Important 40 percent of happiness

"Functions can not always be happier, but there is no happiness without action." – Benjamin Disraeli

I think we live in very exciting times when it comes to our understanding of what makes us very happy in the long run. Until reliable recently (well, about 10 years ago) there was a general perception of personal development, and self-growth was directly divided into the middle. One half of the camp assigned the theory that "we are what we think" and that we can be powerful beyond the scale if we choose, but the other half will roll their eyes and can hardly hide from covering their dirty "trap!".

I remember my own internal conflict at the moment. While I was impressed with the idea of ​​working on myself and a spiritual path, I would help myself to cut an amazing future – and it has; o) – at the same time there was another part of me that was just out and out of science. I was willing to do as I had said to many philosophers and the default expert of the day but I would also like to know that there was a solid foundation for investing my trust in the principles I was studying.

Ideas like practicing daily gratitude and forgiveness enchanted me. Yes, it seemed very good when I did, but I was good at wondering if I was really a happier person or if I was just experiencing some "nice" feelings.

Sometimes I'm such a good spokesman for positive psychology; Now officially recognized science of how truly happy people must be truly satisfied. Thanks to the work of the organization, Dr. Martin Seligman (and many others since), we can not only continue to believe in the long-standing principles of personal development and spiritual sustainable care, but now there is a lot of experience to support the fact that these principles really reinforce our longstanding happiness.

Here is one of the most interesting things I have learned about the nature of happiness (look for the glorious book of Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky's "Happiness Happiness"). Having studied extensively under strict scientific conditions, psychologists can decide that the happiness we experience in our lives consists of:

50% Genetic "Set Point"
With clever exams (too clever to go into here !! ) It has become clear that half of all happiness we believe is due to a natural default level that is different for us each. This means that without anything happening, we will always return, at least, to the initial value of our happiness, after our lives have been shaken in some way (good or bad). It seems that some of them are better off track than others. It may also explain why some do not seem to be as excited about exciting events as we think they should do!

10% Circumstances
Staggeringly, only 1/10 of our experience of happiness is because the circumstances of our lives are. I can almost find opposition from some of you as you read this! (I know it was first with me). It seems quite anti-aggressive, but if you are used to living in a moderate manner, you earn a lot of money, only a temporary boost to your happiness at best. If you have always benefited from health, a dose of long-term illness will not necessarily make you miserable. Abandoning the slaughter to be better seems more often than not, that's not all that it's crazy. This is because it is in nature to adapt to environmental conditions very quickly. It is called "hedonic adaptation". Remember when you were very excited to buy something new; maybe a car, suit or even your house. Remember now how fast the item was found like other natural details of your life.

40% Random Activity
The desired activity is what we consciously make a decision to participate in. Depending on what this activity is, we will either experience an increase in real happiness or simply hang out about our default setpoint. What the research has uncoovered is that the happiest people in the world are the ones who make use of this 40% by doing regular things that help their spirits and help them look at their lives positively. By avoiding immersing themselves in any activity that acts as a reminder of what is really important to them (see suggestions in the homework section below), they are literally studying their neurology to "just be happy."

We can not control our genetic points and the change in our way of life is likely to bring our happiness up or down by 10%, but we have the ability to choose the quality we put our efforts and attention to. The good news is that it's 40% that can make the most wonderful difference to our overall survival.

The story of the story probably does not stop following all the good things you want in your life (more money, bigger houses, better cars, promotions, etc.). But do not expect those things to be the happiness you are looking for.

Create a list of content you have recently requested (including external performance indicators like power and status), since you have believed that they would make you happy.

Just like an experiment, for 30 days commit to stop working to get them and, instead, deliberately engage in one (… or some, … or all !!) of This daily work: [19659002] Gratitude – At the end of each day think about what you are very grateful for (people, things, talents, opportunities or something you think about). Make sure you connect emotionally with your gratitude.

Social Relationship – Plan to spend more quality time with your friends or find ways to enhance your social circle. Have fun.

Love – Do something every day to make a positive difference to someone else's life (it's important to do this out of love and not because you expect someone instead, o). A powerful way for you to benefit from this is to perform charity anonymously.

Health and Wellness – Make your own well-being a priority and do what you know to do better to think about yourself. Do not have to be a strict fitness period; might be more sleep, drink more water, take the stairs rather than lift, eat 5-day, etc. It is important to focus on respect for your body and soul.

Nurture Important Relationships – Treat the most important people in your life as they are the most important people in your life. Identify the areas of relationships you have been neglected and focus on strengthening these bonds.

Think – Make regular time to be quiet and still. Find some relaxing music or get a guided meditation card to help you, but whether you get a new talent to be present only at this moment.

Forgiveness – Define people, circumstances or events that you have kept frustrated. Do what you need to do, let go, thanks and forgive. As Mark Twain once said, "Forgiveness is the fragrance that shone purple on a cure that has crushed it."

By the end of 30 days, go back over the original list of "wills" and give an honest assessment of whether you want them and if so, please note if your attitude has changed around what you expect them to be for you.

Do you want great happiness!

Caution should be exercised. Namaste.


What makes people happy? 5 important factors to be congratulated

Different people have different views on what makes people happy. Some people say it is raising. Others would say that it has a great and meaningful life. There have even been several that have more accurate answers related to their personal lives.

All of these answers came home, of course. While everyone has their own opinion, some comprehensive things like those listed below can be considered to make people happy.

1. Family and Friends

One of the things that make people happy is the family of friends and family. The emotional support these people give you is priceless.

You probably do not love your mother's or father's insult, but to have family business or come together for the barbecue once while popping up your happiness. Having people around you you love, trust and take care makes you feel like you're not alone.

2. Give back

Helping others, whether they are on small or large roads, exacerbate the spirit of man as nothing else. Doing something for nothing could be completely contrary to what you've been taught, but types of generosity always leave you with a clear, blurred feeling.

Sharing wealth or time with others allows you to get the same positive energy from others. In addition, it may be important for other people to come back to you.

3. Remarkable Job

Working with a corresponding high salary is not always what makes people happy. In fact, these jobs often make people miserable (unless your heart is in what you do). Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to do their dream work. And not everyone finds meaning in their work.

You can try to improve this with volunteers in hospitals or environmental reasons during your free time. By finding meaning in what you do, you will feel fulfilled and have a sense of purpose.

4. Freedom

It's impossible to become truly happy when you're not even a little freedom in your life. Whether you can express yourself creatively or can choose yourself, personal freedom is important. Repressing yourself brings only a lot of negative emotions and dissatisfaction.

5. Success

Who does not want to succeed? People who have achieved personal or professional achievements in their lives are more likely to pursue other goals and try new experiences. They become more content with the policy that their lives are taking and are generally happier in the long run.

These are just some of the things that make people happy. It's not all about materialism. It is satisfying to find it in the simplest, leading parts.


Drug abuse and everything that affects the search for happiness

Unlawful drug abuse despite the law is often considered a personal choice, and many believe that in the spirit of antidepressants purchased to legalize. But then we also know that many people who use drugs can not control themselves and end up with drug abuse or drug abuse. Recently, this was discussed about the length of online thinking software. One thought teacher appeared in the discussion online:

"I believe that if you are using toxicity, regardless of what content, met, alcohol, cocaine … it does not matter when you start disturbing others citizens are entitled to adequate and peaceful existence, by fighting, causing an accident, the need for emergency services, distributed, etc., you are not only a criminal charged with an additional fee for drug abuse. "

Indeed, there is a problem and that Unfortunately, too often with pharmacists and drug-drug attempts. Another thought-designate member was in part in agreement with this statement and further said:

"I'm glad we agree on this point. The last point is that we are deliberately thinking that if we refuse people to experiment or decide say that it brushes under the blanket will rear the ugly head of surprises where all humanity is well received and I agree that living in denial of this real problem is nothing at all good at all and the current way of dealing with drug abuse here at country is not working. Mixed messages with "just say no" theme, as we say the children are bad news and tell them it's legal, easy to find and available, you see the problem. Have made it so social " okay "and so the children had a root bear but a shot of alcohol."

The debate took place on many sites and is far from on. Of course, the thinking theory needs more input before making any kind of solution or issue of any kind of report. We hope to have a national debate on this topic and join others who see problems and strive to get the best drug delivery in the American Society. Consider all this in 2006.


The real happiness of life

What is happiness? Where do we find it? How do we get it? I read to acknowledge that it's important to have enough money for our needs, but beyond that, money has little to do with true happiness.

Happiness is the innermost state we are looking for in our entire life. In our quest for real happiness in life, we experienced too much pain and sacrifice. There are even times when we lose our own source of happiness. But there are only a few who know that the real happiness lies within us.

Happiness does not always have to be successful, prosperous or educational. Really happiness always has root in unselfishness – she is in love with some kind. The present is an age of pleasure-search, and men are losing their sanity in a mad rush for emotions that make but fond and disappointing. In this day of falsification, adultery and basic imagery, the devil is busy but he has ever been in the history of mankind, in the production of joy, both old and new; and this offers him for sale in the most attractive fashion, which is incorrectly marked, & Happiness.

What is happiness then? How is it different than pleasure? Happiness does not understand any bad favorites, it is followed by no depressing reaction; It does not call repentance, does not regret it, does not repent; pleasure makes too often necessary repentance, pain and suffering; and if it's clean, it's a breakdown and destruction.

True happiness lives again and again in memory, always with renewal of original goodness; An instant dishonest pleasure can go with a coated stitch, which, like a thorn in the flesh, is always angry. Happiness is not in harmony with life, nor is it a joyous happiness.

It seems that happiness is something we all want but few find. Is it a career? Is happiness in our content? Looking for happiness in things will never be fulfilled. Finally, we find ourselves just looking further.

Do not take yourself too seriously. True perfection is actually accepting your imperfections. Thus, you are not struggling or rejecting yourself. Be a friend with yourself. Never knock you down because of too many emotional issues. It's natural to find everything, whatever it may be.

Try to ponder. There is an overwhelming number of studies that show how meditation changes the brain's brain in relation to pleasure and happiness and stimulates the feel-good aspect. Thinking of love and kindness makes you much happier! And the only way to know this is to try it, so do not hesitate. It has been proven that even as 10 minutes of meditation daily can lead to physical changes in the brain that add strength and focus, calm the nervous system and help you become good and compassionate and even more humorous.

Release negativity. Learn to forgive and forget. See all challenges as an opportunity for further growth. Express gratitude for what you have. Do not worry about the little things. Take plenty of "worrying holidays" as you read your mind not to worry about a certain amount of time.

See the humor in life and our experience. Take life less seriously and learn to laugh at yourself. Serve and be good to others. Treat everyone with kindness. Talk to others. Listen truly to others. Support them without getting into it. Be careful with your words. Speak better, children and wizards. Observe others and free their will. Put your trust in others and trust again.

Work as part of the whole. See others as partners in your efforts. Practice generosity and give without expecting anything instead. Live in the present. Do not play negative events or concerns about the future. Accept and celebrate strangeness. Be grateful for your life, for every moment every day.

Check yourself at the moment. Choose a healthy lifestyle. Keep your daily life. Wake up at the same time every morning, preferably early. Get enough sleep. Do not overeat and try to exercise healthy self-control. Practice daily to sweat.

Laugh more. Laughter is the best medicine. Practice deep breathing and yoga. The body and the mind are connected. Watch your spirit. Keep learning new things. Get creative.

Be infected. Live to a minimum and simply. Often extravagant generates more stress, no more pleasure. De-clutter your home to your de-cluttered mind. Very good in your own home. Make it your sanctuary by keeping it clean, organized and uplifting. Go without certain things you think you need.


Educational Education

Students encourage student interest, desire, forcibly and need to participate in and succeed in the learning process. It is generally recognized that student encouragement plays a key role in academic education.

Highly motivated students actively participate in the learning process, but less motivated students. Strong students have a positive effect on learning. They take advantage of opportunities and demonstrate a lot of work and concentration in the implementation of the learning process. They also show positive emotions such as excitement, enthusiasm, interest and optimism in learning.

On the other hand, those who were encouraged to be less interested in participating in the study process. Most of them were physically present in the classroom but were mentally lacking. They often took an active part in the program. Such students were more likely to quit learning. Less motivated students should be suggested to develop a favorable attitude towards the learning process.

Teacher or teacher has an important role in guiding less motivated students. A technique called rehabilitation rehabilitation, which includes model making, companionship and exercise exercises, is used to build unlawful students. Its aim is to help students focus on the study program without fear of failing.

There are two types of student organization, such as extrinsic motivation and own motivation. Extrinsic motivation is defined as an incentive to engage in activities to gain a prize or to avoid penalties from outside parties. Of course, students encourage themselves to get a good grade or teacher's approval. Extrinsic motivation is again divided into two such as social incentives and content motivation. Social interests include the approval of teachers, parents and friends. Good grades, future education or occupational safety come under the topics.

Intrinsic motivation refers to participating in activities for their own sake, for the enjoyment and pleasure that it provides. To be more accurate, a student makes a self-motivated action for study that he allows. Compared with extrinsic motivation, internal motivation is desirable as there is an incentive to participate in the study process to enjoy learning without bearing in mind its consequences.
