Happiness can be narrated as emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Sounds awesome, right? So what makes happiness so hard to attain?
One of the common reasons we find it so difficult to find happiness is due to our perception of what it really is. Our ability to be happy depends on how we define it. For many, happiness is interpreted by what has been achieved, what have been accomplished.
How do you define happiness?
Live Our “Best Life. This consists of being the best version of ourselves we can be. It involves self-acceptance and no longer comparing ourselves to others. Living our best life also includes no longer using things to measure our happiness, but focusing on the feeling. Practicing mindfulness can also help us achieve happiness. In doing this we can fully experience the moment and learn to engage with each moment on its terms, taking things as they come. When we are able to accept things for what they are, we can be happier. Gratitude determines our attitude. As we practice gratitude, it eventually becomes second nature. We become able to find the beauty in small things and appreciate all life has to offer.
Learn the art of letting go. When we learn to let go, we find the path to freedom. By learning to let go, we are no longer held captive by our past or lingering negative emotions.
One needs to learn to Smile. Everyone knows a smile is contagious act. If you’re feeling down in the dumps, force a smile and keep smiling. If you don’t give into that feeling of wanting to smile, you will eventually get the giggles from looking so silly.
Do something good for someone else.If you can’t put a smile on your face, put a smile on someone else’s. Doing a good deed will often result in that good, bubbly feeling of joy. When you’ve made someone’s day, how can you avoid a smile?
Do something you enjoy that you haven’t done in a while. Remember that feeling of complete happiness when the wind blows in your face as you swing on a swing, or when you play a good game of baseball, or make a nice batch of cookies? Well, get up and get moving! There is no pick-me-up like doing something pleasurable you haven’t done in a while. Think back to little things that have made you happy and explore those again.
Laugh, laugh, and laugh. Just as a smile is contagious, so is laughter. Watch a funny movie or reminisce about something funny and just laugh. If you can’t think of anything to laugh at, just start laughing and keep thinking. You’re bound to eventually think of something funny or continue laughing at yourself.
We are humans not trees, Problems might occur but how you deal with it is the key. Take life in a jovial way. Time passes by so soon, cherish each and every moment .Don’t crib on history, move ahead with a new day like the blossom of flower! Find happiness in what you have ,not in what you don’t!
