Be as happy as you want
Living a happy, resilient, and optimistic life is wonderful and is also good for your health. Being happy actually protects you from the stresses of life. Stress is linked to leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke.
One of the best things ever said is "The only thing in life that will always remain the same is change," and in our lives, we have the power to make the necessary changes if we want to. Even if we find ourselves in an unbearable situation, we can always find solace in the knowledge that it too will change.
Social networks or relationships are essential to happiness. People are different; accept people for who or what they are; avoid clashes and constant arguments, and let go of all kinds of resentments. If arguments seem unavoidable, still try and make an effort to understand the situation, and you might just get along well with
Happiness is found in everyone; increasing it is a way to make life more wonderful and healthier.
To be happy is relatively easy; just decide to be a happy person. Abraham Lincoln observed that most people can choose most of the time whether to be happy or stressed, relaxed or troubled, bright or dull in their outlook. The decision is simple: choose happiness.
There are several ways in which you can do this.
Being grateful is a great attitude. We have so much to be thankful for. Thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely; thank the cook for a wonderful dinner, and thank the guy who cleans your windows. Also thank the mailman for bringing you your mail, the policeman for making your place safe, and God for keeping you alive.
News is stressful. Get less of it. Some people just can't start their day without their daily dose of news. Try and think about it: 99% of the news we hear or read is bad news. Starting the day with bad news does not seem to be a sensible thing to do.
A religious connection is also recommended. Being part of a religious group with its singing, sacraments, chanting, prayers, and meditations fosters inner peace.
Manage your time. Time is invaluable and too important to waste. Time management can be viewed as a list of rules that involves scheduling, setting goals, planning, creating lists of things to do, and prioritizing. These are the fundamentals of time management that must be understood in order to develop effective personal time management skills. These basic skills can be fine-tuned further to include the finer points of each skill that can give you that extra reserve to get the results you desire.
Laugh heartily every day. Heard a good joke? Tell your friends or family about it. As they also say, "Laughter is the best medicine."
Express your feelings, affections, friendship, and passion to the people around you. They will most likely reciprocate your actions. Try not to keep pent-up anger or frustration inside; this is bad for your health. Instead, find ways of expressing them in a way that will not cause more injury or hurt to anyone.
Working hard brings tremendous personal satisfaction. It gives us the impression that we are capable of completing our tasks. Accomplishments are necessary for all of us; they give us a sense of value. Work on things that you feel is worthy of your time.
Learning is a joyful exercise. Try to learn something new every day. Learning also makes us expand and broaden our horizons. and could also give us more opportunities in the future.
Run, jog, walk, and do other things that your body was made for. Feel alive.
Avoid exposure to negative elements like loud noises, toxins, and hazardous places.
These are the few simple things you can do every day to be happy.
And always remember the quote from Abraham Lincoln: "Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
