Today we’re checking out the topic of: “How To Be Happy?”

Sometimes there are things in your life that sporadically make you happy right? Like, seeing “so and so” for an couple of hours or listening to that song that reminds you of a happy time … but imagine if you could actually be happier… more often.. and for longer periods.. like always maybe? Would THAT be cool???

Sure… so how about setting up the foundations for making this happen. How would THAT look? How do you do it?

Well, there are five main areas where happiness comes from… so wouldn’t it make sense that if you had all of these five things as foundations in your life… that you’d be happier?

Sure!

How To Be Happy

So… Let’s think of the following five points as bricks in the pyramid of your happiness. The bricks are as follows:

Brick 1: Connection – To other humans, a pet etc.

Brick 2: Be Active – So Exercise

Brick 3: Taking Time Out – To stop and marvel of the wonders of YOUR life (cos irrespective of the crappy day you may be having… there are loads of things that you can be grateful for having)

Brick 4: Learning New Things – Stretching your mind

Brick 5: Give or Contribute – To Others

So, grab yourself a sheet of paper. Along the top write “Connection”, “Exercise”, “Time Out”, “Learning” and “Contribution” and draw a line down the page between each word. Now spend half and hour and write all the ways that you are currently filling each of the categories. Be honest. After you’ve done that… turn the page over… write the same headings at the top of the paper… then write all the ways you can think of to get all the connected, exercise.. etc. They don’t have to cost a lot, remember that. Happiness is not a commodity you buy… it’s a state of being. Seriously, spend some time on this and work out what’s realistic for you. Once you’ve done this exercise you’ll have a clear map that will provide you with ideas of what to do when you wanna bump up your happiness. Yeha! Go you happy bunny you!

Cheers,
