#07GOODLIFEHABITS

Protect your level of happiness

Good life habits…
Ups and downs in life….yep, I have experienced plenty. Love, disappointment, children, divorce, success, loss, betrayal, satisfaction, rejection, excitement, achievement and fulfillment – just to name a few. These painful, heartbreaking and beautifully breathtaking moments leave us with our life memories. Memories that make all of us stronger along our life path. I know the more ups and downs I’ve had, stronger I have become – wiser because I made the mistakes, happier because I had the sadness, resilient because I have experienced the criticism. People (and things) have left my life that I never thought would go and I’ve had obstacles that I never thought would stand in my way.

During the good times, it is always so easy to think positively, but when you experience those hard times (and we all do), with a combination of self-doubt and low self-esteem at times, it seems such a struggle to bounce back and exercise good habits into your life. We don’t always see that we’re going to make it out, or how far we’ll get at all. For most, this is a time to lean on your most trusted circle to provide what strength and advice they can. I also try and remember to practice some core ‘good life habits and rituals’ to get me through all those uncertainties that our wonderful lives have to offer.

Happiness was always found in small things on a regular day. As life progresses, it’s sad to see that some of us lose sight of the simple things. We forget the modest lifestyles, silliness and simple pleasures of our pasts. In searching for more, we often end up feeling surprisingly dissatisfied. Focusing on the adult equivalents of the simple pleasures we once enjoyed can reinvigoratean appreciation of uncomplicated pleasures, reducing stress, increasing our gratitudeand allowing us to live richer, happier lives in the present. For the last few years I have focused on enjoying the simple things that make me happy which has truly de-cluttered many elements of my life and made me get into the habit of focusing what is important and what is not.
