23 Jul Scanning Our Happiness
The state of being happy, content, and fulfilled is a feeling that arises from within and is associated with the things and people that exist in our lives. There comes a point where taming down the negative thoughts becomes important to stay optimistic.
Batting With Negative Thoughts
All humans have the tendency to think and think about the worse possible situation. It is researched that human beings have a habit to think more about the bad experiences than the good ones. It’s just how it is but the good thing is that we also have the capability to control our thoughts align them in proportion.
The key to being positive and staying happy is to be soft with yourself. Oftentimes, we tend to take control and in the middle of it, we become too harsh on ourselves and end up getting more hurt.
We need to let loose and give ourselves chances and opportunity to improve. In this way, we become our own friend and have a safe space to be in. It is said that no one else is responsible for your happiness except yourself. This is majorly true because when we are fulfilled within ourselves, this is where we don’t feel the need for external factors to make us happy.
The habit of questioning yourself in a better way and not labelling or criticizing actually does help and go a long way. This is because, during this process, you realize your worth and your ability to cope up with things just the way they are. It also helps with pushing boundaries and observing how far you can go. This is what leads to you being in charge of your own happiness and self-worth.
This might seem easy but is actually a process that involves mind control. It’s not rocket science, it just involves you taking control of your senses and feelings. It is said that what you think becomes an integral part of your brain. The way you think rotates generally around the life decisions that you make.
According to an article by The New York Times, “optimism can be part genetic, part learned.” This signifies that most people are born with thinking positively and hoping for the best possible outcomes as compared to those people who are not born with it and have to work hard on themselves in order to achieve a positive mindset.
This does not mean that life is all glitter for those people who are born with being optimistic. It is all part of the learning and there is the practice required when it comes to maintaining positive thoughts and opinions in order to effectively deal with situations.
Optimism is also gained by surrounding yourself with optimistic people so make sure to be choosy when it comes to the people you spend time with!
This point is evident on its own that you cannot be happy all the time because your brain cannot stabilize itself into one state all the time. For this purpose, it is recommended to invest in mood elevators and mood enhancers that have euphoric properties and uplift the mood within a few minutes.
A good example is a natural mood enhancer in the form of a herb called kratom. Kratom is a herb that contains biological compounds and alkaloids like mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine which help with mood elevation and stimulate the brain to release dopamine and other chemicals which provide a giddy feeling and a general ‘happy-go-lucky’ mood.
This herb can be consumed in the form of powder, capsules, and tea. It has multiple strains but the specific ones that provide euphoric effects are White Borneo Kratom, Maeng Da Kratom, Green Malay Kratom, and Bali Kratom.
