5 Simple Things to Start Doing for Your Happiness

Some practical advice from Marc and Angel’s self-help blog:

Life tends to open our minds and educate us as time passes. We gradually realize how much nonsense we have wasted our energy and resources on. And we begin to see more beauty in letting go…

Take this to heart, and start making more time and space for your own happiness and peace of mind. Your needs matter. And if you don’t value yourself, look out for yourself, and stick up for yourself today, you’re sabotaging yourself.

Also, keep in mind that it is possible to take care of your own needs while simultaneously caring for those around you. And once your needs are met, you will likely be far more capable of helping those who need you most.

So today…

1. Start being more polite to yourself. – Think about it… If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?

2. Start filtering out the noise in your life. – Be careful about who you give the microphone and stage to in your life. Don’t just listen to the loudest voices. Listen to the truest ones.

3. Start letting grace have the last word. – Most drama isn’t worth it. And we often only lose the arguments our pride insists on winning. So remember, when it’s more important to win arguments than love people, we need to start all over again with our faith and priorities.

4. Start steadying yourself with simple rituals. – Whenever life feels like an emotional roller coaster, steady your mind with simple rituals. Make the bed. Water the plants. Rinse off your own bowl and spoon. Simplicity attracts calmness and wisdom.

5. Start turning the pages that need to be turned. – I can tell you from my own life experiences, almost everything that has happened helped me grow in some way. Painful experiences taught me key lessons I didn’t think I needed to know. But now I know… No book is just one chapter. No chapter tells the whole story. No hardship defines who we are. So keep turning the pages that need to be turned in your life.

The bottom line is, despite the real world challenges we all collectively face, the biggest and most complex obstacle you will likely have to overcome on a daily basis is your own mind…
