Happiness is not decided by where you are or what you are doing. It is not a measure of what you have. In fact if you think about it, Happiness is a feeling that comes from within you and stays on till you are comfortable with it.
It can be cultivated with practice and control over your thought process.
Observe yourself, your habits, your way of talking, how you walk, what you enjoy, your interests and so on. Begin becoming comfortable with them.
How do you exactly embrace yourself. Don’t feel sorry for what you are, such as your voice or inherent habits that makes the unique you. if you find that some habits are not you and you want to change them, make an effort and change them.
However never go by a standard someone else set. It is your life and you decide your standards. If it is not acknowledged by others, you do not have to worry. You identify the unique you and carry yourself with dignity.
2. Accept and Embrace Your Body
The media and the world around you has successfully shove clichéd images of men and women as being perfect. However this is done for the economic benefits of corporate giants and companies producing health and beauty products.
A recent study says that more than 91% of people around the world are unhappy with how they look.
Well, don’t be one among them, practice loving your body. It is perfect for you and you need not worry about how you look. All you need to worry is whether you are healthy.
3. Develop Your Strengths
List out your strengths honestly, Write down everything, however small it might look to you, just write them. By strengths I mean not the ones you feel you are better than others, this is not a comparative strength, it is your unique strength.
Begin appreciating these traits in you and work on them to enhance them further.
Accept those strengths, work on them and enjoy them.
Do not care for acceptance of others or people around you, what matters to you need not be controlled by others. Have that unique attitude with you and carry it with poise.
