You’ve probably heard it said that happiness is a state of mind. If that’s true then why do so many people experience such a wide range of emotions that are anything less than happy? The secret is probably simpler than what most realise and it’s often under appreciated or seldom acknowledged. That is that happiness is emotionally incremental.
What this means is that happiness is an emotional state which is accessed by us whenever we believe the criteria for happiness is met. And because it’s the criteria we set that determine when we feel happy, then it’s important for us to be clear on what those criteria are and whether they are empowering us to experience happiness frequently or keeping us disempowered and unhappy.
