Seven Ways to Happiness

Are you chasing after happiness?

Struggling to find real and lasting joy in your life?

Wondering if you'll ever be truly happy and content?

Being happy is the root to health and fulfilment, so read on to discover how you can achieve happiness right now...

1. Get to the root of your unhappiness. Why are you not living in joy? What do you think is causing you such grief and frustration? If necessary, make a list and consider how you can let go of the drama that is stealing your happiness.

2. Focus on NOW. Don't live in the past or in the future. Now is always what matters. When you are living fully in the present moment, you are in touch with your natural state of joy.

3. Change what you can't accept and accept what you can't change. Your happiness is rooted in your ability to release thoughts and emotions that do not nurture you.

4. Are you doing what you truly love? Are you finding time to embrace your passions? Do what you enjoy. Even if you're not exactly where you wish to be at this moment, make time for the activities that give you a sense of purpose and fulfilment.

5. Let go (or give less time) to people, dramas or situations that constantly drain your positive energy. Instead, embrace those people and activities, which contribute towards your feeling of well-being.

6. Be grateful for what you have. It's the simple things in life that matter. Enjoy the sunrise, the fragrance of flowers, and your loved one's smile. Enjoy the subtle but significant moments that happen as you go about your day. We sometimes forget that we are already rich beyond our wildest dreams.

7. Realize that happiness is your choice. It's up to you whether you embrace joy or wallow in sadness. No one else - and nothing else - can make you happy. Only you can be happy. You can be happy right now.

So, what are you waiting for?

Embrace your joy. Be happy now. Live your life with a smile that speaks your happiness. Share it!

How to Improve Your Relationships

Tired of arguments, petty quarrels, and relationships that drain your energy?

Want to improve the relationship you have with your partner, family, friends, and work colleagues? Here's how...

First of all, look within!

# Treat others the way you want to be treated. If you want to be respected, be respectful. If you want to be heard, listen. If you want to be treated fairly and with kindness, be fair and kind. If you want to be loved unconditionally, love unconditionally. If you wish for positive, uplifting relationships, be positive and uplifting.

# Stop trying to control. When you try to control a person, situation, event or outcome, you create tension and angst - mostly for yourself. Go with the flow. Just be. When you stop trying to control, life flows and you experience increased happiness and harmony.

# Focus on the positive. When you have a positive and uplifting outlook on life, you attract positive and uplifting relationships.

# Adopt a gratitude attitude. Relationships flourish when they are treated with kindness, consideration, and gratitude.

# Listen and Learn. Don't dominate conversations. Let the other person speak and, more importantly, listen to what they have to say. Be supportive and give encouragement.

# Don't be judgemental. No one is perfect. Everyone is on a journey just like you.

# Take responsibility for your happiness. It's not up to someone else to make you happy. Being with other people can bring joy and contribute towards happy experiences, but you - and only you - are responsible for your happiness.

#Exude a quiet confidence. Work on your self-esteem so you can speak up for yourself when necessary.

# Are you communicating in the most effective way? Notice your body language and your tone of conversation. Notice how people react to you.

# Some people have 'off days' so allow for that by reacting in a calm, sensible and tolerant way.

# Smile. Focus on the fun aspect of your relationships - don't take life too seriously.

Finally, know when to let go. If you can place hand on heart, knowing you've done everything you can to improve a relationship without success, then accept that's the way it is.

Focus your attention on people who raise your energy levels and who are good to be with.

When you've done the inner work, you'll start attracting healthy and happy relationships.
