Happiness has a ripple effect. If you’re feeling happy and interact with others throughout your day, you’re sending your positive energy to those people whether you know it or not. Someone’s day can be completely turned around by your smile, and knowing that should hopefully help you to feel even better about taking a moment to focus on you.
Find Time For You Every Morning
This ripple effect has to start from within you. Finding something that makes you genuinely pleased kicks off that process and begins to lift your spirit. That’s why it’s important to find something every morning that brings you joy and puts you into the right mood.
If you’re uncertain how to joyfully start your morning, try these ideas:
- Practice yoga, either in a studio or at home.
- Take a moment to read from a favorite book.
- Set your intentions for the day by journaling.
- Meditate in a comfortable space.
- Listen to one of your favorite uplifting albums.
Rippling and Echoing
Not only do your feelings of happiness ripple and affect others, but you’ll also notice yourself finding the joy in little moments and interactions as well. Other people’s joy starts to resonate more with you, and you find yourself registering emotions in a grander way. Taking the time, not only in the morning but throughout the day, to work on your own happiness simply creates more happiness, in both others and yourself.
Melt Your Stress Away
Though this does make it sound as if bringing happiness to yourself is the easiest thing in the world, it can absolutely be a difficult practice. Once you become more familiar with what brings you happiness and how your own happiness can spread and ripple throughout your interactions, you’ll start to control your emotions more, leading to a less stressful life.
