Appreciating people for what they have done for you helps improve your level of happiness. It strengthens your relationships and draws more positive people to you. Studies have shown that people who show gratitude consistently live a healthier life. They don’t have constant ups and downs in emotions, they sleep well and have fewer health problems.
Sharing what you have with people who cannot afford to own such things not only makes them happy, it also makes the giver happy, abundant and fulfilled. Merely showing simple acts of kindness boosts people’s trust in and love for you. Studies show that those who show kindness felt happier than those who didn't. Having the desire to share your time and resources with others starts with acknowledging and appreciating the positive things you have in your life. When you start practicing gratitude consistently, you’ll naturally want to give more.
of people fail to appreciate the fact that putting other people’s point of view
into consideration keeps them happy. When people discover you understand them,
they become closer and free with you because you make them feel good about
themselves. Making others happy makes you happier indirectly—it’s a beautiful
cycle that keeps on going around. Empathy helps you turn negative characters or
features in a person into positive ones by helping them see new ways of
approaching them in their everyday life.
Are you hopeful? Believing that the best is yet to come brings you joy that no material thing can. Hope regularly relieves the mind of stress, and a mind that’s free from stress makes you happy. Being hopeful creates a vision for the future in which you know that you are living for a purpose, which brings you a wellspring of ongoing joy. When you aspire to great things, you help others do the same.
Savoring the positive is the best way to free the mind from stress. When you continually place your mind on the good things you have achieved, it increases your happiness levels. This boost makes you more hopeful for greater things to come and also inspires you to do more. Savoring the present moment and all that we have in our lives helps us be the happiest and healthiest us we can be.
Improving These 5 Skills To Increase Your Happiness Will Help You To Rewrite The Story Of Your Life
It sounds so easy - and it can be - but sometimes we look at ideas like these and no matter wise they seem, or how obvious ('why didn't I think of that?') and we can truly agree that instilling just one of those tips in our daily life, we're still sitting there thinking, yeah, right, if you only knew my problems.
The truth is all too often those negative thoughts are too strong for us to argue with sometimes. That's part of the secret of the ideas above - if we can actually make ourselves "do" something positive, those negative thoughts and feelings, start to disappear.
That's what personal strength is. Pushing aside how we're feeling when we hear negative thoughts and just doing it anyway. It's not being perfect every day, it's making little bits of effort to improve ourselves and our lives.
You'll soon be there...walking your path on the road to happiness. But if you need some extra help right now (think of it as doing a some laps around the park or 10 push-ups to boost your fitness) then here are a selection of programs that will help you to work on these 5 skills.
