Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. Jim Rohn
6 Habits to increase your happiness
If you feel like you’re in a rut, try something different. Listed below are 6 habits you may or may not be practicing presently. Give them a quick read, and hopefully something here will resonate with you. These habits are something that I personally value however I do need to revisit this list occasionally to realign my mindset. It may be helpful that you create your own list which you can reflect on.
I hope you enjoy!
1. Never ending education
Never stop growing your mind. Educate your self through podcasts, audio-books / books, asking questions and any other means. This will give you a great sense of inner peace knowing you are expanding your knowledge, growing your mind and making progress.
Consistency is key, to so many aspects of life. If you want to achieve anything worth while you’ll likely have to grind it out consistently. Additionally, consistency ensures you’re practicing your positive habits daily. It also creates some predictability in our lives which is important in terms of when you sleep, eat & workout.
3. Keep positive influences near & dear
This one should be on every short list out there – you are most like the people you surround your self with. Keep positive influences in your circle and together you will blossom in life. Surround your self with winners and you’ll be influenced into winning. However the opposite is true too.
4. Refrain from gossip and talking poorly of people
Talking sh*t is a bad look for you. People aren’t dumb; they know it can just as easily come back around and your negative speak someday could be about them. People naturally give a great deal of respect to those who refrain from this habit.
Giving is perhaps the most rewarding aspect of life. And being human, naturally we feel fantastic after helping. It’s contagious too. Getting into the habit of giving back will create a surreal atmosphere in your world.
6. Never take people for granted & let them know
Perhaps not mentioned enough. Write this down and keep it near at all times. Think of the people you love and why, then associate these thoughts with the note. When your relationships get rocky look at the note and remember all the amazing reasons you love this person and remind them.
These are 6 habits which I value, I’m sure we all have slightly different variations of this list. If you’ve created something similar i’d love to check it out. Reach out to me on social media or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to hear from you.
Keep living the good life,
