Happy, relaxed and calm

Happy people have low moods, disappointments and problems just as people who have unhappy dispositions do, the only difference is that happy people will adapt more easily so that they deal with their disappointments and low moods swiftly and with good grace.

You only have to observe happy people to see how relaxed and calm they are. They have a relaxed and calm demeanour about them, regardless of what they’re dealing with. Happy people generally tend to be more content with their lives and know too take the rough with the smooth. They’re ready for what comes their way.

They are aware of how they feel, at any given point. They accept the inevitable and usually take things in their stride. They tend not to panic and know that just as their low moods come, they will also go. They seem to be more accepting of their feelings and aren’t fazed by what they have to deal with. They get on with putting their world right.

Ever since I was a little girl I have always had things to think about and deal with. My beliefs and my past experiences help shape my ability to be relaxed and calm and by dealing with and bringing closure on my issues. My experiences in turn have shaped my personality and my ability to deal with my issues with some ease.

So the next time you’re feeling low, try not to fight your feelings. Try to be relaxed and calm. Once those low feelings dissipate, you’ll have a chance to turn your mood round, primarily because you’ll be more relaxed and therefore calm.

  1. I don’t have much time to have a low mood. I stay fairly busy, but when I am in a low mood I usually stay there until something comes along to bring me out of it.

    I’m so used to staying busy all the time. May be that’s just my way of dealing with things unpleasant.

    1. I agree with you. I believe we stay busy, avoid the moods so we don’t have to deal with as you say ‘things unpleasant.’ That way we get to put off what we should really be dealing with.

      The idea is that we learn to introduce a more relaxed, calm and happy state, regardless of what we’re dealing with. We will always have things to deal with, that is a given, but it’s how we perceive what we have to deal with, that brings about our happy state.

  2. I’m trying to be happy, relaxed and calm but life somehow manages to throw me a curve ball every now again and that’s when I get stressed.

    I am way better at coping with that nowadays.

    1. I’m pleased you are.

      If we can’t get to that stage where we automatically know what makes us happy then we’re lucky; but otherwise it’s always good to have coping strategies so that we can cope with at least trying to be happy.

      As you say, given what we sometimes have to deal with that’s not always easy.
