I know it can be annoying when you are feeing down to hear and see all this nonsense on the internet. Quotes telling you to be happier, stuff telling you how to have the ultimate success.
And you would be right to a degree. Lots of self-help is very helpful and it comes from peoples’ experiences which makes it all the more relatable. But being happier is actually a science. A well-researched path consisting evidence-based findings.
There is a large portion of our happiness that is ‘set’. So there is a spectrum and we fall somewhere on that thanks to genetics and circumstances. If we are further down the scale, then often medication and or therapy will be needed. BUT.. there is a big chunk that we can change irrespective of our biological makeup. It is this part that we can control with our actions, thoughts and things we do each day.
That being said. If you are feeling really low and or depressed please reach out now. The Charity Mind is a great place to start.
Being happier is a process. It has twists and turns and lots of good times and like getting the body in shape, it takes a bit of work. Thanks for reading and here’s a little thought for you; The world is a better place with you in it. LP
