10 Steps to Happiness

 photo Spread Happiness 2_zpsulx5vpcf.jpg

We are all seeking for people, things or situations to make us happy. Isn't happiness a personal responsibility of each individual?
Happiness is contagious yes, but for we to receive it from others, we also have to give it. It is a two edged sword.

When you are content with your life, it is natural that you will spread the happiness vibe everywhere you step. The illusions that diamond is a girl's best friend is a myth. Confidence and Contentment is everybody's best friend.
Instead of waiting for someone to make us happy, why not find it within us and then just spread it all around generously!

Here are some simple every day routine that will increase your happy bar.

  1. Never go to sleep angry, no matter what always sort out whatever happened in the day and go to sleep without any care in the world.
  2. Wake up with a smile and an "I can do that" attitude. It will get you through any obstacle that comes your way as the day unfolds.
  3. Smile and greet people on your way to work/school. You are being a carrier of happiness and might make someone's day.
  4. Be kind to the people in your daily life, some people will make it hard for you. But it is not about them, it is about keeping your own energy field positive and filled with happiness.
  5. Take responsibility. Things do go wrong in life sometimes, make sure you are not pointing fingers. Accept total responsibility for who you are and what you become. Responsibility is joy and liberty.
  6. Forgive and never hold a grudge. When you are angry at someone for their behaviour, express it in a nice way, don't attack them and let it go. People who hold grudges are unhappy and always bitter.
  7. Call/Skype your long lost friend from boarding/high school, remind each other all old and silly memories. laugh out loud.
  8. Exercise for at least 30 minutes daily. You learn to love and understand your body, which makes you more comfortable in your own skin. Yoga, Zumba, hiking, Pilates, running, weights, the options are endless.
  9. Do random act of kindness to total strangers. It is like a ripple, you will never forget the beautiful expression on their face. Buy someone a coffee or leave some generous tip.
  10. Sing your heart out and dance in  your underwear as if you are the queen of Sao Paulo carnival!.

In today's outfit, I am styling a beautiful gift of happiness from an online store that couldn't have chosen the perfect name for their boutique, Happiness Boutique .
They are a Berlin based boutique that sells cute accessories, statement jewellery and clothing items.
Their theme is to make people who buy their items, look and feel good!
Since I agree with their purpose to spread happiness, I jumped on the ship of collaboration with them within an heartbeat.
They offer free shipping worldwide and it is quite fast, at least mine was, it got to me in 3 working days.
There is also a customer reward program, if you buy their items and review it or tag them when you post on social media. You will get a details about that on here.
I picked up this show stopper necklace among many amazing options. I always have a thing for statement necklaces but this one just got my jaw to drop.
I will drop the un-boxing video, just so you see how giggling and silly I was and of course happy.
I hope this post inspired some confidence and happiness into your week.

    Great tips. I agree 100% with not going to bed angry and to stop holding grudges against people. Life is too short to be upset with people.

  14. Very beautiful tips. I wanted to come and see my darling friend in this sekzi white dress. You are a babe and happiness is written all over that beautiful sweet soul of yours. Lovely post!!


  15. You are fantastic! First, love your tips and share them! Second, you look so stunning in that outfit, very chic and sexy! Third, you made me smile watching the video, you are so fun! Hugs my girl! xo
