How happy are you? Happiness is what most people sought have every now and then. They believe it is a pot of gold or it is the end of the rainbow. They spend their lifetime building a pot of gold or chasing rainbows. Whereas, happiness cannot be found where they are looking for it because it resides within out. It is a state of mind. Abraham Lincoln said “It has been my observation that people are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Happiness is not something you search for and find, it is not a destination but a journey. You can never find happiness in material things such as wealth, power or even a position.

With all the crushing and squatting, plus the pains and sweat, I bet you will be wondering how exercise can make you happy. The thing is no well-rounded life can be completed without a balance of ‘work’, ‘play’ and ‘love’. The wholesome effect of exercise is to maintain our sound physical health which can lead to a successful living. Allot a portion of your daily free time to some form of exercise for our body.

Dedicate your time to things that matter every day
Not many people get much more than a sheer glimpse of the glory of life. If you really want to be happy and live well, you need to do what meaningful things every day. Don’t do just anything you are able to do; you need to find something you were made to do and do it more. Those who grumble of their empty lives are living in the swamps of their selves. The secret of happiness lies in doing things that makes you happy, things you were born to do.
Replace your worries with optimistic actions
Most people indulge in foolish worry habit; they just worry about everything. Meanwhile, most of the things we tend to worry about don’t even happen. We worry over things we have no control or can change. We also worry over things we can actually do something about. Instead of worrying, why don’t you work hard at something and be happy. every time we worry about something, our thoughts take over our happiness and kills it.
Let love subdue your fear
Love and fear have great impact in your happiness. Low draws in the happiness and fear pushes it away. We don’t want to be unhappy but we can’t help it when we allow our positive mind to be negated through fear thoughts or thoughts of doubts and worry. Allow love to be engraved on your heart and speak it too.
Give without expectations
If you expect something in return every time you give, you will be very disappointed. Not everyone will do to you what you do to them. When you give as much as possible without expectations, you get happier than you can imagine. Your happiness depends on your goodwill spirit and giving attitude. You can only attain the largeness of yourself when you give to people. Giving something doesn’t necessarily mean material things, when you smile at people, make people laugh, help someone with their bags or being friendly, you give to people. When you uplift people you meet or people around you, you are giving to them. When you do this, you feel at ease with yourself and you will be much happier.
