Happiness Doesn’t Have to be Hard

I'm so happy!

I’m so happy!

Happiness doesn’t have to be hard, however it does take some common sense when it comes to a few little basic habits. These habits are what I call the basics. They are the things over which you have total control and which keep you from being mentally stressed or frazzled.

These habits have to do with your body. It’s true that your mind and emotions have a tremendous amount to do with your happiness, however your body has more to do with happiness than you might think.

  1. A smile on your face is a must. The muscles on your face send a message to your brain and your body automatically makes happy hormones. Putting a smile on your face is the easiest exercise you’ll ever do. It’s worth the effort because it has an immediate payoff.
  1. Sleep is another must. When you body sleeps, it detoxifies your mind and clears the toxic clutter. Not having enough sleep negatively affects your energy level, your mood, and your health.
  1. Keep the surroundings, in your home and office, uncluttered. Cluttered energy creates a cluttered mind. If your surroundings are in a mess, your mind will be in a mess. Clutter can even get to the point where it causes depression and a feeling of being overwhelmed.
  1. Emotion is positively affected by body motion. The position and movement of your body create happy or sad feelings. Any type of active body movement, even a walk, will boost your mood as well as your energy. Exercise calms the mind and can help your think clearly.
  1. Your blood sugar can cause you havoc. It’s pretty hard to be happy when you’re starving and feeling weak. Make sure you have healthy treats to get your through the day in a healthy way, so that your mind and mood is not affected by candy bars and unhealthy eating habits.

Happiness not hard at all when you keep these basic habits in mind.


Do You Have a Positive Mind?

woman thinkingA negative mind will not give you a positive life. Everyone wants a positive life because a positive life is filled with success, fulfilling relationships, and happiness. It’s a fact that you life is a print out of the negative or positive thoughts in your mind.

How do you know you don’t have a negative mind? Answer these questions:   Be honest – answer them the way you are, not the way you wish you were!

  1. When someone gives you a suggestion do you frequently think of a reason why it won’t work?
  2. When you meet someone for the first time, do you usually think of something bad or that you don’t like about the person?
  3. When something you don’t like happens to you, do you quickly share it with friends and family?
  4. Do you have a close friend who is a drama queen?
  5. Are you afraid you won’t get your main goal you want in life?
  6. Are you hard on yourself and frequently quietly criticize yourself?
  7. Are you a worrier?
  8. Do you wish you had more fun in life and laughed more?

If you answered ‘yes’ to 4 or more, you’re not a raging optimist; in fact, you are probably a pessimist. If that’s you, it’s important to realize that when you complain or have pessimistic attitude, you’ve made a decision that something is not good. Change that habit! Look for the good! It’s there if you look for it.

Time to see the other side of life. There’s a song that says, ‘‘Turn that frown upside down and smile that frown away.’

 What to do to be more positive:

  • Consciously be more open to suggestions and people.
  • Stop speaking negatively to yourself and others.
  • Speak only about what you want, not about something bad that happened nor what you don’t want.
  • Keep a smile on your face and have more fun.
  • When you find yourself worrying, immediately change your thoughts to see the way you want the situation to turn out.
  • Quit watching negative news programs (well, that’s pretty much all news these days!)

A change of mind can change your life quickly. Go for it!

4 Simple Steps to Being as Happy As You Want to Be

making a listThere are 4 little steps that that will increase your happiness level immensely the minute you take action on them.

  1. Do you know what makes you happy? Of course you do! Think back to times when you were really happy. What were you doing? Where were you? Who were you with? You probably don’t even need to think too hard because you know off the top of your head what makes you happy. MAKE A LIST OF THOSE THINGS RIGHT NOW.
  1. Next, think hard about the things you do everyday from morning to night. Most people have a habit of doing the same thing day after day. As you mentally go through your average day MAKE A LIST OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU NORMALLY DO EACH DAY.
  1. Now, it’s time to compare the two lists. How many things on your ‘happy list’ do you enjoy everyday? Is your day filled with happy moments or is it barely sprinkled with only a few little happy events? COUNT THE THINGS ON YOUR HAPPY LIST AND then COUNT HOW MANY OF THOSE SHOW UP ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS YOU DO EVERYDAY. How are you doing?  
  1. Here’s the biggie! You know what to do. IT’S TIME FOR YOU MOVE SOME THINGS OFF YOUR LIST #2 (WHAT YOU DO DAILY) TO YOUR LIST #1 (YOUR HAPPY LIST). Who is in charge of your life? Who plans your schedule? Who decides what your priorities are? Who makes your ‘to do’ lists? Who can make a change? YOU can, of course. If you don’t have the ability to run your own life, then you need to make even a bigger change than moving happy things into your day. You need to be the master of your own life. If you aren’t, stop this minute letting someone else run your life. When you allow someone else to run your life, you are a victim and victims are never happy. You must be responsible for your own life – and when you give someone else that responsibility, you are not being responsible! Fix that now – and then take action on the 4 steps to bring more happiness into your life. Happy Days ahead!


How to Use the Happy Secret

smile with paperYes, there IS a happiness secret and you can use it anytime you aren’t feeling happy. This secret has been revealed through many research studies and experiments during the past several decades.

This short cut to being happy is based on the fact that your feelings and thoughts make you behave a certain way. For example, when you are feeling happy – it makes you smile; when you feel sad – it makes you frown. Well, here’s the big secret: the opposite is true! So, when you force your face to smile, it actually makes you feel happy – and when you frown, you automatically start to feel sad.

Why – because your body is connected to your feelings. When your body, including your facial expressions is in a happy position, a message is sent to your brain that you are happy and happiness begins to swell up in you…and vice-versa.

If you act like you’re happy and your body and face are in positions as if you were happy,  you will start to be happy. Of course, you have to be real. Doing a quick half-a-second smile is not going to cut it. If you want to lift your mood, create the facial expression as if you really were happy. Your forehead and cheeks are usually relaxed, your muscles around the corners of your mouth are extended into a wide-open smile, and your eyebrows muscles are extended slightly upward.

Smiling can change your day, your business, your relationships, and your mood. Go for it! It not only works like magic, it’s fun!

Don’t you think everyone should know this? What a happy world we would have. Use it – and spread the world!

How to Get Happy

First of all, if you aren’t happy, you need to know you are blocking it from coming to you. I’m sure you’re not doing this on purpose; so let me tell you how you are doing this without even knowing it.

If you want money, a happy relationship, or even better health, there is something you must do or it will never manifest in your life the way you want.

Here’s the secret: The highest thing you desire in your life is waiting to come to you, however the lowest feeling you have is blocking it. If you have any resentment, anger, sadness, worry, and low vibrational, negative feelings, the high vibrational money, relationship, and health you are desiring, cannot reach you until you clear the dense, negative energy.

Clear those negative feelings! You are clearing them for YOU. YOU are the one who wants to be happy. When you clear them, you will allow yourself to feel high vibrational feelings such as joy, acceptance, and happiness.

When you get in the habit of feeling these high vibrational feelings, high vibrational money, relationships, and health will being to manifest in every area of your life.

The Doctor Whose Patient Cured Him

pol_doctors40__01__630x420There was a doctor with an extremely flaky, itchy, scaly skin condition all over his body, which continually got worse year after year. He wore high necks and long sleeves to hide this embarrassing condition from his patients. One of his patients found out about this horrible problem that was a constant source of irritation and embarrassment to him.

His patient asked when this had appeared. He told the patient that it appeared soon after his wife died. That is when he began grieving and his life had never been the same since. Then the patient asked him to remember when he didn’t have this problem.

The doctor related to the patient what a wonderful, happy time this was. The patient told him to think back and get in touch with those feelings. The doctor agreed and everyday he made an effort to continually feel as he felt when his wife was alive and they were happy together and life was wonderful.

Amazingly, his horrible skin condition began to clear up and soon his skin was completely cleared of the problem. It was a real revelation to him that all those years, his sad, grieving emotions had a direct effect on the cells of his body. The cells of his body were constantly dying.

This same thing happens to you and every person on the earth. Your emotions not only affect your health, they affect your relationships and your finances. Also, the how you think about your finances radiate out and sends messages to your body.

When you choose to be happy every day with the life you have, you choose to be healthy and prosperous. Your mental and emotional affects your physical.

Choose to be happy! It’s a choice.
