Every day you make a multitude of choices that have the potential to create happiness. Push snooze or workout? Lend a hand or move on your way? Greasy burger or a healthy salad? Retaliate or listen?
In between impulse and action, there is a space called choice.
Your happiness horsepower lies in those commonplace decisions.
Our prosperous lives create lots of options. When faced with a decision, be mindful. Stop and breath to create a space so that you can ask yourself, “Which choice best serves me?”
Short term satisfaction may be pleasing in the moment, but it could steer you off the path to a long-term goal. Conversely, a boring or challenging decision at the time may lead to greater life satisfaction later.
Use mindfulness to harness your happiness horsepower. Just breathe to use the power of choice.
