Aristotle

Cultivating Happiness – 7 steps to a happier life

To start off cultivating your happier life, you must start by asking yourself:

How do I define happiness?

What does happiness look like to me? What does it feel like?

Happiness is an individual thing. We all have different definitions of happiness, but if we don’t know what brings us happiness, how can we get there? I have my clients write a list of 5-10 things that bring them happiness. The list is for you only.

Can I be a negative number? You can be any place you truly feel you are. Don’t judge it. Use it as a starting point and work your way up.
