How do you create happiness? When you feel like things aren’t going your way, and life seems lifeless, filled with negativity and sadness, how can you be happy? And when you feel like things are good, but not spectacularly amazing, how can you be happier?
Here are 5 powerful tips to help you choose happiness:
Meditate. Spend at least a few minutes every morning and every night simply sitting and focusing on the sensations of breathing, or walking back and forth across the room and focusing on the sensations of walking. Whenever you notice that you’ve wandered from your point of focus, notice where you’ve wandered to and bring your attention back to your point of focus. You’ll be more present to all of your experiences throughout the day and really be able to enjoy them to the fullest, and you’ll also sleep better at night, if you do this. So you’ll actually be HERE to be happy!
Focus On What You Want. Give the majority of your attention to the experiences you like and want more of, and to the experiences you imagine and would really like to welcome into your life. Acknowledge anything in your experience that isn’t what you want and redirect your attention to what you’d like instead of this. Whatever you focus on, you will get, so focusing on what you want ensures that this is what you’ll be guided toward and end up with as a result of whatever actions you engage in. And when you’re getting the experiences you actually want, you’ll be happier!
Be Grateful. Take at least a few minutes everyday to acknowledge a few things you’re grateful for. By giving your attention to these and taking time to acknowledge them, you’re letting yourself and the world and everyone around you know that you’d like more of them. So expressing gratitude leads to more reasons to express gratitude, which leads to happiness.
Surround Yourself With Positivity. Read, watch, and listen to positive, inspiring, uplifting books, articles, movies, videos, music, etc., and generally surround yourself with positive experiences. This way, you’ll be focusing more on experiences you want than on experiences you don’t want; so you’ll end up noticing more positive experiences in your life in addition to welcoming in more positive experiences to notice! And when you’re continually having positive, inspiring, uplifting experiences, you’re guaranteed to be happier.
Do What Makes You Happy. If you do what makes you happy, you’ll be happy. How much more straightforward can this be? Even if you have to really challenge yourself to find or remember things that make you happy, it’s worth the effort. When you find or remember something, act on it. You’ll be happier because of it.
