AEE 188: How to Be Happy Like Every Day is a Vacation

VacationCan you be happy every day?

If so, what does it take?

Today, we talk with Michael about what you can do to live every day like a vacation!

There are many ideas about how to achieve happiness.

Getting in touch with yourself, others, or higher powers is often suggested.

So is living a conscious life, being aware of your own thoughts and feelings so that you live in the moment.

But these are a little abstract.  Michael, an expert on happiness, has some concrete actions that you take to find more happiness every day.

 

Michael’s Tips for Happiness:

  • Practice Being Present.  Try doing nothing for at least ten minutes every day.  If you don’t want to meditate, get out into nature, or simply go for a walk.
  • Play Once a Day.  Don’t focus totally on work.  Allow your “inner child” to play, so you can avoid burnout.
  • Make an Integrity List.  Write out your thoughts, words and actions about what you want to do.  Then, see if they are in alignment and look for negatives.  For example, if you think about and want to do something, but don’t do it, that is negative.  Until you have alignment, you do not have integrity in this part of your life.
