Within our community of strong, vibrant and visible women over 50, we talk a lot about happiness… because who doesn’t want to be happy? But as you may know, happiness isn’t always just something that happens to us. Luckily, everyone has the power to make small changes in their behavior, surroundings, and relationships that can help set us on course to live a long, healthy and happy life! Today, I’ve rounded up a few ways that can help you lead a happy life, but you can find much more information here.
Let’s Talk Happiness!
- Use your mind. Happiness often comes from within, so challenge your negative thoughts, treat yourself like a friend and approach every day with as much optimism as possible!
- Find your happy place. Did you know the place you live, including your home and neighborhood, have an effect on your happiness? So declutter your space, spend time in nature and choose a community that makes you feel at home.
- Build robust relationships. At our age, darlings, it’s no secret that we should surround ourselves with the people who make us happy. So why is this sometimes hard to do? Spend time with the people who bring out the best in you, get a new pet or try embracing your solitude!
- Choose kindness. Being kind to others is a sure path to happiness, but don’t forget to also be kind to yourself! You deserve the best!
