practising a method I gleaned off somewhere...


I've been spending the past few weeks working my own Happiness Project after listening to a TED talk a few months ago. My bad, I have not been keeping tabs on the original talk so no video link as for now. It boils down to...

Getting myself to work better by practising one of these methods daily: being thankful of three things, and meditation (these are the two points I remember, there are four in total.)

I started off by being quite easy-going about it for the first month - doing a recount either in bed before falling asleep or first thing in the morning. A few weeks ago I started writing down my thankful items to track how my emotions and the way I see things change according to circumstances.

The past few weeks I have been doing the Happiness Project, I find that there may be tough days when all I could find are two things to be thankful of. There are also plenty of days where six or eight events to be thankful of are too few to summarise the gladness I experience. I am not sure if this is going to be a long term project, and probably the monitoring factors will be adjusted as time passes, although sure it is heartwarming to do such a project.

I did not do my Happiness Project because a birthday/event/deadline was approaching. I simply thought that if I wanted to harness my power of thought, maybe I could give this method a try and something good would come out of it.

Take care :)

It doesn't put me in a permanent state of euphoria.

It does help me notice good things happening to me, and by implication it makes my mind have a better handle on issues at hand because it is not so burdened with hormones triggered by having negative or depressing thoughts.

betul, ga serta merta langsung merasa happy terus ya. tapi memang membuat pikiran untuk terus berpikiran positif, yang biasanya sih membuat melakukan sesuatu jadi lebih enjoy,tanpa merasa depresi.
