How to Increase your Happiness

1. Experiment to find what makes you happy – and then spend time doing more of that!

2. Hang out with people who are usually upbeat as we’re influenced by people that we spend time with.

3. When something good happens, then focus on it. Count your many blessings, and practice thankfulness.

4. Don’t isolate yourself; we’re made to walk through life together. So try and find other people who will love you just for “you”.

5. Savour the moment, and don’t rush ahead. There’s so much to enjoy if we’ll only stop and notice.

6. Don’t just think about yourself; think about the needs of others. Volunteer, share your time, and help others when you can.

7. When you’re working on a task try and get into the flow. It’s so much more productive, energising and rewarding.

8. Keep an eye on your thought patterns, and notice when you tend to be overly negative or critical. When you’re feeling like that, try and challenge your thinking so it’s not so extreme, but is more balanced and objective.

9. Choose to NOT be envious or jealous of others. Instead, take charge of your life and form your own destiny.

10. Think outside the box, and be authentic and creative. You’ll enjoy your life much more if things are new and interesting.

How to Find your Purpose

1. Take time to ponder the questions “What really matters in life; what do I want to have achieved when I look back over my life?”
2. Make time for solitude and silence. Filling every minute makes it hard to listen to our intuition, or that inner guiding voice.
3. Seek out people who inspire you – and then learn from them. There are many people who live inspiring lives. We can learn from their experience, and what they have to share.
4. Consciously monitor your progress. It is easy to slip back into unproductive habits. Hence, we need to be committed to sticking to our plan.
5. Accept that struggles and setbacks will be part of your experience. There will be times when you are tempted to give up and stop trying … but choosing to keep going will lead you to your dreams.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
