Happiness is something that everyone wants in their lives. And when asked most people are going to say that they are happy, even if that’s not the case. Interestingly some people have found ways to become happier in all aspects of their lives.
Are You Happy?
It’s an interesting question. The quick response of most people is yes. Yet is it really a truthful response or are people answering without really taking the time to actually think about it is the ultimate question? Considering that on average there are over 45 million searches a month on “how to be happier”, I’d lean towards the latter. Especially when one looks at the proliferation of tips and suggestions on becoming happier that come up in a search on the interweb of things.
The experts have some fairly common sense suggestions on how one can become happier. Many of these suggestions have been around for years. Some highlights from a recent article of 19 tips I read include the following:
- Stop comparing yourself to others
- Don’t take yourself too seriously
- Stop being a consumer
- Eat healthy foods and sleep well
And then there’s my personal favorite based on what the crazy cruise family has been doing more of the last five years: travel the world.
All of the suggestions are good and I’ve actually implemented a few myself.
