How To Be Happier?
Good question right? How to be happier? In this day and age there is a lot to fear. People are riddled with anxiety and fear. Happiness seems like a fairy tale to many. What if I told you that you absolutely can be happy? You deserve to give yourself a peaceful, aligned and well balanced life. Many don’t feel they deserve to be happy. They play the “victim” role. Identified with their past stories creating suffering and isolation. We can create happiness in the hear and now.
How To Be Happier
The following is a list of ways to start bringing happiness into your life.
Think less about yourself.
It’s proven that when we think more about helping others we are happier. It’s when we are consumed by self that we get trapped in the mind.
Treat yourself with small wins.
Yes one way proven to increase your happiness is to set up a system where you win. No matter the size of the win. It helps to keep your confidence up and you moving forward.
Plan for fun time
You can’t expect to be happy while you work all the time. You need to schedule in some time for fun. The happiest people are those who work hard and know how to play hard as well.
We all have our vices or “isms” I call them. Staying busy and working is another form of addiction.
Be kind to others.
Treat others like you want to be treated. This isn’t just a statement thrown around for no reason. When you project happiness out into this world you will get it reflected back. We choose to see what we want to see. Make it a point to see the good in others.
Stop sweating the small stuff.
What really can you control in life? You can only control your reaction to events that happen. Take ownership for everything that happens to you. There is no place in life for the victim. See challenges as opportunities to grow and know better what it is you want in life.
Keep positive people around you.
Stop trying to hold onto friends that are negative, selfish and non motivated. You don’t owe anyone anything. Align with like minded people. If you want to know how to be happier in life there is a saying, “show me your friends and I will show you your future”.
Take a break from social media.
Facebook will tend to have negative effects on your happiness. By taking a break from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, you will stop comparing yourself to others. Watch your level of happiness increase.
Sometimes we all want to just escape. The world at times seems dark and plain scary. By practicing techniques for mindfulness we will experience much more fully the positive and negative. We are manifesters of our own reality. We will become more engaged in our lives in this present moment.
