Are you a glass half full or half empty person? This is a great example to illustrate that there are often two sides to any story and that you have a choice in how you view things. And that choice, in turn, determines how happy you feel. Happiness then becomes a choice you make every single day.
Your perspective determines your mood. Rather than dwelling on the fact that you’re almost done with your delicious glass of iced tea and feeling down, try shifting your focus to the fact that you still have half a glass of ice-cold tea to enjoy. By choosing to see the glass as half full, you can boost your mood and increase your happiness. Remember, it’s all about your mindset and how you choose to approach life’s little moments.
When you look at it that way, happiness really is a conscious choice you make, at least to a point. From what I’ve been reading, 40% of your happiness is directly affected by how you think and how you choose to feel.
And that’s what the next 30 days are all about. Over the coming days, you’ll see a post here on the website daily with tips, advice, and strategies to help you make a conscious decision to be happier.

I look forward to seeing you on the other side. Here’s why I decided to do this for the coming 30 days. Since happiness is a choice and a choice we make every single day, I want to challenge you to make it a habit. Over the coming days, I want to inspire and encourage you to make a choice each morning to be happier.
It takes time and daily conscious decisions to change habits and how we approach life. That’s where the challenge comes into play. The idea is that you have a daily reminder here on the blog and via email each day to help you remember to make that choice.
Of course, there will also be plenty of helpful content on the topic of happiness in the form of a new daily blog post. At the end of the challenge, I hope you have formed new habits, new ways of thinking, and new ways to look at each situation as it arises. With a little shift in thinking and perception, you can craft a happier, more fulfilling life for yourself. I hope this challenge will help you get there.
