The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself and loving yourself is the key to happiness. We can all agree on that, right? Here are a few tips for every girl to remain happy and smiling - always! So go on, make yourself happy now!
1. Eliminate the negativity
One needs to get rid of all the negativity from within. Our thought process plays an important role as we absorb energy from our ideas and thoughts. If you think negative, you would automatically attract negative ideas and thoughts. Thinking positively would make your mind and body feel much better!
2. Forgive others and yourself
As much as it is important for one to forgive others, it is also important to forgive oneself. Nobody is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. Accept these mistakes as a part and parcel of life and if the people who you had hurt have forgiven you, it is time for you to forgive yourself too!
3. Have a play time
No matter how old you are, there is always a little kid who lives inside you and it is essential for this kid to come out at times. Simple things like singing in the shower or dancing like a maniac in front of the mirror can bring joy into your life.
4. Write a letter to yourself
When you love a person, you want to write them a letter and let them know how much you love them and how much they mean to you. Similarly, why wait for someone to write one for you? If you love yourself, write yourself a letter reminding yourself what an awesome person you are!
5. Morning and evening ritual
Our mornings usually involve us running for work and not having any time for ourselves. Start your day a little early and create a morning ritual for yourself. You could read the newspaper, have your cup of tea at ease, take a long hot shower or maybe even do some yoga. Similarly, make an evening routine for yourself too - read a new book, watch your favourite show or listen to your favourite music. These practices will make you start and end your day right!
6. Find your asset
Everyone has a particular activity that they are good at. It could be either singing, dancing, painting, writing or something completely off-beat. Finding a hobby or an activity that you are good at will immediately make you feel more confident about yourself and make you feel happy.
7. Dressing up well
Dressing up well, instantly makes a person feel happy about oneself. Never wait for a reason to dress up, girls! Wear your favourite red dress when you're feeling a bit low to give your mood an instant kick!
8. Have your personal commitments and goals
Make a list of your goals and personal commitments and make sure you work on achieving them. Once you do achieve them, you are reminding yourself that you are important enough for yourself to keep up your personal commitments and dreams.
9. Accept compliments
Never brush off compliments or deny them. You don't always need to be modest. Accept them with a smile and thank people! After accepting someone’s praise, you will instantly feel happy and it will bring a big smile on your face.
10. Never compare
It is natural for us humans to constantly compare ourselves with others. This is one habit every woman needs to break as it is important for you to understand that every individual is unique and has their own merits. Always remember that you are you and there can be nobody else like you in this world! And if you really need to compare, compare yourself to an earlier version of you - you'll see how you much progress you've made!
Be your own cheerleader and always aim to encourage and empower yourself. Get rid of all the judgemental thoughts you have about yourself and replace them with positive thoughts. Give yourself the credit of being a beautiful person and no goal will seem impossible!
