The inspiration for today’s Feel Good Thoughts Podcast, has come from one my listeners Suzanne and the topic for today is ‘Keeping The Heart Happy’.
And I want to start with this inspiring feel good thought today which is;
‘YOU have a gift and that is the power to change your feeling at anytime, so today choose JOY, today choose HAPPY!’
I love this quote and recently a close friend of mine watched Inside Out, she then wrote to me and said ‘all I could think of the whole way through it was… OMG Joy is actually Joey!’ LOL…
And the reason why I live with JOY naturally is because I make the choice to choose happiness every single day.
Isn’t it amazing when we think that we all have the gift of choice, we can choose how we feel.
Today I want to share with you about how you can create a happy heart by simply choosing JOY and choosing LOVE and making the conscious decision daily to keep the heart happy.
But it begins with…
Honoring your feeling. When your are not happy, seek some happiness by doing one thing that you LOVE and think about the last time you were happy and tap into that energy.
Know your own happiness – Don’t compare to what makes someone else happy. Know what makes YOU happy!
Know what’s important to you – because what is important to you, makes you happy!
Do one thing a day that makes you happy!
It is important also to realise that a thankful heart is a happy heart, so continue to have gratitude daily and appreciate how awesome YOU are.
When was the last time you sat down and said ‘thank you’ to you or gave yourself some praise. We are great at giving others praise but it is just as important to do it for you too.
Giving yourself positive reinforcement helps you to increase your individual happiness.
Happiness notepad – At night write down 3 things that made you feel good or happy that day. Even on the days when you may have had challenges doing this small activity can help you to seek the good in the day.
Look for the lessons in situations – When times are challenging and the heart is feeling like it needs some strength, begin by looking for the lessons. When we seek lessons we seek appreciation, opportunity and growth which leads the heart back towards happiness.
So, there are a variety of ways of which we can keep the heart happy but it all really begins with YOU… seeking the choice to choose happiness, joy, positivity and love.
Light and happiness,
