Love. According to researchers studying happiness, that’s a thing we should get more in our daily life. But how?
Many researchers suggest that we could get more love feelings to our lives spending more time with other people. However, in the western world more and more people live alone. Living alone means spending usually much time alone.
Not all relationships increase your happiness
Even if you have people around you it is not that simple. Although it is really important to build good relationships and spend much time with other persons, not all relationships and time spent with others increases your happiness. Sometimes even opposite. Some people are more or less exhausting energy-robbers.
So how to increase love to your life?
You cannot force others to love you ( at least it will be difficult) or even be nice for you. What you can do, is to deliver love and acceptance to others.
Try to spend more time with most important people in your life. Plan movie nights with your friends and organize small parties for your gangs. (It does matter if your gang is three small kids and a big smelling dog, a weird neighbour or ex-members of your soccer team) You can always build the spirit of the happy community around.
If you are a busy person who has always boring daily duties, try to do them together with someone you like instead of doing them alone.
Think loving thoughts
When you are alone, think loving thoughts about your dearest people, send them messages and carry their photos in your wallet. Even when you cannot be with them, your heart and soul can. That keeps the love flowing in your life and increases your happiness.
Behave loving and friendly to all your fellows. Do small favours to people around you. Smile to the strangers you meet. Get some animal friends; they are so easy to love.
Even when the love comes from you, you will find more happy connections and positive energy. After a while, delivering more love not only makes you feel happier but also more loved.
Love is huge universal power and it is definitely not meant only for romantic couples or families. It is there available for everyone. Share it and spread it around.
