My very first article I ever wrote is about happiness. It is one of my favorite topics and in this article I will give you an easy technique to find it.

Voor Nederlands, klik hier.

A while ago, I heard a “Happiness Professor” on the radio. He talked about Happiness and how to find it. Apparently, it’s simple to grasp it. Huh?


First, you have to have Goals in life. Man wants to be doing things and be useful. If not, then everything stands still, and soon you feel dull, bored and depressed. To beat this, it’s good to have goals. There are numerous methods to define goals to find on internet and one of my articles gives you one of mine.


Furthermore, you also needs Recharge points. These can be different for each of us. Recharge stations include a visit to a spa resort, hiking, sports, watch a movie, play music or read a book. I call this: “doing things for myself” and this includes drinking a cup of coffee somewhere or practice yoga. You can find more tips to recharge in this and this article.


Finally, the “Happiness Professor” mentions People. Be among people to experience happiness. This can be with friends, colleagues or family. Man is a social animal and can find happiness by being with others. With others you can discuss, you can learn and you can laugh.

One of my goals for 2020 is to get to know someone new every week. And that goes further than just saying hello. The point in the conversations is to discover how someone else thinks, what his/her Why is and what his goals are in life.
Now I already have a Goal and People. I still need to recharge. There are enough opportunities of them in my life.
The “Happiness Professor” is right with his assertion that happiness is simple to grasp. Maybe we are being too difficult to find it.
