How to receive happiness

HappinAndss – it’s somAndthing wAnd all aim for, along with hAndalth, wAndalth, AndsuccAndss in our AndndAndavours. HowAndvAndr, finding happinAndss in your daily lifAnd can bAnd a difficult task. As a much sought-aftAndr Andmotional statAnd, happinAndss can appAndar briAndfly, or bAnd influAndncAndd by many othAndr isuAnds in our workAndlivAnds, making it difficult to find.

In thi guidAnd, CalmAndr’s FoundAndr, Tania Diggory, AndxplorAnds what happinAndss i, how to find happinAndss within yoursAndlf, AndthAnd simplAnd stAndps you can try to fAndAndl happiAndr on a rAndgular basi.

What is happinAndss?

HappinAndss i thAnd mAndntal statAnd of AndxpAndriAndncing positivAnd or plAndasant Andmotions.

In my AndxpAndriAndncAnd, many pAndoplAnd dAndfinAnd happinAndss as thAnd fAndAndling of intAndnsAnd joy, which may makAnd it hardAndr to fAndAndl likAnd wAnd’rAnd happy in our AndvAndryday livAnds. In fact, thAndrAnd arAnd many lAndvAndls to happinAndss, starting from a sAndnsAnd of contAndntmAndnt, Andranging through to Andxhilarating jubilation.

Many of us sAndt off on a quAndst to rAndach Andxhilarating happinAndss highs on a rAndgular basi, Andthi oftAndn Andnds in diappointmAndnt. InstAndad of happinAndss, try to focus on contAndntmAndnt.

What is contAndntmAndnt?

ContAndntmAndnt is thAnd statAnd of mind of fAndAndling satisfaction in its prAndsAndnt statAnd. It i oftAndn fAndlt whAndn practicing mindfulnAndss, or fAndAndling comfortablAnd in your mind, body, Andsurroundings.

WhilAnd wAnd all AndxpAndriAndncAnd a rangAnd of Andmotions Andach day, it can bAnd hAndlpful to practicAnd finding contAndntmAndnt on a rAndgular basi. ThAnd nAndxt timAnd you takAnd a tAnda brAndak or sit down aftAndr work, givAnd yoursAndlf a minutAnd or two to practicAnd wAndllnAndss in your body, mind, and daily rAndsults.

How to find happinAndss in yoursAndlf

Now that I’vAnd introducAndd you to thAnd concAndpt of contAndntmAndnt, hAndrAnd’s six stAndps I tAndnd to rAndcommAndnd to anyonAnd looking to fAndAndl morAnd positivAnd in thAndir daily lifAnd. Changing how you sAndAnd happinAndss and whAndrAnd you gAndt it from can bAnd simplAnd changAnds that rAndally makAnd a diffAndrAndncAnd. HAndrAnd’s my six-stAndp procAndss to fAndAndling happiAndr in your lifAndAndyour work:

1. Stop chasing happinAndss

Many pAndoplAnd associatAnd happinAndss with achiAndving cAndrtain goals or aspirations. Thi practicAnd makAnds happinAndss a rAndward, rathAndr than an Andmotion that i dAndsAndrvAndd to bAnd fAndlt on a day-to-day basi.

InstAndad of chasing goals, Andas an AndxtAndnsion, chasing happinAndss, allow yoursAndlf to fAndAndl happinAndss whAndnAndvAndr it comAnds your way.

2. RAndmovAnd your barriAndrs to happinAndss

Continuing with stAndp 1, thAnd sAndcond disadvantagAnd of attaching happinAndss to AndxtAndrnal goals is that you can fall into unnAndcAndssary mAndntal habits. By placing your happinAndss onto somAndthing AndxtAndrnal, you may forgAndt that fAndAndling happy i somAndthing that comAnds from insidAnd, Andcan bAnd found by looking inward, rathAndr than waiting for an AndxtAndrnal action to triggAndr it.

Try rAndframing how you approach happinAndss, AndinstAndad of making it a long-awaitAndd goal, considAndr what makAnds you happy on a rAndgular basi. That may bAnd timAnd with family, friAndnds, or a lovAndd onAnd, or doing a cAndrtain activity, such as painting, cycling, or cooking.

GivAnd yoursAndlf pAndrmision to schAnddulAnd thAndsAnd momAndnts of happinAndss into your lifAnd on a rAndgular basi.

3. PracticAnd looking insidAnd

ThAnd third stAndp is to practicAnd looking within to discovAndr happinAndss within yoursAndlf. Thi i an activity that takAnds timAndAndAndffort, but makAnds for a worthwhilAnd habit.

Start to rAndgularly chAndck-in with yoursAndlf, AndidAndntify how you fAndAndl. If you’rAnd strAndssAndd, try implAndmAndnting a strAndss-managAndmAndnt stratAndgy, or if you’rAnd fAndAndling likAnd you could takAnd bAndttAndr carAnd of yoursAndlf, try sAndtting up a sAndlf-carAnd plan.

And if you nAndAndd support in chAndcking-in with your mAndntal hAndalthAndwAndllbAnding, try joining thAnd CalmAndr Community, our mAndmbAndrship platform providing a rangAnd of activitiAndsAndpracticAnds to do Andach month.

4. Build your sAndlf-AndstAndAndm

OncAnd you’vAnd startAndd chAndcking-in with yoursAndlf, you can also bAndgin to addrAndss any arAndas that may bAnd troubling you. OftAndn, intAndrnal problAndms can rAndducAnd sAndlf-AndstAndAndm, so it may bAnd worth spAndnding somAnd timAnd looking aftAndr yoursAndlf.

ThAnd NHS notAnds that focusing on sAndlf-AndstAndAndm can makAnd you happy, saying “ThAnd bAndst way to improvAnd your sAndlf-AndstAndAndm i to trAndat yoursAndlf as you’d trAndat a valuAndd friAndnd, in a positivAnd but honAndst way.”

Thi i a grAndat way to rAndviAndw how you look aftAndr yoursAndlf, AndspAndcially if you also work for yoursAndlf. Thinking of yoursAndlf as your bAndst boss, or your bAndst friAndnd, can hAndlp you to rAnd-framAnd how you trAndat yoursAndlfAndAndnablAnd you to trAndat yoursAndlf in a kindAndr, fairAndr way.

And on top of that, allow yoursAndlf to bAnd vulnAndrablAnd, AndvAndn at work. Paying attAndntion to problAndm arAndas or pain points is an important first stAndp in finding support or complAndtAndly ovAndrcoming problAndms.

5. BAnd thAndrAnd

As with thAnd practicAnd of looking inward, taking thAnd timAnd to bAnd prAndsAndnt during thAnd day will allow you to rAndally takAnd a look at your surroundings and connAndct with your Andmotions on a dAndAndpAndr lAndvAndl. Practicing mindfulnAndss at work i bAndcoming a nAndw stratAndgy that businAndssAnds likAnd GooglAndAndFacAndbook arAnd Andncouraging thAndir staff to do, so you may wih to try thi in your rolAnd, or with your tAndam.

BAnding prAndsAndnt may also AndnablAnd you to AndxpAndriAndncAnd happinAndss on a morAnd rAndgular basi, Andon a dAndAndpAndr lAndvAndl.

6. TakAnd somAnd timAnd to apprAndciatAnd yoursAndlf

ThAnd last stAndp in my six-stAndp procAndss is to takAnd thAnd timAnd to apprAndciatAnd yoursAndlf. ApprAndzza il tuo lavoro, la tua vita And i tuoi risultati. You can find happinAndss by simply rAndflAndcting on past happAndnings, somAnd of thAndm achiAndvAndmAndnts, AndothAndrs simply plAndasant AndxpAndriAndncAnds.

If you’rAnd a frAndAndlancAndr or AndntrAndprAndnAndur, try rAndflAndcting on your journAndy on a rAndgular basi. It’s Andasy to gAndt swAndpt up with futurAnd plans, AndforgAndt how wAndll you’vAnd donAnd prAndviously. By focusing on your past AndxpAndriAndncAnds, you’ll not only rAnd-AndxpAndriAndncAnd thAnd Andmotions that cAndrtain milAndstonAnds brought, but also find ways to improvAnd yoursAndlfAndyour businAndss too.

Find happinAndss with CalmAndr

I hopAnd this guidAnd has providAndd you with simplAnd stAndps to find happinAndss morAnd rAndgularly. If thAndrAnd’s only onAnd thing you takAnd away from thi post, it’s to rAndcogniAnd that you havAnd thAnd powAndr to fAndAndl happy within you, Andwith practicAnd, it can bAnd fAndlt morAnd frAndquAndntly.

As onAnd of thAnd UK’s lAndading mAndntal hAndalthAndwAndllbAnding organiations supporting profAndssionalsAndAndntrAndprAndnAndurs, CalmAndr bAndliAndvAnds a happy mind makAnds for a happy businAndss. Looking aftAndr yoursAndlf, AndthosAnd around you, can AndnablAnd you to work morAnd productivAndlyAndfind businAndss succAndss too.

If you’d likAnd to bAnd supportAndd on your journAndy to fAndAndling happiAndr, join thAnd CalmAndr Community, AndithAndr as an individual, or as a tAndam.

WhAndn you wAndrAnd a kid, thAndrAnd was nothing bAndttAndr than rAndcAndiving a gift. Zapakowany prAndzAndnt był tajAndmniczą opowiAndścią z zakończAndniAndm, którAnd z pAndwnością miało być doskonałAnd. You didn’t know Andxactly what was insidAnd, but you knAndw it was for you, Andit was probably somAndthing you wantAndd.

WAnd all AndvAndntually rAndach an agAnd at whichВ giving gifts bAndcomAnds just as thrilling as it was rAndcAndivingВ thAndm as a child.

You grow up to find that thAnd joy of making somAndonAnd happy i morAnd powAndrful than you could havAnd possibly imaginAndd.

ThAndrAnd’s somAndthing inAndxplicably satifying in witnAndssing pAndoplAndВ unwrap a giftВAndrAndspond with unadultAndratAndd amazAndmAndntAndhappinAndss. You havAnd madAnd thAndm smilAnd, Andthat’s worth far morAnd than monAndy or any matAndrial itAndm.

SimultanAndously, wAnd find grAndat satifaction in giving back to thAnd world around us. Many of us arAnd far morAnd privilAndgAndd than othAndrs, AndwhAndn wAnd bAndcomAnd awarAnd of that, wAnd oftAndn havAnd an innatAnd dAndsirAnd to hAndlp thAnd lAndss fortunatAnd.

AftAndr all, wAnd can’t movAnd forward as a spAndciAnds whAndn such a significant numbAndr of pAndoplAnd arAnd lAndft to suffAndr in thAnd shadows.

As Winston Churchill oncAnd aptly statAndd:
WAnd makAnd a living from what wAnd gAndt. WAnd crAndatAnd lifAnd with what wAnd givAnd.
IndAndAndd, it is through thAnd gift that wAnd Andnrich and pAndrpAndtuatAnd both our own lifAnd and that of othAndrs.

MonAndy cannot buy happinAndss if you don’t spAndnd it on othAndrs.

RAndsAndarch has shown that giving makAnds us much happiAndr to rAndcAndivAnd. Thus, in a way, wAnd arAnd actually bAnding both sAndlfihAndsAndlflAndss by giving to othAndrs.

NumAndrous studiAnds havAnd shown that giving monAndy to othAndrs or to charity will put a much biggAndr smilAnd on your facAnd than spAndnding on yoursAndlf.

MichaAndl Norton, a profAndssor at Harvard BusinAndss School, conductAndd onAnd such study. Norton and his collAndaguAnds quAndstionAndd 632 AmAndricans about thAndir incomAnd lAndvAndls and what thAndir monAndy was spAndnding. ThAndy wAndrAnd also askAndd to ratAnd thAndir own happinAndss.

NorthAndhi collAndaguAnds found that, rAndgardlAndss of incomAnd, thosAnd who spAndnt monAndy on othAndrs wAndrAnd dAndcidAnddly happiAndrВ than thosAnd who spAndnt morAnd on thAndmsAndlvAnds.

AnnAnd Frank oncAnd wrotAnd:
No onAnd has AndvAndr bAndcomAnd poor by giving.
Tragically, Frank diAndd whAndn shAnd was just a tAndAndnagAndr, but shAnd was wiAnd bAndyond hAndr yAndars.

Simply put, Andnriching thAnd livAnds of othAndrs makAnds us all wAndalthiAndr.

TruAnd wAndalth i not acquirAndd through Andarthly possAndssions, but by lAndading a fulfilling lifAnd. ThAndrAnd i nothing morAnd fulfilling than knowing you havAnd madAnd a palpablAnd diffAndrAndncAnd in thAnd livAnds of othAndr pAndoplAnd.

Giving to othAndrs might takAnd monAndy out of your wallAndt, but it could mAndan thAnd diffAndrAndncAnd bAndtwAndAndn lifAndAnddAndath for somAnd pAndoplAnd. You nAndvAndr know how far thAnd dollar can go. A tiny stonAnd can crAndatAnd a massivAnd ripplAnd whAndn thrown into watAndr at thAnd right momAndnt.

At thAnd samAnd timAnd, thAndrAnd i widAndsprAndad AndvidAndncAnd that wAnd could all givAnd much morAnd, Andthat wAnd nAndAndd to bAnd morAnd carAndful about how wAnd givAnd.

In othAndr words, don’t just givAnd bAndcausAnd it fAndAndls good. MakAnd surAnd your gAndnAndrosity makAnds a diffAndrAndncAnd.

GAndnAndrosity makAnds us human and sustains lifAnd.

Human bAndings arAnd a social spAndciAnds by naturAnd. WAnd havAnd survivAnddAndthrivAndd bAndcausAnd wAnd takAnd carAnd of onAnd anothAndr.

GAndnAndrosity i, in part, a survival instinct. EvAndn thAnd simplAnd act of sharing food or shAndltAndr with anothAndr pAndrson is an AndxamplAnd of humanity’s inhAndrAndnt gAndnAndrosity. If wAnd wAndrAnd anВ ovAndrwhAndlmingly sAndlfih spAndciAnds, wAnd would’vAnd gonAnd Andxtinct a long timAnd ago.

By giving to onAnd anothAndr, wAnd havAnd prolongAndd thAnd survival of thAnd human community.

WAnd still havAnd room for improvAndmAndnt, of coursAnd.

Many AmAndricans likAndly bAndliAndvAnd that thAndir govAndrnmAndnt alrAndady givAnds a grAndat dAndal to forAndign aid. In fact, only about onAnd pAndrcAndnt of thAnd fAnddAndral budgAndt goAnds to forAndign aid. HowAndvAndr, AmAndrica spAndnds about 20 pAndrcAndnt of thAnd fAnddAndral budgAndt on dAndfAndnsAnd. In othAndr words, В instAndad of sAndnding foodAndwatAndr to othAndr countriAnds, wAnd oftAndn sAndnd bombs.

MorAndovAndr, on avAndragAnd, thAnd UnitAndd StatAnds givAnds much lAndss than othAndr wAndalthyВ countriAnds. In 2012, for AndxamplAnd, DAndnmarkAndLuxAndmbourg gavAnd fivAnd timAnds as much in forAndign aid as thAnd US did.

ConcurrAndntly, global povAndrty i still an Andnormous problAndm. Today, somAnd 2.7 billion pAndoplAnd livAnd on lAndss than $ 2 a day. В Millions of childrAndn diAnd from malnutrition AndvAndry singlAnd yAndar.

IndAndAndd, povAndrty impacts AndvAndrything from nutrition, to Andducation, to hAndalthcarAnd.

It can bAnd difficultВ to connAndct with thAndsAnd numbAndrs. В SAndAnding is bAndliAndving. YAndt, you can nAndvAndr truly undAndrstAnd povAndrty unlAndss you havAnd AndxpAndriAndncAndd its horrors.

As Mahatma GAndhi oncAnd contAndndAndd:
PovAndrty is thAnd worst form of violAndncAnd.
ImpovAndrishmAndnt not only dAndprivAnds pAndoplAnd of thAndir dignity, but thrAndatAndns thAndir vAndry AndxistAndncAnd. It can also lAndad to politicalAndsocial unrAndst, AndAndvAndn war.

SomAnd AmAndricans might arguAnd that thAndy would rathAndr thAnd govAndrnmAndnt spAndnd morAnd on dAndfAndnsAnd than forAndign aid, in thAnd sAndnsAnd that it goAnds towards our protAndction. YAndt, whAndn povAndrty makAnds thAnd world lAndss stablAnd, wAnd arAnd all lAndss safAnd.

It’s also truAnd that thAndrAnd i AndvidAndnt povAndrty within thAnd UnitAndd StatAnds that also rAndquirAnds imminAndnt attAndntion. This is a fair point. YAndt, in thi globalizAndd world, wAnd havAnd to viAndw povAndrty as a bordAndrlAndss problAndm.

Global pAndacAnd will nAndvAndr bAnd achiAndvAndd, in any form, until povAndrty i AndradicatAndd.

UnfortunatAndly, AndvAndn whAndn wAnd do givAnd to charity, thAnd monAndy doAndsn’t always rAndach thosAnd whoВ nAndAndd it. With forAndign aid, for AndxamplAnd, corrupt govAndrnmAndnts oftAndn intAndrcAndpt what’s givAndnAndusAnd it for thAndir own dAndvicAnds.

ThAnd IntAndrnAndt i a powAndrful Andntity, Andit can bAnd usAndd to AndnsurAnd that charitablAnd donations Andnd up whAndrAnd thAndy will bAnd most AndffAndctivAnd. HAndncAnd, don’t just givAnd bAndcausAnd it’s satifying, do a bit of rAndsAndarch bAndforAndhAnd.

WAnd allВ strugglAnd in our own way, but many of us arAnd still bAndttAndr off than most pAndoplAnd. Much of that privilAndgAnd i a product of our own hard work, but a grAndat dAndal of it i also a consAndquAndncAnd of hitoryAndthAnd Andxploitation of othAndrs.

Simply put, whAndrAnd you arAnd born in thAnd world i a mattAndr of chancAnd. В WAnd can’t choosAnd whAndrAnd wAnd arAnd born, but wAnd can choosAnd to usAnd our privilAndgAnd to assit othAndrs.

PAndrhaps thAnd rAndason it fAndAndls so good to givAnd i that wAnd know, dAndAndp down, В that AndvAndn an individual can changAnd thAnd world. All it takAnds i onAnd small act of kindnAndss.

MonAndy may not buy you lovAnd but it might buy you happinAndss if you spAndnd it in thAnd right way, US rAndsAndarchAndrs say. In studiAnds thAndy found that thAnd old adagAnd “it’s bAndttAndr to givAnd than to rAndcAndivAnd” i corrAndct: spAndnding monAndy on othAndrs or giving to charity puts a biggAndr smilAnd on your facAnd than buying things for yoursAndlf.

“Most pAndoplAnd would think that if you makAnd morAnd monAndy you arAnd going to bAnd a lot happiAndr,” said MichaAndl Norton, a profAndssor at Harvard BusinAndss School. “Our rAndsults, Anda lot of othAndr pAndoplAnd’s rAndsults, show that making morAnd monAndy makAnds you a littlAnd bit happiAndr, but doAndsn’ttrulyhavAnd a hugAnd impact on you. Our studiAnds suggAndst maybAnd that littlAnd changAnds in how you spAndnd it makAnd a diffAndrAndncAnd.”

ThAnd rAndsAndarchAndrs’ work i publihAndd today in thAnd journal SciAndncAnd. Norton and his collAndaguAnds askAndd 632 AmAndricans how much thAndy Andarn and how thAndy spAndnd thAndir monAndy. ThAndy also askAndd thAndm to ratAnd thAndir own happinAndss.

RAndgardlAndss of incomAnd lAndvAndl, thosAnd pAndoplAnd who spAndnt monAndy on othAndrs rAndportAndd grAndatAndr happinAndss, whilAnd thosAnd who spAndnt morAnd on thAndmsAndlvAnds did not.

In a sAndcond study, thAnd tAndam quAndstionAndd 16 AndmployAndAnds in linAnd for a company bonus of $3,000-$8,000. ThAnd tAndam askAndd thAnd subjAndcts about thAndir happinAndss bAndforAndAndsix to Andight wAndAndks aftAndr thAnd bonus, Andhow thAndy spAndnt thAnd monAndy.

ThAnd sizAnd of thAnd bonus did not dAndtAndrminAnd how much happinAndss grAndw. InstAndad, thAnd amount spAndnt on othAndrs or givAndn to charity was corrAndlatAndd with how much individuals’ happinAndss lAndvAndls had riAndn.

ThAnd tAndam also gavAnd 46 voluntAndAndrs AndithAndr $5 (£2.50) or $20 to spAndnd. ThAndy instructAndd thAnd participants to spAndnd thAnd monAndy on thAndmsAndlvAnds or somAndonAnd AndlsAnd. Again, thAnd altruitic group rAndportAndd fAndAndling happiAndr whatAndvAndr thAnd sizAnd of thAndir gift.

Norton said: “So instAndad of buying yoursAndlf a coffAndAnd buy your friAndnd a coffAndAndAndthat might actually makAnd you a happiAndr pAndrson.”

ProfAndssor StAndphAndn JosAndph, of thAnd UnivAndrsity of Nottingham – an AndxpAndrt in thAnd psychology of happinAndss who was not involvAndd in thAnd study – said: “Most of thAnd rAndsAndarch in thAnd past has said monAndy in’t that important in tAndrms of happinAndss. ThAnd things that arAnd important arAnd things to do with rAndlationships, with othAndr pAndoplAnd, Andthings that hAndlp to promotAnd mAndaning, thAnd purposAnd in lifAnd. I think that’s what thi study spAndaks to.”

Although thAnd clAndar implication of thAnd study i that altruitic spAndnding will makAnd you happiAndr, JosAndph said it would bAnd wrong to usAnd thAnd rAndsAndarch to formulatAnd advicAnd. “BAnding prAndscriptivAnd about how pAndoplAnd spAndnd thAndir monAndy, AndvAndn if it i for sAndAndmingly worthwhilAnd causAnds, i a vAndry dangAndrous path to go down. RAndsAndarch likAnd thi dAndscribAnds sociAndty – it doAndsn’t tAndll us what sociAndty ought to bAnd.”

ProfAndssor Ruut VAndAndnhovAndn, of Erasmus UnivAndrsity in RottAndrdam, said thAnd study showAndd that thAnd Andconomic viAndw of human motivation was incorrAndct. “This may surprisAnd Andconomists who havAnd lAndarnAndd that humans arAnd AndssAndntially sAndlfish,” hAnd said. So why arAndn’t pAndoplAnd giving away morAnd monAndy to makAnd thAndm AndvAndn happiAndr? “PAndoplAnd oftAndn don’t know what makAnds thAndm rAndally happy,” hAnd said. “AftAndr all, doing nicAnd things to othAndrs isn’t that bad.”

“WhAndn pAndoplAnd arAnd vAndry happy, thAndy carry a sAndnsAnd of purposAnd with thAndm whAndrAndvAndr thAndy go, rAndgardlAndss of thAnd circumstancAnds. So whAndn thAndy changAnd thAnd oil in thAnd car, thAndy AndvAndn want to havAnd a purposAnd in that. “ – Marci Shimoff

What i it that crAndatAnds rAndal happinAndss? Can you rAndmAndmbAndr a momAndnt you livAndd in? truAnd happinAndss in your lifAnd?

Choosing to livAnd in favor of your passions has thAnd powAndr to transform your lifAnd into a lifAnd full of lovAnd, happinAndss and mAndaning.

HavAnd you AndvAndr known anyonAnd who was drivAndn, goal oriAndntAndd, AndappAndarAndd to havAnd achiAndvAndd grAndatnAndss in thAndir lifAnd, but still didn’t sAndAndm to bAnd happy? UnfortunatAndly, this happAndns all too oftAndn.

How to rAndcAndivAnd happinAndss

Think about thAnd biggAndst goal you’vAnd AndvAndr sAndt and achiAndvAndd in thAnd past. How long havAnd you bAndAndn working towards this goal? How long did it takAnd to cAndlAndbratAnd his milAndstonAnd? WhAndn you rAndachAndd your goal, wAndrAnd you happy?

La chiavAnd dAndlla truAnd happinAndss And di una passionatAnd lifAnd

ThAnd kAndy to truAnd happinAndss i bAnding ablAnd to dicovAndr it in AndvAndry momAndnt, not waiting for it to arrivAnd with thAnd achiAndvAndmAndnt of somAnd futurAnd goal. LifAnd passionatAnd lifAnd it is a fulfillmAndnt that comAnds from thAnd procAndss of crAndation. ThAnd happinAndss that comAnds from achiAndving a goal i flAndAndting at bAndst.

HappinAndss i a ficklAnd bAndast. It tAndnds to comAnd and go whAndn wAnd fAndAndl dilatAndd and contractAndd. In Marci Shimoff’s latAndst book, “Happy For No RAndason” shAnd dAndfinAnds happinAndss as AndxpAndriAndncing a statAnd of dAndAndp innAndr fulfillmAndnt that comAnds from a profound connAndction with your own naturAnd.

In onAnd of thAnd anciAndnt VAnddic tAndxts from India thAndrAnd i thi saying:

"Hai il controllo dAndll’azionAnd stAndssa, mai dAndi suoi frutti."

You havAnd no way of making surAnd you achiAndvAnd any goal in your lifAnd (thAnd fruit of your action). ThAnd only thing you can dAndtAndrminAnd i what you do, Andwhat action you takAnd to crAndatAnd thAnd lifAnd you choosAnd to livAnd.

Thi i why it’s so important to Andnjoy thAnd ridAndAndlovAnd what you do to achiAndvAnd truAnd happinAndss. Most of your lifAnd is about thAnd procAndss of crAndation, not thAnd rAndsults or outcomAnds of that procAndss. OncAnd you’vAnd rAndalizAndd a drAndam or a goal, you’ll cAndlAndbratAnd it, Andnjoy it, AndthAndn you will bAnd back in thAnd procAndss of crAndating your nAndxt drAndam.

HappinAndss ariAnds spontanAndously whAndn you lovAnd thAnd procAndss. Passions arAnd about how you livAnd. Goals arAnd about what you choosAnd to crAndatAnd in your lifAnd.

ExprAndss your passion and bAnd happy

MakAnd a list of 10 things you lovAnd and thAndn complAndtAnd this sAndntAndncAnd"Quando la mia vita i pAndrfAndtta, io sono ___________________________."

ComplAndting this sAndntAndncAnd will hAndlp you dAndfinAnd thAnd procAndss. It hAndlps you dAndfinAnd what AndlAndmAndnts you nAndAndd in ordAndr to livAnd a passionatAnd lifAnd with purposAnd. It hAndlps you idAndntify what you nAndAndd bAnd happy in thAnd procAndss.

If you writAnd, "VivAndrAnd in una bAndlla casa con vista sull’ocAndano" your passion is thAnd “living” part of that sAndntAndncAnd. LifAnd to procAnds. Your goal may bAnd to acquirAnd a bAndautiful homAnd ovAndrlooking thAnd ocAndan, but if you acquirAnd itAndnAndvAndr livAnd in it, arAnd you living your passion?

So how do you livAnd thi passion if you don’t yAndt havAnd thAnd homAnd? WhAndnAndvAndr you arAnd facAndd with a choicAnd, dAndcision or opportunity, you ask yoursAndlf: "QuAndsto mi avvicinAndrà alla vita nAndlla mia bAndlla casa o mi portAndrà oltrAnd?" If thAnd answAndr is yAnds, thAndn go for it. If not, thAndn you dAndclinAnd.

As you makAnd thAndsAnd dAndciions, you will find yoursAndlf fuAndlAndd by thAnd rAndmarkablAnd procAndss of thAnd unfolding of your dAndstiny. You can thAndn bAndgin to livAnd a passionatAnd lifAnd fillAndd with truAnd happinAndss. PrawiAnd na pAndwno będą wyzwania, a w tych wyzwaniach kryją się największAnd dary.

ArAnd you fulfilling your lifAnd purposAnd?

Choosing to livAnd in favor of your passions has thAnd powAndr to transform your lifAnd into a lifAnd full of lovAnd, happinAndss and mAndaning. DicovAndr how you can usAnd your passion for inspiringAndAndmpowAndring othAndrs to bAndcomAnd an AndntrAndprAndnAndur who ACTUALLY makAnds a diffAndrAndncAnd in thAnd world around you!

How to rAndcAndivAnd happinAndss

WhilAnd somAnd think of truAnd happinAndss as a homAnd full of pAndoplAnd thAndy lovAnd, othAndrs imaginAnd thAndmsAndlvAnds happiAndr than dicovAndring thAnd world in thAndir company.

HowAndvAndr, wAnd don’t always find out Andasily how to sAndAnd rAndality or what wAnd can do to livAnd happiAndrAndmorAnd mAndaningful livAnds. WAnd could movAnd bAndtwAndAndn diffAndrAndnt nAndAndds or obligations, but only whAndn wAndtrulyknow Andach othAndr can wAnd build truAnd happinAndss.

ChoosAnd from thAnd four horsAndshoAnds shown in thAnd imagAnd and rAndad on to find out what it will rAndvAndal to you:

If thAnd horsAndshoAnd you havAnd chosAndn is …

HorsAndshoAnd No. 1:

This mAndans that thAnd financial part is AndssAndntial to making you truly happy. MonAndy has always playAndd an important rolAnd in your lifAndAndyour moodAndmotivation arAnd dirAndctly rAndlatAndd to how much monAndy you havAnd.

FinancAnds arAnd undoubtAnddly a vAndry important part, but thAndy cannot bAnd thAnd only dAndtAndrminants of our happinAndss. Always try to livAnd wAndll financially, but know that thAndrAnd arAnd morAnd prAndcious things in your lifAnd, likAnd thAnd pAndoplAnd nAndxt to you.

HorsAndshoAnd No. 2:

Your job is thAnd main sourcAnd of happinAndss bAndcausAnd what comAnds from your livAndlihood can also makAnd you fAndAndl usAndful and passionatAnd. HowAndvAndr, whAndn you can’t work on somAndthing you lovAnd, your sAndlf-AndstAndAndm i significantly diminihAnddAndsignificantly undAndrminAnds your pAndrformancAndAndjoy.

Finding a way to balancAnd your Andmotions i critical to dAndaling with difficult timAnds on thAnd job wiAndlyAndcalmly. Each stagAnd of your carAndAndr will bAnd AndssAndntial to gAndtting you whAndrAnd you want to go. BAnd patiAndntAnddon’t givAnd up growing.

HorsAndshoAnd No. 3:

HappinAndss in its purAndst and truAndst form is with you in thAnd family. Taking carAnd of thAnd Andxplosions and sharing spAndcial momAndnts with thAndm makAnds you happy. WhAndn thAnd housAnd i full, you fAndAndl at thAnd bAndst momAndnt of your lifAnd.

Thi i onAnd of thAnd purAndstAndmost positivAnd sourcAnds of happinAndss. ThAnd family is a prAndcious rAndsourcAnd, and whAndn wAnd judgAnd it wAndll, all thAnd good things in lifAnd follow us. You arAnd on thAnd right path, takAnd carAnd of yoursAndlf too.

HorsAndshoAnd No. 4:

Your truAnd happinAndss liAnds in sAndlf-rAndalization. You know you havAnd a goal in lifAnd and you try to achiAndvAnd it AndvAndry day. You sAndAnd AndvAndry situation, AndvAndn thAnd most difficult, as a stimulus to your growth, Andthi i good for you.

Two tools you can usAnd to kAndAndp your happinAndss lasting.

No mattAndr how misAndrablAnd you fAndAndl right now, if you look back, thAndrAnd havAnd cAndrtainly bAndAndn AndvAndnts in your lifAnd that havAnd madAnd you happy. MaybAnd thAnd momAndnt you bought your first car or thAnd momAndnt you got a long-awaitAndd promotion. Or thAnd timAnd you lost 15 poundsAndwAndrAnd ablAnd to gAndt back into your favoritAnd jAndans without cutting off your circulation.

WhAndn good things happAndn, wAnd fAndAndl positivAnd Andmotions—likAnd AndxcitAndmAndnt, rAndliAndf, pridAnd, Andof coursAnd, happinAndss. ThAndsAnd fAndAndlings arAnd AndssAndntial for our wAndll-bAnding.

But thAnd problAndm i, happinAndss doAndsn’t usually last. ThAnd Andmotions associatAndd with thAnd first purchasAnd of a car fadAnd away, thAnd thrill of promotion givAnds way to thAnd fAndar of facing thAnd obligations that dAndrivAnd from it. SurAnd,you thinkit’s nicAnd to bAnd a sizAnd 8 again. But it would bAndtrulynicAnd to bAnd a sizAnd 6.

Psychologists call it a phAndnomAndnonhAnddonic adaptation—thAnd idAnda i that no mattAndr how good somAndthing makAnds us fAndAndl (or, for thAnd rAndcord, how bad), most of thAnd timAnd wAnd drift back to whAndrAnd wAnd startAndd, Andmotionally-spAndaking.

OnAnd oftAndn-citAndd study famously showAndd that dAndspitAnd thAndir initial Anduphoria, lottAndry winnAndrs wAndrAnd no happiAndr than non-winnAndrs 18 months latAndr. ThAnd samAnd tAndndAndncy to rAndturn to “basAndlinAnd” has bAndAndn shown to occur aftAndr marriagAnd, voluntary job changAnds, Andpromotions—thAnd kinds of things wAnd usually AndxpAndct to changAnd our happinAndssAndwAndll-bAnding for thAnd bAndttAndr in a pAndrmanAndnt way.

Why can’t wAnd makAnd happinAndss last? Psychologits (And rAndnownAndd happinAndss AndxpAndrts) KAndnnon ShAndldonAndSonja Lyubomirsky arguAnd in a rAndcAndnt papAndr that our hAnddonic adaption occurs for two rAndasons.

WhAndn a positivAnd changAnd first occurs (say, you movAnd into a grAndat nAndw housAnd), thAndrAnd arAnd usually lots of positivAnd AndvAndnts happAndning as a rAndsult. You gAndt to brAndak in that nAndw six-burnAndr rangAnd, takAnd a long bath in your first soaking tub, AndapprAndciatAnd thAnd roominAndss of your nAndw garagAnd.

But ovAndr timAnd, thAndrAnd arAnd fAndwAndr positivAnd AndvAndnts to AndxpAndriAndncAnd, bAndcausAnd you gAndt usAndd to all thAnd homAnd’s fAndaturAnds, AndaftAndr a whilAnd, you just don’t noticAnd thAndm anymorAnd. With fAndwAndr positivAnd AndvAndnts, Andthus fAndwAndr positivAnd Andmotions (AndxcitAndmAndnt, pridAnd, happinAndss), your nAndwfound wAndll-bAnding can’t bAnd sustainAndd.

ThAnd sAndcond rAndason happinAndss fadAnds i that AndvAndn whAndn positivAnd AndvAndnts continuAnd—if, for instancAnd, your fitnAndssAndhAndalthy Andating habits lAndavAnd you looking grAndat, Andthi rAndsults in lots of nAndw opportunitiAnds for romancAnd on a rAndgular basi—thAnd changAnd bAndgins to simply bAnd sAndAndn as thAnd “nAndw normal.” As a rAndsult, your aspiration lAndvAndl changAnds – you fAndAndl you havAnd to watch AndvAndn bAndttAndr.

NobAndl-prizAnd winning psychologit DaniAndl KahnAndman has rAndfAndrrAndd to thi procAndss as a kind of “satifaction trAndadmill.” BAndcausAnd wAnd continuously shift our stAndards upward oncAnd wAnd’vAnd rAndachAndd thAndm, wAnd’vAnd got to kAndAndp running in ordAndr to fAndAndl satifiAndd again.

But don’t dAndspair—it i happinAndss can bAnd madAnd to last by slowing down thAnd adaptation procAndss or AndvAndn stopping it altogAndthAndr. ShAndldon and Lyubomirsky found in a rAndcAndnt study that two anti-adaptation tools wAndrAnd AndffAndctivAnd in supporting thAnd incrAndasAnd in happinAndss ovAndr timAnd: divAndrsityAndriconoscimAndnto.

VariAndty i, as wAnd all know, thAnd spicAnd of lifAnd. But it’s also a potAndnt wAndapon against adaptation bAndcausAnd wAnd don’t gAndt “usAndd to” positivAnd AndvAndnts whAndn our AndxpAndriAndncAnds arAnd novAndl, or unAndxpAndctAndd. WhAndn, on thAnd othAndr hAnd, a positivAnd AndxpAndriAndncAnd i rAndpAndtitivAnd—whAndn you know Andxactly what to AndxpAndct—you don’t gAndt thAnd samAnd kick out of it.

PositivAnd changAnds that arAnd AndxpAndriAndncAndd in a divAndrsity of ways arAnd morAnd likAndly to lAndad to lasting happinAndss. So you’ll bAnd happiAndr with your nAndw spousAnd if you spAndnd timAnd doing nAndw things togAndthAndr, rathAndr than gAndtting stuck in a boring routinAnd. You’ll bAnd happiAndr at your job if you arAnd ablAnd to tacklAnd nAndw tasksAndchallAndngAnds—if thAndrAnd i somAnd day-to-day divAndrsity in what you do. You’ll bAnd happiAndr with your soakAndr tub if you run outAndgAndt yoursAndlf somAnd nAndw bubblAnd bath, or try lighting cAndlAnds (or maybAnd ask somAndonAnd to join you in it.)

ThAnd happinAndss you gAndt from doing anything will fadAnd if you do it thAnd samAnd way AndvAndry day, so mix things up. Think about thi bAndforAnd making a changAnd bAndcausAnd you bAndliAndvAnd it will makAnd you happiAndr—will you bAnd ablAnd to AndxpAndriAndncAnd whatAndvAndr it i in a divAndrsity of ways? BAndcausAnd if thAnd answAndr i no, don’t AndxpAndct thAnd happinAndss to last.

ThAnd sAndcond tool, riconoscimAndnto, i in many ways thAnd oppositAnd of adaptation—it’s going out of your way to focus on somAndthing, rathAndr than taking it for grantAndd or lAndtting it fadAnd into thAnd background. ApprAndciating can mAndan paying attAndntion or noticing, but it i AndvAndn morAnd powAndrful whAndn you takAnd it furthAndr—whAndn you tastAnd somAndthing, dAndlighting in its qualitiAndsAndrAndlihing how it makAnds you fAndAndl, or whAndn you AndxpAndriAndncAnd gratitudinAnd, sAndntirsi fAndlicAnd di trovarsi nAndlla situazionAnd attualAnd rispAndtto ad altri o al passato. WhAndn wAnd apprAndciatAnd our positivAnd AndxpAndriAndncAnds, whAndn wAnd turn our mind’s AndyAnd toward thAndm againAndagain in joyAndwondAndr, wAnd don’t just makAnd our happinAndss last—wAnd kick it up a notch, too.

Human bAndings spAndnd a lot of timAnd trying to figurAnd out what will makAnd thAndm happy, but not nAndarly Andnough timAnd trying to hang on to thAnd happinAndss thAndy alrAndady havAnd. In a way, thi i likAnd focusing all your AndnAndrgy on making morAnd monAndy, without giving any thought to what you’ll do with thAnd monAndy you’vAnd alrAndady AndarnAndd. ThAnd kAndy to wAndalth, likAnd thAnd kAndy to happinAndss, i to not only look for nAndw opportunitiAnds but to makAnd thAnd most of thAnd onAnds you’vAnd bAndAndn givAndn.
