Over the years i learned many mind empowering techniques that no matter what is happening around me it helped me remain in the state of happiness, value life even more and appreciate everything about life including the trigger that has the potential to push me towards negative emotions.
So, i thought to myself why don’t i create a simply plan for you to implement when it happens to you. I have one, and I call it my “happiness plan”, when something happens that causes me to begin to feel some negative emotions or start some negative self talk, I move directly to my happiness plan.
You might wonder what is this? It’s actually a very simple technique that subconsciously we all do it at some point in our lives, it is only a list of things that I can do in any given situation that will lift my spirits and turn me in a positive direction.
Here’s my favourite 4 things.
1. Smile, the old proverbs use it a lot, often they do say, smile breaks the ice, indeed it does, i smile at people I don’t know (as well as people that I do know), it is amazing to observe and receive smile back, we use it in our text messages, we use it every where, do more of it. Smile at yourself in a given situation and see those tensions disappear straight away
2. Do something that you love doing, go for a walk in a park and look, listen, smell and touch as much of nature as you possibly can. You’ll be amazed at how well this works, especially if you can think about how incredibly complex and beautiful it is.
3. I put something funny on TV, or i go to a comedy club, tend to listen to my favourite comedian, who is yours? I usually have a couple of recordings on my iPad. This is an easy one. Go to YouTube and search funny videos, then share your favourite with a friend. This is another easy one.
4. Surround yourself with happy people, we can not change others, although we can change the choice we have to be in others peoples presence or not, identify one friend who always makes you smile, no matter what you do, feel or experience.
Any one of these will break the pattern of negativity and lift your energy.
Be creative, create your plan, have it ready to go, and use as often as you need to, you can never get enough of
