What do you need to be more excited about your life?

How would you design a happy moment?

 

Perhaps you remember this episode of the Mary Tyler Moore show:

Mary said (glumly, in distress), “I need a change. Every day, I get up in the morning, I go to work, I do my work, I come home, I eat dinner, and I go to sleep.”

And Ted (remember Ted?) replied, with glee. ”What you need to do is, GET UP in the morning, GO to work, DO your work, GO home, EAT your dinner, and GO to sleep.”

Boom! Attitude! Who expected that from Ted?

 

Attitude is Everything

To begin with, the one constant thing in our life is change. By the same token, we are surrounded by change, and it has a dramatic impact on our lives. Correspondingly, we can’t avoid it because it finds us, challenge us, and forces us to reconsider how we live.

4 Tips to Building a Positive Attitude

All things considered, sometimes changing our circumstances isn’t possible. Or it’s not possible quickly enough. At the same time, we may want a less drastic change. In any event, we want to be happier.

First of all, it’s possible to stop the cycle of wishing things were different. With this in mind, take control of your thoughts and reactions to events and people.

  1. Breathe: First, take a deep breath. As a matter of fact, take a few. For one thing, this important step allows us to calm down and do the rest of the things on this list.
  2. Laugh: Laughter gives us an immediate positive mood boost. For this reason, it is linked to everything from improved physical health to a better social life. All in all, whether you crack a joke or a friend says something funny, humor is a key to our attitude. 
  3. Practice: By and large, any skill develops with practice. For this reason, it’s part of the process to mess up. As a result, it takes time become good at attitude adjustment. Accordingly, repeat #1 (breathe) and #2 (laugh) as part of practicing.
  4. Practice Mindfuness: Mindfulness is the quality of attention, immediacy, and non-distraction during an event. Ordinarily, we don’t notice the quality of our attention. In short, it’s in this moment of awareness that we can connect to an experience without grasping it or pushing it away. (Mindfulness)
