H-Factor Where Is Your Heart


WHAT IS YOUR HAPPINESS? HAPPINESS AND YOUR SENSES BY LISA CYPERS KAMEN

By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness

Taste

Do you slowly enjoy each mouthful on your plate?  In our hectic lives we can sometimes forget how enjoyable food can be.  We are lucky enough to be able to enjoy foods from all over the world.  Take your time with your evening meal tonight, plan something you try and plan a special meal once a week, it will give you something to look forward to and keep you smiling to yourself.

Touch

I love a hug with my loved ones to show them how much I value and appreciate them.  Not only does this act of kindness make me feel good, it also can give them a boost, knowing that they are valued. Touching things around you can lessen your stress levels and help you relax.

Smell

Maybe you like the smell of freshly cut grass or a home baked loaf of bread. Our sense of smell sometimes triggers memories of where we know that scent from like roses remind you of grandma’s garden, or baby powder reminds you of bathing your children.  Whatever the smell, the good ones can make us smile with pleasure when we smell them.

Hearing

Our ears can bring us so many pleasures!  First of all there’s the sound of laughter, or listening to your favorite music to bring a smile to your face and a cheer to your heart.

Many people find listening to books easier or more pleasurable than reading them.

Sight

Our eyes are another sense that can give us an overwhelming display of the enjoyable things in life.  Wandering round a new place, you take in a whole array of new things to look at. Take time out in a garden to enjoy the flowers and plants in it.  Just looking at the smile on a loved one’s face can make you smile just as widely.  The world around us gives us lots of things for our eyes to drink in, take time out from your busy life and have a look around where you live or work.  There are many things around us that are a pleasure to see we don’t always notice them.

Our senses are some the most valuable tools we have to bring awareness to our surroundings and ourselves. Let’s use them to their fullest to make our lives more pleasurable and get the most out of our lives to make them as happy as possible.
