Are you happy?
Would you like to be happier?
Over these next couple of months, you may be finding that you have even more reasons to be happy, and they are not just the normal things that would have excited you before.
Things in our world have changed considerably and it is the smaller things and experiences you may be finding more happiness in and with. It may well be an internal state of BEing for you now too!
Rather than expecting the ‘outside world’ or your ‘external’ circumstances to bring you happiness (which it won’t in many cases) your focus on what feels good is a massive jumpstart to the new year!
Happiness is a state of mind and this in itself, brings the external factors into play.
Here are 10 Ways to Feel More Happiness:
1. Wake up to something inspirational every day.
Have a piece of music ready to listen to on your phone, a poem, a book, your gratitude journal, a beautiful picture or music. Anything that puts you in a loving, warm state of being. 10 to 30 minutes would be great!
2. Focus is important
Write down a few things you will focus on for the day. Having clarity about the important things will then give you the flow to achieve them, all the while keeping the flow of your day and energy. This in itself will help you maintain a positive and happy outlook rather than feeling swamped or overwhelmed.
3. Connect with nature
Sit and have your tea/coffee without being interrupted if you can (you may have to get up earlier than everyone else). Be in a space where you can connect with nature. Hear the birds, see the trees and sky, feel the sun. These Zen moments bring inner peace and happiness that will carry throughout your day.
4. Create a peaceful, happy atmosphere in your workplace or home
A beautiful, calm atmosphere can be created easily in your home or workspace. This will help you to have the best experience. Burn calming oils such as lavender or sandalwood, put on relaxing or uplifting music (depending on who is listening) and basically set the mood that you want to have. A beautiful vase of flowers sets a wonderful mood as does something of interest such as an inspirational poem, a joke or an event to get excited about.
5. Monitor your thoughts and words.
What you say and think throughout the day are key to having a better, happy day. Only say joyful, positive statements and monitor your thoughts so they are in alignment with your inner peace and joy. Don’t allow anyone else’s thoughts to bring you down or create negativity. If you need to, be by yourself for a few minutes after a negative experience and think about someone you love in your life. This should get your thoughts back to a good place.
6. Value yourself and have a break during the day.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT! If you don’t look after yourself and have a break, you will be less effective in your business and at home. If you are not hungry then at least have a stretch, short walk or sit in the sun!Recharge and energise to get you through the rest of the day with ease and joy.
7. Tidy up at night
By spending 20 – 30 minutes at the end of each day to tidy up and get ready for the next day you will set yourself up to a better start the next morning. A tidy home or office, with your to-do list ready and waiting is a better start to the day than the madness of clutter.
8. Spend quality time with your family/partner/children
It is so important to have quality time with your loved ones at home. Your business, while it may consume a lot of your time, energy and thoughts, is never as important as your family and friends.When you get home-be home in body and mind. Forget about work for a while and concentrate on family. Have fun.
9. Go to bed 1/2 hour earlier than normal and read something educational
Your continuing education and personal development are crucial for a happy life. Happiness comes from within so by studying how to become better from the inside, life will work a lot better and easier for you each day.
10. Write down 5 things you are grateful for today.
At the end of each day, just before you do to sleep, write down 5 things that you are grateful for in your gratitude journal. If you have a partner you could discuss it together instead of writing it. You could also include your children in this when sitting at the table they all have to say what they are grateful for that day. It is a lovely and powerful way to end the day and it puts your thoughts in a good place before sleep, which in turn helps you to wake up with these good thoughts or better!
Happiness is truly a choice. Setting yourself up for the best energy possible daily can help you maintain a calm and happy energy, mind, and life.
I wish you all the best for a great end to this year and a fantastic, happy start to 2021!
