Secret to Happiness

  1. Admit your mistakes and stop blaming others for being unhappy. There are times when it is natural to feel sad. We grieve the loss of loved ones, for broken dreams and other meaningful reasons. To me everything that we have now is temporary and although things will never be the same again, there is a future we can shape.
  2. Make someone else happy. Helping others enhances our self-esteem and sense of life purpose; both of which are key factors in increasing our happiness. Make a habit of being considerate and giving to others; it will reward you with an increased happiness set-point.
  3. Be kind and start giving rather than asking. Make it a habit to find reasons to be grateful. Especially when you are feeling down or sad, change your mood by searching for and giving thanks for the good things in your life. Looking for the existing positives will increase your feelings of happiness by putting your focus on the things that bring you joy.
  4. Exercise. I train my mind and body with Pilate. When we move our bodies, positive endorphins are activated and soon we’re feeling better! Spend regular time stretching mindfully and moving; your body and mind will thank you.
  5. Smile more. Our facial expressions influence our moods. When we are frowning, we feel pain deeper and are sadder. Just moving your facial muscles into a smile will trigger an internal process of shifting your mood to a happier one. Soon, you will feel better and the smile will come naturally from within.
  6. Travel. To me travel heal everything. Take many photos as you like. Explore to local ground, walk, talk, behave like locals and learn new culture and languages. Trust me is lot’s fun than having a relationship.
