The secret to be happier
If we try to analize our daily thoughts we will realize that, in general, we use to think too much about what goes wrong and not enough about what goes right in our life. We use to focus our mind in our worries, concerns, situations and obsessions,… and that is not good for ourselves.
If we think more about what has gone well and we are grateful for that, then we will be happier and healthier and more good things will come to our life. And all this is about the power of gratitud.
From my point of view, this is connected with yoga in some way. According to the ancient yoga text: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the 8 limbs of yoga described by him, Santosha is the second of the Niyamas (self-observances) of Patanjali’s 8 limbs of yoga. The meanning of Santosha is contentment, gratitude. It is about finding acceptance, appreciation and happiness with what we have and with what we don’t have, with what we are, and with people who are around us, enjoying every moment of our life, enjoying everything we do and everything we have.
“What you appreciate, appreciates”
When you appreciate something, then more of that flows in to your life.
If you want to increase nice and beautiful things happenning in your life writte a gratitude diary. Every night take 5 minutes before you go to sleep and writte down at least 5 things that happenned during the day and you are grateful for.
If we do that we will feel happier and our happiness will last because experiencing gratitud is like sending love to the universe. When we live in gratitud we are opening our heart, and that love we send out, will come back to us many times over, creatting abundance, attracting people, ideas and events that will enrich our life,
