What does it mean to be happy?
I read an article in Health magazine this AM on this topic. According to a survey the magazine conducted “people in their 20’s associated being happy with being excited about something. People in their 40’s associated being happy with being relaxed.” I associate being happy with being at peace. If I am relaxed, then I am happy. If I feel like everything is clicking and everything is in place, than i am happy. I am happy that I will have a “classroom” this year. I discovered last year that I need a space to call my own. A space that has windows and allows natural light in:) I need a space that I can go to throughout the day and reflect on what I am doing to be sure I am doing the right things for the kids. When things get stressful I need a space that I can go to and destress. This year I am going to try to make the most out of every day, and try to find happiness every day.
How do you define being happy? What are some things that make you happy?
