Happiness, 6

Studies have shown that people who spend a lot of time using social media are often less happy than they could be. It is so easy to compare oneself to what other “say” they have. There is reason to believe that much of that is magnified for social media and doesn’t reflect reality. Therefore, you are comparing yourself to a fantasy. Stop the comparison game. It will only result in anxiety and/or resentment. Instead of focusing on other people, focus on your own life. You can only compare your own progress in life. Doing so will help you to become more aware of the importance of your own accomplishments in life. Do something you love every day. Don’t just wish to be happier, do everything that lies in your power to affect this change. Remove from your life what makes you feel miserable. Learn to deal with difficulties in your life that you cannot get rid of. Listen to happy music for 10-15 minutes and choose to be happier because of it. More tomorrow.
