Happiness Is An Inside Job

Happiness is an inside job. So here are two simple strategies to create more
happiness in your life each day. 

1: Count Your Blessings 

All too often, in the crush of daily life, we fail to notice
all the good things in our lives.  

We focus on the less than ideal job or the endless time
in traffic or on the mountain of bills.  

By taking a few minutes out of your busy day to count
your blessings, you will bring a sense of perspective to
your life that might be missing.  

Give silent thanks for the great country you live in,
your good health and loving family, the fact that you
have a roof over your head and food on the dinner table.  

Counting your blessings will remind you of the good
in your life that most take for granted. 

2: Laugh More 

The average 4 year old laughs 300 times a day while
the average adult laughs 15 times a day.  

Make the time to watch a funny movie or share a belly
laugh with your child.  

Laughter relaxes you and ensures that you don’t take
yourself too seriously. 

As William James said: “We don’t laugh because we
are happy. We are happy because we laugh.” 

Action Exercise: 

Write down ten things that make you happy.  

Then schedule at least one of these things into each day. 

At Resilient Minds we help our clients to develop a mindset of
long-lasting resilience so they can perform at high levels on the
really important things in both their work and personal lives. 

Have a great week.

Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery  
you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense  
of where you are going and why.”
