All people want to be happy. We wish each other to be happy every day. But, why don't we feel happy enough? It is probably because that we actually don't know how to be happy. Most of us feel that we could 'gain' happiness after a hard work or pain. Some even says that those hard moments would compensate you later, so you need to be patient until you reach somewhere. But in my opinion, if we are unhappy, we can't do anything. It is easier than you assume, happiness is nearby. Those are 3 steps that I usually use to find happiness in my daily life.
First, do some exercises. Since I am a student who takes 11 courses in a semester, I don't have enough time to exercise. Therefore, I found dad time that I can do small exercises like stretching or walking. When I feel tired, I choose to walk. As I mentioned before, I have no enough time to do, I took off the subway or train much before than my destination. While walking, I face many unusual things like sellers in the streets or people who I don't know. Not only it helps physically move, it also helps us to encounter new things. Meeting extraordinary things made me feel gratitude on my daily life.
If I can't satisfied even I walked a lot, I meet people who I love. Those could be friends, seniors or even teachers. Through talking with people, our distracting thoughts are organized. Because we need to communicate with them, our brain works much organized way than alone. Usually, we don't feel any happiness since we are in complicated situation or thoughts. Thus, those talks assist our mind to be calm. Moreover, we can get wisdom from them by listening what they already experienced or what they think about. The best thing is – we can eat delicious dishes in a fancy restaurant also!
Last but not least, we need to care about ourselves. Modern people are so busy that they don't have enough time to be alone. They even should go out on weekend for some extra works or appointment. But in this case, you should make time for meeting yourself. In the Orient, we call it as meditation. Most of the cases, we do it by ourselves, in quiet room or place. But you can do it practically when you take a shower or listen to music.
I've listed 3 steps that I use for daily happiness. It is a first stepping stone to enter great happiness. You only can achieve something when you feel safe mentally. Lack doesn't mean unhappiness. Desiring something also doesn't mean unhappiness. Be firm and keep it simple. Any single tiny things can make you feel happy whole day. Try to find motive act or point for small happiness as much as possible. If you don't have any now, just follow 3 steps that I explained before. I hope all of you feel happy today!
