Your thoughts and how you view yourself make the biggest difference in how your body moves and heals. We want you to close your eyes every morning and tell yourself it is going to be ok. Tell yourself you are happy. Let your thoughts help heal your body. Down below we have listed the top 7 happy habits of highly effective people and guess what, they are all geared towards... THINKING HAPPY!
1. Feeling privileged and satisfied to be alive.
Time spent living is time worth appreciating. A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one. (Read Zen and the Art of Happiness.)
2. Believing in the possibility of a better tomorrow.
What you believe determines who you become. If the thoughts running through your mind are pure, positive and empowering, you will create positive and empowering beliefs about yourself and about life. In turn, your actions, habits and daily routines will be a reflection of these thoughts and beliefs.
3. Knowing deep down that every step is worth it.
Through every life experience, especially those that force you to look fear and adversity in the face, you will gain strength, courage and confidence. Stop when you must, take a deep breath and say to yourself, “I am living through this and I am still OK. I can take the next thing that comes my way.”
Every step and experience is what makes you the person you are now. What makes you ALIVE is your willingness to live through today’s challenges and then hold your head up high tomorrow with hope and tenacity.
4. Appreciating the beauty in all the small things.
Rediscover the sensitivity of your childhood eyes. The eyes that saw life as it is – That saw beauty in flowers and rainbows and wild animals. That marveled at fireflies and sunsets and starry nights.
See yourself sitting right where you are, breathing, moving your limbs, and appreciating this chance to experience this moment. If a child can see the beauty in it, why can’t you? (Read Tuesdays with Morrie.)
5. Feeling good enough.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble and reasonable confidence in your own abilities you cannot be effective or happy. Know that you are good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, and strong enough. Do not derive your sense of self-worth from what you own, who you know, where you live or what you look like. Your self-worth is a reflection of who YOU are and how YOU choose to live.
Above all, don’t compare yourself to anyone else. If you somehow feel ‘better’ than someone you’re comparing yourself to, it gives you an unhealthy sense of superiority. If, on the other hand, you feel ‘worse’ than someone you’re comparing yourself to, you usually discredit all of the important progress you’ve made. The bottom line is that the majority of the time this type of social comparison doesn’t stem from a healthy place. If you feel called to compare yourself to someone, compare yourself to an earlier version of yourself.
6. Consciously detaching and living in the present.
The greatest step towards a life of positivity is objectivity – experiencing something fully and then learning to let go and move onward.
Allow yourself to go through every situation fully, for example, a breakup, a loss of a family member, or fear from a deadly illness. If you are going through one of these, let yourself feel and go through the emotions and then say, "I am Ok. I have experienced this. I know what this emotion feels like, and now I need to detach from the emotion and move on with my life."
7. Embracing change.
So many people live within the confines of unhappy situations and yet refuse to take the initiative to change their circumstances. Their comfort zone blinds them from the truth – that nothing is more damaging to the human spirit than a mind that resists progress and change.
All of your personal growth and much of your joy in life will come from your encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater commitment than to embrace an endlessly changing horizon.
