Happiness

July 30, 2019

 

Life satisfaction. Well-being. Happiness.

 

All are interchangeable. 

 

How many times do I hear people say, “I just want you to be happy.” Or, “ I want to be satisfied with my life.”

 

We just concluded our Flourish Lifestyles retreat titled: The Happiness Retreat.

 

We designed numerous activities to cultivate happiness. We practiced mindfulness during our hike, practiced silence, did a sense and savor walk and discussed our wandering mind.

 

We cooked together, tasted biodynamic wine, made a list of “dreams”, harvested arnica and tasted living tea. We were able to connect with the beauty of nature. All these were very intentional and uplifting.

 

I related the research supporting the fact we reap the benefits of mindfulness activities long after we do the practices. It is like building a muscle. The more we engage in activities to cultivate well-being, the happier we are. 

 

As we explored and enjoyed Telluride, I noticed people truly present in the moment and fully embracing mountain activities and community. I witnessed conversation and enjoyment of nature for all ages. No phones. No computers. Anywhere. 

 

I was freshly reminded of the power of happiness activities as I returned home to Austin. 

 

I transitioned to my daily life, work and family with a deep calm and a reservoir of happiness. I have felt it continually through the days and nights.

 

It is a layer of happiness wrapping my heart, soul and mind. It energizes me and helps me stay in the present moment.

 

I am in awe of the power of opportunities to cultivate happiness. And what is so amazing is the fact I can continue them wherever I am! 

 

Maintaining the calm, filling the reservoir.

 

 

With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.   Isaiah 12:3
