What is tracking happiness exactly?

Tracking happiness is actually very simple and takes less than 2 minutes per day.

The entire method is based on three simple ideas:

Step 1: Determine your daily happiness rating

Rate every single day based on your feeling of happiness, on a scale from 1 to 10.

Step 2: Determine the happiness factors

Which factors influenced your happiness, both positive and negative?

Step 3: Keep it up and learn!

As you continue tracking happiness, your data will become more valuable.
