Background Information: Three Magic Keys for Happiness
1. Don’t wait for the Perfect Day
Being happy doesn’t mean that everything in your life has to be perfect. Even happy incidents – like a new job – only make us happy for a short time. Very soon we get used to it and end up on the same Happiness Level like before. Only 10% of our Happiness Level are made by outer circumstances. True Happiness is built by good relationships, gratitude and moments of joy.
2. Change your Focus
We cannot change everything out there in the world. But we can change the focus which we have on the world and thus change our mindset. Our brain receives 11 million bits of information every second. But the conscious part of our brain only processes 40 Bits of information per second. What we consciously perceive, depends on our former experiences, our values and our beliefs – in other words, our “Mindset”. If we change our Mindset, everything around us starts to change.
3. Train your Brain
Usually, our Emotions are expressed by our Body Postures. More and more studies prove that this also works the other way round. We can influence our emotions and self-confidence by practicing certain body moves and postures. We can raise our level of joy by smiling and laughing.
Facial Feedback studies show that even a pretended smile (eg taking a pen between the lips) raises our Wellbeing and our good Mood. Signals are sent to the brain that we are in good energy, so the brain follows. Many studies prove that laughter is healthy. Even if we practice laughter as an exercise and start it intentionally, withour any joke or comedy. Medical science (“gelotologists”) found out that Happiness Hormones are released when we laugh: Dopamin, Serotonin and Endorphins.
