How do you define happiness? Maybe it’s spending time with loved ones or living a life you’re proud of. We all have different interpretations of happiness, but there is common ground on what makes us feel happy. I’m going to talk about fives areas in your life where you can “happify” (yeah, I went there) your life. You’ll add some bliss in your life knowing that happiness doesn’t have to be a struggle.
Find your bliss:
What do you love to do? This can be in terms of your career or with the hobbies you do everyday. Find what makes you the most happy and spend the rest of your life doing that. Whatever it is (career or not) it should make you want to get up in the morning with a smile on your face. Now go find your bliss!
Cultivate meaningful relationships:
I would rather have five best friends who I can trust my life with rather than have 20 friends who don’t know much about me. I appreciate the people in my life and I’m comfortable with a small friend group. My relationships are meaningful and important, and I wouldn’t change them for the world.
Instead of thinking about the bad things in your life (low-paying job and paying high rent) think about what’s good in your life (you have a job and aren’t homeless). It’s easy to lose sight of positivity, but it’s important to keep life in perspective. You have a lot to be thankful for, so express gratitude.
You know the saying: live, laugh, love? Apply this mantra to your everyday life. If you don’t like your job, quit. Have negative people in your life, get rid of them. Don’t like where you live, move! You deserve a life where you love everything: your job, the people in your life, where you live, etc.
Begin the day with a plan:
People who don’t plan are more stressed. Think about it: you wake up with 24 hours and you have no idea how you’re going to spend it. If you want to feel stress-free and have a productive day, take ten minutes of your morning to plan your to-do list. You’ll get things done and feel accomplished.
