Simple Ways To Keep Yourself Feeling Happy.
No one else has control or responsibility for your happiness other than you. You’re the keeper of what you let enter your life and how you live each day. It’s time to stop blaming external circumstances for your unhappiness and start doing what it takes to get yourself to a better place.
If happiness is your goal, then you have to make it a priority and be willing to work for it. You can’t wish and hope that your life was different. Take the lead and make this your time when you finally step up and implement some long overdue changes.
Take Care of your Mind, Body & Spirit
Begin your journey by focusing on your needs and putting you first. You’re not going to get very far when you’re constantly attending to others and pushing your self-care aside. This includes doing activities like connecting with your higher power, exercising and pampering yourself by getting your hair done regularly.

Proactively Manage your Stress
Stress is sneaky and will disrupt your life in a heartbeat if you don’t have it under control. Recognize what your triggers are and when it’s time to take a break from your busy schedule. Have tools you use to manage your stress like deep breathing or meditating. Don’t get caught off guard and end up making choices you’ll later regret. Always be proactive and get your worries under control before they start to control you.
Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
Consistently comparing yourself to others will cause you a lot of misery. Instead, focus on gratitude and what you do have in your life. Worry more about yourself and your goals if you want to be happier. Stop wishing your situation were different and take the necessary steps to change it. Put your attention back on you and your family so you can start to enjoy life again and experience joy. The only person you should compare yourself to is you. Focus on what you can be doing better.
Think Before you Speak or Act
It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and take action or speak without thinking. This has the potential to get you in a lot of trouble and cause unwanted damage to relationships, families, and careers. Always think before you act and speak. Confirm with yourself that what you’re about to say and do aligns with your values and that you won’t regret it. Keep in mind that you’re more likely to think before you act when you’re well rested and take care of your health because you’ll be more alert.
Being happier is as simple as making a few changes to how you live. Slow down and put your health and wellbeing first so you can function at your best. Never stop trying because one of these days it’ll all fall into place for you.
