How to eke the most happiness out of an event…

4 stages:

1- anticipate the event

2- savor it as it unfolds

3- express happiness

4- remember it later as a happy memory.

Gretchen has her own “12 Commandments” listed in her book and on her blog.  Commandment 6 is “Enjoy the Process”.  Wow~!  What simple advice.  The search, the hunt, the research, the planning….. these components play a part in many events.  Then there might be shopping & rearranging life as another phase of the process. Let each part bring some element of adventure and enjoyment.

The Happiness Project, book by Gretchen Rubin.
