Is it Really... A Happy New Year?
Let’s be honest!
HAPPY wishes alone, are not enough to make and keep us happy.
So here are some tips to help you to have a
“Happy New Year”
STOP and Think! - Brain storm for 5 minutes what happiness is to you – then make a list of ALL the things that make you happy - Now you’re thinking happy thoughts, you’re bound to feel happier.
Set yourself 1 SMART goal - that the thought of ACHIEVING IT! excites you.
JUST DO IT - Make a plan for attaining this goal - As true self happiness is the steady progression towards a worthy goal, your mood is likely to increase as you embark on achieving your goal.
Spend more time with other happy people, who are encouraging and supportive - Their emotional state will be infectious!
Stay Positive - When something does not go as planned and you suffer a set-back – Focus on finding a solution to the problem instead of wallowing in self-pity. Focusing on the possibilities and on the positives will lead you to continued happiness.
Do something nice for yourself – take part in activities you enjoy, try an exercise class like AboveBoxing, LesMills, Insanity or BodyPump in these sessions you will release endorphins, that give you a feeling of happiness.
Maintain your health, Eat delicious nutritious foods and avoid eating excessive junk food, as being overweight can have a negative effect on your mood.
Lastly remember the old adage: Money can't buy happiness…
