Six Practical Rules To Living A Happier Life, (the sixth one will wow you)
I once had a staff who, when asked what he wanted in life, always responded with a simple desire: “I just want to be happy”.
As straightforward as that answer may seem, who among us doesn’t aspire to be genuinely happy? Surely, we all do. However, the reality is that true happiness isn’t a constant state, and to find it, one must understand some essential life principles. In this article, I’ll share some of these rules with you.
1. Love Yourself: The first and foremost rule is self-love. Self-love is a fundamental component of a happier life. To be happy, you must first love and accept yourself. You can’t give love to others if you don’t possess it for yourself. Self-love is a key element for living a happier life.
2. Be Kind and Do Good: Another rule for living a happier life is to practice kindness and goodness. If you’ve ever shown kindness to someone or do good of any kind, I’m pretty sure you will understand the warm feeling that comes with doing that. It’s sure a rewarding experience. Being kind and doing good deeds is a surefire way to cultivate happiness.
3. Embrace Forgiveness: Forgiveness holds incredible power. Often, we deny ourselves true happiness by holding onto grudges against those who have wronged us. If you desire genuine happiness, try forgiving those who have genuinely hurt you. Forgiveness is a vital rule for a happier life.
4. Do No Harm: No matter how wealthy you become, if you achieve it by causing harm to others, true happiness will elude you. Harming, hurting, or making others cry is fundamentally incompatible with a happier life. To find happiness, ensure that you don’t harm anyone.
5. Stay Positive: Positivity is a crucial rule. Being positive is a sure way to remain happy and lead a happier life. Something happened to me yesterday that almost got me sad, but my mood changed immediately I started seeing the positive side of things. That’s the power of staying positive. So, even when you’re faced with challenging situations, maintaining a positive outlook can transform your mood and perspective.
6. Develop A Cordial Relationship With God: Saving the best for last, cultivating a meaningful relationship with God is the foundation of genuine happiness and joy. If you seek lasting happiness and joy, then you need God.
I hope these rules add value to your quest for a happier life. Here’s to a life filled with happiness, cheers!
I’m Emmanuel, the exceptional being.
