A thing of beauty…

The memory of a beautiful experience can have a positive impact on your wellbeing – Proyer, Rene T; Gander, Fabian; Wellenzohn, Sara; Ruch, Willibald (2016). A beautiful work of art, the beauty of nature and just reflecting about beautiful things that people do has an impact on happiness. Keats said it ‘A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever’ and also Bill Cunningham – ‘Those Who Seek Beauty, Will Find it’ – who spent his working life in its pursuit and enjoyed himself whilst bringing joy to others!

Your strenghts

Peterson and Seligman (2004) provide a classification of ‘virtues and character strengths’ that contribute to the ‘good life’. The list is comprehensive and a key motivation for the development of the classification was helping people to live to its full potential through understanding their key strengths. Knowing ourselves and our strengths of character and virtues and applying them regularly will, it seems, contribute to our overall happiness. Do you know your strengths? Time for an audit?

If you want to be happy cultivate your sense of humour!

If you search google scholar for ‘happiness” and “wellbeing” there are in excess of 15,000 publications since 2015. There is great interest in finding the common “traits” that happy people seem to have and testing these through controlled interventions. And, not surprisingly, happy people tend to be good humoured! See: “Humor-based online positive psychology interventions: A randomized placebo-controlled long-term trial”; Sara Wellenzohn, René T. Proyer, and Willibald Ruch The Journal Of Positive Psychology Vol. 11 , Iss. 6,2

Good relationships, Good life

Waldinger talking on the lessons learnt on Harvard’s 75 year long study on happiness concludes. ‘the good life is built on good relationships’. And it is the quality of those relationships not the quantity of connections that matters!

Gratitude

Flexibility and Structure

“Assume a virtue, if you have it not” (Hamlet to the Queen). Develop routines that suit different stages of your life. Flexibility is important but also structure, and particularly that which enables you to have some time everyday to reflect.
