Many argue that with small psychological tricks and a few positive actions, people have the ability to make themselves feel happier! Although the duration of that subsequent happiness has not been determined exactly, who couldn’t use some quick happiness fixes for the bad days?
For instance, laughter with friends is scientifically proven to instantly change a person’s mood, even during the hard times. It makes us forget what we’re going through for a while, and it reminds us that we have people around us who love and appreciate us… Of course, pain is meant to be felt eventually one way or the other, but those little laughters, they cheer a person up!
What’s better than remembering that life is nothing but a big old joke anyways?
Science has in fact proven that small measures such as laughing, smiling, giving, loving, meditating, socializing and exercising can help us feel better about ourselves.
Finally, these days, it has become increasingly popular to hire a life coach to help you reach your desired life goals and to help you feel happier in your life.
The following resource page by Life Coach Spotter will help you find your life coach and consequently live a more fulfilled life.
Identity Magazine is all about empowering women to get all A’s in the game of life — Accept. Appreciate. Achieve.TM Every contributor and expert answer the Identity 5 questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the above article. As a team, we hope to inspire and motivate ourselves and inspire you to get all A’s.
1. What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? What are you still working on accepting?
I’ve learned to accept my physical shape, features and even some of the personality traits that define me. I’m still learning to accept the rest of my personality traits and characteristics, in order to build up my self-esteem.
2. What have you learn to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? What are you still working on to appreciate?
I’ve learned to appreciate the material things that I own, and not to ask for more when the timing isn’t right. I’m still learning to appreciate the people around me more.
3. What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What makes YOU most proud? What goals and dreams do you still have?
My career makes me happy and proud when I achieve certain milestones. I still want to move forward with my career further ahead in order to reach my next milestone.
4. We all have imperfections, so we think. The truth–we are all perfectly imperfect. What are your not-so-perfect ways? What imperfections and quirks create who you are–your Identity?
I have a problem with appreciating things the way they are. I have been brought up in a culture where everybody always wanted – and got – more of everything. Being around such a community always made me want more and not appreciate what I got because it was never enough, whether it be work goals, career possessions or relationship goals.
5. “I Love My…” is an outlet for you to express and appreciate all the positive traits that make you…well… YOU! Sharing what you love about yourself will make you smile, feel empowered, and uplift your spirit and soul. (we assure you!) Identity challenges you to complete the phrase “I Love My…?”
I love my dedication to my career and how I don’t give up on it even though it has let me down so many times.
