A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment

Defining and Incorporating Happiness

Step 1 of 2

  • Hello and welcome to the first happiness exercise. I am really happy to see you here. This exercise consists of two steps. But before we get to these steps, here’s some additional information about the exercise.


    To prioritise (not pursue) happiness, it is very important to gain clarity on what happiness means to you. It is also important to find out what things (stimuli, activities) make you happy in the way you define it.


    This exercise will help you:
    (1) gain a sharper, more concrete understanding of what happiness means to you, and
    (2) identify the things (stimuli, activities) that lead you to experience the state you equate with happiness.
