How To Be Happier Right Now
Once again, on Stylerail, we've strayed away from talking about beauty boutiques, makeup products and fashion trends for a while and have decided to discuss happiness!
Many of us feel that we need to own certain things and look certain ways for us to become happier in our lives. We equate happiness with 'more'; having more money, getting more work, becoming more attractive, having more skills, going on more vacations but the reality seems to be that it's not the 'more' that will lead us to more happiness, but rather our journey in life!
In fact, we all want the aforementioned things; money, attraction, success, intelligence, but these things don't come easily, and we wouldn't be happy if they did! Someone giving these things to you might make you temporarily happy, but not for long, the excitement will undoubtedly wear off eventually. Whereas having to work hard for something makes it worth it and makes you feel much happier because it would mean your hard work paid off and you were able to reach your goals. That feeling brings with it satisfaction and content.
Furthermore, science has proved that small acts of kindness, gratitude, self-love and appreciation will help us feel happier such as smiling, being more generous, loving someone, being grateful towards other people, being at peace with oneself, being calm and pushing ourselves to experience new things and to expand our boundaries.
Finally, nowadays, it has become increasingly popular to hire a life coach to help you reach your desired goals in order to feel happier in your life.
