Here are five things you can do to rewire your brain to be happy.

Happiness doesn’t just happen, you have to work for it, but it is fast and easy,

Unless you take steps to be happy, the built in tendency towards negativity most of us have will run things. You have to focus on being happy for it to happen and taking these five steps will really turn things around for you.

1. Think of three things you’re grateful for
2. Write about a positive experience from the past 24 hours
3. Exercise
4. Meditate
5. Perform one random act of kindness.
If you do this every day for just 30 days, it can change the neural pathways in your brain, making happiness second nature.

What you are feeling now is what you were thinking before.

Your current feelings are based on your previous thoughts, be they good or bad.

The enjoyable place in your mind is temporary, or the uncomfortable place in your mind may be standing is temporary. Your now reality is only a temporary, momentary culmination of what you’ve been thinking about. What you think about translates into your reality

What’ll you have bud, the choice is yours?

It will be better than you imagined.

Most people overestimate how bad things will be and underestimate how good things will be.

When you think about things move your estimated outcome up a notch. Odds are you are being too pessimistic about outcomes. You miss opportunities because you do not pursue things that appear too hard. Or you don’t realize how good something can be. Either way your natural pessimism holds you back.

Ready to find out how good something really is?

Some people find fault like there is a reward for it.

Some people will go to extraordinary means to find problems and involve you in them.

We just can’t avoid the fact that some people are just extreme pessimists. But we can avoid getting tangled up with them. Most of the time it is the same people in our lives that bring problems to us. They try to rope you into their mess and pull you down. Avoid these people at all costs, they can only hurt you. And when you sense a new contact is heading in this direction, start to distance yourself right away.

Hide, the pessimists are coming.

Why is it that some people seem to be happy all the time?

They do this on a regular basis.

They smile. Smiling changes the way we react to the world and the way the world reacts to us, making our lives happier. They also nurture relationships. We really do need people and making relationships work pays back big time. And here is the biggie: they live in the moment. They don’t wallow in the past or worry about the future, they take life as it is and deal with it, good or bad.

Can you set yourself up to be happy right now?

You need to believe you can accomplish your goal if you want to accomplish your goal.

You can set anything you want for a goal, but if you don’t really believe in it, you will fail.

The R in SMART goals stands for realistic and this is key to actually achieving the goal. If you don’t really believe in your goal, at some level you will hold back and not accomplish it. Yes, you want to stretch you goals, but if you go too far out you will fail.

Do you believe in the goals you have set for yourself?

Pay attention to your thoughts.

By paying attention, you can catch negative or self-destructive thoughts before they take root.

Negative thoughts have a way of sneaking into our mind and can undercut you self-esteem. If you actually listen to your thoughts you can catch these ideas and stop your mind from accepting them. Once you catch a negative thought, make an effort to replace it with a positive thought aimed at improving your self-esteem.

Pay attention to the next thought you have.

Empty your trash before you try to move ahead.

Carrying the trash from your past stops you from achieving success.

Past failures, disappointments, etc can be a good lesson on what to do in the future, but more often they are things that we hang onto and drag us down. All this trash from the past takes up space in our minds than we need to focus on what lies ahead. And it pulls down your morale as well.

Dump your trash today and focus on the future.

Refuse to shrink.

Never ever be less than who you are in order to please someone else.

Choose to take up a lot of space in your own life. Choose to give yourself permission to meet your own needs. Choose to honor your feelings and emotions. Choose to make self-love and self-care top priorities…

Choose yourself!

Turn inconveniences into lessons.

Inconveniences usually cause us to focus on the negatives in a situation. Imagine how your life would change if these became positive situations.

Too often we see people or things that take up our time as minor headaches and we blame them for slowing us down as we go through the day. Instead we can see these things as gifts in our lives and inconveniences can be reframed as lessons for us to refocus on what is really important to us. You can learn what others are doing wrong and avoid them in your activities.

Now is the chance to look forward to your next inconvenience so you can learn something.
