How to Create a Happier You

Have you ever known someone who is just seems to be happy all the time? Maybe you find that just by being around that person it makes you feel happier. Ever find yourself wishing you could be more like that person?

Well, you can be. It's just a matter of changing the way you view yourself and the world around you. The following are a few helpful tips.

* Love yourself. Before you expect other people to love and adore you, it is always you who needs to love yourself first. Make a positive commitment to yourself to learning, work, family, friends, nature, and other worthwhile causes. Take time every now and then to look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself just how wonderful you are. It's important to remind yourself of all that you do in life and what a great person you are. You may not be perfect, but no one is. You are doing the best job you can. So be proud of yourself and let yourself know just how wonderful you are!

* Laugh. Enjoy. Have fun. Looking at the brighter side of life starts with entertainment and pleasure. Laughter is the best medicine! No matter what your troubles may be, a few laughs and giggles can help you throw away the heavy baggage of negative emotions.

* Associate with positive people. In every classroom, work place, or simply anywhere you go where there are groups of people, look for those who are optimistic. There are lots of them out there. Associate with them, hang out, and talk with them. They can help build your self-confidence and self-esteem.

* Be open. We have to accept the fact that we don't know everything. And that we are continuously learning in every place we go, with every person we meet as everyday passes. We should not close our minds to new ideas and information that come our way. Our mind is so spacious that it is impossible to fill it up completely. Thus, we should accept worthy things that may help us become better and brighter people.

* Forgive and forget. Mistakes and failures are the root causes of negative thinking. If we somehow learn to let go of all the pain, agony, and fear we try to keep inside our hearts and minds, then more positive and clear thoughts will be able to be expressed. Forgive yourself and others for making mistakes and forget them.

* Learn from experiences. Learning inside the classroom is different from learning outside it. In school, one learns the lesson first before taking an exam. But in real life, one often takes the test first before learning the lesson. These types of tests in real life are our experiences. If you fail at something or make a mistake, take time to figure out why and learn from it. This will help you to avoid making the same mistake in the future.

* Count your blessings. Focus on what you have rather than what you don't have. Absence of your desires will only bring discontentment and disappointment that will only waste your time. Instead, be thankful and appreciative with all the blessings you do have.

* Kiss your worries goodbye. At the end of every day, before going to sleep, there is no need to keep bad experiences and unhappy moments that happened in the day within you. Let them go-throw them away and kiss them goodbye. As the new day unfolds, new hope and beginnings arise.

By practicing and incorporating the above-mentioned behaviors into your daily life, you can create a much happier you.
