I am a typically a positive person, so it takes a lot for me to be in a bad mood. But how can you keep up this bright outlook everyday? Is being happy the majority of the time even possible?
Here are a few steps that I take to keep up my good attitude. I hope that they help you as well.
1. Be in the Now
We tend to spend too much time dwelling on the past and worrying about the future, making us miss experiencing happiness right now? Plan for the future, learn from the past, live in the present.
2. Clear Your Mind
Today's connected world means we are rarely out of reach and are constantly inundated with information. Give yourself a much needed break from the noise. Take a walk, a nap, or just listen to an old CD you used to love.
3. Accept Yourself
According to the experts, true inner happiness comes from accepting life, its circumstances and who you really are.
4. Make the Most of Life
Happiness comes down to your attitudes and perceptions, which in turn influence how you see and interpret the world around you. You have the power to make yourself happy.
5. Make Others Happy
