“Increasing your joy quotient” is a matter of accumulating enough happy and joyful moments in your life to give you the resilience to carry you through the times that are sad, difficult and challenging. There are ways of being happier and more joyful more of the time and there are also ways to build your resilience. Both of these will lead to a generally more peaceful, assured quality of life that is more joy filled and happy. It is much simpler than we sometimes think to be and stay happy. The list below will keep a smile on your face and in your heart!
If you do all of these things you will have an amazing life; if you do most of them you will be very happy and if you just do some of them some of the time, you will likely be happier than most people, most of the time. We will all, always continue to experience times that are sad, hurtful, challenging and just plain feel bad. It helps if we experience an abundance of happy times and the resultant happy feelings to carry us through those times. That ability to buoy ourselves up through the storm of difficult times is referred to as resilience and there are ways we can develop this characteristic, as well. Below are a few ways to be more resilient.
If you learn to do the things listed above your resilience will grow and you will find that your ability to get through the tough times and bounce back more quickly from adversity will increase significantly. You will still feel things deeply and completely, but they will not defeat you and you will always see the light at the end of the tunnel and it will not seem so far away.
