I am joyful and calm.
I notice the pleasant things that happen each day, even during difficult times. I focus on the positive. I cultivate gratitude and appreciation. I create opportunities to have fun and feel at peace.
I reach out to my family and friends. I spend time with my loved ones. We enjoy sharing deep conversations and fun activities. We rely on each other for companionship and support.
I play with my children and pets. I feel comfortable laughing at myself and being silly. I listen to music. I sing along with my favorite songs. They give me energy and stir up happy memories.
I give back to my community. I do volunteer work at local food banks and animal shelters. I greet my neighbors and bring them home-cooked meals.
I connect with nature. I take long walks and eat dinner outdoors. I watch nature shows. I marvel at sunsets and vegetable gardens. I feel connected with something bigger than myself.
I manage stress. I develop healthy and constructive strategies for dealing with tension at home and work. I work out regularly and eat a nutritious diet. I sleep well and take refreshing breaks throughout the day.
I practice my faith. My beliefs give me comfort and strength. Reading inspirational texts and talking with my spiritual friends lifts my spirits and helps me to understand my life purpose.
Today, I choose to be happy. I am content with who I am and what I have.
- Why does true happiness come from within?
- How can I be happy at work?
- What is one thing I am looking forward to?
