Happy Thanksgiving !

 

Happy Thanksgiving everybody !

Are you on the way to your Thanksgiving festivities ? Or maybe you’re taking a much-needed mental break, either way you may be struggling with maintaining your happiness, I don’t care what anybody says Holidays can really be challenging !

Here’s what I have for you today, I actually borrowed this list from  here, the author doesn’t remember where it came from (whoops) ! It is a list of the top 100 happy words taken from a survey of students at an unidentified university, I thought it was interesting and most of them ring true for me.  The list itself is dry but I thought it might be fun to browse these words and then find ways to use them today as a secret weapon to boost our (and hopefully the folks we are speaking to) happiness as we navigate our day.  Just knowing you’re incorporating these stealth happy words into the holiday conversation without anybody being the wiser should bring you some level of happiness 😊.

Here is the list, I reformatted it from its original form to fit in this environment, removed the breaks for advertising blocks, and hopefully made it easier to read! You might notice the students found a little mischievous happiness of their own while doing the survey, good for them !

Somewhat random maybe,and you get a sense of the student perspective, but some of these definitely work for me, how about you ? What words did you expect to see that you didn’t ? Being as it is Thanksgiving one that was lacking for me was “Thankful” because it ties in with (you know what I’m going to say, right ?) “Perspective” ! I think the number 1 word “laughter” is right on , I read it and happy feelings definitely occur..

Here is your arsenal of happy words, use them (or ones that work for you), blend them into your conversations and share some happiness !!  Be Thankful 🙂

Thank you for taking this moment out of your Thanksgiving to read this, a happy thought for me ! 🙂
