The Way T0 Happiness!
You are reading this because you want to know how to get Happiness in your life. This blog will show you how to do it in ways that are easy to understand, easy to use and easy to stick with. I guarantee that if you follow the simple ideas and lessons on this blog site you will lift your lifestyle to levels of positivity that you presently think are impossible.
I like to think that a simple way to do it is to plan lots of big enjoyable events into your life and, at the same time to plan an everyday steady flow of medium and small pleasures to indulge yourself with.
This can be a problem. Lots of people, so they tell me, that you can get bogged down with unimportant but downbeat things that just seem to catch you up, and wear you down.
A simple way to increase the Happiness in your life is to cut down on these small irritating things. A lot of the things that make you feel good in everyday life are very ordinary. A sunny day, meeting a friend who is upbeat, finding money in the pocket of something you haven’t worn for a while, a quiet cup of coffee, a good book are small, small things that make you feel good. You can start putting more of these into your life easily, but what do you do about the things that stop your flow? How do you put an end to all those small, stressful, everyday depressing problems? Here is a sound way to do it!
5 Easy Steps To Happiness!
1) Chunk Your Happiness Target Down!
First let me ask you:-
How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time!
When you have a big job to do, you break it down into smaller, easy to handle chunks. So you first of all make a list of all the items that stop you being Happy. Things that you will take out of your life. Things that are causing you Unhappiness. Stop worrying, stop mixing with depressing people, stop substance abuse and stop leading such a depressing lifestyle, etc, etc. The list can be as long as you like. Put everything on it. Break some of them into smaller chunks.Make a list of all the depressing people that you want to avoid by name.Make a list of each and every one of the things that you think are causing your depressing lifestyle.Go over the list, make it bigger. And again. This is a journey of self discovery. It could be a turning point in your life. Keep adding to it
2) Keep A Happiness Notebook!
This is a very important part of your plan. It will enable you to know what you are moving away from, what you should be doing right now and where you want to go.It will be a record of how you went from being a deadbeat to a high liver. A lot of very successful people that I have read about and met had this in common. They put a lot of time into keeping a notebook, diary or log. Start today, work on a piece of paper, buy a notebook tomorrow and start using it. I repeat, start today, work on a piece of paper, buy a notebook tomorrow and start using it. That notebook is like a car, sometimes a bit of a nuisance but that notebook, just like a car, will help you to get to where you want to go, quickly and easily. DO IT!
What do you put in your Happiness Notebook?
First you have the list(s) mentioned in 1) above. Then you make a shorter list of all of the items on it that would make important differences in your life. Study them.
4) Nice And Easy Does It!
After studying the list carefully, pick which one of the important ones would be the EASIEST to stick with. Study this list and pick which one of these is the easiest of them to do. This is the one and only one that you will be working on at present. Don’t try to be clever! Chunk this down even more by writing down when, where and how often you will be doing or stopping doing this. Perhaps you can chunk this part down some more i.e just doing it at certain times, in certain places and certain number of times.
Please take note, this is very important, the whole point is to make this part EASY. You must start off at a level that is easy.
If you want to start running marathons, you do not go in for a marathon tomorrow.
You start by running around the block first. Then, as you get stronger…….
Getting a happier lifestyle is a complicated procedure. It shouldn’t be, but sometimes at the beginning, it can be. You must start it off simple and easy. When you have some experience, when you have had some success, then you can go for the big ones! LOL.
Don’t worry, you will have a lot of fun when you get started. Just imagine how much you will have when you are up and running for a while.
Start working on this area NOW! As I said above, start today, work on a piece of paper, buy a notebook tomorrow and start using it.
5) The Next Happiness Target!
Keep working on this area until you think that you have mastered it. Then, and only then, pick the next one of the items on your list that would make important differences in your Happiness. Again look for the easiest to do. Start working with this one.
