zt 9 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier

Happiness is the only true measure of personal success. Making other people happy is the highest expression of success, but it's almost impossible to make others happy if you're not happy yourself.

With that in mind, here are nine small changes that you can make to your daily routine that, if you're like most people, will immediately increase the amount of happiness in your life:

1. Start each day with expectation.

If there's any big truth about life, it's that it usually lives up to (or down to) your expectations. Therefore, when you rise from bed, make your first thought: "something wonderful is going to happen today." Guess what? You're probably right.

2. Take time to plan and prioritize.

The most common source of stress is the perception that you've got too much work to do.  Rather than obsess about it, pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life. Then do that first.

3. Give a gift to everyone you meet.

I'm not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.

4. Deflect partisan conversations.

Arguments about politics and religion never have a "right" answer but they definitely get people all riled up over things they can't control. When such topics surface, bow out by saying something like: "Thinking about that stuff makes my head hurt."

5. Assume people have good intentions.

Since you can't read minds, you don't really know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people's weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.

6. Eat high quality food slowly.

Sometimes we can't avoid scarfing something quick to keep us up and running. Even so, at least once a day try to eat something really delicious, like a small chunk of fine cheese or an imported chocolate. Focus on it; taste it; savor it.

7. Let go of your results.

The big enemy of happiness is worry, which comes from focusing on events that are outside your control. Once you've taken action, there's usually nothing more you can do. Focus on the job at hand rather than some weird fantasy of what might happen.

8. Turn off "background" TV.

Many households leave their TVs on as "background noise" while they're doing other things. The entire point of broadcast TV is to make you dissatisfied with your life so that you'll buy more stuff. Why subliminally program yourself to be a mindless consumer?

9. End each day with gratitude.

Just before you go to bed, write down at least one wonderful thing that happened. It might be something as small as a making a child laugh or something as huge as a million dollar deal. Whatever it is, be grateful for that day because it will never come again.

九个让你更加快乐的日常生活习惯

九个让你更加快乐的日常生活习惯

幸福是个人成功的唯一尺度。让别人快乐是成功的最高表现,但如果你自己不快乐,你几乎不可能为他人谋幸福,。

考虑到这一点,下面九个小小的改变就可以在您的日常工作中立即增加在你的幸福感-----假设你和大多数人一样:

1,每天早晨的期望。

如果有任何关于生活的大实话,那就是它通常不辜负我们的期待(包括积极的和沮丧的)。因此,当你从床上起来,你的第一个念头:“神奇的事会在今天发生。”你猜怎么着?你也许就是对的。

2,花时间来计划和安排优先。

生活压力最常见的来源是,想到你有太多的工作要做。不要过分想着太多的工作,而是挑一件事,这件事如果你今天完成了,就会使你更加接近你最高目标和生活意义。然后去做。

3,给你遇见的每个人一件礼物。

我不是在说一个正式的,包裹起来的礼物。你的礼物可以是你的微笑,感谢或鼓励的话,礼貌的姿态,甚至是友好的点头。当你经过乞丐时,不要给不给他们留下些零钱。你心灵的平安是值得那些零钱的。

4,避免关于党派和宗教的对话。

关于政治和宗教的争论永远不会有一个“正确”的答案,但他们绝对会让人们都兴奋激动起来,无法控制。当这样的话题浮出水面,低头说:“思考这些东西让我很头疼。”

5,假设人有良好的愿望。

既然你不会读心术,你真的不知道人们所做的每件事背后的“为什么”。把别人的怪异行为归咎于险恶用心,只会给你的生活增加额外的悲惨,而如果你假设这后面是个好心,却会让你能够与这些人和事和解。

6,慢慢地吃一点高品质的食品。

有时候,我们无法避免随便吃点什么就加入一天的告诉运行。即便如此,至少每天吃一次非常好吃的东西,像一小块精乳酪或进口巧克力。专心在它上面,品尝它;细细感觉它的滋味。

7,不在意结果。

幸福的大敌是担心,它来自专注于那些你无法控制的事件。一旦你采取了行动,通常没有什么别的可做。专注于手头的工作,而不是一些奇怪的对可能发生时间的幻想。

8,关闭“背景”电视。

许多家庭在做其他的事情的时候,让电视机成为“背景噪音”。广播电视所做的就是让你不满意你的生活,从而去买更多的东西。为什么在自己的下意识里输入这些编程而成为一个盲目的消费者呢?

9,结束每一天,感激之情。

睡觉之前,写下至少一件今天发生的奇妙的事情。这可能是一些小如孩子的笑,大如一件一百万美元的交易。不管是什么,要感谢这一天,因为它永远不会再来了。
