How to Be Happy: 15 Ways to Create Happiness in Your Life

How to Be Happy: 15 Ways to Create Happiness in Your Life image
Posted by Joseph on September 28, 2015

Life doesn’t need to be depressing. Come out and find your inner YES GAWD! Everywhere we look there is something to complain about, but the second we stop dwelling on all that crap is the moment we find ourselves.
It’s time to be more positive. There is a happy gene hidden somewhere inside of us waiting to get pulled out, but it never will unless we trigger it. Here’s how:

#1) Stop feeding into bullsh*t because you feel like you have to. No seriously, stop doing it. I know it can be hard saying “no” to people you’ve convinced yourself you need to suck up to, but there’s truly a reason why you feel an urge to do it—because your gut is telling you so. Listen to it and you’ll be so much more aligned in yourself.

#2) Stop doing what you did five years ago expecting the same result. The whole point of life is to evolve; meaning, take what we’ve learned and apply it so we’ll have more clarity and wiggle room to branch out towards new avenues. Start doing that.

#3) Rid yourself of the friends that keep you from doing #2 on this list. There are friends who refuse to grow up, but we hold onto them because of our history. Don’t be scared to peel yourself away. At this point, your investment of time is more valuable than anything else.

#4) Don’t hold back positive feedback because the person isn’t “popular.” When you have a chance to give a genuine compliment or positive enforcement, do it, regardless if the person is a trouble child or black sheep. Trust me, you can use the karma.

#5) If something doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, it’s a red flag you shouldn’t be doing it. Whether it’s a job, boyfriend or circumstance, if it doesn’t feed your value and convinces you of your worth then it’s time to leave.

#6) Reflect on the things you’ve accomplished rather than the things you’ve failed in. Our failures hover over us, and the only way to warn it away is to combat it with flashbacks of our successes. Never let those memories lose grip—holding that award, the feeling you got when you made that deal, when he said “yes.” All the things you’ve WON are what matters.

#7) Once you’ve reflected on your successes, then play this song over and over on repeat:

#8) Do the things you love more than the things you hate. Stop forcing yourself to do the things you hate doing just to “get them done.” If you think about it, they don’t have to get done; you’re just obsessing over it and probably think you don’t deserve to have fun so this is a way of punishing yourself.

#9) Stop punishing yourself! We have a knack of punishing ourselves for the embarrassing things we did years ago. We replay it over and over again before we go to sleep. Let it go and stop punishing yourself. Say, “F*ck it” and move on. Everyone else has.

#10) Be prepared for what’s coming so you will have less embarrassing moments. Here’s the simplest cure to rid ourselves of embarrassment: be prepared, do your homework and enter all situations equipped. That way you have less wiggle room for disaster to ensue.

#11) Never be fake. It’s exhausting and everyone hates it. No one wants to be labeled pretentious or inauthentic, yet “pretending” is what we do. We think it encourages people and makes them feel supported to act like everything is okay, but the truth is it actually makes them feel pitied.

#12) It’s better to do what’s RIGHT over what’s NICE or POPULAR. Your life is always going to be rewarding the more you do the right thing rather than succumbing to what the nice thing is, or what everyone else is doing. Be the hero!

#13) Detox yourself of past regrets by apologizing and closing the door. Don’t let another second go by without apologizing for something that’s been eating away. Have a clean slate and move forward with your life anew.

#14) Dance alone in the kitchen while you’re cooking. A little Hip-Hop music doesn’t hurt, either. Blare it up like it’s your job and throw those spices in the bowl like the diva you are, baby.

#15) Always love, and I mean really love. Compassion, empathy, joy, and peace are all branches of love. It’s healing and rewarding in all aspects of life. Love yourself, be more positive, look at the best in situations, and allow others to feel the love too.
