Am I right?
If you’re saying yes, that’s me, don’t feel ashamed two years ago I allowed for my negative thoughts and insecurities to storyline my whole life which made me unhappy and frustrated with my life.
Unsure, where to turn on how to break the cycles I created.
I came up with a simple strategic actionable plan to help me envision the happier life I wanted.
And you are here because you ultimately want the same thing for yourself.
Good thing you landed on this blog: Today, I want to share with you 5 simple ways to live a happier life starting today!
5 SIMPLE WAYS TO LIVE A HAPPIER LIFE
1. INCLUDE GOD IN THE BEGINNING OF YOUR DAY
How often do you find yourself waking and instantly grabbing your phone to check social media?
Listen, I get it!
I was that person, but I realized that when I stopped to show God gratitude for waking me up for that day, I became a happier person.
Why, you ask?
Because I paused myself enough to ask God to help me with my TODAY.
Every morning, I would ask God to guide my day and show me how to become a happier person and throughout time it worked!
Figure that, lol!
Include God at the beginning of your day, and he shall crown your day with the peace, which will ultimately make you a much happier person!
Here’s what to do instead to make sure you’re setting yourself up to live a happy life- follow my everyday morning routine.
2. HANDLE DISAPPOINTMENT HEALTHILY
How do you handle disappointments?
Do you allow it to crush your whole spirit where you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel?
When searching for a happier life, you must not allow discouragement and disappoint or crush you or your joy.
Process your disappointment so that you regain your strength and happiness at the end of the day.
I know it sounds impossible.
But, it’s effortless- try using a thought map technique to help you process your feelings at the end of the session of you dumping your mind into your thought map.
Leave it there.
Do not carry it into your next day!
It sounds extreme, but it’s works wonders!
BONUS TIP: If you’re struggling, try including a daily gratitude journal to help take your mind off of your disappointments and more on what you have accomplished, which leaves me to my next point.

3. LET GO OF THINGS THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF YOUR CONTROL FOR A HAPPIER LIFE
Sounds so easy but yet so difficult, how do we let go of things that hinder our happiness?
Well, I think Elsa from frozen gave us the perfect answer to that question“ Let it go, let it go.
Forgive me if that isn’t the lyrics.
My niece is a JoJo Siwa fan, so we didn’t listen to much frozen lol.
But, Let go of things that are just too big to solve in one day.
Truth is many of us do not understand the power in letting go of things outside of our control.
First, it starts by acknowledging this situation is too big for you to figure out alone, and next, it begins by you surrendering it to God.
Your happiness and peace of mind are more critical, then whatever is weighing your down.
4. ALWAYS LOOK AT YOUR CUP HALF FULL
Life has many beautiful moments, but sometimes what’s stopping us from creating that happiness or accepting that happiness is our pessimistic outlook on life.
Here’s what to do instead, If you have a cynical attitude, remember life is always greener wherever it is watered!
Water the positive instead of always looking for the negative.
As time progress that negative thinking will fade, and you see that wherever positivity is watered, so shall your happiness be.

5. DETOX TO LIVE A HAPPIER LIFE
The no days off movement is very harmful to the body.
Even God rested after creating the world, so what makes us exempt from resting?
This tip may not seem like a significant factor in the happiness factor, but when I decided to relax and listen to my body, I was able to live a happier life.
When you take no days off, your body is working on fumes, I speak from existence, lol.
I spent many years busy, not giving myself the proper time to rest.
The effects it had within me was always damaging!
Not only is it bad for your body, but your work performance will suffer.
You will hit a brick wall.
Listen to your body.
When your body says it needs rest- treat it to that!
You will always have the next day to complete the task with brand new refreshed eyes!
Take time off to enjoy your flowers while you can still smell them.
Spend time with your family, your spouse!
They will be grateful for that many missed opportunities to spend quality time with you.
Take the day off, HAA!
You deserve it!
Now it’s your time, How are you creating a happier life?
