What Makes a Happy Life

Last updated Feb 9, 2024

Besides Stoicism and Journaling, it’s relationships. According to the  most comprehensive study in happiness, the happiest people are the ones having genuine relationships.

I always keep this in the back of my mind and add the value of time to it. It keeps me grounded in the things most valuable to me. With meditation on death, for example, called Memento Mori, where you always be aware that you could die tomorrow or have an irreparable sickness.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

It also shows the factor of time as the most valuable thing we have on this earth. Being mindful about it and sharing it with friends and family also makes good Relationships, which again was shown to be the best indication of happiness. I also believe in  The More You Share the More You Get and generally being somewhat positive than rather negative also helps a lot in going through my life.
