Thich Nhat Hanh, author and teacher said
There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
What’s the secret of happy people? Simple. They have different habits – they act and think differently.
Here’s what happy people do and don’t do . . .
1- They savor the moment.
Instead of multitasking and being focused on the past and future and on the present negativity all around, those of us who are most satisfied with our lives stop to enjoy the beauty and the small, amazing things in life.
2- Happy people stay grateful for everything they have.
Every day, they actively divert their attention to what they already have instead of what they lack. They express gratitude for what they are working on instead of lamenting over what they haven’t been able to achieve yet. And that’s how opportunities flow their way.
As per the words of Oprah:
Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.
3- Happy people Surround themselves with happy people
Happy people tend to be supportive, warm, and giving. These qualities will encourage you to be happy too. Conversely, hanging out with miserable and unhappy people will weigh you down and won’t allow you to focus on your own well-being and goals.
4- They Sleep healthy, eat healthy, and move
Sleep restores vital bodily functions; eating provides nutrients that keep the body and mind functioning; and moving keeps us in shape and releases key endorphins that ease depression and enhance mood.
5- They have a morning ritual
Morning rituals are soothing and set the stage for how your day is going to play out. Whether you’re meditating, going for a walk, reading an inspirational book, writing a gratitude journal, cooking a healthy breakfast or catching-up on emails, it’s important that you create and stick to a morning ritual. here I share with you 8 things to do before 8 am.
