happiness, need not cost you anything!

from my weekly eNewsletter …

What do you think will bring you happiness? 

…more money?
…a bigger house?
…a faster car?
…nicer clothes?
…more “stuff”?

When many people finish the sentence, “I’ll be happy when…?” they often think of the BIG things; and they often think of the EXPENSIVE things.

But more often than not, real happiness comes from small, day to day experiences, that are available to us all … AT NO COST (or a very minimal one)!

In fact, a recent study identified a range of factors people reported as contributing to the personal happiness. Here are the Top 5: 

  • spending time with family
  • watching movies
  • getting good sleep
  • taking time for yourself
  • listening to music and podcasts

Don’t, therefore, overestimate the difficulty or complexity of achieving happiness. It’s not always easy, and we shouldn’t expect to be happy all the time, but sometimes the simple things in life are the most important! 

…So that’s today’s mailing. Take some time to reflect upon the message and how it might apply to you. Check out, also, the links below for some additional readings and resources.

I hope it helps you enjoy some more happiness. Until next time…

Keep well & keep smiling
