Find yourself constantly chasing something better around the corner?
Like the idea that you “can only be happy if”:
- If you get enough money to buy a bigger house
- If you get enough time off to go on a “around-the-world trip”
- If you get yourself a (better) therapist
- If you figured out how to find the perfect partner (or improve your current partner)
And it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking like that.
Especially with the pressure from the media and companies bombarding us with advertising and product placements to get us to want to buy more, more, and even more.
I am sure you’re aware though, that the source of happiness does not depend on “that something” that the mind tricks us into chasing.
Just as in Paulo Coelho’s book, “The Alchemist”, the source to our happiness is not dependent on going on an long journey or adventurous treasure hunt.
The journey we need to take is the inner journey.
Begin by simply learning how to meditate.
The act of meditation itself (daily) will make you feel more calm and balanced, as well as a large host of other benefits ranging from increased concentration, to reduced stress, anxiety and lowering your blood pressure.
Plus you get more in touch with who you really are, and that is the perfect place to be when you want to you make important decisions about your life and your own happier future.
“Meditation can reintroduce you to the part that’s been missing.”
– Russell Simmons
