Now, the icing on the cake.
NVC training also helps us to expand our happiness vocabulary.
NVC encourages us to identify and celebrate our positive feelings and our met needs. When we immerse ourselves in the positive, the negative gradually diminishes. It’s the old “is the glass half empty or half full” story.
Here’s one way to fill up your glass – and life – with more contentment and joy. Experiment with expanding your positive vocabulary and see how it feels. Here are a few dazzling words to sparkle up a moment or two and get your started on vocabulary enhancement.
There are almost 100 happy words on the NVC list of “feelings when your needs are satisfied”. That’s three-months’ worth of mood enhancers if you practice using one word from the list each day. You could refresh yourself each morning and start with a brand new word. Be imaginative and see how many different ways you are able to use it throughout the day.
Print out the list, pin it up in a obvious place, and give it a try. What better time to practice joy than the present moment?
Ultimately, abundance is a state of being. One we can all get started on right now.
