Sometimes clients struggle with learning how to feel happy and fulfilled in their lives. Whether it is due to depression, low self-esteem, or motivation issues, it is not uncommon for clients in therapy to struggle to find traction toward happiness or contentment. These clients will ultimately feel lost and sometimes hopeless in their efforts to feel better.
Through feeling self-fulfillment and purpose, a client can learn how to create and stick to a path to feeling happy and content.
About This Worksheet
This is a Building Happiness worksheet. This worksheet is designed to pave out a two-week game plan to guide a client on a journey to feel a sense of purpose and self-fulfillment. This worksheet incorporates socialization skills, meditation, mental health and physical health and wellness, gratitude, and personal growth to guide the client along the path of self-fulfillment.
