How to be Happy – Force it at First
I often tell people to wake up every morning and practice being happy for the first hour after they wake. Most that I challenge with that cannot last the first few minutes without their minds thinking about the challenges they are posed with on a daily basis. They are inundated with all the “what ifs” and the self-criticisms. That is the majority of people. It usually takes someone a week to even get used to the idea of being happy for an hour. It takes work. Forcing yourself to be happy is like weightlifting. You go light weight and add a few pounds every week. You have to get your body used to a lighter weight until it is comfortable for to increase.
Like any training regime if you are not patient and you try and go beyond what you are capable you will fail and hurt yourself. In the matter of happiness the failure will result in depression or anxiety over the thought of not allowing yourself to clear your mind. That is where someone like me comes in. I assess all the thoughts that are blocking your breakthrough. Once you get through the 5 hours you are creating a positive habit in the brain or your subconscious. It is very challenging but once it is accomplished it becomes easy. You will have to force yourself to be unhappy.
