Many of us are guilty of assuming we'll be happy when we hit milestones; from buying a house to securing a promotion to getting engaged, but positive psychology consultant Casey Paul explains we don't have to wait to be happy.
Casey explains that we can actually make every day happier by making simple tweaks to our daily activities.
"Happiness is not this elusive destination that you will finally 'arrive at' when X, Y, Z happens. So many people see happiness as a place they will get to, imagining it as a future state, achievable only when certain conditions are met."
Casey explains that her clients often name things that are easily achievable, such as spending more time in nature, waking up earlier or seeing friends more. Despite these easy-to-achieve things, Casey says people are still waiting for the perfect time to be happy, rather than making the changes.
She explains that if we start making things we do every day a little bit more magical, we'll automatically live a happier life.
"Instead of waiting to do these things ‘when you’re happy’, if you start doing them now and really embody that version of yourself now then your whole reality will shift quickly," Casey reassures.
"There are things that we do each day in life that may feel like chores, but re-framing them will amp up your happiness. Everyday experiences and ordinary moments can be enriched to elevate your everyday," Casey says.
Hacking your way to happiness means you need to check in with yourself to ensure you are making the moments matter and living like you already have all the happiness you desire.
5 ways to elevate your everyday
Stop rushing through life. Start being proactive with your time and go through your days with more intention and presence, savoring the moments.
“Shifting the mind into lower gear can bring better health, inner calm, enhanced concentration and the ability to think more creatively.”
“The slow philosophy is not about doing everything in tortoise mode. It’s less about the speed and more about investing the right amount of time and attention in the problem so you solve it.“
Clear up your environment, get rid of the clutter and create a beautiful environment at home that inspires you.
“If your house is really a mess and a stranger comes to the door, greet him with, ‘Who could have done this? We have no enemies.’”
Stop waiting for special occasions and celebrations to light the fancy candle, wear your favourite shoes, sip your coffee from a boujee mug, buy the flowers. Make every day a special occasion.
Add positivity boosters to your everyday activities such as showering, driving, cooking, drinking.
You could :
“Oh! Old rubbish! Old letters, old clothes, old objects that one does not want to throw away. How well nature has understood that, every year, she must change her leaves, her flowers, her fruit and her vegetables, and make manure out of the mementos of her year!”
Make boring tasks more engaging by setting up rewards or challenges for yourself. Turn the mundane into a game to make it more fun.
My Personal Opinion is to don't keep us challenging in every next task you doing, don't keep yourself harassing or giving yourself mental torture, understanding that doing less is more, understanding that success is our point of view and success is what we give our fortuning morning sleep to some basic morning study/work routine.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
