How To Focus On What Really Matters #OptimisticOctober

“You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream”  ~ Anonymous

What really matters to you? We all want to live happy and fulfilling lives and we want the people we love to be happy too. So happiness matters to all of us. #OptimisticOctober

Happiness is about our lives as a whole: it includes the fluctuating feelings we experience everyday but also our overall satisfaction with life. It is influenced by our genes, upbringing and our external circumstances – such as our health, our work and our financial situation. But crucially it is also heavily influenced by our choices – our inner attitudes, how we approach our relationships, our personal values and our sense of purpose.

[How to love and appreciate yourself]

There are many things in life that matter to us – including health, freedom, autonomy and achievement. But if we ask why they matter we can generally give further answers – for example, that they make people feel better or more able to enjoy their lives. But if we ask why it matters if people feel better, we can give no further answer. It is self-evidently desirable. Our overall happiness – how we feel about our lives – is what matters to us most
