“There is no way to happiness; happiness is the way.” ~Buddha
On this Frequently Asked Friday we tackle the massive idea of happiness once again.
In season 4 we addressed the topic “How Can I Be Happy?” toward people fighting through depression and sadness. Today, however, we explore the question, “What Are the Keys to Happiness?”
A paradigm-shifting concept is simply to choose happiness. The idea of happiness as a choice goes back thousands of years, and yet too many of us expect perfect circumstances to bring us happiness.
To achieve happiness, your basic circumstantial needs (food, shelter) must be met. Taking care of our bodies is vital, as our energy relies on health and wellness.
Optimizing your environment influences your happiness. Surround yourself with positivity to set yourself up for success at choosing happiness.
Importantly, goal achievement via habit tracking—along with the right mindset—is a critical element of happiness.
Listen in for more on about making happiness a choice, setting yourself up for happiness by controlling your environment, and how gratitude is necessary to create and cultivate the happiness habit.
