Hunt for Happiness Week

Hunt for Happiness Week

It’s Hunt for Happiness Week, and it’s the perfect time of year to find what makes you happy and figure out how to prioritize it in the new year.

If you’re not eating healthy meals or getting enough sleep, you may not be ready to focus on what makes you happy. Start with the basics that give you the foundation you’ll need for happiness.

Start with the Basics for Happiness

 

Think about what you want to focus on and what makes you happy in 2019 by making a vision board on your Pinterest.

Making Your Happiness Vision Board

 

Don’t treat the blues with something you’ll feel guilty about later. Skip the fast food burger and instead go for a hike, sing along to your favorite album, or cuddle your pet.

Create a happy space in your home. Use colors and artwork you love, your favorite candle and music, a cozy throw or sweater, and a favorite activity. Spend time in it daily.

Happy Space in Your Home

 

What made you happiest as a child? Pick up a puzzle, adult coloring book, or your baseball glove and relive your happiest childhood activities.

Relive Childhood Happiness

 

Appreciate the everyday moments of happiness in your life, whether that’s your morning coffee, time playing with your kids, or watching TV with your loved ones at night.

Appreciate the Small Happy Moments

 

Research shows that giving can make you happier and more grateful. Find a cause you believe in and volunteer or join a charity 5k with friends.

Giving Is Good for Happiness
