4 Tips to be Happy and Contended
What makes you feel happy and satisfied in life? If you ask me this question, I would say a good, loving and caring family, close friends and well-run relationships bring happiness in life.
- People are either obsessed with what has happened in the past or what will happen in the future whereas life is all about what is happening at the present moment. By constantly thinking about the past or just worrying about the future, they only miss everything that is happening in the present.
Whatever happened to you before, you cannot do anything about it now. You know nothing about the future. So it is advisable to live in the present, enjoy the moment and be happy.
2. Dream about good and positive things in life. Unhappy people are dull people, boring in other words. To dream about the future and opportunities and to work for the realization of those dreams is really what I myself would have on top of my list to be happy. There is nothing better and more satisfying than to slowly but surely get closer and closer to your dream.
Such a dream could be anything. It might be to buy a house and renovate it, to get in shape or anything else for that matter. Only you really want to achieve it. People do not know that they have to make an effort to be happy.
3. Do not be in a bad state of mind and health. Your health is your life and therefore, you have to take care of your health at any cost. Start immediately if you do not do it now. To exercise actually gives happiness.
4. Do not compare yourself with others. Those who compare themselves with others – with colleagues, neighbors, relatives or whoever it is should knock it off immediately. You are unique and your own person and really you do not know a thing about how happy your neighbor is or someone else. You only judge others by what you see of them externally.
But every one of them have their own problems and shortcomings and struggling to deal with it. If you want to compare with somebody, compare yourself with yourself. Be a little better in your approach towards people and things, be a little kinder, become a better person in the way you want to be and soon you will be happier than anybody else around you.
