Have you ever sat down and given some thought as to when you last felt happy?

What were you doing?

For most people, when asked what makes them happy they don’t know.

They’ve become so bogged down with “life”, they’ve lost track of the most important thing: Happiness.

A small practice of intentionally doing something that makes you happy every day can have a huge impact on your life.

Below I’ve listed a set of Life Coaching questions I ask my Clients to help them try to identify the small things they can do to make them happy:

Here you go:

  1. Think of a time when you were last happy.
  2. What were you doing?
  3. Who were you with?
  4. When did you last laugh at loud?
  5. What were you doing?
  6. Who were you with?
  7. What is going to make you feel good?
  8. Who makes you feel good?
  9. What do you need to do to get it?
  10. When did you last feel satisfied?
  11. What were you doing?
  12. What did you enjoy doing as a child?
  13. What do you enjoy doing now?
  14. What do you like to research on the internet?
  15. What was the last thing you really looked forward too?
  16. Why were you looking forward to it?
  17. What relaxes you?
  18. Think of indulgent things you like to do but rarely do.
  19. What’s does your ideal day look like?
  20. What does your ideal evening look like?
  21. What does your ideal weekend look like?

Now, take the answers to the 21 questions and analyse them.

Analyse them properly.

Write a list of the small things you can do every single day to bring yourself happiness.

For example, can you allocate 30 minutes a couple of evenings a week for a bath?

Can you dig out your favourite body lotion and use it a couple of times a week?

Can you commit to 10 minutes of meditation a day?

Can you commit to 7 a minute workout APP a day?

Write a list and then intentionally commit to doing something that makes you happy at least once every day

If it helps, here is a sample (my list is really long) of the small things that bring me happiness every day:

  1. Rugby tackling my husband.
  2. Playing with my niece.
  3. Wearing Chanel No 5.
  4. Spending time with my mum, dad and sister.
  5. Spending time with my friends.
  6. Watching Carry On films.
  7. Watching Poirot.
  8. Watching Miss Marple.
  9. Watching Harry Potter
  10. Going to the cinema on my own.
  11. Having a tidy house.
  12. Watching box set.
  13. Helping someone.
  14. Going to bed really really early to read.
  15. Having a blank diary.
  16. Drinking nice coffee

Every day, I try to ensure that I do something indulgent for me. Something that makes me happy.

Try it.
