How to be Happy – 7,4 bln ways

“How to be happy” – the search engine returns 7,4 billion results in 0.43 seconds (in English language). With such a huge amount of knowledge available in the blink of an eye, everyone should be happy. Right? And yet, many of us are still looking for a solution.  
Let’s now look at the first five search results after entering “how to be happy” in Google: From wikihow.com What I really like about this article is that it mentions the core topics, which are the key to find happiness. To know yourself, have a vision, have compassion for yourself. It’s easier said then done! In Twirling Hair Blog, I will explore these topics much more and give practical method on how to do it. The rest of this article lists the known clichés: behealthy, connect with people, etc. 2. From healthline.com  Everything you already know: smile, eat well, smile, breathe, etc. Doesn’t give the real answer. Twirling my hair I am wondering now, how to introduce habits. It is something that we do continuously, that is in line with our nature. If in general I do not like salads, I suspect that making myself to introduce a habit like this, will not finish well. I will only dislike it more. I know a saying “fake it till you make it”. I think it works in a short term – for example to get a promotion at work. But for sure, nothing will make me to be a fan of salads. 3. From nytimes.com There is one thing I really like in this article: a part called “Rewrite your story“. It is about having long term vision about yourself and your life. Again, easier said then done! The author suggest actual writing and I fully agree with it. The  rest of the article – again: be optimistic, exercise, breath. 4. From sparringmind.com Habits again. Will not work. Be proactive, have friends, be busy, less egocentric… Etc. 5. From jamesclear.com Clichés again – be grateful, rest, call a friend, breathe. Somehow everybody knows that already, and still we have many unhappy people.

So, what to do? How to be Happy?

 
I’ve criticized a little, and now I have to face the challenge and do the most difficult. It is easy to judge others, but to propose something constructive is already a challenge.
Twirling my hair, I think that there is a method through which you will get to know yourself and find out what will bring you happiness – with an accent on “You“. The point is to check whether the goal you are aiming for is yours, and not imposed by other people who have stereotypical expectations towards you.
The method is needed, because you have to take matters into your own hands without waiting until one day you will be stoked by a lightening and your individual vision of happiness appears. It is worth looking for this vision and then, step by step, reach the goal. First step is have a long term vision, and here is how to do it.
It is also worth considering a few stereotypes – for example, to say that today everyone has unlimited possibilities. Not exactly. Of course, along the way, you need to take care of your health, eat healthy, breathe, exercise, etc. If you neglect yourself, there is a risk that you will enjoy happiness shorter than intended.  However, I will not write about healthy food or sports.

Twirling hair I write about happiness differently.

About a specific way how to improve your life with understanding yourself, other people and your environment. I am writing about obvious matters, for example “be an optimist”, but I am adding a few sentences about what to do when your mind rebels and despite persuasions continues to suggest negative scenarios. You will have to deal with your own nature and work out a compromise. Again, as I said, it is easier said then done! We start by looking for a long-term vision – read about it here
