How to Elevate Happiness and Well-being
There are numerous definitions and philosophies of what constitutes happiness and well-being. Although there is no universal consensus or definition of happiness, we can all agree that increasing happiness is a want and need of many. There have been extensive studies done on people worldwide, and the data is clear and comes to a similar conclusion.
Our happiness is more influenced by our own individual perspectives and decisions than our current circumstances. The data also found three recommendations to elevate one’s happiness and wellness regardless of your position or environment.
Reach Out: Initiate and schedule “real-time” conversations or visits with loved ones or reconnect and just say hello.
Practice compassion and empathy: Do for others. One act of kindness and generosity toward another is far more powerful than treating yourself.
Find Gratitude: Give thanks to the blessings that you have. Find them in your daily life and actively express them through written words or verbally.
Well-being is not a beach you go and lie on.
It’s a sort of dynamic dance, and there’s movement in that all the time,
and actually, it’s the functionality of that movement
which actually is true levels of well-being.
