Psychologists identify six behaviors that often prevent people from living a happy life. It is reported by MedikForum.
First of all, these are complaints. Constant whining and complaining radiate negative energy, which often negatively affects not only your own well-being, but also those around you. While talking about the difficulties of life helps to get rid of anxiety, it is possible to wallow in them without noticing – as well as in the self-pity that they cause.
Psychologists also consider high expectations to be the “killers” of happiness. Big and ambitious ideas can be motivating, but you should also consider that life sometimes makes its own plans. Failures and losses are always possible in it, one must be able to treat this philosophically. Otherwise, the discrepancy between reality and dreams and ideas can be a very painful blow and prevent you from being happy.
It is not recommended to compare yourself with others, although in the age of social networks it is almost impossible to avoid this. But this comparison is not fair, because everyone’s experience is different, and you never know what the other person might have gone through to get where they are now. In addition, often someone else’s ideal life is more an appearance than a reality.
Inability to live here and now. There is no need to give up the habit of making plans for the future, but the world is changeable, and plans are not always destined to come true. If you understand that the present moment is always important in your life, you have taken a big step towards happiness, psychologists emphasize.
It is also contraindicated to speak derogatoryly about yourself. Many people are the harshest critics of themselves. In the long run, this pattern of behavior can cause a lot of stress and make you unhappy. Instead of self-criticism and self-criticism, ask yourself more often: “What would I say to myself if I were my best friend?”.
Finally, too little gratitude. Often, when evaluating their lives, people focus on what they have not yet achieved or learned. Meanwhile, in order to be more satisfied with life, we need to appreciate what we already have more often. The more often you thank fate for them, the stronger the feeling of well-being will be.
