Important question - because the answer is the key to a life with much less anxiety. A life where depression doesn’t count.
It’s easy to busy ourselves with big questions like ‘what makes me happy?’. Trouble is, we rarely know the answer.
A nice car?
It doesn’t take long before these things don’t count for much. The short-term fix of happiness they produce soon runs out.
Instead, a better, more focused question to ask yourself is ‘why do I do what I do?’. If you allow yourself to stop and think about the answer it will lead to the things that create true happiness.
True happiness comes with a lot less anxiety and stress, and depression will never make the equation.
