Managing Happiness

managing happiness scienceIf you’re in pain (physical, financial, emotional), how do you deal with it? When you’re having an unhappy day, what process do you initiate to find happiness?

Finding happiness in pain

A certain mindset is necessary to manage the daily fluctuations of happiness & pain. Being a survivor of chronic pain (arthritis in 13 joints all over my body, including toes), I am very experienced at managing it. My #1 rule: focus on the happiness in your life to get through the pain.

This page is an attempt to share with you, fellow humans, my process of finding & managing happiness. If it benefits you in any way (puts a smile on your face, inspires or motivates, etc.) please leave a comment below, it’ll lessen my pain. Thank you for reading, this is my 4-step protocol for Managing Happiness:

  1. Quantify your happiness
  2. Find inspiration
  3. Start looking for happiness – easy or not-so-easy ways
  4. Still struggling? Use science to find happiness
