Ep 8 12 intentional activities to increase happiness

Uncategorized Nov 29, 2019

Did you know that 40% of your happiness is dependent on what you think, feel and do?

Sonja Lub-mor-isky explains in her book “The How of Happiness” that there are 12 INTENTIONAL activities that have been shown to increase life satisfaction. 

They are: 

  1. Express Gratitude
  2. Savor life
  3. Nurture Relationships
  4. Set and meet goals
  5. Practice kindness
  6. Practice Optimistic Thinking
  7. Avoid social comparison
  8. Forgiveness
  9. Increase Flow and engagement
  10. Create strategies for coping
  11. Practice Spirituality
  12. Take care of the Mind and Body

While it would be too cumbersome to tackle all 12 right away, just start by being aware of those 12 intentional activities and how they fit into your life. 

Which one is the hardest for you to imagine doing well? 

Which activity do you do out of guilt? Which activity would you do more of just because you enjoy it?

Happiness can only come after self- awareness begins.

It’s TIME to start taking notice of what you are doing, thinking and feeling… and how often it is more negative than positive.
