Would you like to be a Happier person?
Then you are in the right place!
Here are 14 keys to happiness and to a Happy life.
#1 WE ARE IN CHARGE OF OUR HAPPINESS
The first Key to happiness is to realize that we are in charge of our happiness.
Happiness is an inside job, is a product of our minds and we need to work on our happiness every day.
Only You can Make You Happy!
Happiness starts with you. Not with your relationships, not with your job, not with your money, but with you.
#2 CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY!
The second key to Happiness is to accept that happiness is a choice, our choice to be Happy no matter what life presents to us.
Happiness is a way of living.
Remember: Happy people don’t have the best of everything , they choose to make the best of everything.
#3 HAVE THE RIGHT ATTITUDES!
Happiness is an attitude of mind, Happy people focus on what they have, unhappy people focus on what’s missing.
“Happiness is an attitude of mind, born of the simple determination to be happy under all outward circumstances.” J. Donald Walters
“Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.” Dale Carnegie
Remember: Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
#4 HAPPINESS IS SIMPLY A MENTAL STATE
Happiness is simply a mental state of well-being created by positive and good emotions.
“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.” Dada Vaswani
#5 HAVE A POSITIVE MINDSET
If you want to be a happy person you need to create a positive set of mind.
Another key to happiness is to understand the importance of our thoughts. Our Thoughts have the power to shape our lives and also create our Happiness.
But remember: Positive thoughts are not enough. There should also be positive feelings and positive actions.
“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” Marcus Aurelius
#6 BE GRATEFUL
Another important key to our Happiness is Gratitude. Gratitude is the key to Happiness.
We need to be content and happy with what we have while working for what we want.
“Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness.” William E. Gladstone
Remember that: it’s not happiness that brings us gratitude, but it’s gratitude that brings us happiness.
#7 APPRECIATE SIMPLE THINGS
“It’s the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary.” Paulo Coelho
#8 HAVE LOVE IN YOUR LIFE
Love is one of the most powerful forces in the universe and certainly is a must ingredient in our life if we want to be happy.
The first step is to love ourselves, in fact, Happiness is feeling good about who we are.
#9 HAVE A PURPOSE IN LIFE
It Having a purpose in our life gives us direction and focus.
“When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.” Seneca
#10 DO SOMETHING GOOD TO OTHERS
“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” Dalai Lama
Doing something good to others, makes you feel good too.
But remember: If you’re helping someone and expecting something in return, you’re doing business, not kindness.
#11 BE SOCIAL
Surround yourself with positive people and you’ll be a positive person.
Spending time with the right people can help us to learn and grow.
#12 MEDITATE DAILY
Any form of meditation on a daily basis can help clear our mind, be positive and be in control of our thoughts.
#13 LIVE THE PRESENT!
Happiness is in the present moment, the only moment we are alive.
The past is gone, the future is yet to come, let’s live the present.
How can we live the present?
Practicing Mindfulness. Mindfulness can help us to slow down, live our life in full and consequently feel happier.
