A great deal of research attests to the fact that the level of satisfaction with your role in your relationships (whether they be personal, professional, social or cultural) can significantly affect your quality of life. Studies have shown that happy people live longer, better quality lives.
Many people will then wonder, how on earth can I actively work on my happiness?
Happiness and social satisfaction are a direct result of the thought processes by which you view what is going on around you. It is essential, especially in a busy work culture such as ours, that we commit a certain amount of time daily to concentrate on our happiness and to focus our thought process in a positive direction. Even taking two minutes during your day to sit quietly with your eyes closed and engaging in deep breathing can be of immense benefit, as well as spending a few moments reflecting on the positives in your life.
Count your blessings!
