Maybe you have already learned that your beliefs affect your emotional experiences and you identified a few behaviors that you currently engage in to increase the experience of your most valued emotions. In this activity, you are going to work on behaviors that affect your emotions.
Your entire life is made up of different behaviors and activities that you engage in. All of these behaviors affect your happiness. Some increase it; some decrease it. So, the more you prioritize engaging in activities that increase life purpose, meaning, and well-being, the happier you are likely to be.
Activity: Prioritizing positivity
For this next activity, create a big list of things that you enjoy doing. Try to be as specific as possible. For example, instead of saying you want to bake, be specific. Maybe you want to bake cookies for your family.
Create your own Pinterest board to keep track of all the things you enjoy doing.
Remember, everyone is different, so try to think hard about what you personally enjoy doing with your time. If you don’t like to paint, or swim, or go for a run, then don’t put these items on your list.
