Want to be Happier? Try This Today

Looking for a happiness boost? I just had to share this video. First, watch. Then let’s talk about how we can apply this to our own relationships.

Isn’t that beautiful?

Being grateful for things we already have is free. But it’s something we often forget to do in our everyday lives.

If you could do with a happiness boost and you also want to connect with your partner, I suggest writing down all the things about them you’re grateful for. After all, I can only assume if you’re with this person that they have influenced your life in a huge way. Write it down, and then read it aloud to them, just like the participants did in this video.

Boom! Instant happiness and, I’m willing to bet, a huge smile from your partner as well.

We do these things only on occasion for reflection – usually speeches at weddings or birthdays in front of our families and friends, perhaps in a Valentine or anniversary card… but reading it to them out loud is the key to this experiment working. Do it! See what happens. It could be magical.

    I bought this wonderful book from http://www.thehappystreet.com/e-book which certainly will complement what you have written. The e-book talks about the importance of personality profiling in helping to understand a partner in a relationship and how to handle the profile identified to be successful in a relationship and partnership. Try it. The e-book is titled “The Relationship Success Guide for Couples: Secret Is In The Personality Decoding System”.

    It’s a positive sign to both partners that their good actions are being acknowledged. A true happiness boost to the relationship indeed.
    Thanks for sharing this Emma.

    Tobias sorta scares me .. I would datienfly go for Uriah because now that he’s lost Marlene and Lynn, I think he needs a girlfriend to help him move on and live again .. I’m so psyched for the next book!
