How to take control of your happiness



In a world where the hours, minutes, and seconds of our days are constantly monitored and accounted for--when do we step back and focus on the “me” portion of the day?

According to Mental Health America anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, and affect almost 20% of the population over the age of 18. Those numbers are scary, right? Let’s take that twenty percent and add that to the rapidly rising number of adolescents facing the same anxiety disorders--another 35% on top of the adult population!

We are all busy. We are all trying to find a “quick fix”. We are all surely wanting the easiest and most hassle-free way to find the happy in our own lives. That’s a huge reason why The Washington Post has cited that the 150 BILLION dollars that the U.S. spends on their mental health is only rising.

The cheapest alternative to expensive therapies and medications? All sources point to daily  journaling. If you’re anything like us, after an overwhelming day--the last thing we want to do is sit and journal about our feelings. Journaling and tracking your happiness along with the daily factors that influence that state of being have been proven to help manage anxiety, reduce stress, and cope with depression. Add in the facts that tracking things like your sleep, mood, and overall well-being make you a well balanced human being, and the pros definitely outweigh the cons.
