Tiny Changes to Make for a Happier Life


Happiness is not a simple matter; as we get older we inevitably face obstacles and setbacks. Despite these disappointments, it is important to remember that happiness isn't a mood, it's a state of mind. Confidence Coach Laure Redmond joined us to share how these small steps lead to big transformations:

  1. Give up one daily decision that YOU don't have to make - too many daily choices create mental fatigue.
  2. Reject the diet mentality - create a healthy relationship with food and learn to distinguish the difference between emotional feelings and physical hunger.
  3. Understand the root of your anxiety - it's not just oxygen pumping to your brain.
  4. Find a work buddy. If you're self-employed, create a monthly social with others who are self-employed and if you work in an office, having a work buddy increases motivation and productivity.
  5. Words matter - stop avoiding the ugly stuff or making it sound pretty when it's not - say it, but say it without screaming.
  6. Concentrate on consciousness instead of pleasure.
  7. Avoid the temptations of negativity such as gossip, dwelling on bad news, venting and blaming.
  8. Let go of the many assumptions you've been taught that should make you happy - happiness is knowing who you really are - learn how to Be You and enjoy this lifelong project.
