What if we were to think of happiness ‘spatially’? e.g. I am not happy, but happiness feels ‘close’. I am ‘in’ happiness now / in the presence of happiness now, but yesterday happiness felt like it was a million miles away.

This is not an ‘original’ idea, but I have not yet seen it used it in surveys or in psychology.
