#CBT For #MentalHealth: #HAPPINESS TRAPS, PART 1
I coined the term "happiness traps" to refer to our inclinations to hinge happiness to things like wealth, food, physical appearance, orderliness, etc. I have to be rich, eat stuff, be beautiful, or keep my stuff just so to be happy. Often, the attainment of these circumstances lies beyond immediate control. Or, if we briefly arrive at our destination, we then must do something else to lift up happiness again, So sustainable happiness is beyond our control. Happiness traps trip up happiness. You can find many other tools and techniques for improving emotional health in my new guide.
