Happiness Makeover?

Are you in need of a happiness makeover?

I am compelled to write this blog because whether your current priority is a business or personal imperative or both , how you feel inside will determine your results.

Of course, happiness is a nominalisation in that what makes one person happy is different to the next.

This blog is a short set of suggestions of how you can lift your happiness up a notch.

Start by thinking about your best day - what would you be doing?

When I did this exercise for myself recently I came up with - coaching clients, giving hypnotherapy, walking my dogs, spending time with my partner and friends, doing yoga, reading, meditating and sleeping.

What's yours?

Then you can scale where you are now 1-10 where 1 is low and 10 is your best hopes day.

Say you scored a 4 - what are you already doing that makes you happy and that you will want to keep doing?

What is one small thing that you can do today to move up to a 5 based on your best day list?

Perhaps set yourself an action step each week or month that will move you one point up the scale each time.

Happiness comes from how we react to events out of our control as well as how we spend our time.

Notice what you do when you behave in an angry, fearful, sad or guilty way.

Can you forgive, led go of grudges, smile, act calmly and keep the spring in your step?

Can you learn to accept yourself exactly as you are? Starting at this point will help you to move forward from solid foundations.
