What is happiness anyway? Is it a verb, does it come naturally or are some people lucky enough to be happy and others not? Many personal coaches agree that happiness is a state of being. A mental process in which love, appreciation, and abundance are felt. People who are happy are also more resilient. They are better able to withstand setbacks and laugh more.
How can you become happy?
There is not one straight answer to how someone becomes instantly happy, but Wassili Zafiris has been studying this for years and came to the following conclusions: 1 in 5 people have (had) a depression. The difference between the other four who have always been happy to a greater or lesser extent, have a clear inner landscape. Happy people have a very clear picture of the world, the people around them and for example about the future. They also often feel a very strong connection with others and nature.
People who are happy generally have the following qualities:
- Appreciation and admiration for great, but also very small things
- Awareness of their environment including family, friends, and nature.
- A lot of self-esteem and self-confidence, they can be there of their own accord.
- They make a lot of compliments and give constructive feedback.
- They see the humor of everything and experience setbacks as not a big deal.
Sports to be happy
It is well known that sports such as fitness or gym make you happy. This is due to the endorphins that are released during exercise. Endorphins are produced all day long in the brain and act as a kind of lucky drug. Exercise releases more endorphins and makes you feel happier. Personal Fitness Trainers at TheONE can tell you more about this.
Some people do not naturally produce enough endorphins, so exercising can be a remedy. If no endorphins are produced at all, only medicines can help. Consult a family doctor for more information.
Can everyone become happy?
Unless there is a physical disorder (this is rarely the case), everyone can become happy. Sometimes someone has had a lot of setbacks and a therapy is needed to deal with those setbacks. But because feeling happy is a mental process, everyone can learn to be happy with the guidance of a mental coach.
What stops someone from feeling happy?
It has been proven that an unhealthy lifestyle can impair your feeling of happiness. Poor eating, excessive alcohol consumption and drug use in almost all cases lead to a bad feeling. You are less able to cope with stress and even run the risk of getting a burnout in the event of a small setback. If you want to feel happy, make sure you eat and live healthy. Sufficient sleep is also part of this.
Can you be lonely and happy?
In general, people need other people to feel happy. In the absence of social contacts, the feeling of loneliness can disrupt the feeling of happiness. The lack of friends or family then becomes so strong that it prevails. Here, too, mental coaches at TheONE can offer a solution. Sometimes loneliness is caused by a lack of motivation to go out or even go on a date causes dilution of social contacts. Talk to a coach about this and life will look cheerful again.
