7 Things That Make Me Happy

  1. My favourite books
  2. A chat with an old friend.
  3. Walking in light summer rain.
  4. Flowers
  5. A good cup of tea.
  6. Watching a fun movie.
  7. My favourite music.

Why do they make you feel happy?

All these are little things but they make me feel good about myself and about the world around me so I guess that is enough to make me happy.

Once you have done that, list just seven things that make you unhappy.

7 Things That Make Me Unhappy

  1. This terrible pandemic.
  2. the state of the environment
  3. criticism
  4. negative and toxic people
  5. jealousy and rivalry
  6. not having a good book to read
  7. badly made tea

 

Then when you have done that – explain this …. ‘How do YOU define happiness?’

My definition of happiness is not original but is very true :

“Happiness is not having what you want

But wanting what you have.”
