So recently I saw a post on Facebook about keeping positive & drawing happiness towards yourself. Whilst you can't deny that negative things will happen in your life (& sad things that you can't control) being happy & making a conscious effort to bring more happiness to you will pay countless dividends. :-D
I recently, whilst walking in my local town, decided to smile at random people to see if I could get them to smile back. Some thought I was really nuts, some smiled briefly but then went about their day again & some of those faces really melted into an infectious smile that carried on long after I walked past them. This is just one of the ways to bring positivity into your life.
There are other ways, like sending someone a card, even if it's not their birthday. Like paying it forward by sending out a gift to someone who's not paying for it. Like organising an event for charity.
I like to start my morning by giving thanks for good things in my life. I repeat positive affirmations I have dotted around my kitchen. It could be anything like, "I AM golden light. I AM surrounded by love, peace & am abundant in all areas of my life. I AM worthy of all good things. "
That said I haven't always been the most positive & happy person out there. I've suffered with depression & anxiety & sometimes still get anxious but I put my coping mechanisms into practice. Meditation & regular amounts of it are good. Exercise, (in whatever format comes, be it cycling, walking, swimming, yoga etc) will also help maintain your mood. I like singing and dancing around my kitchen! ;-)
Drinking plenty of water & getting the right sleep will also help improve your mood. Eating the right things but also allowing that bit of naughtiness will also help.
So what are you going to do to help yourself to be happy today? Have a think & do let me know.
Bright blessings to all, Namaste & Aho! Heather Xx <3 Xx
