Take a positive approach to everything, try to see the upside to each situation. Looking for the benefits in all circumstances is key to being happier as a person. If you need a quick burst of positive energy, think of all of the great things you currently have. Close your eyes and focus on the good things in your life, imagine them pouring over you like a shower. Get in the flow of things, lose yourself in what you are doing. Focus on the project at hand until everything else slips away.
- Having a permanently positive outlook, and trying to see the upside in every situation can lead to increased happiness.
- Imagining all of the positive aspects of your life raining on you, closing your eyes and taking a “gratitude shower” can provide a burst of happiness.
- Losing yourself in the moment, being totally absorbed in the activity, and going with the flow can provide reassurance in routine.
