Have you ever tapped into your happiness preferences? By this I mean the unique things that are personal to you that always make you feel good? Your happiness preferences are the things that when you do them, you experience positive emotions.
Most of us can remember the last time we did something for our friends or family that felt good. However, when was the last time you took time out to prioritize your happiness preferences and did something just for you? Can you remember the last time you consciously decided to do something to make yourself really happy?
What are your happiness preferences?
Your happiness preferences are unique and personal to you. They are often the things we enjoyed doing as a child such as reading, being outdoors, creating something or playing a musical instrument. It could be anything really – but you know it is your happiness preference as when you do it, you always feel good! ( and you float downstream!)
Why are your happiness preferences important?
When you take the time to do something for yourself, something which makes you happy, you are sending powerful messages out to the world and the universe. Energetically, you are saying:
- I care about my own happiness
- I want to feel good.
- I care about how I feel
- I like myself enough to do something nice for myself
- I am prioritizing my own needs and wants
We Forget what makes us Happy
Sadly, the truth is that many of us have pushed our happiness preferences to the side. Although we may remember what makes us feel good, rarely do we take time out to actually recreate these feeling to take time for them in our busy lives. We don’t actually make our own happiness an important priority.
Remember, life is like a photocopier or a mirror, so when you start sending out these positive vibrations, you will attract more of it in your life.
Write a list of your Happiness Preferences and commit to doing something from your list as least once a day.
