Being Happier in 2014

Do you tend to put yourself first? Start thinking about others. You could for instance spend more time with family and friends, help the people who matter to you or do something for your community or a cause by volunteering. Helping others is a very rewarding activity: it will give you a sense of worth and a new respect for yourself. You will be able to develop better relationships with people and will have a solid network of friends you can count on.

Learn to appreciate the small things in life. This might sound cliche, but taking the time to look at a sunset or to go out for ice cream can truly brighten your day. Share these special moments with the people you love, or spend some time alone to reflect on your life and personal development journey. Engaging in artistic creation is an excellent way to relax and learn to appreciate beauty in places where most people would not notice it.

Even if you are a successful individual, remember that you are no better than anyone else. Every human beings has flaws. Adopting a humble attitude will open up new possibilities for you: you will make new friends and realize that you can learn something from everyone. Thinking that you are better than everyone else will isolate you from others and attract other shallow people who are only interested in competing with you instead of developing a real friendship.

Remember that you can learn something in every situation. Keep this in mind as you go through your daily life: start conversations with people and find out more about their lifestyles and philosophy. Find out more about other cultures, history, art, technology and anything you are exposed to throughout your day. This is a very enriching way to live your life and it will help you connect with people and re-assess your priorities in an educated way.

You need to get in touch with yourself and find out what really makes you happy. Take the time to analyze your needs and desire and determine what is really necessary to your happiness and what corresponds to envy or superficial desires. Pay attention to your mood and feelings. If you find this difficult, you should think about going to therapy or to learn more about meditation techniques.

Honesty is the best policy in life. Do not lie to yourself or to the people around you. You need to analyze your life critically and be honest about what you like and what you want to change. Do not blame others for your own mistakes and accept that you need to move on and learn from your mistakes. Adopting an honest attitude with others will help you develop healthy relationships. People will be honest with you in return and will have a change to learn a lot from them.

Adjust your attitude toward life and you should notice a difference. Hopefully, this will help you be happier in 2014!
