Last updated by Katie M.

Habits are just as necessary as they are harmful, but there are 6 that might make you a little happier. Any bets? 😏

Changing Your Habits: The Key To More Happiness!

"Be the change you wish to see in this world" - Gandhi

6 habits to be happier

Changing habits isn’t so easy for everyone. It sometimes requires time, patience and real commitment. But I’m convinced that it’s a blessing in disguise. Changing our habits can make us a bit happier because our happiness doesn’t just depend on the outside world, on what’s happening outside, but also and above all on our state of mind and ability to see things in a new light. That’s why the following 6 new habits may help you. They’ll give you a new vision of life and yourself. You can do it!

1. Focus on the details

We often tend to wait for the big moments in life, the memorable events to rejoice and be happy, but we too often forget to marvel at the little things, the small joys and the beauty that’s hidden all around us. When you’re in a slump, what do you do? What gives you your smile back? These are the things you need to notice and imprint in your mind. And if you need inspiration, our toolbox is there with its little joys that do you good.

2. Live in the moment

I suffer a lot from anticipation anxiety or nostalgia and honestly, living in the past or anticipating the future prevents you from enjoying life 100%. How many Sundays with my family have I ruined by worrying about the following Monday? There’s no point in dwelling on it, what’s done is done and there are techniques to learn to be less anxious and enjoy the present moment to simply live more serenely.

3. Let go

Letting go is a notion we should all learn to master, as it makes life simpler and allows us to concentrate on what we can actually do something about. Once we’ve understood that, it becomes easier to accept some situations and work to achieve our goals.

4. Accept your emotions

Accepting your emotions is key to improving your state of mind. Indeed, accepting them also means understanding them and thus no longer suffering them, understanding where they come from and being able to channel them or express them calmly. We all have emotions and accepting them is a way of not letting ourselves be overcome by them and therefore of living more serenely with ourselves and others.

5. Make peace with your body

It’s important to reconnect with your body. Physical activity is essential for your well-being. Sport is good for socializing, it’s ideal for challenging yourself and learning about success and failure. You can also try yoga or sophrology to refocus on yourself. But to make peace with your body, you can also choose to accept yourself, to love yourself by taking care of yourself, by becoming aware of everything your body does for you, by eating better and also making love and masturbating.

6. Put a strategy in place

Create your own happiness. You wait patiently for it to knock at your door, but the happiest people are those who make an effort to be happy! If you want to be happy, start by making this goal a top priority.

What Causes Our Nightmares?

It's still dark when I open my eyes, and my heart is pounding out of my chest. In any case, phew, because I'm still alive and kicking. That man who was chasing me through that abandoned house wasn’t real, and I haven’t been chopped up into hundreds of little pieces. It was all just a bad dream... Like many people, I often have nightmares and have decided that I want to get to the bottom as to why. Let’s take a look together at what causes these disturbing dreams and traumatic events. 😱

8 Reasons Why Malignant Narcissists Are So Dangerous

If the title of this article hasn’t totally scared you away, then you are no doubt wondering what this beast of a person is really like. Well, a malignant narcissist is a step up from a typical narcissist and adds an antisocial personality disorder to the already intimidating mixture. Combined, these two personality disorders represent the relentless need for control, admiration, and power for selfish reasons, making folks with this diagnosis that bit scarier than classic manipulators. Here’s why these people are so terrifying, and how you can get your own back on them.

What Are The Weaknesses Of A Narcissist?

Each one of us has our own weaknesses that hold us back in life; be it at work or in relationships. However, on a more positive note, most of us have the will to work on them and transform them. That being said, once narcissists are brought into the picture, the idea that they want to work on their weaknesses doesn’t exactly seem feasible. For a deeper understanding of these narcissists and more insights into the workings of their minds, discover their weak spots and which pointers they struggle with on a daily basis, yet aren't willing to admit or work on.

Why Do Couples No Longer Fight To Save Their Relationships?

Seeing the number of couples who divorce or separate around us, a legitimate question arises and that is; do we fight less than previous generations to save our relationships? At the first sign of trouble, many of us seem willing to give up and move on to fresher pastures in the love department, that's right, we tend to believe that the grass is greener elsewhere. Is it because we were never truly head over heels for our partner? And, is it naïve to think that love can be everlasting?

I’m Nostalgic; But How Can I Stop Looking Back?

Whenever I have trouble sleeping, whenever I’m bored or whenever my thoughts wander, it’s not uncommon for me to find myself reliving my childhood vacations, or a delightful weekend in bed or even my wedding day. Sometimes I even shed a tear thinking about these moments in my past… Yes, I’m nostalgic, and I love revisiting memories, but that has to stop! Discover the steps to put in place if you want to live in the present!

I Never Thought I’d Say This, But I Hate Working From Home…

Work has always been a synonym of repression for me because it takes up so much of our precious time. Let’s be honest, a 9-5 job with a horrendous daily commute often means that work is sadly our sole occupation. So, when the Covid-19 pandemic struck over a year ago, and we were all ordered to stay home, I found it hard to hide my joy in front of my distraught coworkers; although thankfully my acting talents saved me. You can probably already tell, but going into the office every day was nothing less than torture for me. Yet, all these months later, I’ve realized that I despise working from home and would do anything to sit in my uncomfortable office chair once again!

Do We Always Need To Have The Last Word?

Today, I’m focussing on a habit that drives me crazy: wanting to have the last word. It’s probably because I’m not very good at comebacks or self-confident enough that I’m both fascinated and annoyed by people who always want to be right. But why do they always want to have the last word? What’s behind it?

I Still Suck My Thumb As An Adult

In general, thumb sucking ends around the age of 6. I say “in general” and not “normally”, because as an adult I don’t feel weird or particularly bothered by it. When I get stressed, I allow myself to let go and return to my childhood self by sucking my thumb. Those who know about it or catch me by surprise make me realize I should be ashamed… But is this habit a big deal? What if it makes me feel better? It’s certainly no worse than lighting up a cigarette or biting your nails…

Why Do Hugs And Physical Contact Make Me Feel Uncomfortable?

There are people who don’t like to be touched at all, and who are almost disgusted by physical contact. There are people who like to caress and be caressed for anything and everything, and there are people like me who always recoil when someone tries to touch them. Why do I shy away from physical contact? What if it’s all linked to the past?

10 Examples Of Text Messages A Narcissist Sends

Narcissists definitely move with the times, which is why many of them constantly troll dating sites for new victims. Chatting with a manipulator of this magnitude can be a rollercoaster experience, with dizzying heights that might lead you to believe you are in love, to gut-wrenching lows which will make you question your worth. For any raving narcissist, text message exchanges are a great way to reel in victims and follow through with their master plans for ultimate control over them. Are you texting someone you suspect to be a narcissist? The examples below could confirm your suspicions.
