The Happiness Project is already working for me
This morning I visited The Happiness Project (the site referenced yesterday.) The post for today is entitled Try to do one nagging task each day, or better yet, avoid having a nagging task. I tend to let tasks pile up in a big way, so upon reading that post I decided to stop everything (i.e. surfing and blogging) until I'd completed a task. It was to simply be cleaning out the lizard cage, but my eyes didn't have to stray far before I realized that cleaning my desk would lead to greater happiness. Now I've cleaned the desk, cleaned out the drawers, changed the months on the wipe-off calendar and changed the lizards' dirt. So far, no happier, but I have hope that the happiness will build as I continue to see the clean desk. I needed to do it anyway, so, the Happiness Project blog's still working for me whether this makes me happier or not.
