We all want to improve ourselves in some way. The start of a new year seems the perfect time to re-evaluate ourselves and think of ways we can make our outlook on life more positive.
It’s easy to set goals such as getting fit or getting involved with different activities and these are great ways to increase our happiness. However, without consistency, achieving happiness in this way can only be short-lived.
That’s why setting goals around improving your energy is a much better way of cultivating the happiness we all want to have.
By energy, I mean the way we feel about things, people and situations. Asking yourself what is the energy is behind what you want to do – are you feeling good about it or are you feeling forced and reluctant?
Getting more in tune with our emotions is hugely important in guiding us on the right path. Many of us choose to ignore our gut feelings or dismiss our intuition about things but it’s exactly this that is routing us to a better direction.
Energetic goals could be anything from changing your mindset, trying to be more understanding about other people’s situations or opinions, being more open with people or more vulnerable with your feelings, or just not giving in to the comparison game. All these things involve your inner energy and emotions and effect how you feel which, in turn affects how you act and make others around you feel.
In fact it’s a massive circle that starts with you. If you change your mindset and outlook to a more positive and open one, it will radically change how you feel about yourself, those close to you, strangers you come into contact with, your reactions to negative situations and rubs off on everything around you.
So instead of trying to lose 10 pounds or vow to make more money, try evaluating your energy and set your goals around how you feel. How do you want to feel today, this week, this month or by this time next year? By doing this other areas of your life will magically transform for the better and increase your ability to see and feel happiness all around you 🙂
