WHAT is HAPPINESS? And... HOW do we achieve it?
We all want to be happy in life. It's a desire we all share as human beings, however it's the way we define and obtain happiness, that makes us unique from each other.
Now whilst it's important to set goals and intentions for how we want our future to look, we must not forget that happiness is a state of mind, not a goal.
We often spend our lives planning and dreaming about how wonderful our life would be if only we got that promotion, won the lottery, or met the perfect person... and as a result we fail to see how important our life is right now. As Earl Nightingale once wrote:
"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future..."
To help you experience true happiness in the present moment, here are the ABC's of genuine happiness:
Accept your reality.
Be present. Be bold.
Create something exciting.
Drink plenty of water. Dance.
Exercise daily. Eat fresh foods.
Feel your emotions. Face fear.
Go outside and observe nature. Give.
Hug often. Help others.
Ignite your passions.
Jump through your comfort zone.
Kiss passionately. Keep looking forward.
Laugh. Love. Learn to let go.
Meditate daily. Make goals.
Never give up on what you want.
Own a pet. Observe beauty.
Pray. Paint. Play an instrument.
Quit a bad habit. Quiet your mind.
Read. Relax. Reinvent yourself.
Smile. Sleep. Simplify.
Take power naps. Talk wisely.
Unleash your strengths.
Vent. Visualize your dreams.
Walk. Write. Watch the sunset.
Xerox your smiling face.
Yell less. Yield your thoughts.
