My Happiness Project

Hello All,

Today, I would like to share with you all my jorney of this “Happiness Project” that I have taken up this year. This project is based on the book “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin. She started her journey to become happier and chose one aspect of her life each month for entire year. She listed down her commandments and adulthood secrets to help her in this journey. Two of the lines which she learnt and used is what I have taken up for now.

  1. “There is only Love” – In order to develop tolerance and compassion for everyone around me with diverse thinking and behaviours, I have chosen this as one of my commandments to help me feel good or at least neutral for all that exists around me and frustates me.
  2. “Fake it to feel it” – It has been long learnt lesson now to many of us that positive affirmations using I or I Am statements in present tense to send messages to our subconscious mind or brain and achieve whatever we want. I procrastinate a lot to check assessments and that frustates me later and also my managers! I have written down few statements that would help me to become better at this task. One of the statement is “I love checking assessments”

Apart from this I commit for the following aspects of my life to become happier:

  1. Physical Fitness – Do Yoga or exercise 20 minutes a day. Eat a little less and with all 5 senses.
  2. Mental Fitness – Do Pranayama, Recite my prayers and Meditate ( Total 60 Mins a day).
  3. School Work – Be a little more proactive and get work done a little faster with good quality.
  4. Professional Development – Learn about “Teaching and Learning” OR “Technical Skills” 20 minutes a day.
  5. Being there for family – Spend time meaningfully with or for family 45 minutes a day.

I am hopeful that I shall be able to keep my committment and be Happier.

Stay Blessed!
