How to Be Happy to fingers touching showing happiness

"Trying to be happy as an end in itself is limited. If instead you devote yourself to a total shift in awareness, happiness arrives as a gift freely bestowed by consciousness.”Deepak Chopra

Don't panic you're in the right place. If you follow my suggestions here by the time you leave this page you will be smiling and happy. And that you can take to the bank!

What I have found is most people spend their whole lives searching for happiness. Happiness is a feeling that is generated from the actions we take. We do something that makes us feel good and that leads to happiness.

I have a life instruction list of things that I do that have always seemed to make me feel great and that led to "happy".  

When I am feeling down if I take a close look at what is missing, it is always one of these eleven crucial life steps. The 11 Life Instructions on How to be Happy is the beginning of some major steps you can take today that will lead to a happy and fulfilling life.  

Hold up... before you continue remember I gave you a guarantee that you would be happy and smiling when you left this page. I said you have to follow my suggestions and the first one is click on the video so while you're reading the 11 how to be happy instructions you can hear one of the best songs ever Good Life. Because it is a good life. Don't let me down I know what I'm talking about click the video I'm watching you.

11 Life Instructions on How to be Happy

1. Be true to yourself. Do not do something because you feel you have too. Do it because you want to and know its right for you.

2. Do what you love for a living not what you think you are supposed to do.

3. Surround yourself with supportive people who inspire you to be the best you can be.

4. Pay it forward whenever you can. Be of service and help others reach their dreams. There is no competition. Good Karma brings happiness and joy.

5. Do something goofy that you always wanted to do. Let go and enjoy yourself. Do not worry about what anyone thinks.

6. Do not take anything personally. It is not about you it is about them. Everyone looks at the world through his or her own perspective at any given time. If they love you, it is about them. If they hate you, it is about them. You have no control over it.

7. Find the beauty in everything. Have a positive attitude when looking at life. It is just as easy to see things in a good light as in a negative way.

8. Make time to spend with your family and friends. A balanced life is a healthy happy life. Too much of anything is not good.

9. Let the little things go and most things are little. Very few things in life really matter in the scheme of things. Look back five years ago and try to remember what was bothering you on this day. You have no idea do you. That is because it really did not make any difference in your life one way or another.

10. Pay attention to your needs and pamper yourself. Take time for yourself to relax meditate and breathe. Above all let you know how much you love you. The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself.

11. Read something uplifting and motivating every day.

Just in case you didn't click the video here's another chance... it may be your last one.

How to Be Happy Getting into Action 

I do a ten minute visualization of how I want my day to go. I put my goals into a visualization and I see myself happy and achieving my goals. This process works so well it's almost magical.

How I hold on to that happy feeling, I appreciate my life. Then I do a mental gratitude list of what I already have in my life. Most people are so focused on what they don't have they forget all the miracles they have in life. 

One thing I recommend if you've never written a gratitude list. Read my article all about the attitude of gratitude that explains that concept in depth.  As it goes into detail  about how you can up your happiness quota by appreciating what you have.

The last thing I want to share with you about how to be happy is a secret ingredient that you don't want to forget. Give your happiness away to others. If you make someone else smile I guarantee, you will be smiling too.

The best way to do that is this amazing how to be happy experiment it will blow your mind how well this works. Smile at everyone you see today and find one nice thing to say to that person. You can say anything as long as it's nice.

You can mention how pretty their eyes are or how great they smell. Watch how you make that persons day and in turn that energy will come back and make your day too.

If you do that every day for three weeks you will be so happy you won't have to worry about finding happiness it will find you. :)
