Meditating Happiness

By Nishall Garala

WITH the current uncertainties occurring, the pressures of our daily lives and all the negativity in the national media, it’s important to take a step back and breathe. It’s very easy to become overwhelmed with everything going on, as well as feeling like you don’t know what’s going to happen next. In times like this, it is vital to meditate happiness.

When I say meditating happiness, what I mean by this is taking 5 to 10 minutes each day to reflect on the good things happening in your life. I understand that every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day, and even if it’s a little thing, it’s vital to take time to appreciate it. By following this, you teach your mind and body to experience the joy of the moment. As you invite happiness into your life in this way, the uncertainties of the world, pressures of our daily lives and the general negativity can become much easier to deal with. I’m not a counsellor or a mental health professional, but I do understand what many people may be feeling right now, as I often have bad days too, where I simply feel overwhelmed.

By taking the time to be on your own, reflecting on happy thoughts, it can help to calm the mind, and bring yourself together. However, sometimes self-reflection isn’t easy, so another way to meditate happiness is to talk to friends and family, or even a mental health professional. Talking to someone else about what you’re going through or feeling can also help you to much feel better.

Meditating happiness is the greatest achievement that we can attain. It is like discovering a hidden treasure within us. But, to access this treasure we need to initially focus inwardly. As we meditate more we will gain more confidence in our basic nature of well-being and this gives tremendous meaning and satisfaction to our lives whilst reducing the overwhelming thoughts that causes us to be sad and anxious.
