When happiness leaks out from our life due to daily struggle, stress, worries and busyness of life – we stop being conscious, and we miss out not only on the beauty and importance of our existence, but also on the gifts that life and the Universe offers us in abundance. The level of our consciousness is directly linked to the level of our happiness. The higher the level of our consciousness, the more happiness we are able to create in life for ourselves and for others. The happier we are, the bigger grows our consciousness.
It has been scientifically proven that happy people are healthier, both physically and emotionally, live longer, and have much more fulfilling lives than the grumpy, complaining and, therefore, unhappy among us.
According to psychologists and researchers, happy people tend to challenge themselves – and so, they accomplish much more. The simple secret behind this is that working toward an accomplishment gives us a feeling of fulfilling a life purpose and makes us feel good. What’s interesting, that happy feeling is more profound during working toward our goals than after we have reached them. Why? Because doing things brings us more joy than having things: doing things equals creating memories, “happy coins” which then we store in our “bank of happy investments”. Whenever we think back to those joyous memories, the “happy coins” elevate our mood, give us confidence in ourselves and let us trust that we live in a safe, friendly world.
Happiness helps us generate new ideas, go beyond specific information, think outside the box and come up with more creative solutions. It is the door opening to better understanding of the mechanisms of life, expanding our consciousness and reaching far beyond our limitations.
The good news is that happiness can be learned. Yes, we can rewire our brains for happiness J We can become happier, more effective, enjoying and creating the life we want and deserve:
“I distance myself from the negative self-talk. Whenever thoughts of my inability to be successful, happy or loved cross my mind – I label them ‘old thoughts’. I replace them with ‘new thoughts’ repeating to myself: I can do, feel and achieve anything I want. I can be anything I want and have the life I deserve and desire for myself.” – from the book “365 (+1) Affirmations to Create a Great Life” by Johanna Kern.
