4 Ways to Live Happier With No Strings Attached

How would it feel if you could live happier without more headaches, and complications in life? To manage time more efficiently enabling success in everything you set your mind on doing. For most of us it’s not as complicated as we make it. It is more of a mind-set than some magic formula that will somehow make all our problems go away.

The way we think determines our life, and everything else in-between. If you don’t like your life you can change it at any moment you decide enough is enough. I’m going to shake off my misery, my past, my shame. my regrets, my disappointments, and start a new day with more hope, more gratitude, and more happiness.

Choosing to live happier

From this day forward I choose to live happier regardless of my circumstances. That’s what I mean when I say to change your mind-set. This new way of thinking will begin to heal past pains, and bring in fresh emotions that you have not felt in a long time. It may take some time, but if you have any desire to live happier never give up on yourself, or others. In the darkest moments in life remember ….. Joy comes in the morning ,,,,, gladness will have a new meaning in your heart once you’ve came thus far. Here are 4 uncomplicated ways to live a happier, and a more meaningful life.

ACCEPT WHAT YOU HAVE

Research shows that happy people have modest levels of expectation and aspirations — they want what they can get — while unhappy people never seem to get what they want. They also know how to avoid disappointments and how to generate pleasant surprises. This is because they strive for realistic goals and are happy with their lot. As Dr Jose de Jesus Garcia Vega, of the University of Monterrey, Mexico, confirms, we must accept things as they come.

‘We spend a lot of time complaining about the things that happen to us, but this is a waste of time and effort,’ he says. ‘To be happy, we need to enjoy what we have.’

ENJOY WHAT YOU DO

Happy people do what they enjoy and enjoy what they do — and don’t do it for the money  or glory. There’s no point being stuck in a job you hate, surrounded by unfriendly colleagues just because the money is good — people forget that they are allowed to be happy at work, too. Many spend the best years of their lives trying to make money, sacrificing their health and family in the process, says Dr Garcia Vega. Later, they spend the same money they made working trying to recover their lost health and estranged family.

LIVE FOR TODAY

Don’t dwell on the past, on things that went wrong or previous failures. Similarly, don’t dream about an idealised future that doesn’t exist or worry about what hasn’t happened yet. Happy people live for the now; they have positive mind sets. If you can’t be happy today, what makes you think tomorrow will be different?

CHOOSE HAPPINESS

Don’t be afraid to step back and re-evaluate your goals. Imagine your life as a story that you can edit and revise as you  go along. This kind of flexible approach requires positive thinking and an open mind — you need to actively choose to be happy.

Iceland has the happiest population, while Britain came ninth in a world survey

‘You always have the freedom to choose the manner in which you wish to approach any given situation,’ says Dr Garcia Vega.This theory is backed up by Ingrida Geciene of Vilnius University, Lithuania, who researched the happiness of people in 31 European countries.

She found that ‘voluntarists’ (people who feel they have free choice and complete control over their life) were happier than fatalists (people who think little can be changed by personal intervention).
Luckily for us, Northern European countries contain more voluntarists while Latin European countries such as Spain and Italy have a higher percentage of fatalists.

Final thoughts

To live happier is more about choice than circumstances. We have the power within us to determine how our story will end. Most of us knows deep down that God holds our destiny. But our daily choices have a detrimental effect on our happiness.

We get to decide …. We determine whether we will live happier, or not. And regardless of our age, or challenges we can make positive changes that set us on a new coarse. Open news doors, with new friends ,new resources, and a new attitude fueled with new energy.

When you feel good about your-self you can find your blitz. You can also find out what makes you happy inside. And with all that you’ll finally realize that it’s up to you to live a happier life. Read more: 12 secrets of being happy using research from 100 experts
