How to be happy: 18 tips towards a happier, healthier you

How to be happy – it’s the 64 billion dollar question! We attract to our lives all our experiences and then we get to interpret them either in ways that support us or in ways that diminish the quality of our lives. So, what are the secrets to manifesting true and sustainable happiness in our lives?

In fact, when was the last time you even consciously thought about your own happiness? Even so with the unprecedented times it is becoming challenging for us to even quest of being happy as most of us are focusing on the grey clouds in the sky. Life is dim and gloomy, and showers are just minutes away. But we forget something…we don’t remember that just behind those clouds, the sun is beaming brightly – every single minute of every single day.

We at Self Love Today have recognised that it can be somewhat tough for most people to lead a happy and fulfilling life. If you’re wondering how to be happy, our purpose is to help you blow away your grey clouds – and bask in your own beautifully happy sun.
