Scale of happiness?

In his book “Feel happy now!” Michael Neill suggests that you measure your happiness on a scale from 1 to 10. In case you are below 7,  he suggests you find an answer to the following question:

“What could you do right now to take yourself up the scale by one step?

Once you found an answer, of course you should also do it.

It works. Most of the time. But it’s in essence an “activist’s” approach, assuming that we always “have to do” something to improve our well-being.

I found for myself, that the following question is in some cases equally important to ask:

“What could you stop doing right now to take yourself up the “happiness scale” by one step?”
