Connect 2 Happiness - Reducing Stress & Increasing Joy

Thursday, January 10, 2013

If you're not signed up to receive emails from Sparkpeople for special offers, you may not have received this from for their Connect 2 Happiness for reducing stress and increasing joy.

I'm on a campaign to do both, so I signed up. The first exercise is to answer these 3 questions. So I thought I'd share them in my blog today.

Ask yourself these three questions, and listen closely to the answers.

1) What makes you happy?
I am happy to be home. Safe and warm. I know I am loved. Quality time with hubby.
Knowing my wonderful hubby is happy. He has a good job that provides for our needs until we can both retire.
We're making plans. (new Spyder, lots of rides, yard work, home improvements).
We're accomplishing things (organizing, painting).

2) What are you passionate about?
Making the most of each day.
Protecting our home life by keeping the stressors (family) as far away as possible.

3) How can you bring more of that into your life?
Doing frequent self-checks to my stress and fatigue levels.
Keeping communication free flowing between me and hubby.
Each of us have HOT buttons from past lives that are being identified
and dealt with in a healthy way so we don't contaminate our NEW lives with our past.


Make it a great day!

    Something about the word JOY that makes my heart sing. You have made great progress and have a wonderful attitude. I feel like I have my ducks in a row for reaching goals in my future. It's comforting to be aware of this though. I guess my weight loss goals are the ones that need most careful attention.
    Nice blog.

    All of my answers have to do with having more play time with my does that mean I can quit my job, take him out of school, and just play... play... play... emoticon
    Don't I wish, but I value education too much, work I school he goes...and my pride and joy WILL be come a productive self-supporting member of society emoticon

    Love your answers emoticon
