Happiness is essential for a fulfilling life. People who are happy tend to be mentally and physically healthier, have stronger relationships, and feel better overall.
Despite its importance, many people find it hard to be happy. Anxiety over money, stress over relationships, fear of not measuring up to others, uncertainty at work, and health worries – our own and those we care for – often keep us from feeling joyous.
The epidemic of loneliness, depression, and other mental health challenges also weighs heavily on large percentages of the population. Even if we have wealth, stature, and good physical and mental health, happiness may still elude us.
Why is happiness so elusive?
The answer can be found in a study that Harvard University has been conducting since 1938. Researchers followed 724 people for decades asking questions about their lives every two years. The key finding: Happiness depends more on the strength of positive relationships than how much money you make, your social status, or career achievements.
It’s true: Relationships do matter. And they can overcome many of the challenges that seem to get in the way of true happiness.
For this reason alone, it is imperative that we identify the positive, affirming and supportive people in our lives. Recognize the very important few that you are especially grateful to have in your life.
This includes the people that have supported, mentored, cared for and/or served you and your family recently and in the past. This includes nurses and teachers, professional colleagues and close friends, pastors and advisers.
Be mindfully intentional and purposeful to let them know how much they mean to you. That their effort, energy, and care did not go unnoticed and it made a positive difference in your life.
This is yet another reason dulci sweets was founded. To help you invest in those relationships. To help you share your appreciation and thankfulness for the great people that bring joy and light to you and those you love.
