How can we find happiness in our day to day life, though the modern world seems to be very disturbed.....
Finding the way of getting happiness is....
Here are a few tips for increasing happiness in daily life:
Mary Engelbert.... said If you don't like something, Change it: if you cant change it, change the way you think about it....I am sure, you will get happiness.
Just change the way you look at things. Always look at the brighter side. Look at the good and positive side of every situation.
Think of solutions, not problems.
Listen to relaxing, uplifting music.
Watch funny comedies that make you laugh.
Each day, devote some time to reading a funny article or whatever you like...
Whenever you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, start thinking of pleasant things.
Look at what you have done, not at what you have not been able to do.
Each day do something good for yourself. It can be something small, such buying a book, eating something you love, watching you favorite program on TV, going to a movie, or just having a stroll on the beach or try to give a chocolate to a child and get happiness from him...
You can do if you wish.......
Each day do at least one act to make others happy. This can be a kind word, helping your colleagues, stopping your car at the crossroad to let people cross, giving your seat in a bus to someone else, or giving a small present to someone you love. The possibilities are infinite. When you make someone happy, you become happy, and then people try to make you happy.
Always expect happiness.
Do not envy people who are happy. On the contrary, be happy for their happiness.
Make friendship with happy people, and try to learn from them to be happy. Remember, happiness is contagious.
Do your best to stay detached, when things do not proceed as intended and desired. Detachment will help you stay calm and control your moods and reactions. Detachment is not indifference. It is the acceptance of the good and the bad and staying balanced. Detachment has much to do with inner peace, and inner peace is conductive to happiness.
Smile more often. Smile wherever you are.....Happiness is with us and explore the possibilities...
