You don’t have to set high-pressure, all-or-nothing goals in the new year to do more, get more, or be more. You might think a higher-paying job, a better relationship, or a fancier car will make you happier. But it’s true what they say — happiness comes from within. And cultivating happiness has much more to do with appreciating what you have than with getting things you don’t.
To have a happier, more joyful, and serene year, choose a few of these intentions and embrace them in your daily life.
