Do What Makes You Happy | EP 26

Do What Makes You Happy | EP 26

“Do whatever makes you happy”, “life is too short”, “you only live once! #YOLO”.

As exciting and fulfilling as all these sound, sometimes doing what makes you happy isn’t always as transparent as it seems.

In this episode of #SwitchOnWithAdaora, Tolu and I have a conversation about the Idea of doing whatever makes you happy in the light that happiness is very relative.

We talk about how these choices affect the different areas of life including Health, Relationship, Career etc.

Show Notes:

  • [3:46] Happiness in your Health, Career and Business: eating junk food just because it makes you happy doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Do what you know is right as opposed to doing what makes you happy. Simply, do what will make you happy in the long-run.

  • [8:07] Practicing self-awareness, and asking yourself, “why is this making me happy? Is there something I’m not seeing?”

  • [11:26] Prioritizing short-term happiness over long-term rewards: just because it’s tough doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Do what you need to do so you can do what you want to do.

  • [13:40] Stooping to conquer; the grass isn’t always greener on the other side, sometimes you have to be patient; time is a great storyteller.

  • [15:14] On Relationships: doing what makes you happy shouldn’t be at the expense of someone else.

  • [15:56] Happiness is infinite and not tied to a particular thing.

  • [21:38] Question whatever makes you happy.
