How to remain happy

Lots of people start to blame their bad luck or the unfairness of life when they feel bad, and while external events can sometimes be the cause of bad feelings still there are many mistakes that people unintentionally do that results in making them feel bad.

Sometimes you are the one who bring yourself the bad moods and the one who results in mood swings. Want to know how? Read this article.

Emotional changes

Our emotions can change in less than a second, I am sure you have noticed your mood swing before from complete happiness to sadness in no time. Our moods usually don’t change except when a trigger activates other emotions, if you learned to avoid these triggers you will be able to increase the length of your happy times. Those triggers are:

  • Music can make you feel bad: Just as music can make you feel good and just as it can be used in therapy, it can also result in severe mood swings in few seconds. A certain phrase in a song can trigger a bad mood if it was associated with any bad event in your mind. If you find yourself feeling good then make sure you pay extra attention to the type of music you are listening to. Don’t listen to a random play list but instead be highly selective in choosing the tracks you listen to in order not to swing your mood.
  • Attracting the bad moods: Suppose that you gained few extra pounds in the past few weeks, any comment about your weight from a friend will most probably result in making you feel bad. Why then wear the clothes that make you appear bigger? Each one of us can manipulate how he looks using the clothes he wears. Only wear the clothes that makes you appear fit until you lose these extra pounds else you will attract critical comments that will make you feel bad.
  • Avoid negative topics and negative people: If you aren’t going to vote on the stimulus package or if the US president isn’t going to take your opinion about fixing the economy then why talk about recessions, slowdowns, unemployment …etc? If you’ve realized that a friend of yours always talks about these topics avoid him/her in order not to catch a bad mood. Of course you should talk about these topics when it’s necessary but what is the use of talking about a recession on Saturday nights??
  • Avoid the news : Want to stay informed? Check the news once a day for few minutes then don’t ever check again it until the next day. In 99% of the times the media will be broadcasting bad news. Why take the risk of feeling bad more than once everyday?

Planning for the future to avoid sadness

I am pretty sure you know that unsolved problems can lead to unhappiness. The problem with such problems is that they can appear all of sudden and so result in changing our moods instantly.

Now the good news is that you can actually do some effort to plan in advance for the changes that will happen in your life so that they don't result in emotional problems.

For example so many people feel bad when they become 25 years old as a result of trying to measure their progress in life against their age.

By planning in advance for such a moment and for the similar moments you can be one step ahead of sadness and bad emotions and so remain happy no matter what happens in your life.

Retain your good mood

Once you find yourself feeling good start paying extra attention to your actions and thoughts in order to prevent this good mood from disappearing or turning into a bad mood.

You will consciously need to avoid many sources of negative emotions and negativity in order to remain happy. For example many people see Facebook as a negative place. In case you are feeling good you might want to avoid Facebook or any other negative thing that could change your mood.

Laziness can lead to unhappiness

We humans are lazy by nature. We hate to do lots of effort and we tend to delay important tasks unless some kind of pressure is applied on us.

The problem with laziness is that it results in the accumulation of tasks. This can lead to stress on the short term and sadness on the longer term.

By dealing with life changes as soon as they happen you will give yourself a better chance of remaining happy.
