Happy Happy People

Happy Happy People

Happiness is not a goal or something to pursue at a later time. Emotional health is a skill to be mastered, not a destination to eventually arrive at.

Being Thankful

Most people are stuck in negativity out of sheer habit and think happiness is just available in small doses, occasionally. To get out of the negative thinking:

  • Start a Gratitude practice, using a journal or a notepad, and note down the things you like about a certain aspect of your life (like your job, for instance).
  • A daily morning routine of noting three specific things that you are grateful for, no matter how small, also helps you push yourself into a positive mindset.

This, in turn, helps in job satisfaction and an overall sense of happiness.
