How to Feel Good (2 min read!)

Here's the real truth...

Most of us think that the way to feel better is to change what's going on around us.

  • The way others behave (because... we definitely don't need to change, right?!)

  • Our environment/house/neighborhood

  • Our job

  • Our education

  • Our possessions (new! more! better!)

We think, "If only xyz were different, then I could be happy".

And so we rely on these external things to make us feel good:

  • Compliments

  • Reflection in the mirror

  • Weight on the scale

  • Salary

  • Job title etc...

  • The car/purse/jeans/vacation

And when they don't (because they CAN'T!), we end up disappointed and confused.​

Relying on things outside of yourself to magically bring you happiness NEVER works. ​

Happiness comes from within.

So too does sadness, loneliness and fear.

We create ALL of these feelings with our thoughts.

* Good thoughts = Good feelings

* Unhelpful thoughts = Not so great feelings

The good news?

You are in control of your thoughts!

You get to choose what to think and therefore how you feel.

Choose it on purpose, with intention.


Start a journaling practice.

Start it TODAY. I'm serious.

It is the single most effective fast-track to figuring out what's going on in your brain. You will be shocked at what you find in there.

Which is great, because then you can deal with it and move forward from a place of awareness, deep understanding and clear insight.


1. Study your thoughts - learn which make you feel good, which don't

2. Continuously remind your brain to choose the ones that do.

Let me know how it goes!
