One simple thing you can do to bring more joy and happiness in to your life!

Want to know the ONE THING you can do to bring more joy and excitement into you life?

…use anticipation!!!

Looking forward to things is good for you. Eagerly awaiting an upcoming positive event creates positive emotions such as happiness and joy. So why don’t we use this more to our advantage?

Well, we can. And it really is quite easy.

Every day, or at least once each week, plan at least one pleasurable activity or event. It doesn’t matter what it is; as long as YOU find it fun and enjoyable. It could be chatting to a friend, going out to dinner, watching a movie or seeing a live band.

At the same time, every month or two, also plan a bigger positive something. This could be a special dinner out at a fancy restaurant or some bigger splurge that you wouldn’t do on a daily or weekly basis.

And finally, at least once each year (or preferably, 2-3 times each year) plan a holiday or getaway. It could be an overseas trip but it could also be something easier and more affordable like a weekend camping.

Once again, it doesn’t really matter what these positive events are; but knowing that this week, this month, this quarter and/or this year you have things to look forward to does matter. And it matters in a very positive way!
