The Happiness Equation

IMG_8865

This is from @neilpasricha and The Happiness Equation which is all about learning to be happy. I’ve posted before about happiness being a choice and available to you right here, right now, regardless of what circumstances life is throwing at you. So how do you train yourself to choose happiness?

Pasricha writes about the Big Seven ways to gain happiness: positivity, gratitude, meditation, movement, flow, kindness, and regularly unplugging from the speed of the world. As Pasricha says, happy people don’t have the best of everything – they make the best of everything. So, be happy first.

What are your thoughts on this? What’s your personal recipe for happiness?

The power of positivity

IMG_7257The power of visualisation and deciding to be positive. I received lovely feedback from some clients a couple of weeks ago who said that they found me very energising to be around! I do find that positive energy is infectious – not just for those around you but for yourself. It is possible to decide to be happy. There are lots of things we can’t control, but we are certainly in control of how we choose to react and relate to the world. Decide to be positive, and you start to attract positivity.

Celebrate the small things

I Love You banner
I’ve had a lot of conversations this week about celebrating the little things, remembering to pause in the moment and understanding that you have the power to define achievement within your parameters and on your terms. Happiness is a choice.

What are you celebrating today? I’m giving thanks for this winter wonderland and for the love of my two beautiful children (in this photo: a little love message from my eldest.)

Have a wonderful weekend.
