Be Happier

Be Happier

Happiness is a choice. It’s about how you choose to view your life and the things that happen to you.

When it comes to positive emotions like happiness and love, there’s often an assumption that they should just happen to us. But it’s up to you to make choices to trigger feelings of happiness, joy and love.

Every emotion that you feel, whether it’s positive or negative, has a trigger. Most people intuitively know and accept the triggers for negative emotions – you feel sad when your best friend moves away or you might feel fear about having to speak in public.

So to be happier you need to activate the triggers that make you feel love, joy and happiness. I’ve curated a selection of blog posts with tips to inspire you to bring more happiness into your life.
