There are some people who breeze through life easily and nothing seems to bother them. Through the toughest times, they remain strong and unfazed, stopping to enjoy the simple things of life and look at everything in a positive light.
Folks like this may not have much to be happy about, but the simplicity and easiness they use to look at things, make them happy. It’s all about perspective, a conscious effort, and self-awareness.
These 10 reasons are why some people are happier than others.
1. They Control Their Expectations
They’re not crushed when they don’t get what they want or misled into expecting to get the most out of every situation. They approach every situation pragmatically, always hoping for the best but being prepared for the worst.
2. They Don’t Set Unrealistic Standards
People like this don’t live their lives in a constant pursuit towards impossible visions of perfection, only to always find themselves falling short of what they want.
They set standards of what they want to what they can achieve.
3. They Attach Importance To The Little Things
Happiness rests with feeling fulfilled, those who fail to stop and appreciate what they have every now and again will never experience true fulfillment.
4. Their Happiness Doesn’t Dwell On Material Things
There are arguing viewpoints on whether or not money can really buy happiness; if it can, then we know from experience that we can never be satisfied because there will always be something newer or better that we want. Who has ever had enough money?
5. They Don’t Dwell On Things For Long
They don’t sweat the small things or waste time worrying about things that don’t really matter at the end of the day. They don’t let negative thoughts latch onto them and drain them or distract them. Life’s too short to worry.
6. They Put Themselves First
They’re independent, care for themselves and understand that they must put their needs first in order to accommodate the needs of others because they understand that you can never please people.
They indulge, aim to get what they want, make time for themselves and are extremely self-reliant.
7. They Appreciate The Little Things Of Life
They stop to smell the roses. They’re accustomed to finding serenity when it’s available, to welcome entertainment or a stimulating discussion with a stranger when it crosses their path. They don’t overlook the small things in life that can be just as important.
8. They Adapt
They’re not afraid of change and they work to make the most out of new circumstances, good or bad. They thrive under pressure, are not overwhelmed easily and always embrace a change of pace.
9. They Are Always Willing To Try New Things
They try new things, experience new flavors and never shy away from something they have yet to experience. They never order twice from the same menu.
10. They Advance At Their Own Pace
They don’t unnecessarily rush through life. They work on their own schedule to the extent that they can and maneuver through life at their own relaxing pace.
