How to be Happier – The Spensieri Method
By Lori and Cara Spensier
I am a busy person. I can not complain about my business as I mainly do this to myself. Perhaps my business is a method of distraction. Of course, I have elements in my life that I can not avoid (and would not want to avoid). I have a full-time job as a Secondary Teacher. I have a family that I am actively involved with. My two boys, aged 5 and 8, both play hockey. One of them is in ‘Rep’ hockey. Combined, they have hockey eight times each week. Yes, I realize that this is impossible.
Besides all of this, I love to try other endeavors. I like to write poetry, post blogs, I run a series of Facebook Pages and multiple Groups. I love to interact with people, in any format. I do not expect to get rich quick, although I do imagine that one day I will be able to work less away-from-home and I want to work more from my home. My children come first. Being here at home, with them is my ideal picture of happiness.
This is key. To know what your idea of happiness looks like, is the most important thing to which you can dedicate time.
My sister Cara and I wrote a book entitled, Thirty Days to a Happy
This book is a program or plan that causes the reader to try new methods for increased happiness every day, for 30 days. The methods are all performance based. Each method asks the reader to do an action, try something new or create something. At the end of the day, the reader writes down, or voice records, a journal entry, called a Daily Download. This daily download will allow the happiness-seeker to better asses each method for effectiveness.
The first 5 days of the “Thirty Days to happy” are as follows:
Every person on Earth is different. Each individual is unique. From the outside, some people may look the same. Some people score identical IQ scores or similar Personality styles. This is all relevant but the truth is, each of the 7.6 billion people on Earth is each unique. It seems impossible. Click here (https://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2017/01/20/how-many-possible-combinations-of-dna-are-there/#22a6f2b15835) to see an article that looks at all of the genetic combination possibilities that exist. It truly is fascinating.
With that being said, each of us can find happiness, although in a different way. This may require some experimenting. This may require some trial and error. Never give up on finding the people and circumstances that will bring you feelings of happiness and joy. You deserve it and you can have it.
