Nine Simple Principles for a Happier Life
By Ron Helman
Take care of yourself first:
Instead of focusing on others and trying to control or change other people, pay attention to yourself first. This is a distraction or avoidance mechanism to avoid working on what is necessary in order to create a real shift.
Stay present to what is in the NOW:
So much of our anxiety lives in the future.
Let go of the outcome and find joy NOW:
We can only do our very best so stop worrying about the future. You really have no idea what’s next.
Change your mind:
If your mind defaults to fearful thinking, get out the ‘remote control’ and tune into what you are grateful for and what IS working.
Choose to respond rather than react:
Take a moment and collect yourself. Find a response that will create clarity and connection.
Cultivate new behaviors:
Let go of what others think and listen to your own inner voice.
Find a lesson in every situation:
There is always a take away.
Let go of your judgments:
How we view others is a reflection of how we see ourselves.
Quiet your mind:
Simply sit still, eyes closed and listen to your breath go in and out like the waves of the ocean. You will regain a sense of self and that you are safe.
