Let me ask you a question: Are you happy?
In our today’s hectic world full of pressure, influences and continuous input from our smartphones we often get lost and just don’t feel happy anymore. Can you relate? Then we have three tips for you to just stop and reenergize with yourself again and become h-a-p-p-y again.
Meditation is the best way to calm your mind, release stress, sleep better and be more energized. It is so simple. But sometimes the most simple things are the best. If you are new to meditation or you don’t know where to start there is a brilliant app called HEADSPACE. The app will start guiding you through your first meditations and with short sessions of 5 to 7 minutes, it is so easy to start. Switch off your mind by meditating and be more focused, happy and balanced.
Start a gratitude journal
Sometimes it is the small things in life that make us happy. But with the busyness of our daily to-do lists and the natural tendency to see the negative things in life we often forget about those small things. To value each and every positive moment in your life, start a gratitude journal. It can be an actual journal, a notebook, an app or simply the notes function on your phone. Sit down each and every evening to write down one thing that you are grateful for that day. From a promotion to a simple vanilla cupcake write down all the things that made you smile and your heart happy. You will see over the next weeks reading back through all those small things will make you happier.
Take time for yourself
Actively take time for yourself. This can be to enjoy a bath, to have a great meal, read a book or to practice yoga. It doesn’t matter what you do just do it without any device: no TV no smartphone and no laptop. Use your time wisely and enjoy being in your own company. You will see just after a few breaks from our busy world just for yourself you don’t want to go without it anymore.
