Loneliness is often a curse for many! It is really depressing, being alone! But there are several ways you can utilize your leisure hours to stay happy, transforming your loneliness into bliss!
It’s your own self, your soul that keeps you happy! No one can make you happy unless you want to be one! So making yourself happy is entirely in your own hands. If you want to be so, you can be! Still there are a few tips that can help you keep yourself happy and contented even when you are alone, without any family member, friends or even your parents!
Think and Jot down what makes you Happy
This is one of the most inspiring steps to start with! Everyone has a list of things or activities that can make one happy. It could be anything – playing cards, video games, writing diary, painting, listening to music, watching movie or plays, hanging out etc. Just keep a list of all those activities and ensure you haven’t missed out anyone (even if you have, you can always add to it).
Now try each activity one by one. I would suggest scheduling a daily plan to cover most of the activities in 2-3 days! It will not only keep you engaged with variety of activities but will also not allow you go bored due to various activities. Even if you are in no mood to make effort to do it, motivate yourself doing these activities because you know this is all that are the sources of your happiness.
Keep Your Surrounding Tidy and Clean
Yet another very important tip that can keep you high in spirit as cluttered and disorganized wreck tend to spoil your mood and you may feel stressed out.
So, loneliness is the best time when you can clean your surrounding like home, garden your parking lot and of course your clothes and other appliances. Clutter free place flow a positive energy and good luck into your life and future and thus a secure and happy future is one of the best sources to be happy in your life.
So in a way you invite happiness and prosperity in your life if you clean your home and surroundings. Your loneliness becomes a boon for you, if you can develop this perception in your life!
Do things that you Missed Out
Everyone misses something in life that he/she could not do due to various constraints earlier. This is the time you can recollect all those things that you wished to do but could not! Probably you wanted to learn driving, swimming or singing, which your could not! This is the right time to going back to those memories and trying to enliven it. It will not only provide you with ample enthusiasm and happiness but it will also add to your personality and skill sets. It’s your soul that has to be happy to make you happy. Concentrate what makes you happy – rest happiness will follow automatically, for sure!
Concentrate Doing Something for Others
This is the biggest game changer when it comes to happiness. I am sure, there is no grater happiness than bringing happiness and smile in others life! If you could do so, I guarantee, you would never repent on your life and go saying I could not lead a fruitful and happy life! This is the biggest truth of life and the most perfect way to lead a happy and successful life. Have you ever thought – why people who are blessed with plenty of wealth and success are alone and depressed in their personal lives? Because they earned what can make them happy in other eyes but they missed out making happy their souls. As human being are programmed to enrich and spread happiness to others lives! If you can bring a slight smile in someone’s face, no better deed can make you happier!
This is the biggest achievement of anyone life, and rich and wealthy people lacks only this attitude. They think of their own self, success and prosperity! I have witnessed those people who are down to earth and donate a lot, are happier and luckier than others who’re self centered and mean. Loneliness is the greatest boon doing such deeds in your life. In a way, I should say you are fortunate that God has chosen you to do such great deeds for others! Never repent on your loneliness, make merry by bringing happiness and pleasure in other life. Your life will be filled with happiness and blessings. And there is no better way to lead a happier life than earning blessing and good wishes.
Someone is Less Fortunate than you
If you are still not happy, remember there are millions of people who are not as fortunate as you are! Think about those people and express your gratitude to your almighty for blessing you a better life compared to thousands and millions of people who are much, much misfortunate than you. People are suffering from several ailments, debts, criminal cases, threats, mental and physical disabilities, the list is endless. Aren’t you away from all these? Aren’t you in a better position and luckier than all those? Why should you be worried and depressed?
It’s a Part of your Life
Finally if you are still not satisfied that your loneliness is graceful and you can still make merry, just accept it as a way of your life. As life is full of ups and downs; if you are alone today, this situation will not last for long. A day will come, when you will be blessed with a family and loved ones. I am sure! Let this phase of your life pass on. Once you have cross passed this phase, you will find a new and stronger person in you, which will enable you face your future life more enthusiastically and strongly.
So friend, it’s your life, your soul and your choice how you make the best of it. Tips are many, how you can utilize these tips, and how effectively each one of these could work for you, is entirely your own strategy and planning and of course your own perception to make your life happier and successful.
