Do you often find yourself in a dilemma whether to do something or not? I do, and I have a good way out of it. Just ask yourself one question-
Does this enhance my health and happiness?
Yes, this is the question. And It always helps me making the right choice.
- Should I watch a movie? enhances happiness? Yes.
- Should I try green tea? enhances health? Yes.
- Should I buy this shirt? enhances happiness? Yes.
The flaw in this method is When you are caught between health and happiness. for example-
- Should I eat this Pizza? Health? No, Happiness? Yes.
In such times, it is your choice what to do. But I usually go with health as it will later in life give me long-term happiness. Eating pizza will do give you happiness, but temporary. This doesn’t mean I never eat pizza or I have never done things that I shouldn’t. I did, but at times, you need Happiness, be it temporary.
So, in the end, it is your choice. Be wise, be happy.
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities
