Although this year has been very challenging, I choose to return to happiness. I use many tools to aid me in my journey.
I repeat affirmations to increase my happiness. Affirming my great qualities gives my confidence and self-esteem a much-needed boost.
Feeling thankful also returns me to happiness. Each day, I list ten things that I am grateful for. I am grateful for my gratitude journal.
One way to get me back to happiness that always works for me is to play. I find new ways to play. I play board games with my family. I chase the dog around the yard. I watch funny movies. I read jokes.
I think of memories of my youth that make me happy. I talk with my friends who have a great sense of humor. I learn to cultivate my sense of humor.
I love to watch funny animal antics on TV or the internet. I watch the squirrels chase each other in the yard.
I ask my friends and business associates what they do to increase their happiness. I associate with happy people and I adopt an attitude of happiness.
I remember the adage of the glass half full. I choose to see the world through rose colored glasses. I decorate my home with things that make me happy. I find activities that bring me joy.
Today, regardless of where I am or where I go, I can find happiness, because it is within.
