How to be Happy

How to be Happy

posted in: Felicity | 0

With summer winding down and fall and winter approaching, (oh, how I love autumn weather!) I want to remind myself of these great truths about happiness.

A reminder for us all, inspired by John Bytheway’s ‘How to be Totally Miserable’

“If you’re trying to be miserable, it’s important you don’t have any goals. No school goals, personal goals, family goals. Your only objective each day should be to inhale and exhale for sixteen hours before you go to bed again. Don’t read anything informative, don’t listen to anything useful, don’t do anything productive. If you start achieving goals, you might start to feel a sense of excitement, then you might want to set another goal, and then your miserable mornings are through. To maintain your misery, the idea of crossing off your goals should never cross your mind.”
“The Imagi-Nation is a little country in your head. When you’re young, you go there to play. When you get older, you go there to worry.” 
 John Bytheway, How to be Totally Miserable

So, in order to be happy, follow these suggestions:

-Don’t worry about things you can’t control
-Count your blessings and be filled with gratitude
-Forget yourself, think of others
-Let go of bad memories (don’t relive them!)
-Be kind to yourself and find things to praise
-Be happy and content with what you have
-Learn new things
-Sing!
-Smile!
-Laugh!
-Have faith and courage- don’t take counsel from your fears
-Have adventures 

 Here’s to a happy life!
