Stay Positive – positive thinking
I love this quote. Happiness is an attitude. We choose it! Stay Positive!!!!!!
It can make an difference on your over all well being. There is a great article on the Huffington Post on how there is scientific proof that happiness really is a choice. The article talks about, “one theory in psychology research suggests that we all have a happiness set-point, that largely determines our overall well-being. We oscillate around this set point, becoming happier when something positive happens or the opposite, afterwards returning to equilibrium. But this set-point, to a certain extent, can be reset. Although our general mood levels and well-being are partially determined by factors like genetics and upbringing, roughly 40 percent of our happiness is within our control…”
40% of our happiness is our control? I would actually argue its more.
The article also gives suggestions on how to increase your happiness. But my favourite of them is to Practice Gratitude – so easy to be thankful. We live in a world of abundance. Find something small and be thankful for it. Start a gratitude journal and if you are not a paper and pen person, but it in your phone under notes. That way you can refer back to easily when you need it the most!
Have a great day and remember …. Happiness is an attitude!
