Why Not have a little fun, it’s summer and usually the best way to change your mindset and Get Happy is by giving yourself permission!

I read an article the other day, that one of the reasons why American’s are unhappy, is because we feel confined in our choices. Stress often leads to feeling confined and boxed in where our personality can lean toward old habits, default modes and the good ole comfort zone. Resulting in a feeling of “stuck” in our jobs, finances, health and community.

Allow me to give you the crayon within your mind to color outside the lines and throw out the “confining” box! It’s time for you to play, imagine, feel good and think positive! Truly it is your time to shine. So here are a few ways to do that…

– Give yourself permission with knowing you deserve happiness and get to choose it when ever you want!

– Give yourself permission, to dance, laugh, get the blood flowing in your veins and just ALLOW.

– Give yourself permission to wear whatever you want or even nothing at all, oops. Point being, get comfortable in your own skin, take a bubble bath, relax and get in the water, it washes away the cobwebs of the mind and cleanses the old for the new to come in.

– Give yourself permission to visualize what your heart desires. Imagine it happening, right now, close your eyes and see this happy event taking place in your life. Yes, YOU! It can happen for you. So many people believe good only happens to others but not them. Guess what, you’re up, it’s your turn this time for good and great things to take form and happen. You are more than you ever imagined!! Just give yourself permission, it works!

– Give yourself permission to just stop. Stop the old thinking and self- doubt. This dampens your spirit. We need your spirit, your spirit is here to help others with your talent and your gifts. Don’t deny yourself or others of what you have to offer because when you do, it smothers your joy. Change things up and go IN- JOY!
Love you to the moon and back! – Jackie : )

Despite the obvious of what is negative happening in the world, it’s often how we respond to the negative that can make a BIG difference in your personal life. So what is happening in your personal life and how are you responding to it? When you think about how you respond to stress, negativity or what a loved one might be doing to upset you the response can take on a hidden effect that interrupts your daily life, energy level , eating habits and enthusiasm for being ALIVE. Which leads to the scientifically proven activity that improves happiness – which is SLEEP. Research shows that  adults  require 6 hours and 20 minutes of uninterrupted sleep. Over 60 million Americans  have chronic sleep disorders, which not only effects your well – being but also may have a deleterious effect upon you physical health and your happiness. Number On Activity interrupting Your Happiness

Here are a few tips for improving your sleep:

– Talk to a friend or mentor, air out your worries, concerns and talk it out. It’s important to empty the mind and replace it with what you desire , not what you fear. Fear is an unproductive response which can grow like a weed taking over the  positivity in your mind. Place your mental energy toward the positive and tell yourself that everything will be okay. Set the intention before you go to bed, that tonight will be a good night’s sleep!

– Have your last meal before 6:00 p.m. – your body requires energy to digest and different types of food could be interrupting a natural physiological process. Have a nice cup of green or mint tea (decaffeinated) to rest your digestion and calm the body.

– Keep any pesky illuminated mobile, computer or TV screens away from your bedroom. The light zaps your body and can deplete the natural biorhythms you require to attain a restful sleep, for one thing.

– Try listening to a meditation CD to lull you to sleep. Soft music and slow meditative breathing is a positive way to drown out the chatter in your mind.

–  Most women have trouble sleeping due to a lack of magnesium and calcium. Try taking those two supplements before you go to bed, it can work wonders.

Remember 10% of life is what happens to you, 90% is how you respond to it.

It feels satisfying to be able to control various aspects of our lives. We can, to an extent, control what classes we take in school, where we live, where we apply meditationto work, what we eat for lunch and even what logic we put behind our arguments. So why does it seem like something as personal as our emotions are so often out of our range of control?

Salon’s interview with neuroscientist Richard Davidson revealed the science behind how happiness and health are connected and why emotions can actually be more controllable than you may think. Although the connection between health and happiness is a relatively new one, he stresses the relationship between the brain and the body’s biological processes. Those with more resilient emotional styles were even shown to have stronger immune systems.

From experience, we know that improvement comes from practice and training. It’s hard to be good at something the first time you try, whether it has to do with sports, academics, occupation, relationships, or life changes. This can be applied to our emotions too. The term “neuroplasticity” refers to the ability of our brain to change and adapt according to our experiences. This means that nothing is set in stone, no matter what age group you fall into.

If the routine that we repeatedly follow does not produce the results we want, why would we expect new results the next time we do it? Being different requires thinking differently and doing something different! For example, not many people see the true value of meditation, and they brush it off without considering that it might have the potential to bring change into their lives. It is a type of mental exercise that can center our thoughts and emotions and give us a new way to start training them and controlling them. Not only does it bring a sense of peace and calming, but it also encourages good habits within the mind.

But just as each person is unique, so is their emotional style and way of learning new things. We’re not suggesting that you attempt to completely change yourself as a person or get rid of any of the emotions that you have already. Rather, use new techniques to get in touch with your unique emotional style, and start thinking of emotions as something that can intentionally be refined and developed. Don’t be afraid to take control of your life! By developing your brain, you can improve your emotional stability, and by improving your emotional stability, you can boost your health. Never stop yourself from being healthy, happy, and in control! Do what feels good, even if it’s a little scary, chances are you will survive with a smile.
