“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”
– Denis Waitley
Happiness needs no formal introduction; it is a simple ten-lettered word that refers to the state of being happy. Often, the term “happiness” is interchangeably used with the feeling of contentment, gratitude, pride and even with the rush of positive emotions within our system. Precisely, every time we feel such emotions, we say the words, I am feeling happy today!
Now the question arises, what happiness is all about? Though, people often think that the secret to their happiness lies in the money they make, luxuries they own or even their stature in society. But, the truth is the treasure to our joy lies in the little things we do; each is collectively encompassing our pursuit of happiness. So, without further adieu, let’s directly dive into the little secrets that hold the key to our happiness.
Focus on the Brighter Side
The way a coin has two sides; similarly, our life comprises of both good as well as bad experiences. But, it is totally up to us which part of the coin we want to see and carry with us in the future. Moreover, concentrating on positive thoughts help you grow into a happier person.
Be Creative in Your Pursuit
According to a study conducted by a psychologist in New Zealand, engaging in creative activities can improve our overall well-being and fills our hearts with positive emotions. So, why not engage yourself in more and more activities that bring out the creative person in you!
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
This thought may seem scary, but seldom getting out of your comfort zone to experience new things or even challenging yourself to higher prospects may turn out to be an amazing experience.
The feeling of empathy, as well as gratitude, are the two emotions that make us better human beings. Showing gratitude not only means thanking people who have always been there for us but also appreciating the little things in life and being thankful for all we have. And, practicing this daily will make you more content and happy in the end.
Say No to Excessive Worrying
Excessive worrying about any situation be it of the past, or the present has never let people peacefully achieve their dreams. It only worsens the condition by creating anxiety, and the mind gets into a never-ending spiral of negative thoughts, hence making us unhappy.
Live-in the Moment
History is proof that neither dwelling on the past nor overthinking about the future has done anything significant for us. What we all need to do is live in the moment.
Surround yourself with happy people
Feeling are contagious sometimes, so hanging out with happy people instead of gloomy ones, make you a happier person.
Spend more time with nature
Last but not least, mother nature is the answer to almost all our questions. So, spend some time with nature, have enough gratitude for being able to observe the beauty of nature and forget about all your worries.
These simple changes can bring about happy changes in the lives of everyone who practices them. So, instead of looking for happiness in different places, create your happiness. Be the creator of your destiny!
