Five tips to personal happiness.
Connect with Saline County FCS agent Kris Boulton.
What makes you happy? Only 10-15% of Americans report being happy. Learn five tips
that can increase your happiness. Will winning the lottery make you happy? Not likely, according to David Myers, a happiness
Money does not buy happiness. Rich people are no happier than people with average
incomes. In addition, older people are neither happier than young people, and men
have no advantage over women. So, who is happy?
Here are five tips to promote personal happiness and to help you find joyfulness for
you and your family. In this unexpected time in our lives. Only ten to fifteen percent
of Americans identify themselves as truly happy.
Now, certain personality traits, such as being an extrovert, being agreeable, conscientious,
they're related to happiness. However, in the right situation, anyone can be happy.
People that are most happy are the ones that their work and their personal life provide
them an opportunity to use their special set of skills.
Happiness is also linked to meaningful relationships. Individuals who are happy are
supported by close relationships with family members, friends, and fellow employees.
Such relationships help fulfill our need to belong to something bigger than ourselves.
Forget the lottery ticket instead. Make time for a friend. Help a fellow worker, set
your sights on a challenge, and enjoy the experience. Look to your network of friends
and family. Use your skills to make a difference whether at home or at work.
Hard work can be fulfilling, as you see and believe in the purpose of the task. What
challenging task can you take on?
Service helps to connect us with others. It shows we care for others and helps them
care for us. Service builds relationships.
Often, it's been said if you smile, the world smiles with you. Having a cheerful disposition
can dramatically influence how people interact with you. When we are happy, we draw
people to us and develop a greater support system.
Even a brief exchange of smiles connects us momentarily to others. So, make a point
to smile. It's kind of hard right now while wearing masks, but you can always smile
with your eyes.
Participate in a club, a church group or community group. It can provide many opportunities.
It can broaden your network of relationships, provide opportunities for service, and
provide a meaningful cause or purpose to which you can contribute your skill sets.
Give someone a break.
You might be cut off on the road and begin thinking all drivers are rude, or someone
may have forgotten your special day. When things do not go your way, you can provide
helpful feedback if necessary. But don't be disagreeable. Don't harbor your feelings.
Don't process it over and over and over again. Forgive, forget, and move on. Can you
give someone a break today?
