Becoming Happy

Apr 30, 2008
Living an optimistic life is wonderful. It is actually good for your health. Being happy alters your bodies chemistry and protects you from harmful stress. Stress will increase your chance getting heart disease and cancer. Remaining happy is so important that your life may depend on it. One aspect universal to human experience is change. Change is all around us and happens all the time. This means that however bad the situation, you can find comfort in knowing that things will change.

Another way to live healthy is to express your feelings. The resentment you may feel if you don't express yourself is another form of mental stress so you must tell people what you feel. You don't have to apologise for the way you feel, so don't be afraid to say what's on your mind. People find his kind of honesty endearing. If you feel you may hurt someone else's feelings, just take a moment to think of how you can express your thoughts without causing anyone harm.

Be grateful for what you have. Show appreciation for your friends and family. These are the people who keep you sane. Humans are social animals so your relationships with other people will have an effect on your happiness. Accept them for who they are. Everyone has flaws, so don't let them get in the way of functioning relationships. Accept people for who they are and you will find less conflict in your life.

Happiness is really a choice. The way you look at the world will effect how you feel. Choosing and enforcing a positive outlook on your life will help you to become content. When a negative thought enters your mind, either question it to see what the cause of it is, or block it out completely. Negativity always has a cause, and questioning where it comes from in you can give you a better sense of who you are.

Manage your life. Your time is extremely valuable so think about how you spend your day. To live more effectively eliminate what isn't positively contributing to the quality of your lifestyle. For example stop ingesting constant information from the media. The news and most entertainment is designed to arouse your emotions with conflict. While this may be stimulating it is not particularly conducive to a stable, happy mental state.

Laughing is a great way to release tension. Share jokes you like with others. Watch funny films.

Take regular exercise. Your body is designed for constant physical exertion and it is easy to neglect this in the luxury of the modern world. Exercising will chemically make you happier- basically it's a sure bet to happiness. And finally remember to laugh. Whatever your situation, there is always something to laugh about. That's the secret to remaining happy. Laugh and with this advice you'll have your spring back in your step in no time.
