Happiness is ranked #1 on the list of what most people want in life.
By practicing Mindfulness, we can learn to increase our baseline of happiness over time.
Here are 3 ideas to help you upgrade happiness through a ‘positive emotions practice’.
- Notice life’s positive moments, take them in, let them linger and soak in them. And just as importantly, release them and let them go, gracefully.
- Savoring/soaking involves mindful awareness of the experience of pleasure, this means being aware that something good is happening while it is happening.
- The process of savoring greatly increases our happiness.
Recognize, acknowledge and be grateful for the good things in your life to allow more good things to come.
