Key Ideas

Happiness

It's a pleasurable emotion brought by a state of well-being and contentment. It’s usually accompanied by an attachment to an idea, a destination or experience. It often weighs profoundly heavier on our subconscious. 

Happiness Is a Destination; Joy An Attitude

The vision of the life you desire is a destination you shouldn’t ignore as it’s key to understanding your happy place.

If happiness is the destination, joy is the milestone that leads there. Joy comes and passes through without the heaviness of it being a “final destination” because joy is an attitude.

Practicing Gratitude

Gratitude is a way of seeing the joy in the little things and can be practiced with methods like journaling or subtracting. The more you practice gratitude, the easier it will be to see the simple joys in your everyday life.

Instead of overwhelming yourself by always looking at the bigger picture and the negatives of life, look at the small things that impact your world and imagine how life would be without them.

Joy, Happiness And Control

Living means learning how to navigate through life even when we are not completely in control.

When it comes to happiness, we sometimes feel we need a particular thing to be happy. But be it a material or an emotional need, we can always find joy even while it is unfulfilled.

Reducing Social Media
  • Check social media sites just twice a day. Once mid-morning, so you’re not starting your day with social media, and again late afternoon.
  • Keep a maximum of two portals of instant messaging that friends and colleagues can contact you on.
  • Choose those you ‘follow’ or who appear in your feed wisely. Opt for those who inspire you, not those who bring you down.
Cultivating Gratitude

Cultivate gratitude wherever possible, even for the things that challenge you, as these help you to grow and build strength. Journaling can help you do that:

  • At the end of each day, write 10 things that you are grateful for that day.
  • Celebrate and recognize them.
  • Soon you will see running themes and will be able to make them happen more often.

Finding Joy

Happiness lies on transitory things, so simplify your life and possessions to get a clearer path to a better internal life. When stuff, people, and the problems they bring fall away, the resulting stillness allows you to find the self-sufficient joy that resides inside.

Joy comes when you make peace with who you are, where you are and why you are. When you need nothing but your truth to bring peace, then you have settled into unshakable abiding joy.
