If it feels good, do it

If it feels good to you, do it. If it feels bad to you, don't.

This has been really helpful advice for me in pursuing happiness, and I am wondering what you think about it.

I like it because it requires me to slow down and actually pay attention to how different possibilities feel. Will it feel good to eat that food? Have that conversation? Send that email? Try that new thing?

When I've taken the time to notice what would feel good, and then do it, I don't think I've ever regretted it.

I only get in trouble when I start telling myself there's no time to slow down, and act on the first automatic thought that pops into my head.

What about you? Can you relate? What would you add?
