Happiness is the combined experience of moment to moment joy, contentment, and positive well-being, with a longer term sense that one’s life is good, meaningful, and worthwhile.
The moment to moment bits are processed mostly in the right half of the brain, the “Right Here Right now Right Hemisphere”, and it’s usually relatively easy to identify when we feel joy, contentment, pleasure, and what things make us feel this way.
But the sense of meaningful contribution and connection can be more subjective and depends on more on your core values as an individual and what relationships we build.
Sometimes we need to reflect on this deeper alignment to something meaningful, beyond simply a pleasurable life as lasting happiness comes from balancing both halves of the equation — having meaning behind pleasure.
