Harvesting Happiness: How to Find Happiness

  • By Lisa Cypers Kamen.

    You might be asking yourself, “How can I find happiness? What can I do right now to get the most happiness out of my life? Am I taking the time to enjoy the little, seemingly small moments in life that can bring me happiness?”

    We can look at each question and try to answer each one, but remember everyone has different feelings as to what makes them happy. It’s like your unique fingerprint- no two are alike!

    How can I find happiness? – You have to be open to looking for it in even the small things in your everyday life for one thing. What makes you happy may not be what makes someone else happy, but it’s okay. We are all unique and different.

    What can I do right now to get the most happiness out of my life? – It all begins now.

    • Look at the moments in your life now and enjoy them.
    • Remember too that it all starts with you and you can choose happiness.
    • Pay attention. Am I taking the time to enjoy the little, seemingly small moments in life that can bring me happiness?  Take the time to look for these and stop to enjoy them.
    • It also means that you slow down in your day-to-day activities.

    It’s really easy if you just take the time to think about it. I hope these questions and tips have helped you to start finding happiness in your life!
