Happiness is what we all want, right? To be happy and have harmony in our life. I never say “balance”. It makes me feel like it is always one thing or the other instead of my life melting together in harmony.
Valerie Burton is all about being “Unstuck and Unstoppable”. She has an AWESOME “Happiness Test” that asks a series of questions and at the end you find out what YOUR personal happiness triggers are.
You are thinking “I know what makes me happy”, right? Spending time with my kids, seeing family, my job, travel, friends, etc. I am sure the list goes on because for me I thought I knew too. The truth was that on the surface these are the things that make us happy but deep down what is the core “trigger” for that happiness.
There are two categories of happiness triggers – personal and power. The top Personal Triggers are the things that you should nurture, finding new ways to use them more often to boost your happiness level. These are the triggers that you are unique to your personality and lifestyle. Here are my top 3:
Key decision: “Every day, I do at least one thing to brighten someone else’s day.”
Service is a habit and genuine enjoyment of serving other people.
Key decision: “Every day, I make sure I have something to look forward to.” Anticipation is your ability to create a life that is filled with moments and opportunities to look forward to, and intentionally noticing what there is to look forward to on a daily basis.
Key decision: “Every day, I find a way to smile – especially on bad days.”
Simply stated, this is your expression of joy through a genuine smile and laughter.
What I found most interesting were my power triggers. The power triggers provide you with the greatest opportunity to boost your happiness level because these are the ones you use the least – and perhaps even neglect. YIKES! These are definitely things that I don’t do a lot of:
“I spend 30 minutes each day moving my body.”
Movement is exercising and getting your body moving on a regular basis.
“I sleep. I rest. I embrace what is.”
Relaxation is the habit of letting go, slowing down, taking breaks, and trusting that all things will work together for good.
Savoring “Every day, I enjoy a moment worth savoring.” Savoring is your ability to actively savor and appreciate positive experiences in your life.
The Happiness Trigger Test takes about 5 minutes, take it and share your results. It is time for you to focus on your power triggers so you can be unstoppable in all areas of our life!
