Are you just like me? Do you find all of the writing about happiness rrequires you to do some kind of contrivance, and thus would likely feel kind of like a phony happiness or forced happiness? I don't know if I could really sit around each night with a gratitude journal, and really, genuinely feel more gratitude for my life. When I read this stuff, sometimes I wonder if the writer of the book or article has actually worked with the subject matter for his/her own life and seen benefits. Most of it seems theoretical, and maybe even not proven.
What do you think? Have you had good luck increasing your happiness as a result of reading and following these writings?
