Find Happiness In The New Year

30.12.15


Its never too early to start planning for the new year, what better way to start thinking about the new year than to build happiness and positivity? Rather than just saying you want a certain thing in life...
I love beginnings. Like the start of a new job, a new friendship, a new month, and now, a new year. It’s a time to reflect on the good and bad that has happened, and be able to reinvent yourself from it. Everyone has goals to come back stronger in the new year. Some things will take you longer to achieve than others, some things are more important and need to be accomplished first and I believe happiness and positivity plays very important role in life. Yes it is about others too but importantly yourself, if you're not happy how you will make others happy? Did you know that you’re very special? There is no other person in this world like you. Practicing self-love can be challenging for many of us, especially in times when we face serious challenges. Try loving and positive affirmations. Nourish your soul through a love-kindness meditation or spiritual practices that help you feel compassion and love toward yourself. A simple way to get started is beginning your day by telling yourself something really positive – anything that will make you smile.
The mental and physical benefits of following a healthy lifestyle are significant, including healthy relationships, happiness, positive attitudes, lower stress levels, etc. Setting specific goals like “go to the gym twice this week” or “do yoga video after work” is much more effective than saying “get healthy” or “lose weight.” Don’t disregard small changes you make towards a healthy lifestyle, they have a greater effect on your mood than you would believe.
Im striving for 2016 to be a year of positivity. Positive thinking is a well-known and successful strategy for improving quality of life and creating happiness. It doesn’t mean I’ll be looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses, but I’m going to allow my mind to focus on strengths and accomplishments, rather than weaknesses and setbacks. This, in turn, opens the mind to opportunity and allows more potential for making progress – leaving less time for feeling down and “stuck”.
Be honest with yourself about what you are good at, what you could add and what you you’re not so good at, write everything down. By identifying your good and bad attributes early on, you can start sharpening your good skills and working on your bad aspects and when you meet a goal always reward yourself, even if it was a small goal. This will boost your motivation.
You are as good as the people you surround yourself with, so be brave enough to let go of those holding you down. Letting go of people who do not nourish your authentic self is an essential part of self-love. Friendships are incredibly important. At certain stages in our lives, friendships are everything to us – the most important thing in our lives. Cultivating lasting, loving friendships takes time and effort and you must choose them wisely. Surround yourself with people who only see the good in you. I’ve realized how important it is to have real friendships, rather than lots of friends.
Simplifying your life means getting rid of many of the things you do so you can spend time with people you love and do the things you love. It means getting rid of the clutter so you are left with only that which gives you value. I could write an entire article dedicated to living simply but I think Im going to end my emotions by simply saying that we have time to take better care of our heart and soul. There is time for a nap or writing and being creative so be at it, "Do what makes you happy"!
