Everybody’s aim should be to lead a happier life. We feel like there is just so much negativity going on in the world, that’s time for some good to be injected. But, part of the reason why our lives might not be as happy as we would like, is because we don’t do enough to change our own outcomes. If we put more effort and energy into making a positive life for ourselves, there’s no telling what type of life we can lead. If you feel like you’re so bogged down that you’re going to struggle to find your happiness, then it’s time for you to read this article. We’ve got some great tips for you that should help you to change your whole life around, so have a read on to find out more, because a happier life does start here.



Finding Your Purpose

Finding happiness definitely comes with finding your purpose in life. Some people spend their lives on completely the wrong path, because they just don’t do anything to put themselves on the right one. If you feel like you hate your working life, you don’t get to go out much, or you don’t find yourself doing things that you actually find interesting, then you’re definitely not on the right path. But the issue that people have is, they don’t know what is the right decisions to make, and that can often be rather intimidating. Although you might not be on the right path, you might be comfortable with how you are. It’s something you know, and something that’s secure. When you’re not really sure what you want from life, or you find yourself dissociating from your life, then it might be a good idea to speak to a professional. Professionals such as Dr. Kristine Klussman are experts in helping you find a connection with yourself, which can often lead to finding a meaning to your life. If you feel like everything is getting on top of you, then it might be worth you taking some time out, maybe a week off work, so you can fully relax. Sometimes just being on your own, and finding peace in your own company, is enough to help you find your true purpose in life. If you feel like you do need to talk to a professional, make sure that you’re open and honest with how you’re feeling, and what you would most like to achieve in life. They can often guide you down the right path with motivation.

Focus On You

This is kind of similar to finding your purpose in life. Sometimes you just need to take some time to actually focus on you. In a life where we’re so focused on doing things for other people, we often forget that number one is the most important person. Not focusing on ourselves is one of the main reasons that we can feel that feeling of a loss of connection. So, this is our advice. Every evening, find some time to have half an hour to yourself, or even more. Whether it be locking yourself away in your room, going to the gym, or just going for a run. Anything that you enjoy doing, you should be doing. What this gives you chance to do is reflect. It gives you time to relax mentally, and feel physically more calm. We often lose sight of who we are as people when we’re not thinking about ourselves. We can almost guarantee that you’ll feel so much happier if you focus on yourself. Even focusing on things that are related to you, such as your work life, is really important. If you think about how much time you spend in the office, we guarantee that the majority of your waking hours are spent there. If you’re not happy, which a lot of you won’t be, then you need to find a way out. Yes, you can carry on there because you know the role is comfortable, or you could focus on finding something that’s actually going to make you happy, which will in turn make your life so much more enjoyable.

Learn To Love Everyday

Learning to love everyday is so important. We think that with life, it’s easy to take each day for granted. You never know what’s going to be around the corner, and you truly do only get one life to lead. So why are so many of us wasting opportunities to love every day! To do so, you need to try and take every day as it comes. You need to focus on finding the happiness in situations, rather than just focusing on the negatives. So, if we go back to the example of work, try and pick out the positives that you’re getting from it. Have you learnt some new skills? Have you made a lot of friends? That goes for anything else in your life. If you find you’re not happy because you’re always so stressed with money, think about the things you have achieved with the money you’re earning. From the house you might have bought, or your first car that you managed to purchase yourself. If you just try and put a positive spin on everything, we guarantee you’ll find more happiness in life.

Push Yourself To Do New Things

Sometimes, you really need to push yourself to do new things if you want to find some excitement and enjoyment. We’re so bad for saying that we wish we had done certain things, and yet life passes us by without even trying them. Take travelling as an example. The one thing that people seem to get stressed about as they get older is all the missed opportunities with travelling. There’s just so much to see and do out there, you really do need to make the most of your youth and go and explore the world. You don’t want to be filled with regret, you want to be able to look back on life and be filled with the happiness that you might be missing at the minute.

So, we hope that after reading this, you’re going to go down a path that will lead you to happiness. No matter what you do in life always make sure that you’re putting your own happiness first.

I love the ideas in this post so much. Lately, I personally have found myself in a slump. As a mom, its often hard to focus on our selves without feeling guilty. I sat down on evening once the kids were in bed and decided that I will start doing more things for me. Things that make me happy. 

As I have mentioned before in many posts, I am writing a teen fiction novel for my mentee's. I have found that I enjoy being creative and made a board on Pinterest with various writing tips. You can follow it here if you like creative writing. There are some great pins on that board as well as writing prompts. When I am feeling all sorts of different feelings, I take the time to sit down and write. I currently use the notes of my iPhone and upload it to my Cloud. I'll write anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes depending upon how much free time I have. When I am done, I have noticed that I am in a much happier mood too.  

What are some things that you do that make you happier? Leave a comment below. I would love to read them. 

Have a wonderful day.
