4 Steps to Increase Your Happiness
The science behind happiness & attraction plus 4 steps to increase your happiness.

Want to know how to attract a quality man and to experience great joy in life? Here's the science behind happiness and attraction, plus 4 steps to increase your happiness. It may come as a surprise to learn that the number one thing that attracts quality men is a happy woman. Happiness is a characteristic that men say is alluring over any other physical trait.

When we feel happy and love ourselves, men and others love us. It's a great equation where self love and happiness equal attraction and love from others. Here's how this equation looks:

Self -love + happiness = alluring attraction and love from others

This healthy self-esteem and happiness becomes a magnet for positive life experiences and connected relationships. The embodiment of self-love and happiness creates the kind of fulfilling life that women want. Great stuff, right!?

So, what’s the secret to happiness?

The secret to happiness was revealed to me in a presentation by Dr. Henry Cloud. In his talk, he shared an interesting and scientifically proven fact: we all have a happiness set point. It's our default level of happiness.

According to Dr. Cloud, only ten percent of our happiness comes from anything circumstantial (job promotion, marriage, baby, winning the lottery, etc.). While you may get an initial surge of joy from an external circumstance, after time, it goes back down to your set point. Aha! That explains a lot!

Dr. Cloud went on to reveal that there are action steps that we can take to raise our happiness set point so that we can increase our joy and maintain a high caliber of happiness and fulfillment.

Here are 4 action steps you can take to increase your happiness set point:

1)   Connect with others from your heart and soul.

2)   Give without an agenda. Give with joy.

3)   Set goals. Goals give us purpose and fulfillment.

4)   Appreciation. Develop an attitude of gratitude.

Simple, yet powerful. Start taking action! Choose one of the 4 items above that you can take action on today to raise your happiness set point and watch your day unfold in a more joyful way.

You are meant to shine with happiness and enjoy a fulfilling love-filled life.
