10 Happiness Commandments


(Image source here)

I first came across the concept of happiness commandments when I read Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project and I fell a little bit (a lot) in love with the idea.

Happiness commandments are a set of rules to live by in order to make yourself happier. They're meant to be personal to you - what makes me happy won't necessarily make you smile!

I wanted to capture mine in one place so that I can come back and read them when I'm getting stuck in a rut, so here they are:

1) Get enough sleep

2) Move more

3) Hang out with the people who make me laugh

4) Do good work

5) Explore

6) Read everything

7) Eat great food

8) Get outdoors

9) Learn new things

10) Do stuff for others

Have you got a set of happiness commandments? What would make your list?
