I see and feel by you doing a few of these things will make a more positive year for your life and others as well.
Here is an excerpt from an article at Forbes Magazine with five ways to become a happier person in 2018:
- Practice Gratitude And Optimism. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough,” said American author Melodie Beatty. Cultivating gratitude promotes positivity, happiness and contentment. Celebrating the little joys of life and frequently appreciating the things you have also reduce stress and anxiety. Additionally, when you express gratitude by volunteering or giving back to society in some other way, it instills a sense of purpose in your life. Thus giving a boost to your mood and self-esteem. Similarly, optimism and happiness go hand-in-hand as well. When you choose to have a positive outlook, it becomes harder to get bogged down by the difficulties in life. Staying positive won’t make your problems disappear, but it will surely help you overcome them, effectively. So surround yourself with positive people, practice self-love and avoid negative influences as much as you can.
- Spend Time With Loved Ones. This one is a no-brainer really. Hanging out with your friends and family reduces stress and helps you unwind. It also boosts your morale and makes you feel content. Moreover, if you’re going through a rough patch, sharing your experience with someone helps you release bottled emotions, get a fresh perspective and makes you feel better instantly.
- Create Balance In Life. Don’t get so caught up in the rat-race that you forget to live your life. Sure, work is important but so is your health and your personal life. Prioritize things for better time management and don’t be afraid to say “no.” Overcommitting yourself is not only counterproductive but can mess with your health too. So leave the office on-time and, once you’re done for the day, try not to think about any work-related stuff until the next morning.
- Take Care Of Your Health. The healthier you are, the happier you will be. So ditch junk food, sleep properly and exercise regularly. A balanced diet and quality sleep rejuvenate your mind and body, helping them function smoothly. A healthy lifestyle also elevates mood, boosts productivity, fights anxiety and reduces the risk of depression. Meanwhile, physical exercise triggers the production of endorphins – neurochemicals that stimulate happiness. It also improves focus and helps take the mind off stressful events. If hitting the gym isn’t your “thing,” you can go for other physical activities like biking, power walking, jogging or yoga.
- Organize. Whether it’s physical clutter or virtual junk, clean it up. Clutter causes chaos and confusion which can lead to stress. Organizing things brings orderliness which promotes happiness and productivity. So invest some time in organizing your home and workspace. Assign a proper place to everything. Get rid of all the things you don’t need, donate clothes that don’t fit you anymore and unsubscribe from all those newsletters that you never open. Also, take out some time to review your social media accounts. Remove toxic people/accounts, organize your email and get rid of everything that’s unimportant or unhelpful.
The Dalai Lama has rightly said, “Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions.” Incorporate these simple steps in your life and ring in the new year with happiness and confidence!
