New Year Bliss The definition of “bliss” according to Merriam Webster, is “complete happiness.” How do you achieve complete happiness in the new year? You may not be able to achieve complete happiness, but you could resolve to be happier in the new year, all year long. The first thing that comes to my mind to make my life happier, is to remove the negatives and replace with positives. That can mean the negative in anything. Take any situation and turn it around to a positive situation. It may not always be clear how to do that, but many times, it is an easy fix. Change your way of thinking. If you wake up saying I feel bad, and say that several times during the day, you will feel bad. If you wake up not feeling your best, say it is going to be a great day and focus on all the good things, it will be a much better day! If you are in a negative financial situation, work towards making that better. Sometimes, spending less and trying to increase your income over time, will make that situation positive. The new year is always a good starting point to work on a better financial situation. You can set financial goals for the year and look back mid year to see the progress you have made. Make your day happier - This is easy. You know your daily routine. Prepare for it the night before. If you have children that are in school, make sure their clothes are laid out, backpacks and lunches are packed the night before. This way you are not running around looking for everything, and your morning will go smoother. Get up before your children, and do what you need to do, before they wake up. Breakfast on the table, before they awake is a good trick also! If you do not have children, your mornings can still be very hectic. Plan the night before. Know what you are going to wear the next day so you are not searching for that favorite sweater. Have you clothes hanging up near where you get dressed, ready to jump in to! Have any projects or things that you have to bring to work, laid out on the table or counter along with those car keys and cell phone. No running around searching for lost keys or cell phones! Lastly and most importantly - simply “be nice.” Being kind to others will only make you happier. A simple smile or a good gesture can make you and the recipient have a much better day. So smile and enjoy your day! Catherine Monceaux ShabbyLaneShops.com
