Life is filled with lots of situations we often can’t control, but we can make the best of it and stay as happy as we possibly can. Do you wish to be happier? Below are seven things you need to do more.

1. Be Content

Not being content with what you have often make people very unhappy with themselves. You sure can strive to greater achievements but you shouldn’t at the detriment of your own self. Realise that not everyone would be rich and famous. Don’t compare yourself with others, you’re unique. Be happy with what you have presently and if more comes your way so be it.

2. Stop seeking approval from others

You don’t need anyone telling you you’re awesome before you believe you are. Stop letting people’s opinion of you dictate your life and how you live it. Remember they are just opinions and not necessarily the truth. Your happiness is in your own hands.

3. Let go of the past

Make peace with your past and stop holding on to it. Anger and hate only controls and holds you back. Forgive and move on.

4. Stop the negative self talk

The opinion you have of yourself plays a vital role in what comes out of you. If you believe you are beautiful, smart, and basically all that, others would see you the same way.

5. Be open to change

Nothing is ever perfect. Not your life, relationship or situations. Understand that change is inevitable and there are things that are out of your control. All you can do is accept it and deal with it.

6. Accept you can’t always be right

Don’t spend your life trying to proof others wrong all the time. You possibly can’t always be right.

7. Manage your expectations

Things would not always turn out the way we think it would in our heads. You can’t control how other people think or what happens in certain situations. So walk through life with an open mind and be ready to manage whatever situation you happen to stumble in.
