How to Find Happiness in Uncertain Times: 5 Thought-Provoking Mindfulness Tips That May Make a Difference by Karena Kilcoyne
During turbulent times it is often a challenge to see the light at the end of the tunnel. To offer a positive outlook into finding contentment when the dark days feel never-ending, here are five thought-provoking tips that could make a difference:
- Identify your silver lining. Is there a positive in all of the negativity swirling around us? Challenge yourself to find it and acknowledge it. Start by naming three things you’re grateful for every day.
- Hit the reset button. Change your routine for your everyday tasks – even if you thrive on routines. Create rituals of happiness.
- Take a time-out. Give yourself a moment and some space to feel the emotion. Maybe that means locking yourself in a room in your home. Wherever you can find a few minutes of peace and quiet to let the emotions flow. Go there.
- Good deeds feel good. Do something for someone else. There’s a lot of that going around right now, isn’t there? It doesn’t just have to be for the heroes on the front-line. Get in touch with a neighbor, relative, friend or all three – and share something positive. We all need a little extra love these days.
- Try laughter yoga. Yes, it’s a thing! The physical benefits of laughter are medically proven. So, fake it if you have to. Start giggling and before you know it, you’ll be laughing for real.
