 Figure Out What Makes You Truly Happy

Being alone gives you a wonderful opportunity to figure out what truly makes you happy and gives you the perfect chance to get to know yourself better.You need to be able to be happy alone first, and love yourself in order to give your love to someone else and have a successful life.

You need to know and experience what real love and happiness is like by yourself before you commit to loving someone else. Here are some ideas that can help you to feel more positive.

Get to know yourself by spending some time alone in solitude. Do something that will help you relax and focus on your mind, body and soul. Go shopping, take a shower, listen to some new music, have a cup of tea, watch a marathon of your favorite show and don’t feel guilty about treating yourself or making yourself a top priority.

Get stimulated with what’s happening in your life. Perhaps it’s time to write a list of all the fun things and activities that make you smile.
Write down new places you would like to go to or books you would like to read. Once you start making this list, you will look forward to trying these new things and you will start to get excited about the possibilities available to you.

Sometimes all it takes to feel refreshed and happy is to change something simple out of your daily routine. By changing something in your surroundings, it will help you start fresh and prevent you from feeling like your life is stagnant.

Plan a cleaning or de-cluttering session. Get rid of things that are collecting dust or that you have been hanging on to because you’ll feel guilty if you throw them out. Remember that it’s time to start living for you and no one else. Only keep things that make you happy, are important, useful and meaningful to you.

Practice Self-Love

Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth. When you stop thinking about how other people can make you happy and practice self-love, you will soon realize what it feels like to be happy alone and be able to learn to love and accept yourself from the inside out.


Here Are Some Ways You Can Practice Self-love

Stop putting so much value on what others think. Everyone has their flaws whether they tell you or not. Once you have accepted that being alone is normal and natural, you will begin to realize that it’s okay and be perfectly happy while alone. Alone time will allow you to be mindful of your thoughts and surroundings. 

You will be able to feel happiness and peace and know that you have absolutely everything inside of yourself that you need to be completely fulfilled. You do not need to expect anything from anyone else. Focus on the positives; you are healthy, unique and have great hair, wonderful personality, nice legs, beautiful eyes, or whatever you decide.

You can also practice self-love by being aware of your negative thoughts. If you are constantly thinking with a dark cloud overhead then you will never leave room to let the sunshine through. There is a positive side and a negative side to almost any situation. Train your mind to think of the positive outcome and, over time, this will start to happen naturally.

Another way to get out of the negative thought clouds is to surround yourself with positive things and people.

Exercise And Build A Healthy Lifestyle

Maybe it’s time to reconnect with yourself on a physical level. Start a new exercise program that will help you get into shape, feel good about your body, and even reap the numerous benefits of endorphins.
Working out shouldn’t always seem like a chore, there are some great programs that will allow you workout with others in a fun way.

If you commit to joining a class and have a friend that signs up with you, you will be less likely to quit and you will have double the fun while you workout.

If you do not wish to make a big commitment, then start out small and check out some different types of workouts in free workout tutorials on YouTube to see which ones fit you best. Make these new exercises a part of your morning routine so it will keep you refreshed during the day. 

The best part about morning workouts is that you won’t be thinking about having to workout for the rest of the day because it’s already done! If you have a dog, you should have no problem going for a routine 20-minute walk or run. Your dog will love you for it and will help keep you committed by reminding you that it’s time for your walk; how can you say no to those cute little puppy eyes?

What’s eating you; or more like, what are you eating? Sometimes our diet can affect our happiness and bring our mood down. Take a look at what you have been eating, and look for healthier alternatives. A great way to do this is to use an app or diary for one week and write down everything that you have consumed. 

You might be surprised at just how much unhealthy food you are eating and when you review your journal at the end of the week, you will be able to see where there’s room for improvement in your diet.
In addition to the quality of the food we eat, the quantity of the food we eat can also effect your moon. 

Eating can give some quick relief but it is always followed by self-recriminations if you eat too much. Not only that but consuming large amounts of food can lead to lethargy. Simply by controlling portion sizes of the food we eat, we not only help to keep ourselves healthier, but also happier.

Sleep is also extremely important in order to keep you energized throughout the day and it even has the added benefits of helping you lose weight and keeping a healthy lifestyle, mind, and heart. Go to bed early and sleep in once in a while, but make sure you find a balanced schedule.


Find Your Passion And Cultivate It

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting it off? What’s wrong with trying it now? When you’re alone, you no longer have to consider other people’s plans. Choose to do something different that will be a challenge for you. It doesn’t matter what it is. It just needs to be something that you’re passionate about.

Try doing things that you’ve never done before. Try not to have your guard up and be open to all possibilities; you don’t know that you won’t like something until you’ve tried it. A great way to step out of your comfort zone is to do something new and fun each week. Remember to do things that benefit your inner-self .

Whatever the situation is, just try to put yourself out there and you’ll gain more confidence over time, eventually this will turn into a new habit. Make sure to try new things, experiment and do things you might not do otherwise. You may even find some great habits you want to keep forever.

Use Your Alone Time Wisely

There are many things you can do when you’re alone and watching TV shows might seem like a great idea at the time. This is okay once in a while but why not use this time wisely and get to know yourself better, learn something about yourself or challenge your mind. Read a great biography, watch an inspirational documentary. Lose yourself in your art, music, woodworking, cooking or any other meaningful work.

Need some inspiration? Spend all day at a gallery or museum and let your mind experience different reactions and emotions to these art pieces or educational experiences. Choose your time wisely and make sure that at the end of the day, you were happy and satisfied with what you accomplished.

Creating smart and realistic goals attached with a timeline will help keep you motivated. Start off small and focus on your most important tasks first. Once you get into a routine, you will not even have to think about your daily to-do schedule because you will have programmed your mind to just do it and get it done.

Why not take this time to focus on one or two aspects of your life that you have wanted to improve. Whether this involves your health, career, spirituality or finances, don’t let these wants and aspirations continue to be pushed to the side.We are who we become because of our life experiences from the past. 

Forgive yourself and acknowledge your mistakes from the past. Remember that the past does not always dictate your future. We all make mistakes and your mistakes do not define who you are or who you could be. Learn from mistakes, but celebrate the small wins of the present.Think of the person that you were 5, 10, or 25 years ago.

There will be many challenges, situations and obstacles that will come and go our way during our lives. If you had never made any mistakes or harbored any flaws, what type of person would you be now? What types of experiences would you have had and how happy would you really be if you were striving to be perfect for your whole life?

Now that you know how to be happy alone, it’s time to accept yourself for who you are and be positive and optimistic about whatever comes your way. You are normal, and your quirks are what make you unique from the others. Once you accept these thoughts, your world will become brighter and the opportunities will be endless.
