Happiness has a ripple effect. When you’re feeling happy, you end up sending your positive energy to those people around you, whether you realize it or not. Someone’s day can be completely turned around by your smile, your silly text, or your “thinking of you” phone call.
Find Time For You Every Morning
The ripple effect of happiness starts you with you. So try to get your day started by finding a few moments for yourself. Do something in the morning that brings you joy and puts you into a positive mindset for the rest of the day.
- If you’re not sure what that might look like, try these ideas:
- Practice yoga. Do a few sun salutations or try a class online.
- Take a few moments to read from one of your favorite books.
- Set your intention for the day by journaling.
- Meditate in a quiet, comfortable space.
- Listen to one of your favorite playlists.
Others Will Echo What You Share with Them
Taking the time in the morning to do something that makes you happy and then continuing this effort throughout the day creates more happiness in both others as well as yourself. As you share your positive vibes with others, their joy will begin to resonate with you as well. What you send out will return back to you – like an echo. The more you send out, the more you’ll start to notice yourself finding more joy in little moments and interactions.
Create a Daily Practice
Finding and doing things that make you happy isn’t always an easy task. In fact, some days it can be really difficult. But if you keep trying to make it a daily practice, you and those around you will experience the benefits. With time, you’ll begin to recognize how your own happiness can spread and ripple out to others. And at the same time, you can learn to rely on those around you for their ripples when you need it most.
