Be weird. Be stupid. Be crazy. Be whatever you want to be because life is too short to be anything other than happy.
Happiness is a choice. It’s staying in the moment. But at times, it gets difficult for people to stay happy or be happy.
This is where habits come to the rescue. If you want to be happy, steal the habits from happy people.
These are simple habits that you can easily adapt
1. They begin their day with gratitude
Gratitude is actually a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets.
Happy people begin their day by counting down their blessings. Counting down things that you already have, is the foundation of abundance.
Appreciate the little things in life so that when GOD gives you big surprises, you can easily handle them.
2. They give charity
In mathematics, we learn that giving away things deducts. But when it comes to giving charity, the more you give, the happier you become.
Compare the lives of happy people and you’ll find one common habit: they give a lot of charity.
Try it out. Whether you are earning $100 a month, $500, or $1,000, give 10% to charity and see how your life improves.
3. They do what they love
Life is too short to do something that you hate, so happy people do what they love.
Each morning they jump from their beds because they have something important to do. A passion, a cause, something that adds value to the lives of other people.
4. They help other people without the intention of getting anything in return
Happy people don’t help people because they want something in return, in fact, they do it because it gives inner peace.
When you help someone and they move closer to their goal or their life becomes a bit better, you succeed.
5. They go with their gut
The gut is the superpower of happy people.
They do things their way which is why they remain happy.
When you come across a decision, go forward with a thing that satisfies you. That brings the best in you. That is an extension of your personality.
6. They leave no regrets
When happy people do and take decisions they love, it leaves no room for regrets.
And before retiring every night, they leave things as they are.
Whatever is done is done, tomorrow is a new day. Start again with a fresh set of eyes.
7. They forgive people fast
The most common habit of people who are happy with their lives is forgiving people quickly.
Things mess up, people make mistakes. But happy people always forgive people and move on.
Forgiveness is directly related to peace. When you forgive people, you give those people a chance to get better. But keep in mind, that forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting.
Happy people remain careful around those people who have wronged them in the past.
8. They take one step forward every day
Happy people understand the power of small things done with great love.
They take one step towards their goal daily. Day by day, they reach closer to their goal. Failure is part of the process. It’s learning. And happy people don’t run away from failure they, do everything they can to improve themselves one step at a time.
9. They journal their thoughts
Writing eliminates negative thoughts. People who have a smile on their faces jot down their thoughts in a journal, which gives them room to think positive things.
To kill negative thoughts, journaling can help enormously.
10. They read before they sleep
The final habit of happy people is they read before they sleep. This gives them a new perspective on things. Gives them hope and helps them heal.
The more you read, the more you know, the more you know, and the more places you go.
Reading helps in gaining experience of a lifetime from the people who have lived a life worth telling about.
