Not much is making me happy at the moment, but I felt happy yesterday because I helped my friend clean her scungy old apartment that she just moved out of. It was horrible, so I had a great sense of achievement at the end of it :P. I read somewhere a suggested happiness exercise where at the end of the day you list off 10 good things that happened to you that day. Its meant to help you change to a more positive way of thinking. I'm not sure if it works though since if you don't have much good stuff going on you end up being like 'oh yeah that sandwich I had for lunch was great' and its kind of more depressing than if you hadn't done it. Thoughts? Anyone else care to try it out?
being alive? having a education? having a place to live? having friends? had a great life overall? having food on the table? people carrying about you? no one close to you die?
