As the dark dreary long nights draw in – cold nights loom in London town- it is easy to become inactive and unhappy. The summer months always seem to bring such joy and happiness with them, as opposed to the other seasons. It does not have to be like that. You can change your unhappy mood to one of happiness; it just takes a bit of thought.
Being happy, relaxed and active is good for you and this means it’s good for your health. Happiness can be a barrier from the stresses and strain of modern day life. A healthy lifestyle should also mean a healthy and happy you. Too much stress can cause you to have many undesirable health issues and we all want to avoid that.
The wonderful thing about being happy is you can decide to be happy and you can then actively live a stress-free life. Change situations that are stressful and make you unhappy. You may not be able to do this overnight, but you sure can work progressively towards it! No situation remains the same for ever, all things change. When you find yourself in an awful place or situation, know that it can change and you can sometimes make the change occur quicker than you thought possible.
Going out and having fun is a good way to stay happy. Try to avoid arguing with people as this will only cause resentment and it always makes at least one person unhappy. Endeavour to understand different points of views instead of arguing against them and just get along, accepting that we are all different.
