Searching for the bird of happiness
Something to LOVE. It is no surprise that social relationships have been found to be a big contributor to happiness. We imagine that to mean having a romantic relationship, and yes, that is important. However, according to research, you get more joy spending longer periods of time with a close friend – just hanging out.
Something to LOOK FORWARD TO. Happy people make future plans to do things that they enjoy. There is nothing better than looking forward with anticipation to taking that special vacation, moving into a home of your dreams, or something as simple as flying a kite on a beach.
What would your life look like if it looked the way you wished? What would make you happy? Now is the time to take the initiative and do the work to make it so.
