Find Your Own Happiness by These 7 Simple Steps

Most people spend their entire life waiting for happiness to come to them. However, it is important to be aware that happiness does not come to those who wait for it but rather to those who put themselves out there and seek it. We live in a world that functions at an incredible speed, with feelings of isolation and loneliness being more and more common. More and more people are diagnosed with depression and anxiety, the concept of happiness becoming a rare thing. You too can find your own happiness by following a couple of simple steps. Always remember that pursuing material things does not bring happiness, perhaps only a temporary high.

#1 Quality time with family & friends

When it comes to healthy lifestyle tips, perhaps this is the most important one to consider. No matter how busy you might seem to be, you have to organize your daily schedule, so that you can spend quality time with your family and friends. As the years pass by, you will understand that the time spent with people you love made you truly happy, unlike the fleeting high that comes from pursuing material things. Being close to people you care about can help you feel fulfilled and at peace with yourself.

#2 Work with passion

They say that if you choose a job that you are actually passionate about, it won’t feel like actual work. You need to find a field that you are interested in, as this will allow you to go from a simple job to a fulfilling career. The more committed you will be to your job, the less stress you will experience and the happier you will be with your achievements. Find your sense of purpose and everything else will follow.

#3 Stay healthy

Our health is the number one thing we take for granted, whether we want to admit that for a fact or not. When it comes to unhealthy habits to break, this is the first one you have to work on. You need to visit the doctor for prevention and not for the actual treatment of various conditions. By managing a good state of health, you will also be happier (illness can generate a considerable amount of stress in your life). Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, drink water and engage in physical exercise. Stay healthy.

#4 Make love

Even though this might sound like the obvious thing to say, you need to have regular intercourse. The more intimate you are with your partner, the happier you will be. It is a well-known fact that sex stimulates the release of happiness hormones at the level of the brain, helping you feel more relaxed. Do not toss these moments of intimacy aside, just because you feel there is not enough time. Make love and enjoy yourself, as you need such moments to be happy.

#5 Be honest about the things you want

Sometimes, it seems that we live two lives, meaning the real one and the one that goes inside our head. We are afraid to be honest about the things we want, even though this honesty might bring us closer to the happiness we seek. Do not spend your time wondering how certain experiences would undergo; instead, find the courage to open up to those around you and tell them about your interests.

#6 Be altruistic

In the fast-paced world of today, being altruistic seems to be the last thing anyone would be interested in. However, when you help other people, you will definitely feel happier. Altruism can boost your self-esteem, which will further stimulate the release of happiness hormones at the level of the brain. The more you help others, the better you will feel. Simple as that.

#7 Get involved

People who are part of something bigger than themselves are also the ones who are the happiest. You can try a new sport and discover the positive effect of team spirit, try out for a band or join a book club. It does not matter what you do, as long as you get involved and become part of a community. Plus, you will get the chance to meet new people, get out of your comfort zone and simply be happy, without investing too much effort into it.

These are a few simple steps you can take, to find your own happiness. Keep in mind that we only live once but, when done right, it is enough. Do not pursue material things, hoping to reach happiness. Instead, spend more time with your friends and family, help other people and find spiritual things to enrich your life. Enjoy the simple things, as these are the most important.

8 Comments on Find Your Own Happiness by These 7 Simple Steps

  1. Hi Yvonne; I was surprised by a couple of the things you mentioned here. One, not many bloggers talk about the value of a healthy sex life to happiness. I also liked when you talked about a person having two halves to your personality. But the one that made the most sense was about making your needs known. Many people had asked me if I wanted to host my own radio show or interview people for my podcast. I always told them the idea sounded good but I just didn’t want to take on another project that would require so much work on a regular basis. I kept telling people that until a new friend named Anna Banguiland came along. She said it sounds like you are asking someone to offer you an opportunity where you could have a radio show as long as all you had to do was show up and talk. I said yes that is what I want and what I have been putting out there in the world. Well, I’ve been doing a show with her for three months and in eight days we start weekly episodes. I’m still a bit nervous, but I can see the possibilities as well. Thanks again for this post, Max

    • Hi Max

      So good to see you and happy that you took the time out to leave a comment that has added much value.

      Yes, the healthier one’s sex life the happier the individuals are. That’s a given. A key hormone released by the brain during sexual intercourse and other gestures such as hugging and holding hands strengthen social bond and also increase the level of one’s happiness.

      It is important that we verbalize our needs – it just makes it easier for those who can help to reach out and provide the resources that we need. A perfect example is the one with your radio talk show. I trust all go well with it.

      Thanks for your participation. Have a great day/week.
