Sooner or later, in our lifetime, we are faced with existential questions and questioning. The trials, the unfortunate events, the various irritants which appear on our road have a significant influence on our progress. How to find happiness despite the problems? How to be happy in life? Some human beings have tendencies to happiness; others will need psychological support or medical assistance, during a depression, for example.
Here are some ways to Help us Maintain the Balance of Happiness.
1. Forget the Past to Lead a Happy Life
Living in the moment! At the risk of being saturated by this concept, it is nevertheless more than precious advice. We cannot change anything from the past, often punctuated by unfortunate events that we regret.
Ruminating on these thoughts prevents us from living serenely and positively.
As for the future, we know nothing about it and cannot guarantee it. Living fully in the present moment by accomplishing all the tasks related to it allows us to appreciate life and the riches it offers us.
2. Believe in Yourself
It is not easy to stop seeking the approval of others and to trust your convictions. We want to satisfy everyone for a need for love and fear of rejection. Confidence requires patience and indulgence towards oneself, but when it reached, it becomes an invaluable strength to allow face life positively.
3. Appreciate what Life has to Offer
Nothing is perfect; we all know it. It is beneficial to learn to take advantage of every little moment, to savor every moment.
People who have gone through severe trials opt for this fresh outlook on life. When we’re worried about losing everything, the details become important.
If we are rarely sick, if our relationships with our loved ones are harmonious and if our work satisfies us, we are privileged.
Learning to forgive is an act that frees us from negative feelings that can contaminate our lives. Of course, it is not a question of approving wrongdoing, but instead of understanding it. And the energy expended to nourish dislike towards those who have hurt us is a real poison for the soul. To forgive is to realize that we are all human beings.
5. Exploiting your Talents for Happy Life
The ambition dosed well to succeed is extremely positive because the feeling of accomplishment is satisfying. Exploiting our talents to create becomes a gift for ourselves, a gift that we can share with others.
6. Helping others while Preserving Themselves
It is very pleasing to listen to others, to give them support and sympathy. However, it is essential to protect yourself against the aggressiveness and negativity of the person in distress.
If we become the holder of negative emotions and frustrations of others, we risk carrying this heaviness in us. So is often the case for professionals in the helping relationship who exposed to this kind of situation.
If they don’t preserve themselves, they eventually face depression. You have to learn to be empathetic, to listen while understanding that the problems of others belong to them and that it is up to them to face them.
7. Bring a Positive Outlook on Others
We improve our relationships around us, our family members, and our friends by accepting as they are also appreciating their qualities rather than highlighting their faults.
8. Laugh for Happy Life
When we were children, every occasion was good for laughing. Adult life and its share of stress prevent us today from laughing and even sometimes from smiling.
Several kinds of research demonstrate the beneficial effects of laughter to drive out negative thoughts and counter the consequences of stress. Unlike anxiety, which accelerates the heart rate, laughter triggers more respiratory exchanges, facilitating better oxygenation of the blood.
When we are stressed, our muscles are tense. Laughter causes muscle relaxation in the body as a whole. Researchers seem to say that a giggle is equivalent to ten minutes of complete relaxation!
9. Give to Lead Happy Life
Giving without counting, giving your time, attention, or affection makes you feel good. Helping one’s neighbor without waiting for the return, without calculating, doing it for free with the feeling of duty accomplished brings intense satisfaction.
Many volunteers say they are happy to bring a little happiness to others for the pure pleasure of helping others. Isn’t that the meaning of life? Some specialists even say that turning more towards the other could, in some cases, relieve depression. So, when we give to the next, we would think a little less about our misfortune, and we would find meaning in our life.
10. Request Psychological Support for Happy Life
Some people, despite the various efforts made, such as physical activities, different methods of relaxation and emotional control, do not manage to live positively.
They must then have recourse to external support, in the form of behavioral, analytical,or cognitive psychotherapies. For deep depressions, this support will often have to be accompanied by medication-based treatment ( antidepressants ).
Being positive and living well is also a question of attitude. Our brains allow us to assess events better and generally provide us with the tools to take advantage of all situations.
It only remains to marry all these elements to enjoy what life brings us fully. And if an incident occurs (a puncture, for example), ask yourself how important it will be in one, five, or ten years? You might smile, despite the flat tire!
