This article has opened my eyes and made me realized that some of these habits are actually my habits. There are 22 habits according to Info Barrel but I’m sharing the 10 most habits that struck me.
Happiness is something that happens through a series of experiences, habits and realizations over the course of your life. This isn’t a guide to try and fix people who are clinically depressed, but a series of things I have learned over my life that have shaped the way I look at life and the world. It is my experience that the more positive habits you have in your life, the more emotional happiness you will experience. Instead of telling you things you should do to increase your emotional satisfaction, I’ve created a list of bad habits you should try to correct. Not only will they make you happier, they will also make you a better person.
1. Chronic Complaining
The one thing that happy, successful people don’t do a lot of is complaining. While it is psychologically beneficial to vent when you are under stress, there is a difference between small venting sessions and being a chronic complainer. The chronic complainer tends to always have something wrong in their life, their issues are more important than everybody elses, and when you have something to vent about yourself, they aren’t very interested in listening.
Ok, guilty! I used to complain EVERYDAY of all the bad things that I notice in my life. Yes, I promise to be more grateful from now on.
