Wondering why I stress on being happy, every time I share a post?
You should observe that physical and mental health largely depends on our happiness level.
A happy person is more likely to live longer, make great friends and face adverse situations bravely. Links to the researches are not here but based on our experience, we can not deny these results. You meet a cheerful guy and your next few hours get better. Meet a sad fellow and your day will become gloomy. We infer that happiness is transferable, it passes from person to person making this world a better place.
It is important to focus on the happiness level as it not only affects you but also the people around you.
Sharing a few tips that are going to help you in staying happy:)
*Block Negative Thoughts
Negative thoughts are silent killers. When my mind entertains negative thoughts, I lose confidence and find myself unable to do anything productive. My attitude towards life becomes less enthusiastic. We have a solution and can imbibe in our lives with practice. Stop emphasising on these negative thoughts and move towards a happy and healthy life:)
Look around yourself. You are blessed with a beautiful life and the huge world to explore. Your ‘What If’ and ‘What If not’ are snatching your freedom to grow. Life is good, your little effort will make it better. ‘I can do’ is the motto that does wonders. Go for it:)
* Exercise Regularly
We all know that ‘A healthy mind resides in a healthy body’. It is scientifically proven that an active lifestyle keeps the brain active. Brain, that’s the control room of the human body, works best when it gets sufficient supply of oxygen. By exercising, the oxygen supply to the brain is regularised and all parts of our body are coordinated.
* Make Friends
Making friends is healthy! Yes, it is true. Make good friends and learn how to keep them. Your social health improves, you learn to interact and build healthy (and real) emotions. Spending quality time with friends brings out the best in you.
[Over-indulgence is bad and it is relevant in this case also;)]
* Be thankful for what you have
We usually focus on what we don’t have; at the cost of rejecting what we do have. This is silly.
You have a lovely family, a job better than millions, a pleasant personality many people wish for and so on. But! You lament over less salary, petty fights with spouse or your dusky complexion. Think of those who are not gifted with these privileges. A family, a job or a charming persona.
Friends, BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE; the thought definitely has an essence.
*Eat Healthy, sleep sound
“You are what you eat”
Think before biting into that extra cheesy pizza. Each extra cup of coffee you’re gulping down may deplete you of good health. Red meat, alcohol, aerated drinks; reduce their intake and improve your health.
Health is the most precious possession, try not to lose it.
*List your strengths and boost them
Take time out to talk to yourself. Find out where your strengths lie. Work on them. Remember, it’s good to be in a better form of yourself than to become a copy of someone else. Each person is different from another. Stop chasing others and build an image of yourself. Happiness will follow.
*Practice Yoga and Meditation
Yoga and meditation are proven therapies to stay fit and healthy. By practising Yoga asanas, you build a protective castle around yourself. Your immunity and ability to tackle situations improve with these exercises and as a result, you are happy:)
*Make others Happy
The problem with most of the people is that they focus on their own happiness. For them, happiness has a narrow meaning. If they don’t get what they want, they become sad. The narrow approach is the reason why most people feel unhappy, unsatisfied. Increase your happiness range. Be happy in the happiness of the people around you. Magic will happen:)
* Learn to laugh unconditionally
Laughter increases blood circulation, improves the immune system and decreases stress level. In our busy lives, we sometimes forget to laugh. A formal smile is all that we wear to make ‘others comfortable’. Learn to laugh unconditionally. Small children burst into laughter like angels. They don’t have worries to tackle, you may point out. I want to convey the same to all of you. Whatever be your worries, laugh like a pure child at least once a day and see the difference. The difference in your perception of life. The difference in your health. The difference in your presence:)
After all, It Is Happiness That Matters In The End.
