Last updated by Katie M.

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.

Editor’s note: Let yourself be surprised!

Staying in a routine could lead you to miss out on new, often wonderful things. Don’t hesitate to shake up your habits to be happier. 👉 If you feel locked in your routine, that the unknown is paralyzing you, don’t hesitate to talk about it with our qualified psychologists in order to understand where this behavior comes from and how to put in place new habits that will allow you to blossom from day to day.

🤗 Understanding yourself, accepting yourself, being happy... It’s here and now!

8 Reasons Why All Narcissists Are Hypocrites

If you know anything about narcissists, you'll surely be aware that they are extremely overly judgmental and critical, especially towards other people. Their faultfinding stems from their perception of ultimate superiority, and therefore legitimizes them in holding people to intimidatingly high standards 👑. However, although they may believe they are pretty much perfect, the reality couldn't be any more different, yet they are slightly more forgiving with themselves. That's right, they are huge hypocrites and go from one extreme to another in a split second. Here we discuss the reasons behind their hypocritical behavior.

Do Narcissists Fear Intimacy?

Plus, we'll delve into how to approach intimacy after narcissistic abuse.

What Is The Tinkerbell Effect In Psychology?

Brilliant, ambitious, perfectionist... These words correspond to some people, especially women, who suffer from “Tinkerbell” syndrome. But as in all fairy tales, there’s a dark side... Just like Peter Pan’s fairy, they try to impress and are perpetually unfulfilled, compulsively seductive, and even manipulative 🧚. Psychotherapist Sylvie Tenenbaum coined this term after noticing that some people were obsessed with appearances and success. Let’s explain.

Who Do Narcissists Target?

One thing that can be said about narcissists is that they certainly aren’t predictable people! 😱 Plus, spoiler alert, they don’t necessarily always choose to emotionally abuse seemingly weak people, no, in fact, they often choose bigger fish to fry because they love a challenge.

What Is The Narcissistic Stare? - 5 Reasons Why They Glare 👀

Narcissists have a reputation for being amongst the most manipulative people out there, and rightly so! The truth is, these people are so good at the evil things they do because they operate under the radar and use covert methods to exercise their depraved missions. Now, one of the biggest and seemingly most unsuspecting techniques they use to manipulate and control their victims is staring. You're no doubt a little dubious about a stare being an effective tool in the art of manipulation, but it's true, a void and menacing look is one of the most intimidating and unnerving gestures that these folks turn to.

Are Covert Narcissists Dangerous?

The concept of covert narcissism, or as it’s also known, ‘vulnerable narcissism’ is a fairly recent one. Now, these terms may seem pretty harmless, but the reality couldn’t be any more serious. The truth is covert narcissists present themselves to the world as anxious, socially uncertain, sullen, and withdrawn, yet, in actual fact, they share the same grandiose and unemphatic traits as their exhibitionist counterparts 😱. That’s right, these folks are just as equally skilled in the dark arts of manipulation as overt narcissists, although, they tend to hide their true intentions with more finesse, making them even more dangerous. Learn here why they are so dangerous, what they do, and what they say.

5 Scary Things A Narcissist Smear Campaign Involves

We hear so much about these emotional abusers in every walk of life that we are sometimes so overloaded with information regarding them, meaning we often miss the red flags that, in hindsight, seem blatantly obvious. These vindictive manipulators often use smear campaigns as a way of getting back at their victims and villainizing them publicly. That's right, these evil campaigns are an effective method for them to change the narrative of the abuse, and to present themselves as victims, when in reality they are the perpetrators of the terror.

Are Narcissists Lonely?

Loneliness is one of society’s biggest enemies, and none of us are exempt from it, not even the most devilish of narcissists out there. In fact, throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, 36% of Americans claimed that they have never felt lonelier, which sets a scary benchmark for the wider population 😔. Now, lots of us would no doubt immediately assume that narcissists are too independent and strong-willed to feel alone, however, the truth is they are often the biggest victims of loneliness, yet simply have trouble expressing their inner malaise.

Why Do I Feel Bad When People Don’t Message Me Back?

Friday night rolls around and after a hard week you were expecting to have a drink with a girlfriend, but she seems to have left you hanging on read...

Well, if that’s the case, obviously you or your "how about a drink tonight?" didn’t deserve an answer. Let’s take a look at why some people don't reply to messages, and why when someone doesn't reply to your text, this makes us feel so bad.

Are Narcissists Insecure?

There is no denying that narcissistic personalities display some deeply worrying and disturbing traits, but what if these devious traits were just a means of protection? What if they were in fact a complete facade, fabricated to keep people away, in the hope of hiding their deepest darkest insecurities? 😱 After all, everyone has weak spots, even the most confident and put together of people, so why wouldn’t a narcissist deal with the same niggling doubts as everyone else?
