How to Get Your Happy Fix

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy for me, but also incredibly fun.  There were the three weeks in Asia, then that trip to Vegas, then the 4th of July…

Then, I hit a bit of a slump this week and it started to feel…well…icky.  Some weeks, I relish my alone time to do… whatever I want!  In fact, not too long ago, I wrote The Benefits of Spending Time Alone where I talked about exploring Tokyo.  This week, I realized I needed to come up with something on my own to fuel my happy fix.  So I started to think about things that get me into my flow…that feeling of total engagement where you don’t notice time or anything else.


What gets you into your flow may not come to you right away.  Think about something you used to do when you were younger.  For me, I find it is tapping into the creative side of my brain.  For years, I worked in an environment where I used my analytical side almost exclusively.  One of my outlets years ago used to be making wedding and party invitations.  At the end of last year, I discovered Nia, and it reminded me how much I loved to express myself through dance.

Whatever it is for you, don’t be afraid to try it again…maybe in a whole new way.  If it makes you feel connected to something, it will make you feel better.  That’s what fuels your happy fix.

What’s the special thing that puts you into your flow?  Tell me about it below this post.  It may inspire someone else’s happy this week!
