Staying happy is way more difficult than we think it is. Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows and a never-ending cycle of work and the pressure of society. In between all these things we need to find happiness as well that gives meaning to our life. Without staying happy we can not live our life to the fullest.
Try out something new or something different from your daily life and incorporate certain habits in your life that will help you to stay satisfactory and earn happiness in life.
Avoid comparing yourself to others
This is easier said than done, but try to avoid comparing your social life to anyone else’s. It’s not the number of friends you have or the frequency of your social outings that matters. It’s what works for you.
Remember, you really have no way of knowing if someone with a bunch of friends and a stuffed social calendar is actually happy.
Take a phone break
Noticing a theme here? Cellphones and social media have undoubtedly changed the concept of being alone.
Is anybody really alone when they can pick up their phone and text or call just about anyone? Or check in on what that high school acquaintance is up to without even having to talk to them?
Take a step back from social media
Social media isn’t inherently bad or problematic, but if scrolling through your feeds makes you feel left out and stressed, take a few steps back. That feed doesn’t tell the whole story. Not by a long shot.
You have no idea if those people are truly happy or just giving the impression that they are. Either way, it’s no reflection on you. So, take a deep breath and put it in perspective.
Perform a test run and ban yourself from social media for 48 hours. If that makes a difference, try giving yourself a daily limit of 10 to 15 minutes and stick to it.
