How to Find Happiness – 5 Simple Techniques



It would seem fair and accurate to say that a common ‘quest’ shared by many would be how to find happiness in our daily lives. Authentic happiness may be defined by different people in different ways but ultimately it comes down to an inner peace we feel. It therefore stands to reason that the key to happiness is finding that inner peace which brings us to our discussion here today. What is it we can do to or how is it we can act that will help bring happiness, or more of it, into our lives?Here are 5 simple techniques you can immediately use with little effort that will help put ‘pep in your step’ and bring happiness into your life.Be GratefulIt is amazing how showing a little gratitude can make your insides feel so warm and fuzzy. Besides the fact that it feels nice to be nice these actions bring out the best in others also. The result is they respond to you in the same fashion and in the end this can bring happiness to everybody involved.Also by giving thanks it consciously makes you aware that others are acting kindly towards you so you therefore appreciate it more.Be OptimisticIf you stop and consider how much influence each one of us has over our own destiny there is no reason not to have hope. Possessing hope or optimism gives you more energy and a certain sense of excitement about the way things ‘can’ be. This helps to ‘lighten’ your mood and can bring happiness to those around you.Perform Random Acts of KindnessMuch like giving thanks being helpful to others without expectations of reward or reciprocation makes you feel good about yourself. The resulting reactions you get from the people who you helped only serve to make you feel even better.Emphasize Your StrengthsSo you got some weaknesses, big deal, everybody does too. Learn to put more emphasis on the strengths you posses whether it is a sense of humor being a good listener or something else. Using your strengths gives you more confidence and likely gets a better reaction from others both of which tend to make you feel better about yourself.Count Your BlessingsLook around you and see others that have various challenges such as physical, financial or emotional in nature and appreciate what you have and who you are. No matter what the situation may be there is ALWAYS somebody who has it tougher than you! Life is only as bad as you ‘perceive’ it to be.With lifestyles that seem to be consumed by work and stress it is no wonder that many question how to find happiness in their own lives. Not the happiness you may experience when leaving work for the day or perhaps a long weekend but true authentic happiness that stress can NOT erase. These 5 techniques reviewed here today can quickly establish that sense of ‘well being’ to help make you feel a more ‘positive connection’ with your own life. Stimulating this sense of inner peace is the key to happiness and comes with giving thanks for what it is we ALREADY have.

Fact – The popularity of audio books is exploding. It has been estimated that in 2008 sales in the UK alone could reach £125 million; annual growth has been running at 20%+ across Europe and the UK, and is reckoned to be even quicker in the US where technology trends still tend to be 1-2 years ahead in in terms of uptake (come on UK & Europe!)

But how can we explain this explosive growth of audio book editions of thousands of previously mainly paper only books? What is it that makes them more than just a convenient way to “read” a book? Why are they so much more popular than cassette and CDs audio books which were around for years but never really went beyond best sellers in terms of book availability?

1) TIME – You save time, because you can listen to an audio book anywhere and everywhere, even while doing other things at the same time, for example when driving to and from work, walking the dog, cycling, jogging, working around the house or at the computer, gardening, working out, and so on…… The list is endless.

You Kill dead time! A recent survey indicated that in the USA the average person is driving an average of 73 minutes daily; this adds up to over 440 hours per year, or 11 full-time working weeks.

Just imagine how many books you could read in that time, simply by having an MP3 player and a supply of audio books! Imagine as well that you use this time, at least in part, to listen to educational audio books? Maybe start to learn a language or improve work related skills. Wow – Think of the hundreds of hours that can now be turned to potentially very profitable or emotionally fulfilling use.

2) LOVE READING BUT…We all know the saying that time is the great enemy and it’s true! Many of us love reading but find we don’t have enough time to read as much as we’d like.

If you love reading but don’t have enough time, audio books can give you the opportunity to read many more books than you would otherwise have time for. We’ve covered some of the occasions above; audio books are just a great way to fill those” dead” or tedious mindless chore periods we all have in our day to day lives.

Plus, unlike Cassettes and CD’s, audio books on Mp3’s are so much smaller. There are so many more situations they can be used where CDs used to jump about, were too big or just couldn’t deal with the environment e.g., you can even get waterproof Mp3 players now or players built into Sunglasses!

3) People who find it hard to read Audio books are ideal for older people who may find reading tedious or tiring; equally for sick people, those recovering from sickness or disabled, and can be a wonderful gift for someone in a nursing institution. This is a gift they can remember and enjoy time after time.

Audiobooks can be a Godsend for partially sighted or blind people. Everyone should have the chance to experience and enjoy books and in many cases, this is the only way for such people to do so.

5) Among the most important skills a child can ever acquire is undoubtedly the ability to read, and audio books can be easily used to stimulate literacy in children; for example they can listen while following the story in the paper book, or even simply listen just to gain and improve vocabulary and communication skills. If you want to “program in” your child the love of reading, audio books can be an brilliant aid.

These are just a few of the many benefits Psychology Articles, but even these few provide many good reasons for entering the exciting world of spoken books.
