Raising Your Happiness Quotient

Happiness Quotient

How high is your happiness quotient? Rate your level of happiness by assessing your feelings. How have you felt this past day? Have you felt amused, silly, and fun-loving? Have you experienced awe, wonder, or amazement? Have you been grateful, appreciative, and thankful? Give yourself a score for each positive attribute, with 0 being not at all, 1, a little bit, 2, moderately, 3. quite a bit, and 4 extremely.

Now take a look at some negative feelings: How do you rate on feeling angry? What is your score on shame, disgraced, or humiliated? Have you felt disgust or revulsion?

Let’s take a look at some ways to raise your happiness quotient:

  1. Take some time each day to write down your goals and aspirations. What do you want to manifest in your life. What would make you feel happy? What would make you feel fulfilled?
  2. Write out and study your gratitude list each day. Start you day by thinking about every blessing that you have in your life.
  3. Plan on having fun each day. Schedule it into your calendar. Have a laughter segment. Watch a funny video. Take part in a humorous conversation. Raise your happiness quotient by being the bearer of good news and good cheer.
  4. Smile. Smile. Smile. Spread that smile everywhere you go.
  5. Do random acts of kindness. Comfort someone who needs consoling. Pay for someone’s meal. Look for ways to be supportive. This will increase your happiness quotient.
  6. Find every opportunity to laugh and be pleasant .
  7. Create an atmosphere of serenity. Set  aside time daily for prayer and meditation.
  8. Find reasons to be and feel inspired.
  9. Make an effort to build your confidence and pride.
