Don’t you wish happiness and confidence were something you could go buy at the store? Unfortunately, that isn’t the case and even the happiest of people have days they would like to feel just a little more relaxed, sunny or confident.
One of the best ways I’ve found to boost one’s happiness and over all mood is through self-affirmations. Even if no one else around you says kind things about you, you can certainly tell them to yourself. In doing this you will literally start to reprogram your mind to be more positive too.
It can be hard at first and self doubt and negativity may creep into you mind. Continue to focus on the positives though and remind yourself things like, “ you are smart, you are brave, you are unique, you are beautiful and (most importantly) you are worthy”! Let these positive affirmations resonate within you.
Like anything worth it you’ve got to work for it and being happy is no different. Don’t let the negativity in your own mind or comments from others get you down friends. Focus on the good things you have in life (even if they seem like small things). If you will do this everyday you’ll naturally start seeing the good around you and your many blessings. Before you know it you will have kicked the negativity out and let the happiness move in!
