A formal happiness plan-in addition to helping you live “with purpose”– also serves as a symbol that you have made happiness your priority.  No nonsense; that is what it takes to change the thoughts and behaviors that you want to change, in order be more content with each day you are gifted.

All you have to do is think of the many happy moments you have enjoyed throughout the years.  Think of all things past and present that brought (or bring) you satisfaction, joy, contentment, or pleasure. It’s not rocket science. When we revisit or reenact the circumstances that we know have made us happy, we enjoy more happiness. Think about how your life would change if you purposely re-engage with one or two of these happy thoughts , experiences, or actions each day. You will be surprised to discover how much  control you can have over your own mood and emotions.
