12 Ways to Feel Good

Aug 30, 2008
Being happy isn't as hard as it appears to be at times. The first thing you have to do is make a choice. That's right. Decide you want to be happy. Once you make that decision you will find you attract more and more things to be happy about. Just like the snowball of bad things you can create an avalanche of things that feel good.

Here are 12 ways you can get started feelign good. Make sure to keep your eyes open for things to be grateful for while you are out there feeling good.

*Get out there and be with people. Social interaction is a huge part of feeling good. If you can't get out, get online. There are millions of groups online where you can find people who are interested in the same things as you. If you don't know how to find like-minded people in your area jump online and check out meetup dot com. It will give you tons of groups on a million different topics of people who are meeting up in your local area.

*Have an attitude of gratitude. You have so much to be thankful for, whether you can see it right now or not. Taking time to thank those who provide even the smallest thing will help you realize how abundant your life is.

*Watch less news. It's depressing, and filled with nothing but what's wrong in the world. If you must watch TV find a feel good movie or something that makes you laugh. Laughter really is the best medicine.

*Bring sprituality back into your life. Whether that means going to church, or meditating alone being mindful of spirit is a great way to increase your good feelings.

*Manage your time better. Running around feeling like you are always late and there's never enough time is stressful. Stress is the destroyer of feeling good.

*Laugh and laugh vigorously everyday. Heard a good joke? Tell your friends or family about it. As they also say -'Laughter is the best medicine'.

*Communicate your feelings, affections, friendship and passion to people around you.

*Let go of anger and frustration. Holding on to these emotions and the energy involved in them is bad for your health. Instead find ways of expressing them in a way that will not cause more injury or hurt to anyone.

*Working hard brings great personal contentment. It gives a sense of being capable in finishing our tasks. Work on things that you feel are valuable of your time.

*Learning is a joyful exercise. Try and learn something new each day. Learning also makes us increase our horizons.

*Run, jog, walk and do other things that your body was made for. Feel alive.

*Create a vision board. Focusing on the things you love and want in your life will make you feel happy. Especially when you spend some time feeling what it will feel like when you have those things in your life.
