Now that I know I want to get happy, and now that I know there is Good Reason to get happy (see Law of Attraction), and now that I know my mood is entirely my responsibility..... How do I do it?
First, Stop doing all those things that focus your attention away from feeling good:
Stop listening to complaining.
Stop watching the news
Stop trying to control other people.
Stop trying to control circumstances.
Then, think about things that make you feel good;
That thing that made you proud
That thing your kid did
The clouds, the trees, the lake..
That thing that comedian said
Those movie quotes
This traffic that's moving so well
Those friends that gathered for that thing
This car that is so smooth and fun to drive
This pillow that feels so comfy
This air tempreature that is so perfect
That thing I'm looking forward to
That thing I remember that felt so good
It only tales 17 seconds for a thought to attract another thought like it. It only takes 68 seconds for a thought to start attracting things that match.
Then, think of things to do that feel good:
take a bath
take a nap
watch a funny movie
get a massage
talk to a happy friend
read a funny book
take a walk
look a stranger in the eyes and smile
make a funny Facebook post
take pictures of things
sing a song
listen to music
look around a room and try to think of as many things you like in that room as possible
think of a person and try to think of as many things you like about that person as possible
write happy words
go through the alphabet and write a happy-emotion word for every letter in the alphabet
