There are many things that make me happy and the most beautiful thing about summe is, that I always make some god research about myself, to find even more clues for inner happiness. It’s easy to assume that things like money and a luxurious lifestyle lead to happiness, but research shows that it’s the more simple experiences—like practicing gratitude or spending time with friends—that promote a sunny outlook.
Expressing gratitude has been shown to do more than improve your mood. The key is to make this a regular habit and to do it with intention. Think about creating a small gratitude ritual. For example, every morning when you have your coffee, try thinking of three things that you appreciate about the previous day. Research has shown that spending money on others makes us happier than spending money on ourselves and doing small acts of kindness increases life satisfaction. Happiness is contagious, so try to surround yourself with positive people and then invest in experiences with them or alone, not objects.
We need social connections with others of our kind. We also need the personal growth that relationships provide which makes us feel fully alive. We are happiest when engaged in activities that make us forget ourselves and lose track of time. Flow can be achieved when making music, gardening, playing with children, practising sports, writing, or even pouring over a spreadsheet. You achieve flow when you enjoy doing what you do best. Refuse to compare yourself with others. Be content you have “enough house” instead of envying your neighbour’s bigger house. If you really have to compare, compare down and not up.
Those who cannot forgive become angry and depressed over time, and suffer poorer health due to the physical reactions to these negative emotions. Give the gift of forgiveness, and you increase your happiness. We cannot be happy unless we determine our own fate and are left to make our own choices. Each of us may need this freedom in varying degrees. Happiness is a simple state of mind and it is ours. Never give the keys of your own happness to somebody else. And here are some three, simple tips:
- If it makes you happy, do more of it
- Do less of the things that make you unhappy
- Change your view about happiness
Enjoy August and never forget to have fun!
