How to Be Happy: Celebrate Your Accomplishments

As you continue your journey to be happy you might fall into the pattern of only focusing on what’s not going well. Whenever you feel that way, take a moment to redirect your thoughts to something positive. Think about the great things you’ve accomplished and pat yourself on the back for the things you have done rather than those you haven’t. Try not to dwell on what’s not working and refocus on what has worked.

How to Be Happy: Keep Your Eyes Open

People get trapped in all kinds of difficult situations because they make decisions based on their emotions rather than observable evidence. For example: You stay in a relationship where the person treats you poorly because your emotions tell you that things will get better rather than going on what you actually observe in the relationship. To be truly happy in life, it’s important to pay attention to how people behave, not just what they say or how they make you feel. What will you do to keep your eyes open?
