If you scored 15 or under, you are dissatisfied with your life. If you scored 31 or higher, you are extremely satisfied with your life.
If you scored somewhere in the middle, happiness expert Dr. Robert Holden has some advice on how to live a more satisfying life. Dr. Holden says the key to being happy is overcoming “destination addiction,” which he defines as “living in the not-now.”
“It’s always about tomorrow, so you’re chasing ‘more,’ ‘next’ and ‘there,'” he says. “You promise yourself that when you get there, you’ll be happy. And I promise you, you won’t, because you’ll always set another destination to go for.”
Instead, Dr. Holden says if you are unhappy with your life or looking to improve your score, there are two things you can do. “We have to learn to let go of our past, we have to give up all hopes for a perfect past. Let the past go, it’s gone.” After that, he says, “Take a vow of kindness. Be kinder to yourself and to others.
“It’s never too late to be happy,” he says.

It would seem that your happiness is being affected by your day to day surroundings. This includes your physical environment at home or at work, the places you frequent, the people you engage with regularly and the personal relationships you have – or don’t have. Which aspects of your surroundings are the ones that are not how you would like them to be? Think about a typical day, week or month. Mentally go through it. What do you see, hear and feel? What is not working well for you? Your happiness will increase if you like where you are in life. Which aspects of your life/work are you able to change now? Once you know what you can change, then it is possible to consider which ones to start working on. It may be a good idea to begin with the smallest changes that will give you the biggest rewards and therefore the most pleasure
Your responses suggest that you have a great feeling of optimism about life, generally expecting things to go well and ensuring that you do the kind of things today that make you happy. You seem to have recognised that happiness is often gained from finding time for things you enjoy doing rather than putting things off until tomorrow. You might want to take time to consider if there are areas of your life that detract from your happiness. Do you find yourself doing things you don’t enjoy? Be sure to maintain a healthy balance in tending towards optimism while checking out your hopes against reality.
3. Capabilities and Skills:
Your answers also suggest that you feel you could do much more with your life or in your work than you have to date. You may also feel slightly cheated by life. Happiness comes from growing and developing as a person. You know you have talents and gifts that you have never developed properly because somehow other things have got in the way. This is likely to be a source of frustration for you and will therefore take away from your happiness. So why not choose one thing that you have always wanted to learn or achieve? It could be in sport or music, it could be developing your artistic side, gaining a qualification, learning a new skill, applying for a new job – anything you know you could be good at but where you have never really tested yourself. The great thing here is to stretch yourself beyond your comfort level, but making sure it is in an area where you have maximum chance of success, so that you will feel good about yourself
4. Values and Beliefs:
Generally you believe that you are true to yourself and that in most areas of your life you are in control, doing what is important to you personally. You know how to accommodate the needs of others into your life and generally this is under control. Sometimes you may feel that the balance may be slightly wrong and you may occasionally feel the stress and pressure of doing what other people need rather than something that you find fulfilling. Why not identify those moments or situations when you feel that you have been pushed aside and decide what you need to do to get back in control, doing the things that you value and believe in.
It appears that you may be feeling uncertain or dissatisfied about who you are. Maybe you are living your life according to the labels other people have imposed on you. Perhaps you are allowing this despite the fact that you secretly know that you are better than that. Much happiness springs from knowing who you are, accepting that you are not perfect because after all – who is? Then you can aim to be the best of who you already are. You can make a start in finding out the real you by making a list of all the labels people have applied to you since childhood and crossing out the ones that simply don’t apply. Next, write a list of all of those positive points that go towards making you the person that you are today. By focussing on all of these plus points, you will leave behind descriptions that no longer apply and begin to be the person you really are.
It looks as though sometimes you feel you are aimlessly drifting along. You are not clear about where you are heading and you are unsure about the contribution you are making. Happy people often have a strong sense of purpose. They feel they are part of something which is bigger than themselves and that they are content in the knowledge that they are making a difference. Their life has meaning and they feel worthwhile. Write down all the things that currently give your life meaning. Now identify areas of dissatisfaction and decide what you might be able to do to change this.
