Am I Happy?

Am I Happy?

The road to happiness isn’t always easy, nor does it really have one final destination. Joy exists on a spectrum.

A lack of contentment is one of the most common overarching themes people bring up in therapy.

While it’s best to seek tailored advice from a therapist for yourself, it can be helpful to see just how therapy has helped people with this particular issue.

You Don't Always Have To Be Okay

You Don't Always Have To Be Okay

Accept That You'll Mess Up Sometimes

Accept That You'll Mess Up Sometimes

Therapists look at you in your roles as employee or friend and also as humans. And we have to accept that sometimes we will do things wrong and those times we won’t feel our best.

We're allowed to occasionally fail, but pick yourself up and adopt a growth mindset and find joy in the process of its learning. We need to know that we’re all just trying our best.

Take Your Own Happiness Serio

Take Your Own Happiness Serio

It seems pretty obvious, but it is so easy to put your own happiness on the back burner due to external stressors like work, relationships or just life as a whole. Don't say "I'll worry about myself later", learn to consider it NOW.

People think they can have full control over other peoples’ feelings, but note the importance of letting that go. You can only control your own feelings, which means you can control the actions that trigger those feelings.

Don’t ignore what makes you happy, or else you’re holding yourself back.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
