Nowadays we are struggling to find joy in our everyday life, We wake up, go to work, head to the gym, eat our meal, do what we need to do during the day. Then we go home eat dinner, go to sleep. Then we repeat again tomorrow. But how many of us are are really happy? We are all living in a routine, is so easy to forget we aren't machine. We have feelings, we need to look after ME.
1. STOP waiting to be happy.
There are always fresh opportunities to be happy. Sometimes it's right in front of you. For whatever reason, you are unable to shift your focus to notice and appreciate it.
Regardless of what is going around you, you can feel happier, be productive, attract success and enjoy yourself during the process. When you shift your focus and the way you think, your perspective changes. When shift happens, your life changes.
2. CREATE your SELF-CARE Routine.
Hit the reset button. We are all need to do it once in awhile, Taking a timeout to give yourself a moment of respite or relaxation or indulgence is only part of the battle.
One of the surest ways to let that self-care time shine is to make sure you’re not stressing about miscellaneous, small-ball to-do’s while you are trying to checkout. Get yourself sorted so that your “me time” can be as effective as possible.
3. APPRECIATE the SMALL Things
Those small things or moment that often go unnoticed or unappreciated because we think they are either insignificant or we take them for granted because we live in a culture that celebrates big accomplishment. But what if we made it a habit to embrace and celebrate the small things? Real life is happening all around us while we are waiting for the big thing we hope is going to give us some sort of inner peace, contentment or joy. The truth is that often the things that matter most are the small ones.
4. SURROUND Yourself with Positive People
One big mistake people make s not realizing that happiness is an individual choice. But every choice is influenced by the people in our lives. If you change your life influencers for the better, you can dramatically increase your chances for happiness and success.
5. LAUGH more
Laughing makes you feel good. You might say, this isn’t so surprising. But try to think about the last time you really laughed - chances are, it may have been some time ago. Preoccupied with all of our grownup responsibilities, we adults just don’t giggle as often as we did when we were kids.
We should, though! Laughing has been shown to reduce stress, enhance immunity, improve blood flow and strengthen relationship.
