Did you desire happiness?
If you say yes your life can expand and deepen. The yes allows you to open up your life to more happiness. I would like to share 5 things that I have said yes to and that have helped me to become happier in my life.
1.Few Minutes of Exercise
Do a few minutes of bodyweight exercises as soon as you wake up every morning. Just a few minutes of pushups, planks and air squats every morning can help you wake up for the day while warding off creeping fat gain. Plus, if you have a busy day ahead of you and want to skip the gym, you can extend this workout to 20–30 minutes.
2. Figure out how to Respond Late to Annoying Statements
Be patient to listen, and if at all you would respond to some annoying statements, take some time to do so. Any time someone on the internet says something that upsets you, wait at least a few hours to respond. Odds are, you won’t even care a few hours later. After following this habit for a few weeks, you’ll notice that even that initial angry reaction isn’t as powerful as it used to be.
3. Set a Positive Expectation of People
When meeting someone new, assume the attitude of “I hope I like you.”. Compare this to the neediness of “I hope you like me,” or the negativity of “I hope you’re not a jerk.” You won’t like everyone, but it pays to set a positive expectation and look for people’s best qualities.
Not clinging to the past and to the hurt that is there but to let it go and look to the now and the future is an essential thing to find more happiness in your life. Forgiving is not always easy and can take time but there are some things that can make it a little easier.
Remind yourself that you forgive for your own benefit. As long as you don’t forgive someone you are linked to that person. Your thoughts will return to the person who wronged you and what he or she did over and over again. The emotional link between the two of you is so strong and inflicts much suffering in you and – as a result of your inner turmoil – most often in other people around you too. When you forgive you do not only release the other person. You set yourself free from all of that agony too.
5. Dress Like The Person You Want To Be
The popular saying; ‘The way you dress is the way you will be addressed’complements a good dress style. Above that, it is important you dress like the person you want to be. Clothing doesn’t just change the way others perceive you; it changes the way you perceive yourself. It changes the way you talk and act. Always dress like the person you want to be, even if you’re not concerned with how others see you.
