This week, from November 8th to the 14th, is Pursuit of Happiness Week! The pursuit of happiness is supposedly a fundamental human right, guaranteed by the founders of our government, but we rarely think about it: how exactly does one pursue happiness?
For some, happiness comes from expressing their creative side. Take out a pen and notebook and write, or grab some paints and a canvas if you're more artistic. Music often makes people happy, whether you play an instrument yourself or just go to a show. Some people feel great after exercising or playing their favorite sports. Whatever you do, don't stress out or give up. The idea behind pursuing happiness is to find what you enjoy doing and keep doing it. Experiment! You have a whole week!
And a surprisingly easy route to feeling happy? Smile. Your brain is easily fooled into releasing all sorts of nice joy-producing chemicals, and you may find that happiness is much closer than you think. Now, enjoy the rest of the week!
