What Makes You Happy? Here’s How to Make Your Own Unique Happiness List

Do you know what makes you feel happy? It can be a scary question. Perhaps you’ve always accepted other people’s answers for what happiness should be like … even though these things never felt satisfying to you. You might have started believing you just aren’t a happy person. You might even get angry when someone asks you if you’re happy with your life, and your inner reaction is: "What’s so great about happiness anyway?" Wherever you are in this process, I’m going to recommend you create a list.

Make a list of…

  • things you want to do or experience
  • things you feel happy doing and experiencing
  • things your body and emotions say they need or enjoy
  • things you would like to gift yourself with

You also can make your list by responding to these prompts:

  • I feel happy when…
  • I feel most happy when I…
  • I feel most happy around…
  • I find myself laughing at…
  • I enjoy laughing with…
  • The one thing that makes my heart soar is…
  • The thing that makes me want to dance and cheer is…

This needs to be your list. Not your parents’ or your partner’s or even your kids’. Yours. What makes you happy? See where it takes you!
