Let’s just stop and take a moment to breathe. Feeling relaxed? Good, now ask yourself who is standing between you and true happiness? Finding it hard to point it out? The answer is you. Shocked right? Well, it’s because the human mind is hard-wired to oversee its own drawbacks and point finger at others.
Don’t worry you are not alone as the majority of people fail to understand that it is their own mind that is holding them back. With that information in mind, it is best to remember that no matter who you are, where you live, it is your right to be happy. Renowned authors like Jonathan Toussaint emphasised hard on the importance of happiness in their writing. This is why you should pay attention to the following sections:
It is never a good idea to give excuses
Chronic procrastination and making excuses go hand in hand which is why if you want to avoid doing something, you go for the easiest way out – making excuses. No matter how convincing of an excuse you come up with, there is a side of you or rather a small voice in your head that often tells you to stop as these aren’t true, right?
Anyway, if you really want to be happy with yourself and your life, it is time that you stop looking for the easy way out and readily face situations with your chin up. Always remember, it is never too late to start something in your life that is both exciting and challenging at the same time.
Stop dwelling in the past
Every person in this world has a past that, no matter how hard one tries, one can’t change. It is one of the many reasons why people tend to dwell in the past, play the situations over and over again in their minds and punish themselves. They try to come up with situations in their minds and play out the scenes just so that they can get some closure. Most of the time, life doesn’t work that way and a lot of questions go unanswered.
The best way to deal with such scenarios is to accept it bravely and move on. When it comes to matters of the heart, it is advised that you drop your baggage of unresolved relationships and get your life together in minimal time delay given you want to be truly happy. Dwelling in the past never did well to anybody. This is why you should start living in the present and look forward to the future ahead.
It is best to relax, breathe and de-stress
Life is tough and chances are really high that it will put you often in certain situations where you will be compelled to freak out. The best way to tackle such situations is to train your mind and your body. It is best to practice calming your nerves by breathing heavily and deeply when faced with stressful situations if you want to be truly happy. Stressing out over life’s challenges won’t help you in any way. It will only make things much worse than they already are all the while affecting your health negatively.
Be a little crazy, do things that make you happy, avoid looking for approvals. In the end, your journey and your destination should contribute to making yourself happy, not others. On top of that, be sure to follow the information mentioned in this blog for best results.
