15 Nov Happiness Starts Inside Your Mind
Why is it when we hear a group of people laughing we naturally want to know what is making them laugh? We want some of that happy juice too.
If you notice, young kids tend to laugh a lot. So many things make them laugh and it’s easy for them to be in that joyful energy. That is the key … kids are very present in the moment.
Happiness starts with our thoughts and our perspective. Whatever your mind is focused on is what bubbles up into your entire being. Your smile is a key indicator of your physical happiness level.
To embrace more happiness in your life, focus on what you are thinking about and how those thoughts are making you feel. Then, think about something that makes you really happy … like playing with puppies, or an adventure with your family, or a day at the spa, and visualize that time. Pay attention to the feelings that you have when you are thinking about the great things in your life.
When you are immersed in happy thoughts, it shows on the outside. You resonate at a different frequency and other people are drawn to you. Yes, they want the happy juice too. When you are angry, sad or frustrated … guess what people are drawn to you? Yes, angry, sad and frustrated people who are operating on that frequency.
To bring more happiness into your life, set your intention to focus on the things that bring joy into your life. Feel that happy feeling on the inside and it will show on the outside and you can have a very happy day … everyday!
To help me jot down the Happy Thoughts and to stay true to my intention, I keep a journal using a book called The Happiness Project One-Sentence journal: a Five-Year Record By: Potter Style (yes this is an affiliate link). I have used the journal for many years and it truly helps 🙂
