Gretchen Rubin is generating quite the buzz with her “Happiness Project.” And in this HuffPost blogpost, she asserts that reliving happy memories from the past is one small secret that happy people share. I so agree. And remind you that taking a BreakAway is a sure way to ensure that your past is packed with joyful experiences worth revisiting.
Here are a few Rubin blog quotes + a comment…
Philosophers and scientists agree: if there is one element that is the key to happiness, it’s having strong relationships with other people.”
Remembering happy times in the past is a great way to boost happiness in the present.”
I keep a one-sentence journal.”
Sure, a BreakAway pushes you into the Here and Now in a way that the daily routine can’t match. But when it’s over—and you’ve had to go home again—you remember that day surfing the wave, baking the bread, or hiking the mountain forever. Those things change you, and the rich reminiscences only appreciate over time. And that’s a happy thought indeed.
