Sometimes we find ourselves guilty by association and therefore if your objective is to be happy and you find that the people you spend most of your time with are doing things that will only keep them in the state of unhappiness, you know what to do. You don’t, but you may have heard that if you can’t change your friends, change your friends. Well, what is it that happy people don’t do. When you are happy, you shine brighter and do you want to shine brighter? I bet you do!

“It’s not happy people who are thankful. It’s thankful people who are happy.” -Unknown


Let’s see how many of your friends or yourself are free of these practices that contribute to unhappiness.

“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” -Oscar Wilde


Some of the things happy people don’t do are:

  1. They don’t compare themselves to other people.
  2. They don’t care about the opinions or about what others think of them.
  3. They don’t bring people down or magnify the bad things in people.
  4. They don’t hold themselves hostage to their past mistakes.
  5. They don’t wait on you to love them before they love themselves.
  6. They don’t ignore their passion for pursuing some other endeavors so they can be accepted by others.
  7. They don’t envy others for what they have, but focus and be grateful for what they have.
  8. They don’t surround themselves with people whose agenda is to talk negatively about others.
  9. They don’t wake up daily and look for all the things that are not going right, to dwell on.
  10. They don’t give up a moment or a chance to make someone happy.
  11. They don’t allow hate to occupy the heart, because before they hate they forgive, and show love to themselves as well as others.

Don’t take what you have for granted.

5 SIMPLE WAYS TO NURTURE YOUR HAPPINESS

HappyForNoReason.Be Happy!

What are you waiting on to be happy? If you have been waiting for or to have certain things before you can be happy, forgive yourself and start being happy now. In fact, the happiest people learn to appreciate what they have. Remember, to be happy is not to be worrying about the things that you don’t have. Worrying breed stress, and when you are stressed, you are less likely to be happy. Well, let’s look at some ways to nurture your happiness.

“Don’t let the silly little things steal your happiness.” -Unknown

  1. Remind yourself of the things you’re grateful for, and the benefit of that is you’ll be more optimistic.
  2. Wear clothes that make you feel good and when you feel good about yourself, you’ll feel better when taking on the things that matter most.
  3. Call a friend who makes you feel happy when you talk and that is not only someone who listens but someone who also give support to your undertaking.
  4. Do something that you really love to do, and that should be daily. Life is short, and you don’t want to put off doing what you love until later because later may become never. Do it now!
  5. Exercise. Yes! It doesn’t have to be strenuous or too challenge, but getting some exercise in can make a lot of difference in how you feel. Exercising is two-fold, it take care of your emotional and physical health.

“Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid and doors will be open where you didn’t know they were going to be.” -Joseph Campbell

We are not going to be able to control everything that happens around us, but we can choose to be happy and remember, no one is in charge of your happiness, that job is yours. Besides, being happy is not necessarily having the best of things, but making the best of those things. Make a promise to yourself to never again allow what you don’t have in life rob you of appreciating life.

Spend time with positive people.
