How To Stay Happy In Overwhelming And Hard Times
Divert your thoughts
It is easy to fall into a state of constant thinking and dealing with a topic that disturbs us, whether it is a pandemic, a state of emergency, or what will happen next. Or something else. But, preventing thoughts from constantly returning to that topic, that is, preventing rumors about stressful events by drawing attention to something else, can significantly lower the pressure and return it to normal values faster.
If you meditate, keep in mind that it does not help everyone
In overwhelming times like these, meditation would help many. But it may not help others at all – just for the previous reason. For some, exercising calm can simply be a trigger for rumination (repetitive thoughts).
Turn the situation around
How we interpret our emotions largely depends on the context. For example, in his book “Happiness”, Darren Brown gives the example of a tennis player who enters a match with the imperative of the thought “I have to win”. If he sets the expectation that victory is everything, and the player starts to lose, it will feel like a failure.
Don’t be obsessive about being positive or happy
This may seem constructive: it may turn out to be a bad idea to chase positive emotions. Actively pursuing happiness can have the opposite effect.
Focus on the little things
It is wise to spend less time trying to be happy and focus on the little things that make us happy. Please answer the following six questions, a task that lasts about ten minutes can help us find more happiness in life.
- What experiences, even everyday ones, make you happy?
- What compliments and feedback did you receive?
- What were those moments of pure happiness?
- What are your achievements, no matter how small?
- What made you feel grateful?
- How did you show kindness?
Balance the time you spend on social media
Social networks are full of bad news, but for many, it is a key way to stay informed, but also connected with friends and loved ones. Keeping your phone out of the bedroom, or limiting the time you spend without technology, can help balance the pros and cons of social media.
