Happiness Project: 12 Topics To Tackle

Happiness Project 2012
Happiness can be found on the beach :)
While the title of this post sounds a bit like it's a bit like a project manager's rendition of "12 days of Christmas," I had a little something different in mind. As Gretchen Rubin decided to do in her own Happiness Project, I am going to assign a topic for each month of the year. I took a little time to reflect on those things that are most important to me, and here's my list. I still need to figure out what order these go in :) and make sure they are the twelve that I want to commit to spending time with.

Energy (January)
Spirit
Love
Money / Finances
Family
Creativity
Profession
Learning / Mind
Home
Body
Order
Celebrate

For each month, my plan is to post about a handful of things that I'm focusing on around the month's topic. I realize I can't tackle everything, so I'll probably limit it to four or five things. Stuff that is important, that may make a difference in my life.

For example, in January, I'm planning on focusing on the following items in the Energy category, with the idea being that each of these things will allow me to feel more energetic each day:
Sleep, and getting a new bed
Eating Right
Exercising
Speaking my mind
Lists
Decluttering
Tackling tasks that have been dragging on far too long
Scheduling a vacation

What do you do to feel energized? Any suggestions?

Sending you all happy thoughts,
Paula
