The Secret of Happiness

How are you feeling at this very moment? If your answer is anything less than "content," the chances are that your state of angst is being caused by two elements that have nothing to do with the Here and Now; specifically, Yesterday and Tomorrow.Regrets about events that have occurred in the past and apprehensions about what could occur in the future have done more to immobilize otherwise healthy people than anything else in the world.
Most people have no control over their emotional well-being. They feel ecstatic when good stuff happens and depressed when things go wrong. Their lives are roller coaster rides: sometimes up, sometimes way down.

It is a fact that if you want something too badly, it is likely to evade you. And this is truer for happiness than anything else. The reason why happiness seems to evade the millions of people searching for it is because they are looking in the wrong place.

Most people look for happiness “outside” themselves and not “inside”.

But what if you could be happy no matter what happens?

You’d stay calm when your car breaks down and your boss shouts at you. You’d stop feeling lonely when there’s no one to talk to on a rainy day. You’d never lose sleep over a relationship that isn’t working out.

The question of how to be happy everyday may be a little difficult to answer, but as always said, happiness is a choice and you can definitely learn how to be happy everyday. Here are some ways to help you remind yourself to stay happy every single day.

- Stay away from things that make you unhappy and from people that have negative influences in your life.

- Wake up every morning by giving thanks - for the bright sunrise, for a great breakfast, or for a good night sleep. Cultivate the habit of being thankful - for great friends or for favors done to you, however small they may be.

- Think positive. Do not think of what you do not have but learn to appreciate whatever you have. Eliminate self-doubt and think that you can overcome difficulties in life.

- Do not let anything ruin your happy day. If you are faced with a difficult situation at work, do not let it ruin your day. Find ways to fix it. If some people make you mad, win the battle by not giving in to anger. Truly, learning how to be happy everyday is your choice.

- Meditate. This will help you manage stress and take charge of your life. Stress can make you irritable or annoyed. It can even put your health at risk. Get rid of stress to help you face tomorrow with a happy smile.

- Understand and respect other people. One great source of the many unhappiness in life is our difficulty to accept our differences. If we see something that we do not like, we seemed to be irritated. Understanding the people around you and why they act that way will help you get rid of negative feelings.

-Do something good for others. Doing something good is indeed one of the best ways to feel good about yourself and be happy. One source of happiness in this world indeed comes from being a blessing to others.

- Watch your words. Learn to be positive with your words - whether it is for yourself or for others. This will keep you from hurting people and avoiding trouble.

- Smile. A smile can truly radiate a positive energy to the people around you and to you as well. Greeting the people with a smile on your face is also one best way to looking good.

- Give and share. The magic of giving is not just about feeling good to be able to give and share to those who need your help. It is also in giving that you receive more blessings.

- Have a good laugh. Learning how to be happy everyday could just be as simple as having a good laugh. Eliminate boredom and sadness in life by sharing a good laugh with your friends or family. Go out with friends who talk about hobbies and travels and share light stories and not talking about other people's lives. Choose to talk with your co-workers about something that is pleasant - your dream places or destination or hobbies and sports.

- Eat healthy. This will spare you from any discomfort and pain. Take note too that it is easier to be happy if you are healthy
