Quick Reads #7 - Few Tips For A Happier Life

Everyone has difficult times in their lives, but there are always better days to come. However, it can be hard to stay positive in times of trouble! Here are a few ways we can try to make our lives a bit more positive and stay happier.

Finding The Root Of Your Worries

As obvious as it may sound, knowing what causes you stress and worries should be your top priority. This is as simple as writing down the problems or worries you may have. Then separate them between ones you can control and ones you cannot, throw the ones you cannot control in a bin by scrunching it up and focus on the ones you can control.

Clearing Any Misconceptions

You may think other people live happier lives than you but it is usually found to be quite the opposite. Everyone has struggles in their lives no matter who they are, and understanding that just because they may seem happy, does not mean they really are. A good way to clear these misconceptions is to only follow things that calm you down and will not stress you out on social media.

Understanding Everything Happens For Good

This should be something you say every time you find yourself stuck. Everything happens for a reason. Whether you follow a religion or not, knowing that everything will ultimately lead to something good/positive helps your mind stay focused and keeps it motivated to achieve that success. Thinking of a past example where you messed up something only to have something nice happen is a good way to practice this. For example, you might've been late for school only to find out they had a boring assembly/meeting in the morning.

Knowing That Nothing Lasts Forever 

It is important to understand that nothing lasts forever. There will always be a cut off date for your worries. Do you have any worries you had as a child that you still have? Chances are that you don't and we need to apple the same principle here. You will be a totally different person because of this struggle because you grew more and now you understand more.

To Conclude

Even if you have stresses or worries in your life right now, knowing that it won't last forever is really important and can help clear your anxiety up. Even though, it may be a bit harder than usual right now, having good habits helps you get stronger mentally. Is there any other tip you want us to know about? Write them in the comments. Good Luck!
