Steps To Create Your Own Happiness

We all feel blue at times, but it’s all about perspective. We don’t find happiness, we make it.

It is a choice, that we have to make every day.

Enjoy the little things, stop and smell the roses, and practice seeing the good in the worst situations.

Be grateful for life’s little mercies.

Happiness is a journey.

Start yours with us here by using this guide on how to practice happiness.

Live in The Now

We know.

You’ve heard this a million and one times, but have you ever really forced yourself to practice it?

Practice is the key word here.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, and try again.

Here’s the trick: whether you are having the time of your life, or in a heated argument, don’t anticipate future events, and don’t dwell on the past.

This way, whatever you are going through is simply what it is, and has no repercussions.

It is pure, simple, and much easier to process.

While you are in those joyful, adventurous moments, don a pair of fun sunnies to shield those peepers:

Practice Gratitude

Be grateful, it’s that simple.

No matter how hard down on your luck you are, there’s always something to be grateful for.

Make a list, make a habit of it, whether morning or night, and find a time to thank the universe, mother nature, a higher power, or whatever you believe in.

Even if you don’t, just be thankful, and feel the joy.

Embrace Your Talents

A sense of achievement is a joyful thing.

As is doing something you’re good at, you enjoy, or better yet, both.

Let your artistic side out, or your inventive side if you’re inclined that way.

Get sporty, write, read, paint, explore, meditate, teach, create, or build; the world is your oyster.

Let the positive energies flow.

Bring out the artistic vibes with a pair of sunglasses fit for an artist:

Be One with Nature

Whether you enjoy a walk in the park, a hike, nature trail, forest stroll, or just a meander through a field: be around nature.

Bodies of water are great too.

Reconnect, ground yourself, bask in the calm and positivity, refresh and rejuvenate, just be, or run, skip and jump.

These sunnies will stay on through it all:

Take Time Outs

To think, meditate, collect yourself, recenter, or just chillax; the hustle and bustle of life and being constantly busy can get you down.

Even if it’s just 10 minutes in the morning with your coffee before everyone wakes up, think about your day ahead.

Plan, be thankful, contemplate, or if you have the luxury, lounge by the pool and take a time out in these glam sunglasses.


Sharing is caring; the joy of giving is greater than that of receiving.

No, really!

Giving to others results in more joy and is more gratifying and long lasting than treating yourself.

Not to say that you shouldn’t be treating yourself, but there is a pure contentment in sharing that is worth experiencing.

So get at it.

Be Kind

Watch yourself, and listen to your inner monologue.

How do you talk to yourself? What do you think about yourself?

Do you criticize others this harshly?

If yes, you should change that too.

Be kind, and don’t make excuses for yourself.

We are all on a journey and you have to start somewhere.

Push yourself to improve, but be grateful of your struggle and above all, be positive.

Change your inner mantra: you are beautiful, and you can conquer the world if you put your mind to it.

So, get your mindset right.

While sitting at home in your pyjamas may be what you think you need, glimpsing your reflection when you’re not looking your best isn’t always good for your self-image.

Don’t be superficial, but feel good about yourself.

At the very least, be well groomed, and we all know how some well applied red lippy and a pair of heels can make us feel invincible.

Insert your power outfit of choice here if lipstick just doesn’t do it for ya.

On a side note, being authentic in who you are, and the way you portray yourself to the world is key here too.

These sunglasses will make you feel like a million bucks, or just like a glamour goddess, whichever you’re going for:

Surround Yourself With Positivity

Be it the people you surround yourself with, or the environment.

A cluttered, dirty or bland environment that doesn’t inspire you can get you down.

Surround yourself with things you love, and colours that uplift and inspire you.

The people and four legged friends you choose to share your space with can pollute your good vibes.

Be aware and careful of energy.

As for those you cannot choose such as co-workers etc., simply learn to deflect.

Reach Out

Our loved ones, whether biological family or chosen, are the for a reason you are grounded, and feel supported.

Do the same for them, and use that energy positively.

Reach out, reconnect, make time, reconcile, and love.
