My happiness tool – happiness reminders.
In the pursuit of happiness we all get too carried away and get into complexities
While much like everything in life happiness is simple – just be happy!
Set your reminder today which says Be happy!
You must be wondering did I really mean setting a reminder in your calendar. Well, Yes!
That us just a start. Here are some ways to remind yourself throughout the day to be happy.
Practical ways to remind yourself to be happy
Set your happiness alarm for everyday
This sounds crazy but just set it up with two prompts Smile or Be Happy
Put up a morning post-it
Use reusable smiley face stickers or post-it with words Smile or Be Happy around places where you spend your mornings like washroom, kitchen, work desk, yoga mat.
Change its position after 2 weeks. Keep moving it to another place around the areas of your morning interest. This way your brain doesn’t take it for granted and notices it as the position changes.
I might have mentioned it before but just reminding again spend 30 – 60 secs in a day to remember the happiest, best and the most exciting part of the day.
Check your mood and thoughts during the day
Once during rest of the day check how are you feeling and what kind of thoughts you are creating. Tell yourself Smile and Be Happy (talk to your conscious and unconscious minds)
Draw a poster and place next to bed
Make sure your poster says Smile or Be Happy.
These two words Smile and Be Happy are very powerful. They bring instant smile and make the happiness hormones work
