A Guide To Practical Contentment, by Leo Babauta

A Guide To Practical Contentment, by Leo Babauta | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
We start out in life thinking that we're awesome. We can dance in public as 5-year-olds and not care what others think of us. By the time we're adults, that's driven out of us. We doubt, judge, and criticize ourselves as we strive for happiness.

 

A lot of people search for ways to find happiness, but I’ve found the idea of contentment to be more important than happiness.
Why contentment over happiness? A couple of important reasons:

Happiness can go up or down each day (or moment), but contentment is something more stable.
We tend to seek to increase happiness by adding things (food, excitement, a warm bath, time with a loved one) but contentment is a skill that allows you to subtract things and still be content.
