Most of the happy people I met and interacted with told me that happiness is a great feeling of joy that you experience within you. That feeling is nothing else than wonder and satisfaction in your life; so as it is something more inner self, looking for happiness is focusing more on what going on within you to experience everlasting happiness.
Focus on the ability to be happier in life than you ever imagined you could be, and enjoy life to the fullest!
Let’s dive into some details you can practice to create happiness
1. This moment is all you have
Stop thinking about the past or worrying about the future; focus on the present and only today.
You can’t control what will happen in two hours: Enjoy the little details of your day, like having a perfect cup of coffee, talking to your family, and spending the day with ease.
The only time is where happiness is: how happy you are in that depends on you!
2. Be grateful for every second
If you find it difficult to “enjoy the moment,” focus on giving thanks for what this moment represents: good health, a roof over your head, a sense of your spirituality, an exciting date to look forward to …
Thank every moment, that will attract more good things to come!
3. Focus on your “happy place”
The beach, a quiet room, a concert by your favorite band: choose your own happy place and redirect your energy and perspective to something that makes you feel good!
Your “happy place” can be anything: a person, a place, or a thing that improves the way you feel about yourself.
Visualize being there and enjoy everything it offers. Repeat throughout the day: “I carry love, peace, and kindness with me wherever I go.”
4. Remember that you cannot control much except your thoughts
You cannot control what other people do: do not get attached to what they can or cannot give you since only you can give yourself happiness.
Control your thoughts with affirmations and positive visualizations. “I can create the perfect reality for my life as I see fit, and it looks like this …”
5. Get excited like a young child does
Is life too serious these days? Drop to the ground and imitate what a child looks at and how he sees the world.
Laugh at the things kids do and be silly about it
Try this: Lie on your back outside and gaze at the trees and sky! (The world looks fun from this angle!)
6. Take your dog for a walk (and let him lead!)
Dogs can liven up your mood immediately: take yours for a walk and don’t control it, just let it accompany you for a change.
Track where he’s going and snap photos of him throughout the hike – get out of your own life by looking at his. Do you love a particular flower or are you heading for the hills?
7. Give it your time
Give others time and you will be happy instantly.
Contribute to any cause you are passionate about smile and meet the people you help. Ask questions about their lives and make them feel like they are important.
Focus on the difference you are making in someone’s life and make a monthly commitment (or whatever works with your schedule).
Repeat this statement: “I make a difference in the lives I touch, and they make a difference in mine.”
8. Finger painting
Paint using only your hands.
Follow your instincts and trust the finger painting process – it will allow you to express yourself while combining the perfect variety of colors!
Don’t give yourself “rules” for coloring. Simply slide your hand into the paint and paint as desired.
9. Write your heart
Stress? If it’s because of a particular person (a demanding boss, an insensitive boyfriend/girlfriend, etc.), write a false letter (which you don’t have to send).
Write freely, without reservation on what you have to say.
Don’t censor yourself – the very act of writing can be a great way to purge negative feelings that keep you from being happy.
After writing the letter, read it out and discard it.
10. Learn where you come from
Find someone in your family (an older relative such as a grandparent, uncle or aunt) who can remember memories of their youth or fascinating periods in history.
Learn where you come from and how your family members view things you could never experience. It’s a rich way to find out about yourself and the world.
Get a new perspective by listening to their stories and improve your own happiness and appreciation.
A few last words ...
Happiness is all about the feelings you generate within you. Focus on reconnecting with family members, giving back to your community, and taking the time to get a child’s perspective. When you do, you will find that you have power over your own happiness!
