A lot of individuals have the misconception that riches and wealth are the only tangible resources able to usher in happiness into our lives. This is wrong and to a large extent, untrue. Although money plays a big part in keeping your mind off problems, there are several other things that have the ability to make you feel good. When you recognize the things that frequently get you excited, you can concentrate on doing these activities more, and set these activities high in your to-do list.
True happiness comes from the heart because that’s where most of our feelings, both positive and negative come from. To live a life full of happiness, you’ll have to substitute the negative feelings in your mind for positive ones. This would essentially make you look forward to a new day, bustling with events that secure your happiness and allow you experience new adventures, positively shocking and funny happenings, and a few low points, which can’t be avoided.
If you want to turn your life around into experiencing several happy and blissful days, you need to understand that both shades of feelings, positive and negative, need to be controlled. Here are a few other tips you can follow to start living a blissful life.
Mind the Words That Come out of Your Mouth
Once you utter words from your mouth, they can never be taken back. A mind that intermittently processes words to be said is highly likely to say all the right stuff. A lot of individuals that live blissful, happy lives understand the importance of holding their tongues in situations they feel talking might escalate an already built-up tension. You have to steer clear of horrible negative words like hateful words and never use them on people both in their presence or absence.
Even if you meet with a nasty person, instead of using words like ‘vile’ or ‘evil’ on the individual, you can settle for ‘not very pleasant’. This type of lifestyle would allow you to endear you to people in your neighbourhood. This works as plus if you’re a naturally kind-hearted person.
Let Go of Your Past
Your experiences in the past are tools that can help you propel yourself into the future. Smart people are highly likely to move on after their past experiences since they realize it can never be wiped off and will always be an irreversible part of the present. The ability to accept your past, learn your lessons and move on, would go a long way to determining how you take control of your present situations.
To move on from traumatic experiences, such as an abusive spouse or partner, take precautions to cut them off from your life not only physically, but digitally. This will ensure that your new life is clear of prompts that will induce further emotional turmoil.
You can also find other friends or relatives going through or about to go through the same experience you’ve had in the past and help them with their trying periods. Your past will play a big role in either building up or diminishing your self-esteem. Harnessing your experiences to enhance your self-esteem would go a long way in helping you lead a happy, blissful life.
Love Your Body
The focus on the body shape and size has been increased in recent times. Everyone wants to keep their bodies toned to look acceptable by other people. Maintaining your body requires you to pay close attention to what your body needs and satisfy it with nutritious foods that provide you with energy and improve your mood. Your body is a big part of being happy through the day and it needs to be filled with numerous vitamins
To keep your body and health in great shape, you’ll need to engage in games and sports to help you look younger. Also, you need to balance your mental needs alongside your physical needs. The state of your mind basically determines your physical appearance.
Mind Your Business
A lot of people like to spend large amounts of time talking about the lives of others. They also love to degrade the subjects of their discussion and make judgements about every action the subject takes, criticize the subject’s lifestyle, and gossip about the subject. This kind of despicable activity ensures one focuses energy on another person’s life.
If you can take your time to analyze your life and solve the problems bothering you instead of dwelling on the actions of other people, you would be able to live a blissful life. Minding your business would give you the ability to live freely without issues from other people, and allow you to relish in life’s adventures.
Be Close to Positive People
There’s a proverb that goes, ‘show me your friend and I’ll tell you who you are’. This gives credence to the fact that your circle of friends largely determines how you think and the way you see the world. Friends mostly have common goals and ambitions. That’s particularly why you need to surround yourself with positive, optimistic people. Being around those that think negatively about every situation would have an adverse impact on your life.
Each person has something they’re great at. If your circle of friends always try to put down your ideas and ambitions and mentally weigh you down from reaching your potential, you need to cut them off. What can help propel you to greater heights are friends who see the good in your ideas, and positively critique them. Friends like these would help you spread your wings and glide along in the journey that’s called life.
A lot of people are usually greedy and even though they have a lot, find it hard to give to those who need. You need to be generous with either your money, time, energy or passion with individuals. Feeling like you’re doing good for people helps to make you happy and fulfilled. In fact, some people make it their life’s ambition to see others happy. Giving money to charities and spending time with people to listen to their problems are actions covered under the umbrella of generosity.
You have the opportunity to improve your life, be happy, and cut off things that make you sad and depressed. You need to keep in mind that those who never give up will eventually get to achieve their goals. The steps to living a blissful, happy life, start with breaking the ice on actions like being generous, minding your business, and letting go of your past.
