What is the secret to happiness? Loving and being happy with yourself! But how do I get there? How can you be happy and kinder with yourself? Once you crack that, you are halfway to becoming the best version of yourself. We have listed few ways which might help you:
Prioritize your day
One of the best ways to ensure a healthy balance between your work and personal life is to prioritize tasks to be done and to follow it. Every morning, make a list of ‘to-do things’ and refer that to complete your goal for the day.
Exercising before starting your day will increase energy level, makes you more productive and active and will decrease your chances to go into depression. A simple but an effective method for both your physical and mental health.
Don’t take life too seriously
Stop drowning yourself in work and commitments and remove some time for yourself. The more you take life seriously, the more anxious you will be. Let it go and move on from things beyond your control. If you start over-analyzing every aspect of life, you will never find happiness. If it doesn’t matter in 5 years, do not waste more than 5 minutes on it.
Stop comparing yourself to someone else. You will never be happy or proud of yourself if you practice that. The only person you can compare yourself with is YOU. Get inspired by your idols but try to be a better version of you rather than being them. That’s unique!
Being emotionally aware
Emotions can change your behavior and attitude towards people which can make or break your relationships. Being emotionally aware and knowing how to react to situations can make you powerful. Do not disregard your emotions but also do not let it control your thoughts. This will lead to endless cycle of over-thinking and self-criticism. Take deep breaths if you ever want to calm yourself and get clarity on your thoughts.
Reflect on your mistakes, past and thoughts. Learn from it and accept it. Accept yourself and do not fake your persona. If you show your true self, people will automatically start loving you for you. Stop trying to please others by being what they want you to be. It’s time to put yourself first.
Every morning tell yourself 3 things you are grateful for. This can be something as simple as ‘I am grateful for having shoes on my feet’. This practice will keep you grounded and happy. It will remind you to be humble and kind.
Good Eating Habits
Staying hydrated, eating well and sufficient sleep are equally important to stay healthy both mentally and physically. Do not cut out these essential practices from your life on the note that ‘you will be saving time’. This will do you worse than good.

The most important key to self-happiness is consistency. Be consistent in whatever you are doing. Do not give up on yourself. Results will not show overnight but give yourself time and we promise you, you will get everything you wished for. Meditation and yoga will help you de-clutter your thoughts and attract positivity. Once you start following this, nobody can stop you from being the best and the happiest version of yourself.
