5 Secrets to Happiness, this title calls attention and generates doubts. Although this is true, the secrets to happiness are constantly surrounding our lives.
To realize them we must concentrate on our daily activities.
Our daily activities are full of human emotions. And our end results are conditioned by them.
In our text on “Emotional Intelligence“, these natural reflexes are seen in our actions.
Similarly, we must generate an environment of peace and positivism. In this way we will make our daily tasks more focused and find the patience we are looking for.
Most of the time we are accelerated and eager to get to do everything we set out to do.
1. Divide your time: How productive are you? (One key for happiness)
We must start our determining our schedules. The most important thing is not to put pressure on ourselves.
In today’s globalized world it is very difficult to keep social networks away from us.
Most people tend to get distracted by things that don’t contribute to our goals. To be able to face this, we must gradually stop what diverts our attention and replace the non productive moments with some reading or physical activity.
This will make the brain work that we do in our activities have a break. Then when we resume our objectives, we will achieve a better efficiency in these.
2. Finding peace is the secret to happiness
Most of the time we find ourselves in moments where our work, hobby or passion loses its essence. This happens when we overload our mind with these activities and it is difficult to find the necessary motivation.
To combat this we must mix our daily routine with other things. Sports, walks or going out of the place where we are are are useful exercises for this.
The key is not to do too much of what we like (in some cases), this will make us lose the desire and taste for our activities.
3. Be nice and you will get what you want
To many people it will seem silly to mix happiness and kindness.
These people might argue that happiness is something of their own and has nothing to do with other individuals.
This is actually very related, because socializing and being kind to others is the key to exchanging ideas, constructive criticism and improving one’s mood.
Human beings are “social beings”, therefore we must respect our nature. By doing so, we will open the door to kindness and other positive dealings with each other.
4. Live every day, don’t let them pass
Something so simple and so important at the same time is to live the time we have in this world.
From a certain point of view we humans set goals and times for everything. This makes things more organized, that is, more manageable.
The long term, the medium term and the short term are visions of time that we must take into account. To take advantage of the time to laugh and be positive. Also to fulfill our dreams and ambitions. All of these points fall into each of these time frames. Thinking big things in the long term, things to be done in a shorter period (medium term) and everything that is daily work in the short term.
In all these moments we must find happiness in any way. This will make us more productive and in a better mood every day.
5. Let things happen as they need to happen
You’ve probably heard of the saying “you did what you should and could”.
This is absolutely true! Sometimes people put themselves in a position of guilt by believing that they didn’t do enough or even that they didn’t do the right thing.
All these conjectures prior to the performance of an action have been thought of by the brain and then executed in the tangible world. If at that moment we considered that the right thing to do was that and we did it, then there is no problem!
Why should we sabotage ourselves? We should do things for our own benefit and without harming others obviously, but we should think that the opinions of others regarding what we do should not influence in any way. Discover your happy side and apply it.
The secrets to happiness are in our minds, it is up to us to discover them.
