Hello Lifers, Happy Monday!
As you go through this week, many blessings to you!
Happiness is what everyone wants, yet it is hard to come by for many. It is something that must be practiced for it to become a part of your life. Here are five things you can do every day to welcome more joy in your life.
Start a meditation practice.
Whether you meditate frequently, or new to the concept, quieting the mind is essential to daily happiness. Consider it a moment to do nothing but be still enough to listen to yourself. Meditation is the easiest and fastest way to get past mental clutter right to the heart of what you truly desire. Once you know what you want, you can create it. Meditate at least 10-20 minutes a day. Quieting the mind helps you to connect with your true self. When you start your day in control of what you think, your day flows better.
Appreciate where you are and where you have been.
Gratitude can change anyone’s mood in an instant. Set aside a moment daily to list at least three things you are grateful for. The act of focusing on what brings you gratification can fill your heart with joy. There is always something to appreciate, find it day-to-day.
Make affirmations part of your routine.
Positive affirmations can feed your being with encouraging energy. “I am” statements are the best types of mood-improving declarations. Write them down or mentally recite them throughout your day. Here is a sample statement that helps to change any mood. “I am blessed because everything is always working out for me.”We post daily affirmations on our pages, make them part of your routine.
Connect frequently with Source/God/Universe.
Whatever you call the Divine in your life, acknowledging its existence gives you hope. Thank your Source daily for always supporting, guiding, protecting, and blessing you. Recognizing that it is continually there for you and gives you the encouragement and hope needed to go after what you want. If you believe you are supported, you develop more courage.
Learn to receive more.
Welcome what you asked for by being open to receiving it in any form. A lot of us are great givers but lousy receivers. Be open to receiving more. Blessings may not appear the way you asked for them, therefore being receptive is important. For example, abundance may come in the form of information that may lead to more earnings or a learned skill that leads to a new job, not necessarily in the form of immediate money. Look for the blessing in everything.
Practice these five habits as much as you can and more happiness is yours.
