Reason #8: Little to Look Forward To

Everyone deals with peaks and valleys in their lives, but if your life consists of more valleys than peaks right now, it could affect your motivation, happiness and even energy. “You might be tired and dispirited because you don’t have anything to look forward to,” says Caroline Miller, MAPP, a life coach and the author of Creating Your Best Life. “Happy people tend to have a ‘savoring’ personality, which means that they often are anticipating pleasurable events, and their calendars are studded with parties, mini-trips, and outings with people who make them smile.”

What to do? If you don’t have much happening on the horizon, consider doing some goal-setting. “The happiest among us always wake up to clear-cut, challenging goals, according to groundbreaking research published in 2008,” says Miller. “It’s important that the goals take us out of our comfort zone, because efforts to accomplish those goals are what we tend to value most at the end of the day, and that elevates our self-esteem.”
