People’s perception of being happy is still the same since ancient times.
Human beings might have come closer, because of improvement in technology and communication systems, but the mental distance seems to increase with every passing day.
No matter what we do, how much we try, sometimes it’s hard to make ourselves happy.
Our efforts seem to fail.
The idea of not being happy is for ages.
We feel low and unsatisfactory with our living. Get depressed at times.
But it’s okay to feel like that. We all do at a point in time. Our whole life consists of deliberate attempts to make ourselves happy.
Isn’t it ironic, that even after pushing ourselves so hard, we fail at this?
We have to tackle so many stresses in a day. It becomes impossible to find an escape.
It’s okay to feel low and bad. Self-realization is vital.
Even I used to feel this way. But thankfully I had people to guide me through.
I could then see my faults, where I had gone wrong.
Being a happy person isn’t a one-day thing. It takes a proper understanding of your mind along with proper guidance.
Follow the two steps I’ve mentioned in this article. They worked for me and might help you too.
Step 1: I’ve listed down things that make us unhappy. Avoiding them could be a refuge.
Step 2: I’ve penned down the ways to follow after step 1.
Things to stay away from when nothing makes us feel happy:
1. Stop over-thinking:
Overthinkers generally tend to focus more on the future and the least on their present. Just realize one thing, if you die today, will there be any future? No. Right?
Let things just be. Don’t pressurize yourself over something. Mental stress is one of the ways one feels down. So stop doing that.
2. Stop watching awful news throughout the day:
News channels keep on highlighting awful news along with good news. If you focus on the bad and let go of the good, then your mindset is bound to change. It is your actions that are affecting you and not your fate. Switch to positive news and healthy options.
3. Stop blaming people for your actions:
Your actions are your deeds and you have committed and it’s your responsibility to accept that. Throwing garbage at people won’t make anything better for you. If you do such stuff, then try discontinuing them.
4. Stop sharing negativity:
Just because you don’t feel happy, you can’t make others feel the same. Again, this too won’t help you. This would only boost up your mental condition rather than satisfying you.
5. Stop wasting your time:
Don’t waste your time sitting on the couch, thinking that days will be like before, without doing anything. If you are unhappy about something, try to fix that. Being a waste won’t help.
Things to do when nothing makes you happy
1. Try finding the cause that’s causing the trouble:
Identifying the root cause is crucial when you are in some trouble. Try to make a list of things that you aren’t grateful for. It might be some person or some reason that is bothering you and stopping you from being happy.
