I choose to be Happy

Sometimes life seems to go just right for us. Harmony. Opportunities. Abundance. When everything is in alignment, it is easy to have a spring in our step and a smile on our face. It is easy to be happy. But, how can we be happy when everything is not going very well? Disharmony. Crisis. Lack. A 2015 study of Harvard’s Class of 1980 revealed that happiness comes from choosingto be happy with whatever one does; strengtheningour closest relationships; and exercisingmore to maintain our health. It takes practice to have a spring in our step and a smile on our face!

Happiness 3G

Grateful Happiness is itself a kind of gratitude. ~ Joseph Wood Krutch Happy people live in a constant state of gratitude, consciously recognizing the many blessings they receive. They also unabashedly and generously demonstrate their gratitude, truly and appreciative of the people and opportunities that come their way. Let us make a habit of outwardly showing our thankfulness. Giving  Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it. ~ John Templeton

Let me out…!!

Ansha thinks that difficult stage of life has passed with attainment of every level of studies. Poor her, little did she know that dilemma was to increase with every success as well as failure. The higher she flew with every achievement, more depressed would she get. She was unable to answer the dicey question: ‘Can I do anything in life?’ She would spend long hours thinking about it.

Be Awed, Delighted and Grateful

When was the last time that we looked at the simple things around us “overwhelmed with wonder” and “filled with surprise”? The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. (W.B. Yeats). When was the last time that we looked at our very own existence with delight, awe and gratitude? Noticing the little things make us realize how amazing life can be. Showing love, being forgiving, taking time to be awed by the things we take for granted – like the beauty of a butterfly, the taste of ice cream, the star spangled sky

More choice = more happiness? You are wrong!

It is very common to think that the more number of choices you have the better. But several research findings say the opposite! Six renowned experiments on the effect of having a large array of choice show that more the number of choices an individual has, the less happier he/she is with the choice made. Studies have also pointed to the fact that a significant number of people will be left unhappy because they harbor the doubt that they may have made the wrong choice! Or, worse, they don’t make any choice at all. In her study on people’s choice
