Mantras for Happiness:
more of what makes you happy
A brilliant mantra to remind us that we are in control
of our own state of mind. If we know what the things are that make us happy,
and we prioritise them, and plan our free time around them – then we can build
far more happiness into our lives.
happy. Be bright. Be you.
A mantra to remind us to be ourselves, and not to
let other people drag us down. If you are a naturally positive and upbeat
person, don’t let others suck that out of you with their negative mindset. ‘You
do you’ is another way of saying this – be true to yourself, and be happy and
relaxed in your own skin.
the world with sunshine every day
A reminder that it is within our control to be happy
and upbeat, and to spread positivity and joy. Think before you speak – and make
your comments positive and helpful, not negative. Don’t spread bad news stories
or negative opinions. Go out of your way to find nice things to say, and aim to
be the person who brings lightness, laughter and love to the situation or the
am exactly where I’m supposed to be
I absolutely love this mantra as a way of bringing
calm and peace of mind to your life. We can often feel anxious about our lives,
worrying that we haven’t achieved what we had hoped; or aren’t in the job,
relationship or financial situation that we had envisaged, by this point in our
lives. If we can reassure ourselves that this is part of a bigger plan, and
trust that life will find a way of working things out, then we can take much of
the worry and stress out of our life, and open our minds to new possibilities.
the sweet moments in life
A reminder to consciously look out for small moments
of happiness and joy in every day, to make your life happier. Happiness is
often the accumulation of several small moments, rather than one big bang of
joy – and it is up to us to be open to these moments. Rather than rushing
through life on autopilot, we need to take the time to notice the small things
and pay attention to what makes us smile and laugh.
to the festival of life
I love this mantra as a reminder to let go and just
go with the flow. Stop trying to control all aspects of your life, and second
guess the outcome of each event or situation. Let go of expectations, let go of
control – and just enjoy what life brings you.
often and much
A plea to find things in life that make you laugh.
Laughter is good for us. It boosts our mood, and creates a flow of endorphins.
Seek things out that make you laugh – movies, books, stand-up comedians, tv
programmes, people. You will feel better for it, and life will seem much more
fun and light-hearted.
hold onto hope, I trust in tomorrow
Another brilliant reminder to try very hard to adopt
a positive and optimistic attitude to life. If we can find a way of hanging
onto positive emotions like hope, trust, faith, belief and excitement, our lives
will be better for it. Living our lives from a place of optimism and hope makes
for a happier and lighter life than one where our dominant emotions are
mistrust, fear and negativity. Even if we are sometimes disappointed in life,
the good emotions will far outweigh the bad.
attract only good things
A great affirmation to draw positivity and happiness
into your life. We may not be able to control what happens to us in life, but
we can change our attitude towards it, and open ourselves up to looking out for
good things happening around us. Keep an open-minded and positive approach and
a can-do mindset, and you will be far more likely to notice the good things
Use our Happiness Mantras to
remind you of the mindset and emotional state that you are aiming for in life.
Maybe not all the time, but as much of the time as possible – let’s keep our
faces to the sunshine and a ready smile on our faces, to greet life with
gratitude, lightness and optimism.
