3 Ways To Master Your Happiness

 

Hi My Love,

 

Some effective practices we can all do to bring more happiness into our lives. Today you’ll learn 3 Ways to Master Your Happiness.

 

If you’re anything like me, sometimes, staying happy can totally feel like the biggest hurdle to cross. All the unnatural demands we place on ourselves daily, really takes a toll on us. Here’s the thing, you don’t have to get over the hurdle alone. There are tons of tried and true practices out there designed to help you boost your happy endorphins and get you back on track and in balance.  

 

In this exercise, you’re asked to think of three positive things that have happened to you in your day, then reflect, list and write what caused them.

 

Three Happiness Wins

10 – 15 minutes a day for a week or longer

 

The best time to set aside to complete this practice is right before you go to bed each day. You can commit to doing this for a one whole week, but you can also do this for a longer time if you want to.

 

Write down three things that went really well for you that day, and provide an explanation for why they went well.

When you handwrite things, you leave a permanent imprint on your brain allowing it to remember that thing easier, which is very important because it creates a physical record of your items and it will be able to become more of a positive habit sooner than later; this is why thinking about each item in your head is not enough to make it stick.

 

It is absolutely okay to jot down the things that may seem small and not so important, but be reassured that those are the  things that are very important because collectively they add together to make up the bigger picture to bring you true joy (e.g., “my husband made the bed after I left for work today”), but if you have a big win, then jot that down too (e.g., “My boss sat me down today to tell me that my hard work has earned me a big promotion”).

 

As you write, follow these instructions:

ॐ Give the event a title (e.g., “fun-filled lunch with a good friend today.”)

ॐ Write down exactly what happened in as much detail as possible, including what you did or said and, others involved, what they did or said.

ॐ Include how this event made you feel at the time and how this event made you feel later (including now, as you remember it).

ॐ Explain what you think caused this event—why it came to pass.

ॐ It’s best to write freely without stopping to lift your pen until you’re all finished, don’t worry about perfect grammar and spelling. Doing it this way will allow you to write from a mindful and uninterrupted place. Use as much detail as you’d like.

ॐ If you find yourself focusing on negative feelings, refocus your mind on the good event and the positive feelings that came with it. This can take effort, but gets easier with practice and can make a real difference in how you feel. This will connect you to the deeper sources of goodness in your life.

 

Random Acts of Kindness

Based on some controlled testings and research, science proves that when we’re kind to others we actually help with making the world a better place. Another bonus is that we bring immediate happiness into the lives of those who need it the most, which by default brings happiness into our own lives.

 

In this exercise, your aim is to go out into the world and do 3 (big or small) acts of kindness for three random people who you’ve never met before. The trick here is to complete this over the course of one day, then at the end of the day, jot down how you felt after you did each act of kindness right before you go to your bed.

The benefit of doing these acts of kindness is a gigantic one. The act of selfless giving will boost a profound amount of happiness and well-being in the one that is doing the kind act and within the one receiving the kind act.

The time required for this exercise will vary depending on the kind of acts of kindness you’ve chosen to do. It could take you anywhere between several minutes to several hours.

 

Instructions

Pick a day to start this week – there is no better time than the present. Once you’ve picked your start day, go out and pick three random people to perform your acts of kindness on (you can choose to do all three activities on one person, but It’s more fun to spread your net and reach out to more people)—make sure you perform all three acts on three people in one day. Research shows the benefits are the same if the person knows or has no clue you’re doing the kind deeds for them. Evidence shows that you will receive an increase in your attitudes and in your tendencies towards others based on how kind, helpful or selfless you are.

 

The person receiving your random acts of kindness doesn’t have to know that you are doing a kind deed for them, whether the acts are big or small, but it can be more effective if you perform a variety of different acts.

Some examples are:

Number 1Give someone a book you think may help them move through a tough time in their life. Bring your elderly neighbour to the grocery store

Numbers-2 Write a comment on a friends’ blog to help them receive more visibility

 

Number-3Bring a blanket or a warm winter coat and give it to a homeless person

 

Numbers-4Helping a friend move

 

Numbers-5Donate your old clothing that’s still in good shape

 

Numbers-6Feeding someone’s parking meter, or providing a meal to a person in need.

 

Body Awareness: Mindfulness Meditation

 

Time Required

20-40 minutes, three to six days a week for four weeks. Research shows that if we practice any form of meditation for a longer length of time, we’re bound to gain more benefits from it than if they didn’t practice at all.

In this meditation, you’ll be guided to bring your attention into your body and focus on all the different parts, from your toes to the muscles in your face and relieve any tension if any is found. The practice of Mindfulness meditation helps you to develop a mindful awareness of all the sensations happening in your body at any given time. According to some research data, mindfulness meditation practice can help reduce stress, improve well-being, and decrease aches and pains in your body. Tell me, who wouldn’t want to embrace a powerful healing practice like this into their day-to-day wellness routine.

 

After you’ve completed them three, come back and share your experience – I would love to hear your thoughts.

Tell me what you’ve done to bring more happiness to your own life. If you have some useful tips, I would love it if you shared them in the comment section below – Sharing is caring! 🙂

Remember, you’re here to enhance the world with your light, love, and joy, so go out and brighten someone’s world today.

With a heart full of love and tons of gratitude,

    I never thought about having my writing so detailed, I usually just write down whatever comes into my head before bed!

      Hi Taylor,
      Writing down what comes to mind at random can most definitely help, but scientific research has found that the more detailed we are able to get with our thoughts, feeling and desires; the easier it will be for us to pinpoint all of our blocks to eliminate them from our lives for good.
