Perfection is lame

5 WAYS TO BE HAPPIER

1. Compare yourself to yourself.
One of the first things I decided that I needed to stop doing was comparing myself and what I had to other people and what they had. But what to do instead, since replacing a habit tends to be more successful than trying to just stop doing it? I decided that I would compare myself to myself instead. To look at how I had grown. How far I had come. How I had become more successful in small or bigger ways.

2. Be kinder toward other people.
One interesting thing I discovered was that when you are kinder toward other people in your life, you tend to think about and treat yourself in a kinder way, too.
And the other nice thing about this is that how you treat others is how they tend to treat you in the long run. So I have found it very helpful to focus on being kind in my daily life.

3. When you stumble, be your own best friend.
Instead of beating yourself up when you make a mistake, fail, or stumble in some way, ask yourself: How would my best friend or parent support me and help me in this situation?
Then simply do things and talk to yourself like he or she would.
This simple change in perspective can help you to not fall down into a valley of depressed thoughts, but to be constructive and optimistic about what you do from here on out.

4. Forgive yourself.
Forgive yourself for thinking negatively. Forgive yourself for talking, without thinking twice. Forgive yourself for being rude to your superior, your friend, your parents, or your siblings. Don’t think negative thoughts about yourself for taking wrong steps or making wrong decisions. This kind of thinking puts your focus on the problem and not the solution. It’s better to say good things about yourself than to say negative things. Always saying positive things about yourself is a sign that you have forgiven yourself.

5. Say yes to something new.
Something you haven’t eaten before. A new song or album. A new author or movie. A new sport. A new way to work or through your town.
By actively going outside of what is normal for you or your comfort zone you’ll discover new, wonderful things in life quite often.
This will bring happiness into your life and if you develop this habit then in my experience it will be easier to move outside of your comfort zone in bigger ways too.

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”

Till next time…
