The Road To Happiness.

In a world where we get instant gratification resulting in artificial happiness that is short lived and subsides almost instantly. What constitutes real happiness is blurred. The road to real happiness is a sum of some simple steps; read the eight steps below and start your journey toward real happiness.

1. Allow Yourself To Be Sad

The first step to achieving happiness is to accept your moments of sadness. Sadness is not a permanent experience; it is a state of change and a necessary one to experience. So let it all out — get it all out of your system. Don’t be afraid to cry, those tears are therapeutical. By allowing yourself to reach bottom, you will see clearer that what is ahead will be better than now. So break the cycle and act and move toward your happiness.

2. Remove Toxic People In Your Life

The people that surround us reflect who we are and affect our psychic. So if you are going to hangout with pessimistic friends, then expect yourself to feel less optimistic about your own potential and your life. They compose an artificial circle that will bring you down more than it pushes you up. Get ride of these toxic, negative people. If they do not present a positive worth, then re-evaluate their worth in your life. Go in search of positive people, they give your life perspective and happiness.

3. Do Things That Terrify You

Be proactive as happiness comes with satisfaction of an outcome: If you do not act, there will never be an outcome. By doing things that terrify you, you will train your personality to want action — even if it is a risk. Fear limits your potential; by simply taking action you create what you need to be happy.

4. Being Happy Is A Conscious Decision

Happiness is the direct result of action. The happiness you crave is possible; question is do you want it? Decide you do, and then act towards achieving it

5. Leave The Past Behind

The past is the past and cannot be change. You certainly can learn from it. Do not fear to fail again. You have an advantage as you have been there and can avoid pitfalls, so use the past failures to your advantage and not to freeze you with fear. Fear will only defeat you before even have a chance jeopardising your chance to succeed and happiness.

6. Pick Up A Hobby

It could be art, books, cycling, painting or even jogging. Whatever it may be, a hobby allows us to enjoy the small satisfaction outside of the taxing duties of work. This allows you experience satisfaction with consequences. A hobby is where you experience a state of peace, feel free of fear or stress, it provides you happiness.

7. Limit Your Use Of The Social Media

Social media stirs feelings of anxiety; jealousy and depression. The constantly updates on what your friends are doing creates that feeling of missing out. Limit it in your life; why not just stop looking for a few weeks. Bring the focus on yourself and your happiness.

8. Stop Caring What Others Think Of You

People are full of opinions and like nothing better than tell you what is best for you. Stop caring about what other people think. Do what makes you happy.
