Today on OiB, I will discuss the secret to happiness. Being happy is the key to good health and a good health is vital to having a successful life. This could work the other way round too but this way happiness is always guaranteed.
Happy? Me? Really?
2017 will be my 5th year abroad, living in Asia. I feel blessed most of the time. It takes sometimes a quick reminder to myself to keep in mind how lucky I am. Plus, having OiB has become a personal investment that drives me toward my best!
There are many ways that one can employ in order to be happy but the best ways are the ones that are on one hand proved to bring about happiness and on the other hand also make you vulnerable even when living alone. These ways have brought me immense calmness and satisfaction which have led me to feel complete and thus happy as well. The following are some ways through which one can stay happy alone as well.
You don’t need anyone to be happy
Remember this notion to always succeed and feel good about the independence of life.
You are more valued
Always keep your own advice above others while respecting and acknowledging theirs on the side as well.
Get more out of everything by paying attention to it closely.
Enjoy silence and listen more
Establish enjoying silence as a way of thinking of it as an opportunity to reflect more peacefully.
Practice listening to what your mind has been asking you to do so you know what you want and need.
Live every moment
It is important to understand that no moment can ever come back hence cherishing each of them is important.
Rearrange your things
Rearrange your furniture or something to actually make yourself feel out of routine life.
Learn to have time to focus and reflect what you want from your life and do not ignore it through mindless TV watching activities etc.
Keep creativity on the loose
Always keep making plans so that your creativity isn’t rusted or lost through the time and you feel proud of yourself.
Starting a blog? Try marathons?
Pursue your plans immediately
Always have new plans for yourself and pursue them as soon as it is possible to keep yourself from losing any energy and excitement altogether.
Travel outside your confort zone?
Do the impossible alone
Do what you thought you won’t ever be able to and do away with your fear of being unable to do something.
Volunteering is the best way to stay happy alone. It gives you inner satisfaction as you do new things without any expectation in return. This helps one rise above expectations and lifts you to stay elevated for your own self.
