We all have our hard times and bad days where happiness is nowhere to be found.
In life, sometimes, a bad feeling it's a matter of focus: remember when you saw for the first time those optic illusion pictures with a hidden image, where you see one thing at first glance and nowadays you can see several others in that same picture? It's a matter of perspective and focus.
Problems in life can be very tricky and be somewhat of an illusion too. You gotta have tools to deal with this type of situation, so here at Motivate Amaze Be GREAT we've enlisted some tips on how to turn a bad feeling into a good one and find happiness instantly:
6 Tips For Good Feelings and Happiness
1 - Remember a day where you've achieved a goal
How did you felt achieving it? How did others felt and congratulate you for it? Did your parents or family were proud of you? Go back to that day and feel the energy that was in your body. How good it was the experience? GREAT how do you feel now? GREAT
Inspirational quote to reach happiness: "There's nothing better than achieving your goals, whatever they might be.” - Paloma Faith.
2 - Enjoy nature and it's greatness
Sit by the sea listen to the waves. If no sea is near, select a landscape, or your local city garden if nothing is available (last resource if nothing is available use youtube or instagram). Close your eyes if you want to, just listen to the nature sounds. Inhale the fresh air, breath, feel that the minor issue you're going through in your life is incomparable to nature's power. We take society rules so for granted that we forgot how it all started, and how all could end. Get inspired by nature!
Inspirational quote to reach happiness: "Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." — Albert Einstein
3 - Move your body
Don't just stand there feeling misery. Rise up, go outside, move your body with some physical activity - run, jump, swim, play sports, just walk if that's the only thing you can, but do so! Moving your body into a determined form will change your internal biochemistry and that will certainly change the way your brain thinks. And BOOM, good feelings have arrived.
Inspirational quote to reach happiness: “If you don't move your body, your brain thinks you're dead. Movement of the body will not only clear out the "sludge," but will also give you more energy” - Sylvia Brown
4 - Watch the children’s play
Go outside and see the children playing, now act like one. Nothing can demonstrate better what happiness is, than the free sensation of a child's game. Don't be a hard headed adult who never plays with nothing, even if you don't feel like it, just act like a child for a few minutes. Jump rope, go to the playground, hide and seek, video games, sport games, that's a lot to choose from, and like a child you don't know where to start! Good feelings from everywhere!
Inspirational quote to reach happiness: "If you watch young children play, you will notice that they create games, characters, situations, whole worlds in which they immerse themselves with intense concentration." - Daniel Greenberg
5 - Be quiet by yourself
We tend to be always moving, always connecting to others, always doing something that we forget how rich this is: Shut down from the world for some minutes! Cellphones disconnected, no tv or radio noise, nothing electronic plugged in, no noise at all. Put yourself in a confortable position, close your eyes and relax for 5 minutes.
Inspirational quote to reach happiness: "Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from." - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
You can't just be an island, what your loved ones see in you it's important. Some are to shy to say it, so have them writing in a piece of paper. And other advantage of having written down, you can keep that paper in your wallet and read it whenever you need to. It can start with a "You inspired me.." or "I love because..." something of that nature.
Inspirational quote to reach happiness: "The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege." - Charles Kuralt
