Doing This One Thing Will Make You Happier In Seconds

There’s no limit to happiness.

Even during those special moments where you think, “This is the happiest moment of my life,” you’re going to feel more satisfied at some point.

Most people experience those moments once in awhile. Maybe it’s a life milestone, like graduating college or getting engaged. Maybe it comes out of left field, like feeling a sense of deep gratitude while doing what you love.

If your happiness game is strong every day, please share your secret.

I haven’t cracked daily euphoric, soul-shaking happiness yet, but I can share this proven method of lifting your spirits in seconds.

To feel happier in moments, take a second to write down or visualize your biggest goals.

Even if it’s just quickly typing a note on your phone, putting it in words is the first step of committing to what you want.

Putting your goals front and center is a powerful habit. The seeds for this blog were planted in little notes in my phone months ago.

When you’re stressed, it will remind you why you’re working so hard in the first place.

When you struggle to get out of bed, it will motivate you to start the day.

When you feel lost, it will put you back on track.

Even if your goal is far off, like one day owning a house on a secluded beach or traveling the world by ship, just keeping it in the forefront of your mind brings it closer to reality. Not only will it put a smile on your face, thinking about your goals often increases the likelihood of you accomplishing them.

Here are a few of my goals. I’m writing them here because I know by putting them out there in the world, I have more reason to hold myself accountable to them.

  • Write a how-to guide for solo travel with help from the internet’s best female travel bloggers and turn it into an e-book
  • Make $500/month with side hustles
  • In the far future: take a year off work to snowboard all over the world

Not all of my goals are going to happen next year or the year after that. I still think about them every day. Visualizing myself doing this stuff makes me jazzed about life. It makes my daily grind worth it.

Next time you need a pick-me-up, try jotting down one goal, large or small. If you don’t know what your goals are, here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • If I had one week off from work, what country would I visit?
  • What’s one habit I’d like to develop in the next few months?
  • What’s one thing I’d like to learn how to do?
  • How much money do I want to save for something big, like a vacation?
