Have you ever wondered how to be happy? You meet someone who seems to have it all together and they are bursting with life. Then you wonder "is it fake, who is really THAT happy"?
If you are like me, you have often thought long and hard about life: where you were, where you're at now, and where you want to be. And often, you feel "stuck" and you just don't know how to move. Sometimes we think more money, a promotion, or toxic relationships are the key to happiness. We have all experienced some part of that - did it make you happy? For me: NOOOOOO! In fact, my current state of happiness is a real work in progress.
Activities which are pleasurable, engaging and meaningful are scientifically proven to make us happy.
Pleasure + Engagement + Meaning = Recipe for Happiness!
1. Pleasure: An activity that fills your soul with positive emotions: playing football with friends, going to a concert with your family, or even being intimate with loved ones.
2. Engagement: ‘Zoning Out’ – Everything around you comes to a standstill because you are so immersed and focused on a specific activity.
3. Meaning: Using your energy to create a service of value which is greater than yourself. You feel that you are a part of something grand. Something so valuable, that will continue to grow and prosper after you die.
The recipe for happiness is simple. It’s about realizing what matters in your own life, identifying the values you hold dear to yourself while focusing on something that could create love and harmony to the world.
