Ever since I started tracking my happiness, I have always wondered what factor has the most influence on my life. I've been tracking the factors that have a significant influence on my happiness for almost 5 years now.

At the end of every day, I briefly reflect for a moment to determine what has the most positive and significant effect on my happiness.

I then track my happiness and the happiness factors in my happiness journal. For this, I use Google Sheets.

I use another Google Sheet to query, group and sort the data. I've also created the charts in this sheet, which are updated directly after I finish tracking my happiness.

My biggest sources of happiness are:

  1. My relationship

  2. Running

  3. Relaxing (could be anything, like reading, watching netflix, browsing etc)

  4. Friends

  5. Work

  6. Family

  7. Music

What's interesting to me is that about 80% of my happiness is caused by roughly 20% of my unique happiness sources (the ones I mention).

I love this! My chart would just be a big square with 'cats' written on it!
