The happiest people of this world and the unhappiest
people of this world often experience similar things in
Challenges at the office, traffic filled motorways, the
seemingly endless stream of negative news and
constant levels of change.
What separates the happy from the unhappy is that the
joyful ones give their mental focus to different things, because
true harmony is to be found within you, not outside of you.
Here are two simple strategies to help you live fully each day:
1: Count Your Blessings
All too often, in the crush of daily life, we fail to notice all the
good things in our lives. We focus on the less than ideal job
or the endless time in traffic or on the mountain of bills. By
taking a few minutes out of your busy day to count your
blessings, you will bring a sense of perspective to your life
that might be missing. Give silent thanks for the great
country you live in, your good health and loving family,
the fact that you have a roof over your head and food
on the dinner table. Counting your blessings will remind
you of the good in your life that most take for granted.
2: Laugh More
The average 4 year old laughs 300 times a day while the
average adult laughs 15 times a day. Make the time to
watch a funny movie or share a belly laugh with your child.
Laughter relaxes you and ensures that you don’t take yourself
Write down ten things that make you laugh. Then schedule at
least one of these things into each day
At Resilient Minds we help our clients to develop high resilience
so they can perform at high levels on the really important
things in both their work and personal lives.
Have a great week.
