happy

Even the slightest change of perspective can raise your vibration and increase the feelings of happiness. These essential 5 tips will help you live a happy life. Are you ready?

1. Don’t go where your thoughts lead you

Negative, fearful thoughts create anxiety and stress which only result in having more negative thoughts. Getting on a downward spiral of unhealthy, negative emotions, will eventually start to dictate your behavior.

Your negative predictions of the future are just mere speculations and worrying about future events will not lower the chances of bad things happening. Wasting your energy on negative thinking drains your capacity to face anything life puts in front of you.  Do you want to live in the state of constant anxiety? When you notice the trail of negative thoughts swirling around your mind, just let them be, and let them pass without following them. Replace them with a positive one, focus on your breath and engage your senses with present sensations surrounding you at that moment.

When you notice the trail of negative thoughts swirling around your mind, just let them be, and let them pass without following them. Replace them with positive ones, focus on your breath and engage all your senses. Just breathe.

2. Give instead of waiting to get

When you want something, the quickest way to get it is to be the first one to give it away.

If you crave love, try giving it away first, to yourself and then anybody else. If you want more money, try spending it more with joy. If you want people to be kinder to you, be kind to yourself first. If you want an amazing partner, try being one to yourself first.

Like attracts like, and the more you attune yourself to certain things the more likely is that they will come your way. As they say: “By clenching money in your hand none of it can go out, but none can come in either”. Once you open your heart, life can freely flow through you and bring you all you desire.

By giving, you are opening the doors to receiving.

3. Stop doing what you don’t like

Stop spending time with people whose company you don’t enjoy. Stop doing things you don’t enjoy doing just because it is expected of you. Stop being the person that you don’t like. Be brave and stop wasting your life on things then don’t bring you joy.

Next time you are facing a choice ask yourself: “Is this something I want to do?” or “What do I want at this moment?”

4. Start living your life

“Life waits for no one” not even for you, despite the fact that you believe that you have some exclusive rights to it.

Stop postponing your life, your dreams, and aspirations. Don’t wait for some future event or special circumstances to start living your life. Do more of what makes you happy; enjoy the little things and do things that fill your heart with joy. Your life is here and now and while you wait it is passing by. Grab it, feel it, live it! Start participating in your life, be present, and take charge.

5. You are in charge

The most important thing you have to realize is that you are in charge of yourself and your life. You’re the one making the moves. Take responsibility. Stop blaming circumstances, parents and other people.  You are the one who calls the shots. You are the one who has a choice to see the glass as half full or half empty.

Stand up straight, hold your head up high and chose to be happy. Chose to stand by yourself. Own your choices. Take a full ownnership of yourself.
