Habits That Block Your Happiness Part 1

If you want to be happier, it’s all about taking control of what you do each day. Choose to ditch these following joy sucking and soul searing habits. Some of them may surprise you.

  • Lack of Self love – Hating on yourself is like drinking poison. It slowly kills your mind, body and soul.
  • Complaining – When it comes to complaining, always remember, where your attention goes, energy flows. And where energy flows, something grows.
  • Blaming – Blaming gives your power away, by making that which exists outside of yourself responsible for your happiness.
  • Needing to Look Good – Do not change yourself for anyone or anything. Do not be concerned about what other think of you, their thoughts and opinions will never validate or define you.
  • Poor Physical Habits – Ignoring what is good for your body will result in your body dying more quickly than necessary. Harsh but true!
  • Being a Slave to Your Fears – Living within your comfort zone where you do not meet your fears is not living. It is staying safe.

Come back tomorrow to learn more happiness killing habits.

    Surprise is taking control of what you do each day only to realise you can’t change fate

      You can’t change your fate, but your free will can postpone it. It’s how fate works. You are control of your life; it is not in control of you. Fate is what will come to you in life, and free will is what you choose to do with it

    This was really helpful. But I also believe that sometimes it’s good to not be in control. To just let go of stuff and go with the flow. Controlling everything will just leave no space foe life to suprise us .

      Yes. Realize that you can’t control everything. I think we all know this at some level, but the way we think and act and feel many times contradicts this basic truth.

      “To love oneself,” wrote Oscar Wilde, “is the beginning of a life-long romance.” As is the tale of every love story, times will bring both sun and storm, testing our deepest intentions on how we relate to ourselves. Love comes easy on good days, when our self-esteem stands tall on our accomplishments. It’s when we fall that our self-directed goodwill often deserts us. Suddenly, we remember all our faults. Our internal monologue muds with harsh judgments. We blame and shame ourselves for our pain. We abandon ourselves and look to whoever (and whatever) would give us comfort. One way to winning back our own hearts and reclaiming our well-being is through self-compassion

      Thank you Kellie. I am glad you liked the post. In short, to stop blaming and complaining we become aware when we are doing it, stop justifying it, understand where these negative thoughts and behaviors come.

  7. Thanks for sharing. Self love and compassion really is a powerful thing, it makes such a difference to our wellbeing doesn’t it.

    1. GS says:

      Put simply, compassion is a concern for the welfare and well-being of others. Compassion does not necessarily require a focused love to exist but is often thought of as a form of love in and of itself: a love for humankind as a whole.

    “Depending on what they are, Our Habits  will either make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.”

      A habit is like a rope made, often unconsciously, strand by strand, on a daily basis. Once formed, our habits make us effective or ineffective, successful or unsuccessful. It is not as easy to break a habit as is to make it.

    Garima,

    Now post-COVID life requires some healing up. These are perfect points to work on. Wouldn’t you agree that there all have things inside and outside ourselves to work on?

    Thanks,

    Gary

      There will never come a time when we are complete and finished human beings because the state of being complete and finished is the antithesis of what being human is all about. Our lives are one massive, gigantic, and sometimes overwhelming work in progress.

      Because the lives we are living are not finite. They are not written in stone. They are not stagnant. They are not about breaking through a certain threshold.
