Question: Are you genuinely happy?
Imagine waking up every single day with a smile on your face that lasts long after the sun has set.
Or starting your day with the immensely light feeling of being motivated to be your #bestmeever, allowing others to be inspired by your presence.
Truth be told, happiness is a state of mind. And it can be achieved by creating your very own happiness habits to ensure that you come from a space of joy. Always.
I have always been an advocate for mental health and wellness. That is why - practising what I preach - I always incorporate these things into my daily routine to ensure that my own happiness is always at its peak.
Allow me to share with you these 5 habits of genuinely happy people like myself so that you can own your space as you make your heart smile:
1. Choose the Company you Keep
Who do you surround yourself with? Are you inspired to grow to the fullest in your current circle?
Or are the people you surround yourself with limiting your potential?
If I may be candid about it, choose people who are good for your heart —there's no need to suffer in silence. Give yourself the kind of company that you deserve.
2. Practice Gratefulness Randomly
Everywhere I go, I frequently find myself randomly thanking the heavens for all my blessings, big and small. It's all about making that conscious effort to just take a step back and reflect on how beautiful life is in general, regardless of what happens around me. I also keep a gratitude journal where I list all the things I am thankful for at the end of the day. Counting your blessings can do great wonders for your heart, mind and soul.
3. Self-Care is a Must
Knowing when to stop, when to pamper yourself and allowing yourself to just be is key to maximizing your own growth. Being kinder, a little more loving and considerate to yourself will enable you to journey through life with less stress as you focus on what matters more: your own happiness.
4. Pursue Your Goals
Do something every single day that will take you closer to achieving your biggest dreams. Big or small, every step counts. Know that you have what it takes to reach your goals, all of which you're very much deserving of, to begin with! Having something bigger and better to look forward to allows your heart to anticipate with joy.
5. Be Present in the Moment
Be 100% present wherever you are now, with whatever you do. Don't let the noise of the outside world make you forget to savour the moment you are in as you grow to the person you're meant to be in your current space. Enjoy the process, always, in all ways.
There you go. I hope these habits of mine will allow your heart to smile wider in the coming days.
Stay happy and inspired!
