Five tips for a happier life
Wise decisions can’t be made without taking other people and the broader context into account.
- Look for the hidden good in people. Your own attitude affects how situations appear to you ― and how you appear to others.
- Take charge of your own life by listening to the voice of your heart through deeper reflection ― delving into what you know is right. A gloomy atmosphere might feel real, but there's always a way out towards something more positive.
- Regularly switch off performance mode. Pick up a random book, have a chat with a friend or work colleague, or go for a walk. Allow your mind to wander without the pressure to achieve or perform, and new ideas will start to flow.
- Wise decisions can’t be made without taking other people and the broader context into account. Everyone benefits if you show interest, ask questions, examine alternatives and keep things in perspective.
- Love your loved ones. Open up channels for kindness in your daily life by daring to believe that good will prevail.
