12 Apr Changing Your Story: A Few Thoughts From Our President, Jeff Russell
I recently saw a quote that hit me: “Whatever determines your happiness is what you do every day.”
I’ve written about happiness before. Back in July, I talked about how it can be hard to be happy or not always easy to be happy.
I am not sure who wrote that quote, but it’s a good one. What do you do every day? Do you watch TV for hours? Do you eat crappy food for every meal? If so, how can you expect to be happy; like genuinely happy and not just at that moment?
I am not saying there isn’t a place for those things sometimes. Life is about balance.
Depending on the situation, we might do those things to laugh or lose ourselves in the story. And, that’s perfectly okay! Just keep in mind why you are doing those things and ask yourself if they will ultimately lead to a happy life. And, if they don’t, change your story!
Here are some things that I do daily to help me stay focused on changing my story to create happiness:
- Moving: That might mean walking, swimming, or hiking. It can be any activity to get you moving.
- Eating Healthy Foods: That one is pretty straightforward, but if you need some guidance, do a Google search before you make your next trip to the grocery store.
- Staying Hydrated: And, no, I don’t mean lots of soda, beer, or energy drinks. Water!
- Meditating or Journaling: If those two things aren’t your jam, practice waking up being grateful or help someone else during the day.
So, this week, think about what it’s going to take for you to be happier. How do you want to change your story? What are some things you can do to make that story an awesome one?
Life is good. – Jeff
