(If you’re wondering: What is Happify? Click here to learn more.)

In birth, parenting and in happiness, it turns out, I like the idea of having options, a variety of tools and ways to handle a situation, confront a setback or solve a problem. Visually, I picture a toolbox of choices.

In teaching childbirth education classes, I expose families to a wide range of options for their birth experience including choices for relaxation, movement, labor and birth positions and the very first decisions as parents.

I love the quote by Diana Korte and Roberta Scaer, authors of A Good Birth, A Safe Birth, who said: “If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.” As in birth, so it is in life. There are lot’s of options to increase your contentment and happiness – start by checking out Happify and making yourself a happiness toolbox!happify, what is happify, happiness is, introducing happify, is happify a game

The science shows you can do things to affect your happiness. Even a generally happy person can find reminders to stay focused on what’s really important in life helpful. It’s far too easy to get pulled into the tedium and nitty-gritty of daily details and lose sight of our guiding values and our larger purpose.
