How To Be Happy And Feel Less Stressed

Take Time To Enjoy The Simple Things
 

The more our society advances, the more stressful it is. The rat race gets more intense each day. We are miserable people because we fall victim to the rat race. But there is relief by just taking the time to enjoy simple things. And little does everyone know that simple things can help relieve a lot of the stresses we are feeling. However, for most of us, we are so used to living in the rat race mode that we don’t even know where to begin in looking at the simple things.

Enjoy The Sunset

When was the last time you took the time to enjoy a sunset? Just sit in your easy chair on the porch or back yard and watch the sun go down. If you live close to the seashore or in a desert region, sunsets can be very a breathtakingly beautiful sight indeed.

Take A Walk Or Ride Your Bike

Or when was the last time you just went for a walk or rode your bicycle? Want a quick solution to the stress of city traffic? Ride your bike or take a bus to work. Buses are especially nice in that you can sit with your favorite book or even snooze while you are going to work. Plus, you will save money on gasoline which can be so expensive these days. Some cities have nice rail systems that let you commute comfortable to and from work. You will be amazed at how much better you would feel by staying out of traffic.

Play With Your Child

If you have small children, when was the last time you just  came home and said, "Hey, let’s go to the playground!" You will be surprised at how much better you will feel just sitting and watching your children play. We must remember to cherish these moments when the children are small because the time passes by so fast.  It is not hard to find simple things to enjoy and make you feel better. The problem for most of us is that we don't stop.  Doing  this will not only energize you but add more years to your life. "So take time to smell the roses!"

How To Eliminate Envy

                                                                    Eliminate Envy And Stay Happy
    
                                                                                                                             

Even if you don’t believe the Christian Bible, you might want to read some of its stories sometime. You will find a wealth of valuable lessons for staying happy. One thing you will quickly find out is that many of the incidents of strife in the Bible had their roots in what is called envy. Envy is wanting what someone else has and feeling hostile towards that person for having it. If envy is cultivated too long within a person, it can actually manifest itself towards violent acts.

The stories in the Bible concerning envy range from Cain killing his brother Abel because God would not accept his sacrifice, to the brothers of Joseph throwing him into a pit and allowing him to be sold into slavery because they did not like his coat of many colors. These stories start with a seed of envy and end up in violent acts.

If you detect even a bit of envy within yourself, you need to eliminate it because it will only make you into a bitter person. It could be dangerous as well because you may be tempted to take action to try and satisfy your envy against the person you are envious of. You are better off feeling happy for a person who has something you wish you had. And you can rest assured that you will always find someone who has something better than you; so you might as well learn to deal with it.

The best thing to do when you feel you are envious of another is to stop and look at the good things you have. For instance, your friend might have the car you want and all you have is a beat up minivan. However, it could be that your friend is not blessed with children whereas you wouldn’t trade the experiences of hauling yours around in your old minivan for anything.

How To Aviod Pain By Learning From Others

Avoid Being Hurt By Learning From Others

Problems in life are inevitable. As we go through life we are going to run into many difficulties and uncertainties and even tragedies. There is no school for learning how to deal with these life changing events. You can read a book on how to deal with life changing events but books are general and usually do not specifically address your
particular problem.

Learn From Others Who Have Walked The Path

It is not just problems that we have to deal with. Sometimes we enter into a positive situation like a marriage and don’t know what to expect. Other times we are dealing with a task
in our careers that we were never taught in college. All these are examples of where we can benefit greatly by learning from others who have already been down those paths.

Learn From Those Who Have Experienced The Same

Notice that we qualify this with those who have experienced the same challenges. How can a person who has never "been there" give effective help? We can learn from those who have
experienced what we are about to experience for ourselves. If we pay attention to them, we have a better chance of choosing the right path and avoiding a lot of pain due the
mistakes we avoid.

Avoid making The Same Mistakes Like Others

For instance, let’s say there is an elderly person who at one time got overextended on credit but ended up paying all of it off after years of struggling. This would be the perfect person
to talk to when you get your first credit card. This person can tell you how credit card companies fish you in with promises of 0% interest on balance transfers and extremely generous credit lines. They can tell you before you fall into the trap about the miserable nightmare it can end up being. Now how would a person who has never experienced that be able to help you?

Save Yourself From PAin

Learn from the experiences of others. By doing so, you can avoid their mistakes and the pain they felt as a consequence of their actions.

Closet Space -Organizing Your Closet

closet organizer                                           How ToOrganizing Your Closet


Over-crowded closets can cause a number of problems. You may have difficulty finding clothes that you need quickly, and things you have hanging up may become wrinkled due to the close quarters. You can solve these problems quite easily, and you will find that the work you put into organizing and sorting your closets will save you more work over time. Simply rotate the items in your closet with the seasons.

Arrange Clothing By Seasons

You will have some clothes that are appropriate for all seasons, such as some formal wear and simple casual wear that will not be affected by the changes in seasonal weather. You should start by separating these into their own section, which will, for the most part, remain in your closet all year. Take the rest of your clothes out of the closet and sort them according to the seasons for which they are appropriate.

 Store clothing for different seasons in clear bags and plastic boxes

Place items that are not appropriate for the current season into storage until they are needed. Clear plastic boxes or bags are the best way to go for this storage, as you will be able to tell what they hold easily. Store items for each season together, and be careful to store your clothing in a place where the conditions will not adversely affect the fabrics. Some fabrics, for instance, do not handle drastic temperature or humidity changes well.

 Arrange Clothes By Functions

There are a number of ways you can arrange the clothes that remain in your closet, but the best method is probably to arrange them by their function For instance, put casual wear in one section of your closet, the formal wear in another, and so on. This will allow you to find whatever you need inside your closet quickly and easily. Remember to keep extra containers for the things that are still in your closet, when you need to rotate those out, as well as to replace any containers that wear out.

Embracing Help

                                               Don’t Turn Away Help   

Most of us are proud people. We usually have an attitude within ourselves that we have made it to this point of life on our own and will continue to pull our weight to make it. However, we can be assured that at some point in our life, we will hit the bottom. It is not a matter of if but it is a matter of when.

Unless you are independently wealthy, you are going to need someone to help you and you will have to swallow your pride to let that happen. Maybe you have experienced a job loss and it has been a few months and you still have not landed a new job. You send resume after resume with no response. Have you tried calling someone you know who might be able to help you get a job? It has been proven time and time again that you have the best chances of
getting a job when someone already there can attest to your skills and qualifications. So why go through the hassle of looking anywhere else?

For those of us young and just starting our adult lives, getting credit can be very difficult. However, all of us will need credit to buy cars, homes, and other large ticket items. But when we are first starting to apply for credit we will receive many rejection letters. The quickest way to get credit is to have an already-established credit-worthy person co-sign a loan with you. This is where getting help will save you time and hassle. However, if you get someone
to co-sign with you, please make sure you pay the debt as you could destroy that person’s credit if you do not.

Other types of help could come in the form of advice from wise people who have already been through an experience you might be struggling with. You would be surprised that there are others going through what you are and it could save you much grief by just seeking their advice.The bottom line is...learn to accept help when you need to. Don’t shy away from help when it is offered to you. It will be easier to solve your problem when you have someone to help you through.

Managing Your Expectations


Giving Without Expecting Anything in Return
love unconditionalSome of the unhappiest people in the world are people who expect something from others, particularly if these others owe them favors. While we are all taught that if we do things for people it will usually return to us, this is not always the case. You will find that you will typically be a much happier person if -- when you do something for someone or give something to a person -- you expect nothing in return.

It has been said that people who keep their expectations low have little cause to whine. For instance, if a close friend of yours is in a bind and asks to borrow some money, give it as a gift instead of lending it. Realistically, if a person is in a real financial bind, that person probably cannot pay you back anyway. If you lend money to this person and do not get it back, you might find yourself getting very angry and upset. By the same token, if you do not have the money to spare, then tell your friend this too. It is better to be honest in this case. Just tell your friend you do not have money to lend him and try to help your friend come to a solution.

It is easy to do favors for other people whom we are pretty certain will return the same for us. In other words, it is easy to give some nice gift to a rich friend of ours as we are pretty certain that this rich friend will give us a nice gift in return. It is much harder and much nobler to do a favor for someone you know cannot return the same. This is what divides the happy people from the miserable people. Those individuals who genuinely help those in real need
expecting nothing returned are among the happiest on earth whereas the ones who expect something back are quickly disappointed.
