Happy or Unhappy?

Share This Post

James Clear is the bestselling author of Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones. This is an amazing book and I highly recommend it!

I get Clear’s email newsletter and this was too good not to share:

How to Be Unhappy:

-stay inside all day
-move as little as possible
-spend more than you earn
-take yourself (and life) too seriously
-look for reasons why things won’t work
-always consume, never contribute
-resent the lucky and successful
-never say hello first
-be unreliable

Invert for happiness:

-get outside each day
-move: walk, exercise, dance
-spend less than you earn
-view life as play
-be the one who looks for solutions
-develop a bias to contribute and create
-learn from the lucky and successful
-be the first to say hello
-be reliable

How are you doing with these? These are simple, practical things but big changes come in our lives as we do the positive small things over and over.

Would you consider a year end gift to our international ministry? My wife and I work with churches and leaders in several different countries. Your gifts are tax-deductible and will help us touch so many lives for God. Just click here to get involved. Thanks so much!
