Happy New Month Kings and Queens!
I started a piece on Happiness in my last post where I shared my ideas and what I learnt about the concept of happiness. This post is a continuation.
Happiness has been mistaken to mean a couple of things like; Having all the money you could ever want, feeling hyper all the time, refusing to see all the negative stuffs in the world or even as a final destination amongst other things. On the contrary, happiness can be attained by;
– Having new experiences, being of help to others.
– Nurturing healthy relationships.
– Gratitude, Being grateful for what you have.
– Paying attention to things through the usage of your senses (sights, smells, sounds).
– Paying attention to the little details of your experiences.
– Sharing those experiences with someone.
– Linger! Dwell on the moment.
– Spend some time trying to brighten a loved one’s day.
– Appreciate people for what they did to/for you.
– Have a meaningful conversation with a friend.
– Embrace adversity.
– Savor a memory! Close your eyes and relieve the happiest moment of your life.
Lastly, though I’ll encourage you get materials on happiness for more information. But, I’ll like to end this post with why your happiness isn’t just about you and health benefits for happy people;
– Happy people typically have deep relationships with others.
– Happy people are more productive at their jobs.
– Happy people have better immunity and heal faster after injuries.
– Happy people are more likely to be charitable.
– Happy people have lower rate of cardiovascular diseases.
– Happy people are more creative problem solvers.
– Happy people help others and volunteer more.
– Happy people are more likely to have healthy diet and live longer.
