6 Easy Ways to Make the World a Happier Place

Everywhere I look these days, I see stressed people. Exhausted people. Sick people. People who are working more than they are playing and worrying more than they are laughing. We need to lighten up! I invite you evaluate your own stress level, and start thinking about what you can do to invite more happiness into the world around you. Take a look at my list, and add a few ideas of your own.

 

1-            Start by taking good care of you. You make the world a happier place by being a happier you. When you throw your happy pebble in the pond of life, the waves have a great effect on everyone around you, both your immediate world and the larger one.

 

2-            Service is key.  When you offering your time to help others, you are happier. Service can be offered in a lot of ways.  Do something nice for a neighbor, clean up trash, walk dogs, call someone who is struggling, etc. Have a service Saturday adventure.

 

3-            Find every opportunity to have fun. Go to funny movies, sing and dance your way through house work, listen to comedians in the car, take weekend trips to new places, etc.

 

4-            Be kinder than necessary to everyone. Remember that the barista, waitress, guy who changes your oil, and the telemarketer on the phone are all trying to make their way through life too. The Dali Lama once said, “I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives. I’m not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like sex, drugs or gambling (though I’m not knocking them), but something that will bring true and lasting happiness. The kind that sticks.” Be a person that brightens strangers’ days, on purpose!

 

5-            Make eye contact. When you are open enough to look directly into people’s eyes, you are allowing them to see your authentic you. It creates a brief connection between people that strengthens the energy around you everywhere you go.

 

6-            Shine your light on everything you touch. Envision your solar plexus as a lighthouse beacon, constantly rotating around you, bathing the world in gold light.

 

We can move mountains of stress when we work together. We can make the world a light, brighter, happier place to be by focusing on our own needs first, then fanning our efforts out. Shine on!

    Reasonably I suspect as much. I'm likewise skeptical so I harp on the negative. Constructive individuals I believe are quite recently excessively terrified of feeling miserable so they attempt to act all upbeat and overlook all the negative out there. Which is annoyingly implausible to me?
