How do i become happy?
Happiness they say its free but, its totally different in the case of some people.
Some people even believe that when they are not happy, they have a right to complain about it and that complaining will cause them to be happy! which its abosolutely not the right thing to do
Well, here are my tips to help you get more happiness
1. Know and Accept That it is Okay and Normal to be Happy
Do not see being happy as being unduly selfish, or materialistic, or self-centred. Just because someone around you has the blues does not mean you too have to go down to their level.
2. Look for the Positive Things in Your Life Right Now
Live your life with positive optimism. Negative thoughts and worry zap your energy.
Thinking of the good and positive things in your life generates feelings of warmth, affection, appreciation, hope, and security, and draw positive things to you.
Also, spend more time with positive people. Arrange to meet up with that friend who always seems to lift your spirits.
3. Cut Down on the Input of Negativity Such as Through the Media
Stay well informed, but watching news reports over and over again about things you can do nothing about will bring dark clouds into your life.
4. Show Gratitude
Make a list of at least 5 things that you are grateful for in your life. Just take a second and realise that you are alive! Be happy with what you’ve got – not what you want. Focus on what is right in your life rather than what is wrong.
5. Appreciate All That You Have Got Going for You Right Now
For example, stop obsessing about wanting a slimmer body and be grateful that you can walk. Begin today to tell all the people in your life how much you appreciate them being there for you.
Remember to show your appreciation also for those people who make life so easy for you such as the postman and the dustman.
Also, tell at least one person today just what you like about them.
6. Look for Ways of Helping Other People
This will stop you focussing so much on yourself and your current life situation.
7. Consider Learning a New Skill Whilst You Can
You will get an immense sense of accomplishment if you finally start that long promised course.
Sounds simple and it is. Try this today when you go out – smile at everyone you see. Yes – even strangers. The more you smile, the more people will smile back at you. Be prepared to be surprised at what comes back to you. You will feel happier and you will be spreading happiness around you.
9. Call Someone and Make Their Day
Make at least one friendly phone call each day, with no intention to get some business or anything else. Just a friendly hello without any expectation.
10. Eat Healthy and Quality Food
Treat yourself to hardy winter vegetables such as squashes. How sunny you feel depends so much on what you are putting into your body. You need and deserve quality foods. Determine what food really works for you, and develop a personal way of eating that will support you. Consult a nutritionist if necessary. Treat yourself – because you are worth it.
