We all need to be more relaxed and of course HAPPY! Below a Few Tips on how to stay Happy
HAPPY International Day of Happiness!
I have a question for you: How often do you feel like a ‘room without a roof’? According to Pharrell Williams, this “space without limit” feeling is universally achievable. But for many of us, limitless happiness takes a little work. So, what are some of the best habits to practice for feeling happy every day?
MANAGE THE DOWN DAYS
You know the days. Those days when you’re telling yourself the ‘I’m not good enough’ story (which we all have, by the way). The days where things seem to go from bad to worse.
It’s very easy to get trapped at this point because many of us start feeling bad for feeling bad. There are enough external pressures to always be ‘up’ and cheerful, without applying internal pressure too. Acknowledge you’re feeling suboptimal, and do a quick stocktake.
If you can change things, take action. If not, do something that helps to calm you, comfort you or cheer you up (even a little bit).
DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK
Much unhappiness is caused by paying way too much attention to our thoughts. Our minds are constantly telling us stories to explain the world around us. Many times these stories are accurate, but unfortunately, whenever we don’t have enough data, our mind just fills in the gaps.
As soon as we hear our minds saying things like, “They ALWAYS let me down” or “She NEVER keeps her promises” we need to reach for the metaphorical handbrake.
Get in the habit of asking yourself if that’s strictly true. Remember it’s just a story you’re telling yourself. There are always exceptions. Remembering to look for (and recognise) the exceptions means much happier states of mind.
Being grateful, taking responsibility, blaming less, learning to forgive and yes, even practising random acts of kindness, all predictably increase our happiness.
