What defines good life quality? The answer to this question might be very different depending on each person’s priorities. However, if you want to learn to be happy, it might be very helpful to look at your life through the eyes of a child. Children often are happy, without knowing why. They just smile, believe and forgive. Very simple.
Time is just moving way too fast to yield up fun. Embrace your life as much as you want it. Celebrate the little things that make you feel special and happy and you will stick out a mile, because happy and satisfied people stand out. You could, for instance, bring back a piece of your childhood by sitting on a swing. Just sail a little bit through the air and free your mind. Act like a kid, don’t be shy. Sing and laugh while you’re oscillating back and forth and you will see, you will definitely feel much better after already 10 minutes of such a simple therapy. So here’s a tutorial to build your own swing set http://bit.ly/1PNj0tG. And in the end it’s not just fun you’ll have while sitting on this swing, but also the satisfaction you get by knowing it’s a DIY project, which you have just successfully implemented.
If you want to achieve something meaningful in your life, you have to learn to deal with rejection and criticism, even if it hurts. Artists of any kind often get rejected by audience, editors, critics. But it doesn’t mean that they should just give up. Sometimes you have to ignore the critics and sometimes it’s better to listen to them and to work on things they criticize. Aristotle said: “Criticism is something you can easily avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” This actually means, that you can’t avoid it as long as you live your life among other people, who live theirs. Don’t try to win everyone’s approval. Enhance you life by accepting people’s opinion without taking it as condemnation. Remember, you can’t control other people’s thoughts and opinions and you can’t expect everyone to approve your actions. However, you can control how you react to criticism, learn from it and when and how you should release it and and just move on.
Having a good life quality is not only important to be happy, but it will also give you a chance of longevity. Ever since I was a kid, I was always curious, how come some people can’t look forward to their birthdays. At that time I already knew some adults, who went crazy about their birthdays and those who didn’t care at all about these dates.
Anyway, birthdays have always been some kind of magical dates for me, just like New Year. And I’m glad that it didn’t change as I got older. You have to take care of yourself, if you want to enjoy your life. Based on an entry in The Science Of Appearance, everyone deserves to be celebrated and it’s already a pretty good reason to celebrate your birthday. I’m not nagging by saying all of you definitely have to celebrate your birthdays, I’m just saying, you should at least consider it ;)
What else could support good life quality? Well, laughter keeps you healthy for example. You can live much longer by seeing the humor in everything. Being easy-going doesn’t mean you don’t have to take care about anything serious in your life. Just don’t get mad and sad about these serious things. You can start by getting up every day and being positive. Keep on going and don’t let some silly minutiae stop you from doing what you love. It will pay off when the time is ripe. Since laughing is always helping, here are some hilarious GIFs to make your day: http://stumble.it/1LMArML .
