For the past few weeks I have been feeling not quite my happy self and I had to know what was causing me to feel out of sorts. I asked around and several people said to me “you have to learn how to make myself happy in minutes” by exercising, call a friend, jot down 3 things you are grateful for and set an intention for your day.
My response was I take the kids to school, cook, clean and do all the things necessary to keep a happy home, but some how that was not enough for me. I was told to do aerobic exercise, call a friend, jot down 3 things you are grateful for in your life, and set an intention for your day. The same things I was told prior.
The strategies above were told to me, I on the other hand added my own… singing which lifted me up so high. I felt happier than I ever did before.
Singing lifts me up every time I feel down but I thought that in order to be happy like most people, I needed to do something bold. That is not the case at all. I needed some nourishment to energize me to live a happy life.
Doing aerobic exercise on a consistent basis does leave a person feeling positive at a time when you need it the most.
Calling a good friend can indeed give you happiness and better health. Conversing with an old friend can have long lasting positive effect to the point of increasing your energy and raising your motivation.
Many people keep a journal to jot down the things they are most grateful . By identifying 3 things has shown to provide a long lasting effect on one’s happiness.
Set a daily intention to help guide your day as you sit in the driver’s seat where you can conscious decisions, rather than just reacting to demands.
