Day 5 detox your mind

Many of us have unhelpful negative programmes running through our mind that limit our happiness and success. These can be along the lines of “I’m not good enough”, “I’m not thin/ pretty enough”, ”I haven’t got time”, “I don’t have enough money to do what I want and so on. There are plenty of routes you can find to give yourself reasons not to be happy. In truth, many of obstacles you put in your own way can be shifted.

You need to brush up on your mind programming and banish the negative programmes that are holding you back from the happiness you want.

Try this exercise

One quick and easy way to do a mind detox is to change the story you’re telling yourself and other people.

Write down here the negative and limiting stories that you prone to tell yourself (eg your weight, problem relationships, job, no time, family commitments, a run of bad luck)

……………………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………

Now decide that you are going to drop this story with immediate effect and tell a new better story.

Write down a new and positive story to start telling

My new story will be

……………………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………

Begin the change today – turn the story you tell into a better one.

Notice when you tell a new and better story, you feel different. When you feel different, the shift in your emotions will improve and you’ll get a better outcome.

To feel happier, swap smiles and laughs – not gossip and bad stories

Day 6 clean sweep

Today, we’re going to concentrate on cleaning up your environment. Are there people around you who constantly bring you down? You all know those people who can really make you feel bad. They might want to trade gossip, criticize and only talk about things that are going wrong. Negative friends and family can bring you down faster than anything.

Try this exercise

Pay attention to the effect that other people have on you. If there are individuals who are gossiping, making you feel bad or generally bringing you down, notice this tendency and take some active steps to make some changes. Either move away from these energy zappers or make a positive decision not to be affected by others’ emotions and attitudes. If the people who bring you down are work colleagues, find a way to politely swerve from the negative conversations as much as possible and not get involved.

Notice how other people make you feel – and head towards the ones who make you feel good.

Top tip for happiness: Change your inner voice – make it kinder, softer and more positive. This will change your world and instantly improve your happiness.

Day 7 gratitude and appreciation

Happiness research shows that people who are happiest are those who demonstrate a high level of gratitude and appreciation for what they already have. Those who live in poorer communities often score higher on the happiness research index than those in the western world, despite the West’s wealth and resources.

To develop deeper levels of happiness, it’s important to begin by boosting your appreciation of what you do have – this might be friends, health. Community, food, sunshine, a chance to walk in nature – it doesn’t matter what it is. When you feel true gratitude in life and deep appreciation, your real feelings of happiness soar.
