Learning to Be Happy with Yourself
Release the Brain

Release the Brain

Your brain is an amazing instrument that can help you live a richly varied, exciting, happy life. A lot of people think that if they just control what they know and ignore what they don't, they'll limit any possible discomfort. They even try to suppress other people's thinking. These types of behaviors only lead to being miserable because you need to use your brain in order to be happy in life, you can't just stumble around unconsciously and expect great things to come your way.

When you cut off the flow of information to your brain it begins atrophying, like a muscle that's not being used. On the other hand, if you constantly use your brain to learn new things and become more knowledgeable, you become stronger and have more information to effectively deal with the challenges that come your way. The world becomes less scary and you become more confident when you release the power of your brain.

Inner Peace and Being Happy

Inner Peace and Being Happy

A vital element of being happy is to continuously develop your sense of inner peace, which means that you're actively working on healing the difficult issues in your life so that you can become the healthiest you possible. When you have inner peace, you treat yourself and others well and live a life of greater kindness, love and harmony. There's no mystery to feeling peaceful, you either decide that it's important to do or you don't.

When you possess inner peace you will notice that you're calmer and are able to handle anything that comes your way, which in turn will make you much happier. It's the difference between someone who lives life struggling all the time and someone who is healthy and balanced and enjoys the journey. To become more peaceful inside try spending five minutes each day meditating. You don't have to worry about what technique you use or whether you're doing it correctly, just sit alone in a quiet place with no interruptions, close your eyes, and slowly repeat the word "peace" over and over. As you practice being still and present you'll gradually develop inner peace.

How to Become Happy and Positive

How to Become Happy and Positive

Here are some ideas on how to become happy and positive:

Color outside the Lines to Be Happy

Life can seem comfortable if you play it safe and never take a risk but the flip side is that you may not discover all the amazing things you’re capable of doing and enjoying. People color within the lines because they’re afraid to try new things or to take a chance on living their dream lives. An important part of being happy is having the courage to color outside the lines and experience your true self unrestricted and unlimited.

Talk about Difficult Things

A huge number of conflicts, misunderstandings and missed opportunities happen because people don’t talk about things. It’s important to be able to talk about difficult or challenging subjects with the people who mean something to you. The key is to do it kindly, calmly and with the intention of working with the person to make things better. You’ll both be happy when you can work together to find positive solutions.

Tell the Truth

People who are happy tell the truth. That way they don’t have to remember what they said before or whether what they’re saying now contradicts what they said in the past. Not telling the truth takes a lot of brainpower and memory that you could be using to be happy instead. Also remember that telling the truth doesn’t mean saying rude things and then insisting that you’re just being honest, it means being frank with yourself and making positive decisions about what you’re going to say in the first place.

Get Help If You Need It

You don’t have to suffer alone, it’s normal and beneficial to ask for help if you need it. If you’re having a difficult time coping with life or finding your balance point there are many people out there who can help you move in a positive direction. The key to being happy in life is recognizing when you need help and connecting with someone who can assist you in a productive way. Remember to always keep moving in a direction that honors who you are and helps you learn and grow. The people who will truly help you are those who value the real you and want you to live life based on your own inner voice, not theirs or someone else’s.

Keep Growing

People who say they’ve stopped growing or can’t learn anything else find that they only have one set of ideas or tools to solve the challenges they face. When you’re open to keep growing you continue acquiring and assimilating information to help you live a happy life. Growth is a natural part of life and it’s an ongoing process no matter how old you are.
