Are you struggling to be happy with what you already have? Are you constantly wanting more? Well, you may know by now that being content with what you already have is a major aspect of being happy. Below are some tips to help you stop focusing on what you don’t have and be happy with what you do.
Cut The Social Media
One of the main reasons people often feel they aren’t happy with their lives and the things they have is that they see friends and family with things they lack. If this sounds like you (be honest), it is time to ignore these people on social media. If it isn’t just certain people but social media as a whole, then it’s time to delete the apps completely off your phone. Less focus on social media will help you to be happier with what you have.
Make a List
As weird as it sounds, sometimes even just making a list can help you be happy with what you have. So, take the time to catalog all the amazing things you have in your life. They do not have to be things either; you could also include attributes you are thankful for and people you are glad to have in your life. For best results, you should make lists of what you are thankful for regularly.
Celebrate The Little Things
Another reason that people find that they can’t be happy with what they have is that they are waiting around only to celebrate the major milestones of life—and there simply aren’t that many big milestones. Instead, you need to practice celebrating the small wins in life, no matter how small they may be! Did you get through an entire week of workouts? Tell all your friends! Or maybe you decorated a new wall—send pictures to your family! Celebrating the small wins in life will help you realize how many amazing things you should celebrate. These mini-celebrations will help you to be happier with what you have.
Sometimes, it can be quite the challenge to be happy with the things you have in life, but if you cut the social media, you may find this is a huge catalyst for your happiness. Follow this by making a list of what you are grateful for and celebrating the small things, and you will be happy with what you have in no time!
