I just wanted to tell you that happiness is a choice. However, it is true that there are moments in our lives when it is difficult to be happy. That said, there are ways to boost your happiness even during difficult times.
Make Peace With Your Past
Many of us have made decisions in our past that we're not pleased with. Some of the best ways to combat those feelings are to look at what you learned from the experience. What did you learn about yourself, what are your strengths and weaknesses? What brings you joy and sadness?
2. Practice Daily Gratitude
Giving thanks daily is a wonderful way to boost your happiness. It forces you to focus on the good you have in life. It forces you to stay present and enjoy life more. Even when you look at those points in life that were not so happy, make a point of seeing what good came out of those moments. Giving thanks for your days will brighten up your life.
3. Don't Compare Yourself With Others
Comparison is a big issue in our society mainly due to social media. Rather than comparing yourself with others, try and celebrate their accomplishments. If someone's post is continuously bothering you, you may want to either mute them or just unfollow them. It's not worth ruining your day over.
One of my favorite classic icons is Audrey Hepburn. I love her timeless style and her kind heart. She loved to eat pasta and was very humble. I named my first born after her.
“Happy girls are the prettiest,” is one of my all-time favorite Audrey Hepburn quotes. It says so much. If we smile and are truly happy, somehow we are just more attractive and confident in ourselves.
Live Happy Challenge
Choose one of the topics to focus on and change. If you need to make peace with your past, in a notebook write down what you learned from it. If you need to be more thankful, in a journal write down 3 things you're grateful for. If you need to stop comparing yourself with others, learn to celebrate others successes or just unfollow those people that make you miserable.
