Chris’ and Dora’s suggestions for a happier life:

Live in the here & now

Do yourself a favor: Switch Off the TV

Prime your environment

Learn to combat your negative thoughts.

Learn to fail or fail to learn.

Read the full list of suggestions with more detailed explanations:


Invest time to get to know yourself well

Happiness is about being able to accept and love oneself. Happy people accept and like themselves and are liked by others. Love of self leads to love of all.


Learn to combat your negative thoughts

If someone else was questioning or criticizing your performance or abilities would you not defend yourself and your actions?. But when we criticize ourselves, we have a tendency to accept our own thoughts as a definite truth, instead of defending ourselves against our negative and destructive thoughts.


Learn to fail or fail to learn

The most successful people in life regard failure as a learning opportunity. Ask yourself the right questions such as: What can I learn from this experience? How can I make best use of what I learnt? How can I make my next experience better? Then go out and try again. Happiness is about having the courage to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself, work hard, and cope (versus avoid).


Relax with the ‘relaxation response’

Take time to relax each day. Make relaxation part of your daily routine. Turn it into a natural reflex so that you may find some peace of mind each day. You can use this technique both as a daily practice and in emergency situations.


Be grateful for what you have

Make gratitude a way of life. Most of us lead a pretty good life but are used to compare ourselves with others and often focus on what we do not have. Happy people learn to focus on what they do have. You will then realize that you have much more going for you then you thought you did.


Live in the here & now

Learn to live in here and now. Most of us live in our past (which we can no longer influence) or our future (which has much uncertainty). The only thing we have 100% control over is the here and now. One way to learn to live in the moment is to practice meditation. People who meditate have been proven to cultivate more positive emotions than those that don’t.


Do yourself a favor: Switch Off the TV

Whether you are aware of it or not TV has a large influence on your state of mind and ultimately your happiness. Watching shows, movies, or the news about people hurting one another physically and emotionally has a deep impact on your mind and state of happiness. Further, advertisers influence you to believe that you will be happier once you have purchased their product or service. This compels you to look externally for happiness versus searching within.


Find Pleasure & Meaning

Have you ever sat down and reflected on what brings you real pleasure in life? You may discover a gap between what you are doing now and what you truly enjoy doing. While pleasure increases our short-term happiness, it is finding meaning in our lives that impacts our long-term happiness. Ask yourself what skills you have that can make a difference in others’ lives and then apply those skills to help them.


Prime your environment

Did you know that your environment has significant impact on your level of happiness? Consider how you would feel if you were surrounded by people who argued all of the time. What do you do to create an environment where you feel happier, more energized, and feel healthier?


Happiness is contagious

Happy people spread happiness, are outgoing, and tend to be social people. Make time for friends and family. Learn to laugh more. Share your happiness with others and you will see it increase ten fold. Contrary to today’s ‘scarcity mentality’ where we believe one can only have at the expense of others, happiness promotes an abundance mentality.
