I want to touch upon emotions. Something that I came across recently was the saying ‘the happy side of neutral.’ This is telling us that our life isn’t spent experiencing heightened emotions and rather the chasing a state of happiness as this is actually impossible, we should aim for the happier side of our most neutral state.
The next question is how do we do this? Through gratitude.
As humans we always look for the negative emotion to protect us and it is more natural for us to feed emotions such as anger or sadness.
When it comes to emotions such as happiness or joy we experience these in a fleeting moment and then return to a neutral state.
If we want to give our happy moments more length in time, we need to be grateful and appreciate things. Write down a list of 3 things that you are grateful for each day and be more present in the activities that you do.
I hope that this has given you inspiration for practice being grateful. It honestly works, mindfulness all the way.
All The Best,
