Someone once taught me a very important life lesson. They said, “always ensure you are doing more of what you like and less of what you don’t like.”
I think I’ll call this the Happy Balance.
When we are doing more of what we like and less of what we don’t like, we are likely to feel happy.
It might be helpful to regularly reflect on your life and assess 1) the quantity and 2) the weighting of the activities you are doing. You can consider small parts of your life (such as your job or how you spend your weekends) or you can reflect on your life in general.
