“10 Habits” to make your Life “Happy” and “Contented”…

Guten Tag!
It is a fact that we are conditioned with being optimistic, being happy, being positive all the time…
We have been enforcing this belief in our minds…I mean “Wrong Belief” in our subconscious mind so much that when we are upset or dull we, even more, start feeling demotivated and devastated because we can not meet our brain’s false expectations…
 
It is a fact that at some point in life we are bound to feel Negative, Down, Demotivated…
And it is absolutely OK and Absolutely Accepted 🙂
 
So when we are in emotional roller coaster ride  and trying to balance  out ourselves, 
These 10 habits would help the most…
These are tried and tested by me…
And It works Perfectly…
Let us understand 10 Habits to make your life Happy and Contented
 
Habit no 1:- Writing a Journal
Make two parts in the journal…
In one part write down things that you did in a day that made you happy…
 
In another part write down things that made you feel sad and depressed…Now once you write this part…Read it and just cut it off with a pen…
 
You will feel relaxed…
By doing so we are not going to erase these ugly things or memories but we are just accepting it to move on from it at the earliest…
 
Habit no 2:- Maintaining a manifestation or affirmations book
Now, this is something fancy yet effective…
Maintain a book in which Write down things you want to manifest…
Write down your dreams…
Write down your wishlist here…
 
And in affirmations book write down qualities that you want for your self-development…
 
Make sure you use present tense while writing not present continuous tense or future tense…
For e.g. I’m confident…I’m courageous…
And feel like you already have it…
 
This has transformed many people’s lives around me including mine 🙂
 
Habit no 3:- complimenting on small things
Compliments never go waste…
Give compliments to people around…
Be thankful to Mom for sacrificing her dreams for us…
Be thankful to dad who always tries to treat us like a prince or princess…
Be thankful to spouse for unconditional love and fabulous companionship…
Be thankful to friends who had been there for you always…
Be thankful to your siblings for little fights that give immense joy and make the bond stronger…
Be thankful to the universe for helping you out by fulfilling your wishes…
Be thankful to nature for giving us a lot of resources…
Be thankful to your neighbor who cooks delicious dishes for the weekend dinner party…
Be thankful to each person having significant positive contributions and impact in your life…
Everyone teaches you something… So make them happy with simple compliments…
 
Habit no 4:- Enjoying little things
This is something that I have been doing since my childhood…
I love enjoying small things…
Let it be first snowfall or rain…Let it be Grandma’s kiss…Let it be playing with kids…Let it be drenching in the rain with your pets…Let it be gardening and talking to plants while watering them…
 
Small things often give you more happiness 🙂
 
Habit no 5:- self-love
This is very important…
Self-pampering… self-care…self respect…self love should be our habit…
It is said, “Feel guilty for not prioritizing yourself first”…
It is True…
Doing things that you like…Pampering your body becomes part of habit if you opt to do these practices daily…
 
Habit no 6:- meditation
This connects you to your Higher self…Not to higher self but to Inner self 😉
It just stops mind chatter…Makes you peaceful and also gives you a bonus in the form of Mental strength…
 Take out at least 15 minutes a day to get connected to your inner voice… Your inner soul…
 
Habit no 7:- taking out time for a hobby
Don’t you think many times we do not pay attention to our buddies due to our tedious busy schedule?
I think they really need attention from us because they really want to help us…
Being a busy student…being busy businessman…being busy homemaker…being busy working folks…We often forget to justify talents within us…we just suppress them…
But let them pop out…
Give some time to your talents and hobbies…
Spending time for our hobbies is as good as spending time with our soul…
So Are you ready to paint something after a long gap?
 
Let’s get started then 🙂
 
 Habit no 8:- giving gifts to self
I tell my secret of being motivated…
I was consistently failing in my exams for more than 7 years…But I remember I used to give myself a tiny gift each time just to keep myself motivated even when I was miserably failed…
Failure phase is not permanent…so lift up the mood with self-appreciation…
Give yourself a gift on your victories and on your special days …
Do not wait until someone will come to appreciate you by gifting you something…
 
Habit no 9:- Trying to fight all alone…This sounds weird…Right?
We always need someone around us to fight with our problems…We rely on folks by thinking that they will fight with our problems on behalf of us…
But most of the time, we end up fighting all alone… And it is really good to be self-reliant in this case…
Of course, we need to take guidance and advice to cope up in a better way but expecting others to solve our issues and problems is like a fairy tale expectation…
so make your mind trained for this instead of training it to rely on others in our bad phases…
The way we feel responsible and accountable for our success, let us make ourselves responsible and accountable to failures as well…
 
Habit no 10:- Stamping in mind “It is OK to be messy and imperfect
 
Half of our lives we spend in Proving ourselves…Making us perfect…and being tidy…But it sounds boring…Right???
 Just tell your mind it is “OK” not to achieve all these hyped things…
 Trying to make ourselves perfect and ideal drains a lot of our energy and it also frustrates us by seeing that we could not meet our expectations…
 Tell yourself I am perfect with my Imperfections…
Accept your flaws and cherish it…
Tell your mind It is FINE  to fail again and again…Failure is a part of life…
We never like to read a story of successful people who never struggled and became successful…Right???
So self-acceptance is the first step taken towards self-love…
 
 
These 10 Habits to make your life Happy and Contented seem very simple and negligible things but If you make each one your habit It changes your life gradually…
You will experience more contentment than before…
 
And even If nobody likes you or loves you there will be always a person who will love you from the bottom of their heart…
You know who would be that person 😉    …That person is going to be NONE OTHER THAN “YOU” 🙂
