Happiness

Week 1.

Introduction to happiness.

What is happiness for me?
Happiness to me means being able to achieve a self satisfaction in our every day life. Modifying things to suit our mood and benefit our well-being. This can be achieved by doing things we enjoy. In my case, I love reading, writing, singing, dancing and being with my family and friends. Those are things that if I have more of in my every day routine would improve my happiness.

However, things like stress, work, anxiety, fatigue, get in the way of achieving these simple tasks.

I feel in order for me to be happier, I have to become more organised, find time to do the things that I enjoy more. Find time to spend with people I love and start to embrace a little bit of goodness in everything that I do instead of focusing on the  negatives.

“happiness, more than anything, is a state of mind, a way of perceiving and approaching ourselves and the world in which we reside.”
