Top 3 Strategies to Boost Good Feelings
Boost Good Feelings – Good emotions are healthy for you, not only how they make you feel. According to research, when people are experiencing at least three times as many good emotions as negative ones, they feel and perform at their best.
Are you ready to increase your positive ratio? These are 3 strategies for increasing happy feelings in daily life:
- Determine and keep track of your happy feelings.
- Choose a specific happy emotion and take action to make it stronger.
- To motivate oneself, use a positivity treasure chest.
- Monitor Your Happy Feelings
List the pleasant feelings you are already familiar with and have had in your daily life. List everything. As you experience new feelings, add them.
Check your list once again. Consider (and list) the circumstances or individuals that you typically associate with each feeling.
At the conclusion of the day, you can review your list of feelings and note the instances in which you experienced various favorable feelings. Did playing successfully on the football pitch make you feel proud?
When your pals remembered your birthday, were you happy? Were you amused when your history instructor employed humor in that particular lesson?
Keeping a positive emotion journal might help us become more conscious of the good sensations we already have and the events or activities that trigger them.
Boost a Particularly Good Mood
Choose a good feeling you wish to experience more of. Say you wish to experience more delight. Consider the circumstances or experiences that helped you recognize your joy. As many as you can, list them.
Concentrate on little, everyday things, like a song that brings you joy every time you hear it. Consider adding that circumstance or endeavor to your list whenever you become aware of your joy.
Determine ways to include those activities or others like them in your daily life after determining what triggers the emotion you wish to increase.
Choose activities that are doable daily. Even if you can’t walk on the beach, you can still feel happy by listening to a piece of music that makes you want to go on vacation.
Decide on one or more everyday habits that will help you experience more of the sensation you desire. Set aside time for these encounters. They are beneficial to your mental health; consider them to be the emotional equivalent of your “5 a day” fruits and veggies.
Build a “Treasure Chest of Optimism”
Sometimes we lose sight of how to feel good again. We may require a prompt that can take us back to a happier emotional location. A positivity box (or folder) comes in handy at times like those.
A collection of mementos from our most rewarding events makes up a positivity box. These reminders rekindle the emotions connected to the happy times in our life, as well as our strengths, joys, and triumphs.
They also remind us of the fun we’ve had, the meaningful books or pieces of music, and the people who are significant in our lives. It’s a “treasure chest” of optimism.
Acquire items that bring you happy memories from your past
Rewards that serve as a reminder of a job well-done notes or cards from dear friends or family favorite inspiring sayings or song lyrics childhood keepsakes anything you created or drew a gift someone gave you a picture of a role model
Place everything in a box, binder, or folder that is easy to find. Alternatively combine the components to create a collage, poster, or mobile.
The most crucial thing is to just select objects that make you feel good. You can change their order, and add or remove items at any time.
Take a moment to peruse your treasure box when you are feeling down or discouraged to increase your good feelings. You can look through it whenever you want to give yourself a daily dose of encouragement.
You might find that as you work to increase your positive emotions, you feel happier, more successful, and more energized. Focusing on the good has a tiny daily commitment that has a great lifetime payoff.
