We all go through different phases in life. Sometimes things get darker and it might seem like you`re never going to be happy again. It`s easy to get caught up in your own mind and think the worst, so here are my advices on how to be happier. You don`t have to do the big things to live a better life. 🙂
♥ Drink enough water and eat healthy food. That being said, it`s completely okay to eat candy, chocolate and anything else you feel like eating, once in a while! Balance is the key.
♥ Exercise. I`m not the best person to be talking about this, but many have made it seem like you need to go out for runs and visit a gym two or three times a week in order to be in a good shape. BUT walks are so underestimated – they do you so good, just go out and get some fresh air.
♥Be grateful. Write down three (or more, that`s even better!) things every night, which you are thankful for. Even if you feel like you have nothing to be thankful for (which can`t be thaaaaat true), force yourself to focus on the small things and write something down. It`ll make you more positive and appreciate things more.
♥ Spend time with people who make you feel good and accept you for who you are.
♥ Sleep enough. I once read that you should get between 6,5-7,5 hours sleep every night.
♥ Accept that what`s past, is past. You can`t change what happened, but you can choose to learn from the past, not make the same mistakes and become a better person.
♥ Read books or watch movies. I always feel inspired after finishing a book or a movie and want to become a better person. Yesterday I watched a movie called “My Dog Skip” – first I was a liiiittle sceptical, but I`m so glad I watched it! It`s about loyalty and love and I learned so much. So, visit the library and find a book you think you`ll find interesting, or find a movie online of a genre you enjoy.
♥ You`re the architecture of your own destruction. Quotes mean different things to different people, but to me it`s the reminder that I can destroy myself, if that`s what I want. With “destroy” I mean it literally. It`s easy to get caught up in your own thoughts and let negative thoughts guide you, or your own heart can become your villain. You can do things that will destroy your life. Don`t let the sadness, regret and pain control your life.
♥ Don`t hate anyone. It won`t really get you anywhere. It`s the same with grudges. Being angry/spending negative energy on hating is energy (and time) you could spend on things that actually will get you somewhere.
♥ You might be going through a really hard phase now, you might be thinking it`s never going to be okay again. The truth is: it will. What`s happening now will end one day. Try to use the things that make or used to make you sad as a strength. Use them to do great things. Inspire people who today are where you once used to be,
♥ Be you. I bet you`ve heard that perhaps a million times before, but it`s so true and it`s maybe the past few years I`ve realised how important this is. Be you and I`ll be me. You could try your very best to be someone you`re not, but you`ll never be really happy. Appreciate yourself, understand that there`s only one of you. Now THAT is something to be proud about. There`s only one you, so you better make the best out of it.
