Are you happy?

Are you happy?

Are you happy?

At this exact moment, do you feel satisfied with your life?

Most people won’t know how to answer this question. And I don’t blame them.

We focus so much on reaching happiness we forget to think about what happiness means. So, how could you know when you’re being happy?

What is happiness? (1)

What is happiness? (1)

Listen, I’m not a philosopher. I don’t have any answer to the great questions of humanity.

If I did, I would be a billionaire living my best life on a private boat in the middle of the ocean. (Yes, that’s my billionaire imagery.) But I’m here. I’m writing for you, hoping to improve someone’s life. So I will tell you what happiness is for me. And I hope you can resonate or find your meaning.

For me, being happy is all about the mindset. If you’re happy, you don’t have any worries but your mindset.

You want to do things. You are full of energy. And there’s nothing that can stop you.

1 – The Chit-Chat Necessity

1 – The Chit-Chat Necessity

Laughing is often linked to happiness – and for a good reason. When you laugh, your brain releases painkillers and stress relievers in your blood. So you feel happier.

But how do you laugh more?

You talk and banter with people more.

Going to work has been easy since I can talk and laugh with my colleagues. But I had to become more confident and learn storytelling to do that.

2 – The Comfort Zone Crib (1)

2 – The Comfort Zone Crib (1)

Leaving your comfort zone is exciting. And when people never do it, it becomes a problem.

If you don’t do it, you will never grow. You will never become a better version of yourself. So, what’s even the point?

Yet, even if it has many advantages, leaving the comfort zone is scary.

You will be happy when you reach your goals because of it. But in the meantime, it’s scary. And it would help if you had the safety of your comfort zone.

2 – The Comfort Zone Crib (2)

2 – The Comfort Zone Crib (2)

To live a happier life, I always take some time to stay in my comfort zone in the evening.

I get back home. I prepare something to eat with my girlfriend. And we watch something together on TV.

So find something like that. Find a simple place where you can turn back after a long day of grinding. And you’ll be happy.

3 – The 5-Minutes Breakdown (1)

3 – The 5-Minutes Breakdown (1)

All my life, I struggled to focus on one thing at a time.

I used to switch from one activity to the other. And with my first job, that tendency multiplied.

But there’s one thing my developer job taught me – preparation is everything. So now, I always have a five-minute breakdown before each task to prepare for it.

  • I think about what I have to do and what I need to do. And if something is missing, I get it.
  • I make a fast visualization exercise in which I look at myself doing the work.
  • And then, I take a deep breath and get to work.

Do the same, and you will experience a lot less stress. You will finish your task faster. And you will be happier.

4 – The (Daily) Challenge Mindset (1)

Living life as a daily challenge is fundamental to being happy.

Imagine waking up in the morning and feeling thrilled for the day already. You feel the freshness of the air. And you take your hot coffee, thinking about what you will do in the next 16 hours.

How can you get the best out of them?

How can you stick to your schedule without procrastinating?

4 – The (Daily) Challenge Mindset (2)

5 – The Frail Negativity

5 – The Frail Negativity

Negative emotions are addictive.

Once you get in the negative vortex, there’s no way you’ll get out of it. So be careful how you deal with negativity because it could ruin your day and life.

When I was younger, I had trouble dealing with it. Every time something bad happened, my whole world collapsed. And every misstep was enough to throw me back into the vortex of negative emotions.

But I practiced mindfulness for a while. And it helped me understand the fragility of our emotions.
