The year ends, the celebrations cease and with them the euphoria, there are no more distractions, and we inevitably think about what the 12 months that have passed have taken. It is a period of nostalgia, which makes us feel vulnerable, sensitive, even sad. And yes, maybe our resolutions from last year have been a failure, but this year you have a new opportunity to allow yourself to be happy. GrupoLaberinto, the latest concept of psychotherapy, teaches you 20 habits with which you can achieve happiness this 2020:
Live the present: Obsessing with the past or the future, both out of your control, is one of the main causes of anxiety and anguish. Enjoying what you live “here and now” is essential to feel satisfied with your life and therefore be happy.
The happiness is in you: Something very common and very wrong is to believe that other people are responsible for our happiness. It is important that you learn to be happy independently, other people (family, friends, partner *) are complements of your happiness, not its origin.
Set goals: This way you will be more aware of your achievements. Set realistic goals and do not saturate yourself, the purpose is to see results, not to collapse. Each goal set and exceeded is one more step to get closer to happiness.
Do exercise: Scientifically, physical activity produces proteins and endorphins that make us feel happy, and if we add to this the improvement of the image, we have a happiness bomb at our fingertips. You can start small with a few minutes a day, and increase as time goes by and according to your needs.
Sleep more: Sleep helps the body recover, it makes us more productive and positive. Getting adequate rest decreases our sensitivity to negative emotions, which will bring benefits to your mental health and happiness.
Salt outdoors: Taking a walk, feeling the fresh air in your skin and seeing the light of day, will make you feel refreshed and rested. Only 20 minutes a day can bring great improvements in your mood and help you cope with a better attitude the day and the week ahead.
