IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
If you're fighting against the current of your life, it will be easy to lose track of your happiness.
When you begin to go with the flow and work with what you’ve been given, you’ll find that you become much happier overall.
Even the most difficult situation has a silver lining. When we fail to recognize the positive aspects of the events that happen in our lives and only focus on the negative outcomes or qualities of a certain person or situation, it makes it easier for sadness and doubt to creep into our lives.
In the areas where you feel as though you are lacking, take some time to figure out what may make you feel happier.
If you have moments and area of your life where you feel unfulfilled, or if you are spending time with people that make you less than happy by choice, reduce these tendencies.
We only have so many minutes on this planet. Why waste them being unhappy?
Self-care is the practice of taking part in activities that help you to mentally recharge.
It is one of the most important things to do to stay happy and maintain your overall mental health.
A slow or stagnant lifestyle can quickly become boring and unsatisfying.
You should always be seeking out new experiences to learn more about the world around you and to discover new passions and inspiring people.
Goals give you purpose and motivation to live through each day doing what it is that will make you happy.
There is nothing quite like setting a goal and successfully following through on it. In fact, this is one of the main confidence-building methods recommended for those who are trying to work through their depression.
For the practice of gratitude, start by writing down the things you are grateful for daily. Grab a journal and write down three things each day that you are grateful for.
Your perspective will begin to shift and you will begin looking for the positive rather than focusing on the negative.
Take the opportunity and make a major difference in someone’s day. It will have a big impact on your happiness.
Helping others will also make you consider all the things in your own life to be grateful for, and again, this gratitude will take you quite far in your pursuit of happiness.

The environment has a large effect on personality and mental health. However, genetics may drive us to extract aspects of the environment that match our actual predispositions.
Genes and the environment work together as a dynamic system. Because of that, you can always change it through psychological therapies that can teach you techniques to cope.
Shyness in itself is quite common and normal, but it can become a problem if it develops into social anxiety where you avoid things that need to be done. You might not be able to talk to people at work or have difficulties socializing.

The treatment for anxiety disorders involves intentionally approaching the feared situation without the safety behaviours.
It teaches us that anxiety does not last indefinitely but wanes over time. The urge to use the safety behaviors also decrease. We learn that our feared outcomes are unlikely to happen or that we can tolerate this uncertainty.
It is argued that safety behaviors need to be gradually reduced over time and not be eliminated all at once.
A study suggests that people may benefit from exposure therapy even if they do not eliminate all their safety behaviours at once. Continued use of unnecessary aids may prevent individuals from learning that they don't have to rely on safety behaviors.
