It's rather hard to define happiness. Every individual may perceive it to be something else. Whilst one may think that their happiness is linked to their family and friends, others may see happiness to be something more spiritual. Sometimes we face a time where our happiness is decreasing or non-existent and we may feel as though hiding under sorrow will fix our problems. Instead of hiding, why not try these simple steps to make your day just a little bit happier.
Step number one: Try and focus on your personal well-being before you take on the problems of others. This does not mean that you have to be selfish but instead, be mindful of your own wishes and desires. If you feel as though you would like to stay at home and not go for a night out with your friends, why not just tell them that you would really like some time to yourself.
Step number two: Going to sleep early and waking up early can be very calming to a lot of individuals. Why not try and go for a relaxing shower/ bath with nice calming music. Whilst in the shower/ bath, think about times of happiness. No crying or sorrow in the shower! We are trying to be happier remember? Also, try and listen to music with a good message. This will relieve stress and can cause people in automatically feeling happier.
Step number three: For me, one of the most powerful steps is to always think positively. Just because you are facing a rough patch at this moment does not mean that your whole year needs to be the same. You need to find a way to turn the negative into a positive. For example, if your relationship did not work out and you are heartbroken, you may not see it now but there will be a time where someone will come and appreciate you for everything that you are. Once you reach that time you will probably ask yourself why you were so sad about your previous relationship.
Be happy in the now. Do not wait until you are married, until you graduated, or until something desirable happens before you let yourself experience happiness. Do not let people take away your happiness and do not follow the crowd. Be happy with you and once you've reached that stage your life will be so much better than it ever was.
Proverbs 16:20 - He that handles a matter wisely shall find good: and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
