Choose Happiness

August 17th, 2010

🙂 Living a happy, resilient and optimistic life is wonderful, and is also good for your health! Being happy actually protects you from the stresses of life. Unfortunately, the news is constantly reminding us that stress is linked to top causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and stroke. (Feeling happy yet?!!?!)

Let’s do a quick reframe! There is good news! Happiness is a choice! As human beings it is important to realize that we have the power to choose happiness! Even if we find ourselves in an unbearable situation, solace can be found in the knowledge that there is a choice as to how we perceive it. That is not to say the situation still isn’t a bad one, just that there is a choice you can make over how it will impact you. And that is great news!

Happiness can be found in everyone, so doesn’t finding a way to amplify that make sense?

To be happy is relatively easy, just decide to be a happy person. Most people for most of the time can choose how happy or stressed, how relaxed or troubled, or how bright or dull their outlook will be, so the choice is simple really—choose to be happy. Not so simple you say? I assure you, it can be with just a little practice! To get you started, I have listed a few easy ways to do just that! 🙂

Being grateful is a great attitude. ♥ We have so much to be thankful for. Thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely, thank the mailman for bringing you your mail, or thank your friend for listening. I like to find ways throughout the day to thank my children. This not only helps me connect with them in a positive way, but it increases their self esteem and outlook. So it is a real win/win. In fact just today, I noticed my daughter practicing this very same technique on me and let me tell you something, you couldn’t have knocked the smile out of my heart if you tried!! Read more…

The Plan to Manifest $5,000 worked!!

October 18th, 2009

OMG I can’t believe it myself!!
Today I woke up (thankfully) in a much better mood then I had been in previously. I took a long hot bath last night and thought about the day I had had. (Needless to say, it was kind of crummy, but we don’t need to get into details.) Then as I went to bed, I made a conscious decision to have a better day today. That seemed to work (for the most part) although admittedly I hit the off button on my alarm this morning instead of the snooze button and ended up missing the school bus which meant I had to drive an hour round trip to get my son off to school. Aarrgh! I made the best of it though and listened to some positive affirmations on my way. (That was bonus time and I wouldn’t have had to do that otherwise.)

After getting dressed (yes, I did drive my son to school in my pj’s) and getting my daughter out the door to school, I headed off to the gym. Had a good work out, and took some time to practice the deep breathing exercises I began using earlier in the week. It really is a great way to refocus. Read more…
