We can transform our day before 8:00 am. We normally wake up as employees, not as human beings starting a wonderful day.
Instead of immediately checking our phone notifications or social media, we need to take a minute with ourselves and set our intentions for the day ahead. Instead of being reactive the whole day(as usual), we can decide to be purposeful and craft a beautiful day.
MORE IDEAS FROM I interviewed 500 happy people. Their habits will transform your day
One needs to be aware about what is giving us happiness and what is taking it away from us.
A simple exercise of writing on a notepad the things that make us happy, and the things that don’t, is a good start towards being aware. From this point, we just need to manage our limited time to focus on activities that give us happiness.
Many of the hundreds of self-proclaimed ‘happy’ people interviewed were not having a mainstream, practical work life. They were termed crazy and stupid. The problem was that they had stopped chasing fame or money, and focused on having a beautiful, exciting life where they chose to do what they wanted to do.
The explorative life, where we pursue our natural feelings is the key to happiness.
List down some words that encapsulate the emotions and experiences that we want to feel, defining the push required to achieve a goal.
The words, when revisited and reviewed will shift our thoughts, activities and content towards our main goal. Every action or decision we make should be aligned to the list.
Every second you waste waiting for happiness is a second you could have been using to create it.
The happiest people aren't the luckiest, wealthiest or best-looking; the happiest people are those who make an effort to be happy.
If you want to create your own happiness, you have to start by making it a priority.
We work so hard to avoid letting other people down, but we so often do so at the expense of our own happiness.
