Why you Should Always Choose What Makes You Happy


Listen to “Why you Should Always Choose What Makes You Happy”.

In a world with so much upheaval, uncertainty, struggle, and injustice, how can we be truly happy? For over 6,000 years of humanity, our greatest minds haven’t been able to pinpoint the precise recipe for happiness. However, there are signposts that can lead us in the right direction.

Life is Short – Choose Happiness 

Each morning you wake up and face a decision. Many things in life make you happy, and many things don’t. If you focus on what makes you happy and go out and do it, then your quality of life can improve dramatically.  

It is possible to see the positive side of any situation, and there are practices and habits we can develop to help find happiness. 

Focus on what matters

If you constantly focus on doing things, then you may be distracted from what’s important. Distractions keep us from finding the mental space to sit with good and bad feelings, including boredom and sadness. 

Cultivating focus is about learning how to step away from the constant. While doing things for others may be good, you have to look after your happiness first and foremost before trying to make other people happy along the way. Living for yourself is not selfish; it is just believing in yourself and that when you are happy, everyone around you will be happy too. It’s about creating the space to be, to think clearly, and to determine what truly matters to us so that we can include more of those things in our lives. Do what makes you happy, not others.


Find time alone in solitude. As our world gets gradually faster and noisier, the ability to withdraw becomes even more essential. 

Studies confirm the importance and life-giving benefits of meditation. So take time to make time and use meditation to search inward, connect spiritually, and improve your happiness today. Think of your thoughts like the weather, as if they were passing clouds. Weather doesn’t have meaning: sometimes you get storm clouds and sometimes clear skies.

Actively (and regularly) count your blessings.

According to one study, couples who expressed gratitude in their interactions with each other experienced increased relationship connection and satisfaction the next day — both for the person expressing thankfulness and the person receiving it.

Don’t Compare Yourself to Others Too Much

If you compare yourself to other people too much, especially to those who have gone ahead of you, then you’re bound to be disappointed in yourself or even get depressed. 

Focus on yourself. Be happy about the improvements and developments you have made, no matter how incremental they may seem. You’ll get there eventually.

If anybody is worthy of happiness, it’s you! Whatever has happened in your past is unchangeable and can only be used as a lesson now.  

Regardless of your circumstances, choosing to be happy will create a stronger sense of worth within yourself.  

Always remember this: You are worthy of being happy in your life. Therefore, treat yourself with the kindness and compassion you deserve and choose happiness for yourself.
