    "haven't been happy yet in 2020"

    hmm, I mean yeah
    but it's only the 15th day, right?
    we talking happy for a whole day (overall counts) or just moments or what

    I wonder if it would be valuable or damaging to try and keep a happiness diary

    Nothing adds to the gaiety of life like dissecting every fleeting moment of joy and assigning it a score based on an exhaustively annotated scale to see whether it qualifies as true happiness or is merely base contentment.

    making notes of things that made you happy in a day seems like a great practice

    writing stuff downs reinforces it, if my understanding of how note taking works is true, and when I'm depressed I have a tendency to way overdo the negativity bias so reminders that no, in fact, life is not completely terrible might be good

    I agree that practicing gratitude in general is a good thing

    i'm sure there's a nice SAAS happiness diary that you could sub to for like 3 dollars a month that will give you periodic reminders to be happy

    Things that have made me happy in January 2020:

    Pictures of cute animals doing cute things
    Quiz shows
    Ticking off tasks at work
    Saving money through coupons
    The brief spurts of validation that come from reactions on this forum
    Cat hugs
    Learning how to make vegan pesto and a pesto-style hummus
    Booking a blood donation appointment

    So I guess try those or your equivalent

    stephen soderbergh watches a LOT of tv and movies

    here's the list of what he saw (or read) last year: http://extension765.com/soderblogh/34-seen-read-2019

    this seems like something @Jacobkosh would like to see

    Does any genuine laughter count as a moment of happiness? Or are they distinct states of being that only sometimes intersect?

    well, yes, point taken

    but consider the approach from the other direction, where the default experience of life is (or at the very least, feels like) one of unhappiness - maybe there's some value to making a deliberate effort of it?

    I don't know, I've not done it and I'm not like advocating it or anything. I just read Shaz's post and the "happy in 2020" framing led me to consider if I had been happy in 2019 and it's difficult for me to answer that with any specifics even though I do think there were at least a couple of days in there probably.

    This is probably true. Certainly a recognition of and consequent greater focus on the things that bring us joy seems like a reasonable strategy.

    You just keep a diary with a picture of each dog you meet that day.

    (unless you're like a vet or work at the RSPCA maybe)

    But you can also do this and then make it so when someone opens the diary it plays In the Arms of An Angel. Then leave it on your coffee table as a trap

    There's probably scope for new comedy about aeroplane food and how great it is now.

    I've had multiple trips where the plane food is the culinary highlight
