Gift #367

  • "I want to be happier. I just don’t know how." - This was one of the most shocking answer I got for my yesterday's question about ideas to be be happy. 
    Hence before we develop any new habits to be happy I would like you to take a sneak peek into the lives of the happiest people so that we can discover the research-based secrets about the quality of “happiness.” 1. Short term pleasures
    Feeling the rush of sensory pleasures, such as great food and wine, great sex, sports, entertainment, is terrific. The happiest people intentionally organize their lives so they have time to kick back and enjoy life.
    Enjoy those healthy fun pleasures, but understand that they alone will not result in sustainable happiness and contentment.
    2.. Flow
    The happiest people deliberately seek out engaging challenging experiences and they love achieving new levels of mastery and know how to fail too. The happiest people understand that gaining mastery requires resilience - to bounce back after a setback or failure, and eventually enjoy that great experience of flow.
    3. Meaning
    Meaning isn’t an abstract or general life principle. It’s a vibrant, deliberate frame of mind that recasts life’s inevitable difficulties into purposeful thought and action. Meaning makes people the happiest.
