The most sought after and desired goal for everyone is achieving happiness in one’s life. Thousands of books and articles have been written on ways to find happiness. Philosophers, down through the ages, have written countless treatises on this subject. Self-happiness is what drives our human spirit. It is the all-encompassing umbrella that takes in the joys of intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual pleasures.
Even though the topic of finding happiness is a very broad and generalized subject, the path to realizing self-joy is very tangible. The secret is to focus. Being able to clear away all the distractions and focus on your personal target is the key to realizing and achieving happiness.
When learning how to find happiness being single, it is important to understand that true happiness is found within you. Everlasting happiness is something that you have access to any moment of any day. It is something that nobody can give you and nobody can take away from you. The following ways To Bring Happiness into Your Life:
1-Surround yourself with good friends.
Good friends help you to remain happy and positive. No, a single person was meant to be alone. Friends remind us of how great we are and tell us about our good qualities. You will find for being part of a group – the feeling of being important and needed by others. With good friends, you are also able to practice other qualities that make you a better person, like kindness, compassion, sacrifice and being a man for others. The Internet has made it simpler to reconnect with family and friends from your past. Whether you last spoke to your friend a month ago or even for decades, it really can be a joyful activity. Take the opportunity to reflect on your friendship and discuss all the good times you had together.
2-Have a healthy mind and body.
The reason is that no one else will care about your health but yourself. “What you eat is what you are” is as true today as when those words were uttered a long time ago. A healthy and happy person will enjoy life a lot more than one who is forever ‘sickly,’ but does nothing about improving their health and state of fitness. Exercise and a lean diet is the solution to many of the weight problems that people have today. However, they would prefer to take a shortcut and ingest bottles of pills, plus a medley of exotic potions for faster results at the risk of damaging their health, rather than improving it. By taking care of your body, it means you are healthy. Exercise releases endorphins into your system which enhances one’s happiness. When you feel good physically, you can’t help but be happy. And there is also truth to the saying that some illnesses are psychosomatic – they are caused by negative thoughts and extreme feelings of unhappiness and discontent. Take care of your body, and find that happiness follows. Having a healthy mind, on the other hand, means engulfing your mind with positive thoughts and information. The people who think non-stop about all the pain and hurt they have felt in the past have low chances of being truly happy. Instead, focus on positive mind-enhancing thoughts.
3-Turn a Negative to a Positive
Point-of-view is everything. When we repeatedly tell ourselves negative stories about our lives, our world view becomes negative and downright dismal. Choose a task you need to do today, but that you are not happy about doing. Choose something that you do not like, but that you know is for the greater benefit of yourself or others. Take the negative phrase you usually say to yourself about this event, and change it to the opposite. Before you begin the task, take a deep breath and repeat this three times to yourself. Stay focused in this positive energy and return to repeating your positive attitude whenever you feel yourself slipping back into negativity.
4-Love your life for whatever small or big it is.
Envy no one, or possessions they might have. Some people have great wealth, but no kindness and compassion at all for other people. If you add up all your talents, traits, and virtues, you’ll find that there is a “great person” there; but, first, learn to appreciate yourself for who you are, and regret not what you wish you were.
5- Learn to be satisfied with what you have.
Among all the things listed here, I feel this is the core to one’s happiness. Being dissatisfied and unhappy is usually caused by wanting to have what others have. Some want more money, more fame, a higher position, a happy family life, a great husband, or all in all – a better life. It’s okay to have dreams and aspirations, but you must be willing to work hard for them. And in working towards your dreams, you must be happy, to achieve supreme results. Some people, however, choose to be happy and satisfied with what they have – which may be the better way to view life in general. Get rid of envy; it will only extinguish all that joy within you. Start being happy with your blessings, for you are luckier than some other people in the world – you can bet on it.
6-Feel good about yourself.
First, one must realize that no one is perfect – we all have imperfections. The sooner we realize this, the happier we will feel about our uniqueness. We are all given talents and strengths, welcome them as blessings into your life. In the same manner, accept your faults and shortcomings because they are part and parcel of who we are as people. Unhappiness stems from thinking that others are better off than we are. Whatever cards we were dealt with, make the most of it. Be contented with who you are, because you’ll never really know who else is wishing that she could exchange places with you.
7-Face your problems.
Show me, someone who does not have problems – is there such a person? The only person who does not have problems is one who is no longer living. Problems are challenges – they are in our lives to teach us lessons that help us to be stronger. Stop worrying and regretting, and form realistic expectations from life. The sooner we realize that problems are inevitable, the sooner we will feel that there is hope despite the adversities. Whatever we encounter, always think that there is a solution – that’s the key to being happy.
You should enjoy life. The fact is: we can never be happy 100% of the time. Sadness is also part of life. Without sadness, we will never appreciate joy, and without fear, we will never know of courage. Without failure, we will not value success. Learn to enjoy life and all its quirks. Go with the flow, search for adventure, follow your dreams and meet people who will give more meaning to your life. Life is cool. Life is fun, just enjoy life and experience true happiness.
