“Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.” – Dale Carnegie
As humans, we tend to go through various emotions in a day. If you are angry one day or spiteful another, it doesn’t make you a bad person – it makes you normal.
In life and business, being a happy soul (not just smiling outside) will create more opportunities and lasting relationships in your life.
If you are looking to have a little more happiness in your life, these four things will assist in your body and mind becoming a more happy being.
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
Not everything will go your way. Everyone will not be nice to you. You won’t always get the promotion you desire. You won’t always stay in that relationship that you thought was so perfect.
But you know what you will get?
Another day alive to start over or try something different. Take every loss as a win and a learning experience. You will over time be angry about issues for a shorter period and eventually not even let it bother you.
Surround Yourself With The Right People
You are who you hang around. You have heard this your entire life. Not only do the people around you reflect how people see you, it also reflects how you see life. If your group is a happy and optimistic group, you will be happy and optimistic yourself. If they are a complaining type of group, you better believe you will be complaining too.
Surround yourself with people who are who you want to become or at least want to become what you want to become as well. It is impossible to stay in a muddy hole and expect to stay clean.
Get Enough Sleep
I don’t know about you, but if I don’t get enough sleep, I am a bad person to deal with. It does not only affect your mood but it also can make you depressed. Your body is a complex figure and different internal parts of your body release various triggers that can affect inside your body and outside as well. That is why some people get over sicknesses by proclaiming to themselves that they are not sick at all!
Ensure that you schedule your life around proper sleeping habits. Take out whatever isn’t necessary for your life and fill it with naps or good long sleep. It is a natural way to feel much better about life.
Yes, you should treat yourself every so often. Nothing is wrong with giving yourself little or big treats for a job well done. Just the fact that you got through a busy week is enough for a treat. We are human and being gifted something lifts our spirits. You are in a world where people are dying every single day. Just to be alive is a blessing. Start counting your blessings and enjoying your life and true happiness will be at your doorstep.
There are a plethora of ways to be truly happy, but these are a good few to start with. Begin utilizing them in your life and take notice at how you begin to feel when you wake up in the mornings. Life gets better when you get better.
Until next time,
Live Long and Prosperous.
