Day #059: The Happy Way

People sometimes assume that beautiful people must be happy when in reality being happy lets your true beauty shine through.

Happiness is not necessarily getting everything you want. 

“It’s enjoying the little things in life—whether that’s starting to eat healthy or just waking up a little earlier to enjoy more of your day.” —Jane Ko, editor of A Taste of Koko

The point is – we all have a decision to make when it comes to being happy.

You can wake up and choose to have a happy day or you can choose to submit to the everyday drag in which society tells you to live.

You see, if you choose to see the small things, the beautiful things and the things that inspire. Then you will always be happy and even successful.

Taking a positive approach will inspire others to embrace the very same enthusiasm.

Below are 10 ways you can get yourself to a mental state of happiness:

1. Inhale, exhale, repeat.
Breathe. Take a moment and just relax. Let the air flow in and out.
Embrace and really notice the air you breathe. Take note as life is full of it.

2. Chat yourself up.
Challenge yourself, encourage yourself, push yourself.
I’m not saying walk around talking to yourself, but rather spur yourself on.

3. Say thanks.
Be polite, thank people, make them feel welcome and happy.
By sharing the love, the care and manners – happiness is created.
