How To Be Happy | Science of Happiness

It has been scientifically proven (as much as science can measure immeasurable things) that happiness is one of those things where the quantity and frequency of positive events are more important than the quality and magnitude of those events (interesting, isn’t it?).

“We don’t remember days; we remember moments.” Mark Twain.

Numerous small, satisfying things can bring greater joy than one or two just-perfect moments. This is wonderful news because it means that embracing your loved ones, feeding birds at the window, and listening to music you love (small things) can surpass the impact of those one or two ‘big moments of happiness’ you eagerly await.

One of the longest psychological studies ever conducted took place at Harvard, focusing on happiness and satisfaction in people. How one can achieve happiness. From my experience working with clients, there are indeed only two ways for a person to attain lasting happiness: meaningful relationships with those we care about and achievements. Both of these paths to happiness align with the suggestions in this blog post. To foster good relationships and accomplish things, we can engage in numerous small daily actions—actions that bring us joy.

In conclusion, by engaging in good and genuine actions for yourself, you may discover that life and each day within it can be happier than that specific day you anticipate so much—pure, fantastic science!

The essence lies in the fact that each of us has an opportunity. Anything that keeps us away from that opportunity is nothing but excuses or self-sabotage preventing us from being happy—something worth exploring if we find ourselves engaging in it. Where does it stem from within us?

Try embracing many small moments of joy:

  • Cuddling a cat,
  • playing and conversing with a child,
  • making love,
  • kissing
  • achieving a small goal (15 minutes of exercise, for example),
  • dancing around the house,
  • chatting with your best friend,
  • having a glass of wine,
  • making someone else happy
  • (continue the list.)
