In all things, good or bad, difficult or easy, just don't lose your happiness...

  • 1. Identify what makes you happy

    Step 1 is simple, but not necessarily easy. Before you can find happiness each day, you first need to know what makes you happy.
    To do this, grab a sheet of paper or your journal and brainstorm everything that brings you joy, no matter how big or small. You'll want at least 10 things. Here are some examples:
    • Being active
    • Learning
    • Being outside
    • Eating a good meal
    • Meditating
    • Interesting conversation
  • 2. Identify what you do that doesn't make you happy

    It might seem ironic that you have to focus on what doesn't make you happy when our goal here is to find happiness in each day, but it's important. Why? Because you might spend a lot of time each day doing things that don't bring you joy.
    Sometimes these things are obligations, but not always - often they're habits that we don't even realize we're doing. The first step to making a change is awareness of what needs to be changed, so this is an exercise in becoming aware of how we don't want to spend our days.
    Examples might be:
    • Morning commute
    • Being around a certain someone that you don't like but can't get rid of
    • Being in the company of negative coworkers
  • 3. Every day, commit to doing at least one thing that makes you happy

    Now that you've identified what you want more of in your life, commit to it. Happiness is not a default, it's a skill you need to build. And the only way to do that is to commit to it and make it a priority.
    Emphasis on commit to one thing, but try to work up to three things that bring you joy every day. Don't say you're too busy. If you're too busy to be happy, you should really rethink how you're living your life.
     Really commit to this; Every morning, identify how you'll bring happiness into the day, and put it in your calendar. Make it non-negotiable.because you have one, short, precious life to live. You deserve to make it a good one.
  • 4. Every day, commit to changing one thing that doesn't make you happy

    Look at your list of things that don't make you happy. Is there one thing on your list you can try to eliminate, reduce, or change, just for today? You don't need to swear it off forever. Take one day at a time.
  • Happiness is a choice. And it's up to you to choose it, every single day.
