Aren’t coincidences funny? In a planning meeting at work on Tuesday someone mentioned the documentary Happy, as a researcher from the university who studies Happiness (and wrote The How of Happiness) is featured in the film. Wouldn’t you know that not twenty minutes after that conversation, whilst munching on my lunch, I was reading a post on one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo (this post and this post) about the movie?
A happy coincidence, indeed. So, yes, let’s talk about happiness. For me it’s…
watching Baxter run in crazy fast circles in the grass.
cuddling on the couch.
getting lost in a good book.
eating every last crumb of my mom’s coffee cake.
singing in the car.
meals shared with great friends.
watching my dad laugh really hard.
time on the lake in Havasu.
and being married to Mumbles.
What makes you happy?
P.S. There’s also an iPhone App called Live Happy based on psychologist Dr. Sonja Lyubormirsky’s research that you can use to boost your happiness throughout the day.
