Everybody wants to have a good day every day. We always want to be happy. Most of the time, our mind is like a balloon in the wind, flying with no proper direction.
When things are going our way, we feel happy. But when things go wrong, you feel miserable.
For example, you are forced to work with someone whom you dislike or if something doesn’t go your way, our happy feeling disappears. We cannot control people and circumstances every single day.
Our happiness, unfortunately, is controlled by others. We should stop blaming situations and people for our unhappiness. We have to cultivate happiness from inside our own mind. Read below to see what it takes to lead a Worry-Free Happy Life!

Choose To Be Happy
Happiness is not a feeling or an emotion. It is an attitude towards life. When you wake up in the morning every day, chose to be happy. Happiness is truly a choice of one’s attitude.
So every day when you wake up, make a choice, am I going to be happy today or am I going to be miserable. We are always complaining about everything that we do.
We grumble about the weather, about the job and the list goes on and on. You cannot enjoy your negative emotions and the way you complain.
Life is short so remember let’s live this life happily instead of complaining about various things. You have to promise to yourself that you will stop doing that.
Stop grumbling. Instead of complaining feel grateful about the things you have. This will shift your attention from complaining.
No matter how many times you remember to keep yourself happy, the negative thought will surely come. Now the test is how you are going to overcome that.
Hugging people feels so good. It is actually proven you have to hug 5 people a day. As you are holding the person the exchange of emotions happen and you will feel happier when you give hugs. So hug more people as you can
Express Your Love
Practice expressing your love for other people. We all have an abundance of love within us. So why keep it to oneself. Express it to others. Remember life is short, so express as much as you can.
It will surely make you happy. Just helping your friend is also expressing love. Just practice it and you will feel happy.
Surround Yourself With Positive People
Even if you are the happiest person, if you have negative minded friends, they are going to bring you down. They will try to suck the energy out of you. If you have such friends, eliminate these friendships.
It’s better to be alone than surrounded by negative influences, who don’t add any value to your life. Make the choice to surround yourself with happy & uplifting people.
If you are a kind of friend who motivates others, you will expect the same from your friends.
It is fair only if that feeling is mutual. If you don’t have positive friends in your life, you have to challenge yourself to make positive friends. Go out. Meet new people.
Get their contact number and stay in touch with like-minded people who you can vouch for your happy life.
Read Books & Don’t Watch The News
Read self-help books like positive thinking, etc. Learn anything that makes you happy. Hear spiritual speech on the internet. This will surely make you feel better.
Don’t just read or know about happiness. Start practicing it. The more you practice it, the more your life will be enhanced.
Some people say it’s ignorant if you don’t watch the news. But if something important you must know, you will get to know in this digital world, especially if you are connected on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, etc.
News is somehow the never-ending feed of negativity. So why do you want to watch them and feel miserable?
Meditation And Reflection
What Is The Meaning Of Meditation?
It is the one thing that makes the biggest difference in your life. It makes you feel motivated, energetic and clears your mind from negative thoughts. Meditation will also help you to be more productive.
There are many types of meditation like vipassana meditation, OM meditation, and chakra meditation. Meditation is now scientifically proven to heal & enlighten human beings.
Mediation is not easy. It is hard work. But once you practice daily, you can be free from stress, anxiety, fear, and misery. There is no magic pill available to make you happy. To be happy, you have to turn inward and work upon yourself.
What Is The Meaning Of Reflection?
Reflection has a five-minute journal. It’s like a book that has a specific question and you have to answer those questions every day. It helps you to focus on the positive.
Take 2 and half minutes in the morning, as soon as you wake up and 2 and a half in the night, just before going to bed. Questions like “ what am I grateful for”? are asked in the journal. It will help you to keep the mind clear and you will feel happy.
Are We The Happiest Generation?
No.. What royalty could not afford 100 years ago today average citizen has. We are definitely the most comfortable generation ever on this planet. But are we the most joyful generation?
No.. Science and technology has brought an enormous amount of comfort and conveniences to our life.
Things that we could not imagine just 25 years ago are just a living reality now. But are we more joyful? No. what is the point of all comforts and conveniences when we are not even happy?
If we are not even happy why we are ripping the planet .it is time to look at it.
We don’t know what great things you will do or not. We don’t know whether you will become the richest man or woman in the world or not.
But this one thing you must do to yourself. This one thing is 100% in your hands that you can live here as a joyful human being. This much is possible for every one of us.
Our abilities to fix the world around us subject to various realities. Something works and something doesn’t work because this involves too many forces. Sometimes it falls into place and sometimes it doesn’t.
So choose to be happy.
How To Find Happiness Within Yourself?
Happiness and unhappiness are the states of mind. And therefore the real cause cannot be found outside the mind.
So if we have a peaceful state of mind we will be happy regardless of the people and circumstances. If our mind is not happy then even if we have good circumstances we will find it impossible to be happy.
So in other words, it is not what is happening that is making us happy or unhappy.
How are we going to do this? We can all understand this intellectually. How do we actually cultivate the stable peace of mind that we can rely upon regardless of the external situations?
Don’t Seek Happiness From Others
Do not allow anyone to remote control you. Control your television by remote. Control your cars by remote. Don’t allow anyone to control your emotions.
Happiness shouldn’t be pursued. It is an attitude towards life. Life is meant to be lived joyously.
We are here on this planet for a finite amount of time. Make it a good one.
To know yourself is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Now the truth is not everybody is always happy. People experience all kinds of emotions. Happiness is truly a choice of one’s attitude.
