Hi. Welcome to my channel. I'm your host,��August��Lim.��Every week I'll be bringing you either and on the go guided meditation, a discussion on wellness backed by modern evidence based research or tips on living a happier life. So I invite you to get comfortable wherever you are enjoined me for our weekly Lusa In this week's episode, we are going to tap into eight simple ways to be happier with the new year right around the corner. It's never too early to start thinking of ways we can live a fuller life and get prepared to create 2000 twenties New Year's resolution. Now, whether you were just looking to excavate new ways to draw joy into your busy life or make serious moves towards health and wellness, thes eight friendly tips only require an open mind and a willingness to receive the mental peace that is your birthright. So let's get started.��Tip number one:��Be compassionate with yourself. No matter where you are in your life, you are not too late nor too early. In fact, you must believe that you are right on time. You've come a long way through a route only you know during the buffer of time, it's common to forget about this truth and dismiss our personal victories. It's just much easier to focus on our own. Don falls that happened along the way, but right now it's time to stop judging yourself and instead give credit for overcoming those past difficulties and for the ones to come when you make a silly mistake. Or Joan accomplished all that you intended to in a day because you slept through your alarm or felt a little lazier than usual. Remember to forgive yourself. You are only human, and the downfalls are necessary so that you may learn and grow from them. Something kind and respectful thoughts because you were always listening. Appreciate your strengths. Have knowledge or weaknesses and be patient and supportive in your growth tip number to create balance. Workaholics. I am talking to you. It is entirely possible to hang out with friends and family while still tackling your responsibilities. You can even find a new hobby toe love or resurface an old one. In fact, people tend to work better when they put their health and happiness first, when you are present and chemically balanced productivity soars and you are naturally happier. In a��Harvard study on happiness, researchers followed the lives of many different men from all different backgrounds and walks of life. Behind them were various differences, including income, race, age, health and other pieces of their personal profile. As all of the information was grossly collected and evaluated, the results showed that those with healthier and fuller relationships with their loved ones were the happiest. Too often, when work and life balance is brought up in conversation, it seems to bend towards the idea that there is too much playtime and not enough work. But in truth, making time to do the things you enjoy will prevent burnout and natural wear and terror. However, it is important to be able to tell the difference between balance and just trying to keep up with everybody else. Which brings us to our next tip. So here we go. Tip number three. Stop comparing. A fantastic part of social media is how easy it is to connect with people all over the world, from your old classmates to your distant cousin you haven't seen in years to complete strangers. Their��flashy posts are shared in real time, but they do not reflect real life whatsoever. Whether edits are involved or not, Everybody can control what is seen online and how they want their lives to be perceived. It is not necessarily a bad thing to curate a series of posts in accordance to one's aesthetic, but if it starts to affect you, take a social media hiatus and take them, often watching others get married, graduate from school, go on amazing vacations, land an awesome job or hit other milestones you may have not gotten to yet could make one self critical. It's only human. It is human nature to constantly compare and compete with others. But it is important to remember that would everyone posts is just the tip of the iceberg, where spectacular moments are shared for public viewing and underneath lies there humbling moments that are more personal. Nevertheless, their journey has nothing to do with you, and you have one of your own to focus on, and your journey can consist of a variety of amazing things of your choosing. Which brings us to our next tip tip number four. By less things and more experiences, as tempting as it is to get your hands on the latest things that feed your passion. Money is typically in exchange for hard work to balance out your labor. It may be a good idea. Toe purchase the positive equivalent of that experience, like a vacation. Ah, festival or go see a Broadway show, maybe even visit a restaurant you've been needing. The chai experiences never die, Even if the things that helped create those memories are gone, Spending money on adventures will last a lifetime longer than anything tangible. But if that isn't in your budget right now, never fear. There are still many things that happen naturally that you can enjoy while living this human experience. So I bring you our next tip Tip number five:��Ride the waves, don't try to make them. Trust me, that's a job for nature. You might be thinking, all right, what the heck am I talking about in this tip? I'm talking about good old vibes and how everything is comprised the vibes or energy waves. If you could agree that every piece of our makeup molecularly downsizes��to a form of energy, you can surrender to the idea that this entire universe is working in perfect harmony. Better yet that the entire universe is conspiring in your favor, be content and knowing that things will fill a purpose, whether it's clear to you or not. After all is done, you are still alive and things inevitably settle down. So what? Go of the personal force you exert on situations that refuse it and return to a peace of mind by flailing and rough waters. You may drown, so instead, have fun with the currents beyond your control or ride them out. Tip number six Optimize and believe in your potential. Your desired life will manifest itself when you work for it more than you dream about it when you have a clear goal in mind that the universe will respond to this by aligning your life with a path that introduces practical ways of achieving that goal. Whether it is a personal goal or a professional goal, work is required. The good news is that you are competent and in control of how well this work is done. The first step is showing up for yourself every day and believing it is the easiest and hardest step in achieving your goal for more. In depth discussion about this universal law. I would recommend reading the book. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Tip number seven:��Exercise!��Exercise does not only benefit the physical body, but the spiritual body does some serious rewiring to make you happy. The body naturally knows how to heal when we get cut or break a bone or body heals. The body does not know how to get sick. It was not created for that. Sickness is an unnatural result of neglect. When we exercise, our muscles grow strong, our joints remain active and our bones strengthen, all with the intention that we have in mind of being healthy -and��it is with that intention, action or work which we've previously talked about. So while your body gets stronger simultaneously, a release of dopamine and serotonin occurs and is vital to boosting moods, balancing your chemicals and inducing mindfulness. That brings about happier days. And here we are at our last tip. Number eight. Be bold and be grateful. It doesn't matter how old or young you are. This life still belongs to you, and it always will. Life's filled with many, many opportunities to create happiness, their founder than choices you make and in the perspectives you take, so be bold and take risks. Be ready to spend money, time, energy and even disappoint some people. Sometimes this is your life. Follow your heart and be grateful for the resource is you have and can use to experiment with. And as long as it harms no one and it is on your own dime your path to success will reveal itself. Step out of your comfort zone, especially if you think it may bring you closer to your desired life. Then be grateful for what you learn for a chief or both. Nobody knows how much time we have on Earth, so you die tomorrow. Then you'd be happy to know you've maximized your life. If you're scheduled to die in 100 years, then you have all that time to fix your doings. Think about it,��and remember, the worst thing that can happen usually isn't that bad. Be grateful for the freedom to dive into the unknown and still have any outcome work in your favor. Thes eight tricks have always worked in my favor, and I hope at least one tip from this list resonated with you. Piece is your birthright.
