How to Change Your Mindset to Achieve Happiness

“Stories you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.”  ― Neil Gaiman, M Is for Magic

It cannot be denied that it is difficult to feel happy everyday as are too busy with hectic schedules, commitments and exhaustion. There are times where we feel that we need to make change in the way we live and take charge. Well, achieving happiness can be easy with these simple changes in the way you set your mind. Take a look below.

1. Smile

Smiling has been shown to reduce stress as well as portraying yourself to others as someone who is open and friendly to be around– so get smiling!

2. Practice Mindfulness
The ancient Buddhist practice based on paying attention to the present in a non-judgmental way is still as relevant today as ever before. Take time to live in the moment and feel that sense of relief.

3. Read more

Reading can improve your vocabulary and open your mind. Whether you enjoy fiction or non- fiction, reading should definitely become a habit. You can obtain information fast and always in the loop. Take some time in a day to read and decompress.

4. Unwind

Don’t feel guilty about crashing in front of the TV or mindlessly browsing the internet sometimes – everybody needs to unwind and be lazy sometimes.

5. Take control
Believe in your ability and make things happen for yourself. Don’t be passive and let life happen to you – take control! You will definitely feel a positive difference every time you wake up in the morning.

6. Get inspired

Find people that inspire you in all walks of life. Learn from them and let them inspire you grow and be happy. Look up to successful individuals who started their success through hardships and make them your role model to follow in life.
