Most Happy When __________

The following list is the result of a twenty minute exercise I did with myself one day. I set a timer and asked myself the to fill in the blank for the same phrase.

"I am most happy when _____________"

I did this exercise on a whim and it ended up being a finder and a reminder.

Recalling the happiness in life not only boosted mood and energy that day, it gave me a good insight to areas where I thrive.


Being in water and hammocks ended up on my list more than once. So did asking questions, writing, and making a difference in people's lives.


Fascinating.

The most common trends can be created through a phone call or getting out into nature.


Looking at this list, happiness might be easier to create than we think.


If we are willing to look.


And if we are willing to go get it.


Your Turn:


Set a timer for at least 10 minutes.

Set aside any thoughts around judgement.

Record it in a way that resonates with you whether that is audio, video, typing, or writing. Start by connecting to a time when you felt most happy and flow from scene to scene.

Allow the times in life when you were most happy come to the surface.


Then say to yourself,

"I am most happy when ____________"

and fill in the blank.


Do this as many times as you can in the time you set for yourself.

If you feel stuck, repeat the phrase, "I am most happy when ________". Keep going :) You got this. <3


When your timer goes off, take a deep breath.

Go back through your list.


What do you notice?

What pops up more than once?

Which ones stand out to you the most?

What are your top three trends?

Which ones surprised you the most?

Which ones had you forgotten even made you happy?

When you are feeling unhappy, what are three or more things on your list you can be or do that are easy to re-create?
