"We first make our habits, and then our habits make us."
John Dryden sums up why I wrote my book about happiness around habits. If we can change some habits that actually make us unhappy into habits that make us happy, would that not make everybody happier? Habits such as putting painful experiences behind us instead of holding onto guilt or resentment. Habits such as appreciating little things, rather than wishing for what we don't have. Habits such as sharing our inner thoughts with people who will build us up rather than tear us down.
What habits are making you today?
