My mother has always said happiness is a choice. Sometimes it feels hard to make that choice, especially if you are surrounded by unhappy people. I think that’s why I have always rejected negative people from my circle of friends. It sounds harsh but I knew I did not have the capacity to help them so I focused on making sure the bubble I lived in was a positive one. It helped me see possibilities and potential in life. It made (and continues to make) for a joyful life of promise and potential.
To be happy, you have to focus on self-care. This may mean getting a massage, practicing emotional freedom technique (EFT), practicing daily meditation, yoga, tai chi, etc. Pick something that resonates with you.
Research has shown that tai chi has tons of beneficial psychological impacts, ranging from increased self-esteem to reduced stress, anxiety, and mood disturbances (including depression).
Yoga, laughter, dance, gardening and even music can be fun and effective at lifting your mood. Research has also shown that gardening also decreases the severity of depression and disrupts negative rumination that can keep us in a dark place emotionally.
Finding personal peace is foundational. Then, to maintain that peace while in a union is the advanced level of spiritual growth. This episode we talk about how to maintain your personal happiness while in a marriage.
