Where do you picture yourself, while you paint your imagination with your happiness? Lemme guess, in the middle of a sand filled land, flanked by the glittering blue waters of the magnanimous sea. It might be right there in your garden, attaining eternal bliss in watering your plants. So many of you would envision a coffee house, friends, laughter and togetherness. Reading books, pampering your body, playing that favorite sport, accomplishment at work. And the list losses parameters. Its endless.
Now the next big question. How often do we spare time to reach out to our foreseen happiness? No, now I’d not drift off and ask you to rationalize yourself. So I spare you off the expected ‘I am busy’ excuse. But ever pondered, you’re so consumed by the rat race, to snatch time for your own happiness. Sounds strange. Life’s not fair, and for sure famous for its immense uncertainty. But no reason under the sky should be justifiable for an unaccomplished happiness. In the paragraphs to come, you will soon bring yourself to an acknowledgment with this undeniable truth.
This is absolutely not a piece of preaching. This blog shall only endorse short and crisp ways to absorb happiness in every inch of anything you do. You’d be surprised to know, how the small, little and tiniest of things you do, help you to be happier tomorrow (or even today if you act now).
How To Be Happier Tomorrow
1. Give Time To Yourself
It is probably and by far, the greatest favor a person can do to himself to be happier. Sparing time for your own self can take you to an escalated level of happiness. While being alone, you ponder on the many things you thought you would hover upon, but of course your ‘I am busy’ schedule never allowed you to. You swap many of your problems with solutions, and now you’re only an implementation phase away. Nothing can beat the pleasure of lying on your couch, with your back confronting it and spending time with your thoughts. Just that, do not stretch the activity to a day’s extent. You might just strike an idea of reconciling with a friend you split horribly with. Joy has everything to do with your being alone. Just manage a pathway for it, and you will get it.
2. Do I Look Bothered
Prevailing to a ‘Do I Look Bothered’ attitude all over yourself will work for you always. Try escaping yourself from being involved in anything that’s happening with others. Try grape wine instead of grapevine, I’d suggest. Unnecessarily making yourself an integral part of others’ issues will only interrupt your happiness. Instead managing your chores and channelizing your energies can elate you with a joy of self-indulgence. Avoiding any truck with people’s affairs keeps you detached from any negative thoughts you would not want to be conquered with.
3. Pass A Smile
Smile a lot, it surely is infectious. An absolutely easy way out to be happier is to bestow others with your smile more often. You do not have to know a person to infect them with that curve on your lips. Smile at a stranger in a tram you probably come across every day. Smile at the taxi driver who just dropped you at your destination. Smile out of no reason to the person who just passed by your side, or may be the vendor on the road side. Say a Hi or a hello to an acquaintance at work place. A sense of warm-fuzzy feeling overpowers you. Don’t blame me for the consequences of smiling away at someone returning from their dad’s funeral. Spread happiness in order to find some for yourself. Once a habit, smiling will screw anything that sets your happiness apart.
4. Laugh Out Loud
The most prominent of them all, rib tickling moments, leave their footprints of happiness for a prolonged period. “I didn’t see you coming” was Jim Carrey’s response to his boss when he inquired why Jim was not working. Impromptu responses like this for example make everyone grab their stomach and die laughing. If only your boss doesn’t sue you for that. Laughing out for anything that features humor helps you to be happier. But let laughter just flow in, do not impose it. A spontaneous laughter exposes the traits of self-confidence, which in turn makes way for the inflow of happiness in you. So never refrain yourself from an opportunity to laugh your lungs out.
5. Get A Social Facial Done
Having a well knitted social network spills euphoria all around you. Having friends to share experiences with, hang out with, watch a movie with, sit in a restaurant with and hi-five for every other mutual opinion, releases the barriers of your happiness. You do not always require doing something; even a mere companionship helps you to be happier. Calling a friend to say “I was just missing you” will crack the happy deal with both the parties. Being socially alive gives you a sense of involvement with people surrounding you.
6. Earnestly Commit To A Goal
Fix a goal. Make a plan to achieve it. Focus and make it happen. Committing to a goal inculcates responsibilities in your being. Commit to the extent of not sparing any option for you. Enveloping yourself with a goal brings you to a realization that you are struggling for your own success, or fulfillment of desires. Every foggiest of achievement towards your goal shall stuff you with happiness from tip-to-toe. So give life to your dreams for the sake of being happier tomorrow.
7. Be Yourself
Being definitely not pretentious makes your happiness go leaps and bounds. Walk if you feel like, laugh with your jaw dropped to its full extent, if that’s how you laugh. If only it does not look gross. Nothing parallels transparency of a human heart. It is like acquiring kingship of some kingdom. Disencumbering yourself from analyzing every time the way your gestures come out, will reveal your true sense. Be real and never let your being go latent.
8. Transient Happiness
Life will offer you more of for-the-time-being-happiness rather than the big reasons to go happy. Feeling happy realizing it’s your mom’s birthday today, or filling your gut with butterflies over fixing a date with your crush, swelling with pride over praises from your boss, collectively makes you happier. So the moments of transient happiness enthralls you more than the big picture to appear. Even though momentary, these temporarily joyous moments fill the present moment with glee.
9. Religious And Spiritual
Engulfing yourself in spiritual and religious learning, shall make you perceive your surroundings larger than life. There is a deep sense in everything viewed spiritually. It morally alters and enhances perception. Sinking into the abyss of life and its comprehensions or practicing and following religious norms on a regular basis, cultivates happiness in and around your being.
10. Do Not Impose
Not everything in life is pursued to satiate monetary issues. Appending happiness with your lifestyle, might last for a lifetime, but is soon won over by monotony. Do not deliberately attempt to impose happiness in your life. It will, undoubtedly, be a shear waste. Make some small little changes and let happiness come to you gradually. Confronting yourself with the lies of being happy does not solve the purpose. It is the actual realization of your life that can bath you with happiness. Which shall then, never go off you.
You do not really have to roam the entire Rome to be happier tomorrow. A little looking around, a little sneaking here and a little there fills you with gala times. Happiness is notorious and ever wandering. You smile, spare yourself some time, laugh, involve in yourself, and you’re sorted with happiness as your prized possession.
