Motivational Monday…Happiness Happens Day
What a perfect day to begin the week! Happiness, in my opinion, doesn’t just happen. Being happy is a choice for us to make…it is a habit we practice…and it is a state that takes nurturing.
“Happiness, in psychology, is a state of emotional well-being that a person experiences either in a narrow sense, when good things happen in a specific moment, or more broadly, as a positive evaluation of one’s life and accomplishments overall—that is, subjective well-being.”
Most of us want to be happy. However, there are some who wait for something to make them happy while others set themselves up to be and find happiness.
I am not always happy but when I find myself sad or upset I remember where I want to be...my happy place... and I get there as quickly as I can.
One thing I’ve done the older that I get is to (when I can) avoid people who are chronically not happy. I also limit my time in situations that tend to drag me down.
|A Happy Place of mine!!!|
What can you do to find YOUR happy place?
What makes me smile and feel joy may be something totally different for you or anyone else. It’s up to you to look for what brings you the greatest joy or gives you a good chuckle.
Need more suggestions for making happiness happen??
~Volunteer at a local organization that helps others (human or the 4 legged kinds)
~Perform a Random act of kindness for someone you know or a stranger
~Make it a point to do something that you know brings a smile to your face
~Avoid any social media that tends to have negativity attached to it
~Call a friend and have coffee or lunch...whatever...just get out!
~Find the good news that’s out there and read it
~Find a photo of a place, event, or person that makes you smile and place it where you have to see it every day.
~Try smiling! You’d be surprised at what a difference that can make
Happiness doesn’t just happen but it can. Surround yourself with things and people that warm your heart. Work past the people, things or situations that can send you down Misery Lane.
Let’s make happiness happen!
