How Unhappiness Grows

We live in a world that is so fast-paced that our human brains don’t know what to make of it. Think back 100 years – no cars, airplanes were just taking off, and TV had decades before it would come into existence. Life was slow-paced and predictable.

Now, largely due to technology and the internet, we’ve had to, as a species, adapt so fast that it’s actually impossible to take a pause. We went from the simple life 100 years ago to receiving dozens of notifications every day. But we do it. We adapt, but at what cost? In some western countries like the US, it’s estimated that one out of every six people is on some type of anti-depressant. If you don’t want to become a statistic, you have to put some effort into creating a happy life.

Tips To Create Happiness

Here are some tips to help you switch off from your fast paced life and reconnect to a simpler time:

  1. Connect with Others – Phone a friend. Plan a family hike. 
  2. Move – Exercise triggers endorphins, stimulating positive feelings and happiness. It also feels rewarding and supports personal goals. 
  3. Engage in Activities You Enjoy – Channel your creative side. Make time for your hobbies, whatever they may be.
  4. Practice GratitudeReflect on things in your life that make you grateful. You can even write them down. This keeps you focused on abundance rather than what’s missing. 
  5. Be Kind to Others – Leave the day better than you found it. Being kind and doing kind acts instantly rewire your mindset.
  6. Breathe – Take a minute. Just Breathe. Do it now you’ll instantly feel less stressed and more present.
