Lately, I’ve also been participating in a website trackyourhappiness.org. They send you random texts during the day, asking you what you’re doing, with whom, how you’re feeling, etc. After a while, they tally your responses.
Seems I’m happiest at the gym! Not surprising, according to the Wall Street Journal; click for an online “gratitude test!”:
Adults who frequently feel grateful have more energy, more optimism, more social connections and more happiness than those who do not, according to studies conducted over the past decade. They’re also less likely to be depressed, envious, greedy or alcoholics. They earn more money, sleep more soundly, exercise more regularly and have greater resistance to viral infections.
Merry Christmas! Be grateful!
