Finishing The Traineeship – Monthly Happiness Report – August, 2015

Hi again! 🙂 It’s time for another Monthly Happiness Report. After an amazing holiday in Croatia, I continued tracking my happiness as I was finishing the traineeship I had started a year ago.

I also got to prepare for another 2 months of work on a project abroad, which started near the end of the month. I traveled to Costa Rica…

Happy In Love – Happiness Through Love: Part 1

Happy In Love – Happiness Through Love: Part 1

My girlfriend and I have been together for more than four years. We are a happy, normal couple. We love, we laugh, we occasionally disagree, we call each other names, we sometimes agree in the end, but most important of all: we make it work. I can honestly say that I’m happy in love. But can I actually support this statement with proof? I have been tracking my happiness for over 3,5 years, including the influence of my relationship on…

Enjoying My Normal Life – Monthly Happiness Report – March, 2015

After having spent the previous 2 months mostly in Kuwait, I was very excited to be back in the Netherlands again, living my normal life.

This post will summarise my happiness throughout this period. Below table shows the average happiness ratings in…

Yearly Happiness Statistics – 2014

Yearly Happiness Statistics – 2014

Hi there, and welcome to my first yearly happiness statistics post of 2014! I will try to highlight my entire year of happiness data in one single post. If it sounds hard, then that’s probably probably because it’s true. Summarising an entire year of happiness tracking data is challenging. There’s definitely value to be found in this yearly recap, though. 2014 was an amazing year for me, and I want to use this post to highlight parts of my data. What am I…

We are entering 2015! The last year, 2014, ended with two months in which my happiness was lower than average. I was ready to turn this around in the new year.

It was all very exciting for me, but did it…

Losing A Relative – Monthly Happiness Report – December, 2014

I have reached the last month of 2015: December! During this month, I finished working on the project in the Netherlands, and got a couple of days off to celebrate the holidays. Unfortunately, the holidays did not turn out as I hoped. My granddad passed away after a long struggle at the age of 84. It greatly affected my happiness during the Christmas days. I want to show you what it did to my happiness, and how I dealt with it….

Adapting To My Work – Monthly Happiness Report – November, 2014

Welcome to the Monthly Happiness Report of November, 2014! During this month, I continued working on the project on the other side of the Netherlands, and learned something about the hedonic treadmill. The first month of working on the project was really exciting. This month, however, things got a little less exciting. I was adapting to my work, and the daily life that came with it. It didn’t have a positive effect on my happiness. Below table shows the average…
