[PART 2] 7 Things That Happy People Don’t Do + FREEBIE

Continuing on from last week, today we’re looking at four more things that happy people do and don’t do. If you missed part one, you can read it here.

You might be thinking, “But, Jess, you’ve already gone over three points already. What more could there be?”

Well, so far we’ve covered:

  1. They don’t well on the past
  2. They focus on the here and now
  3. The recharge

Well, you’d be surprised how much of a difference there is between people who are sad, and those who are happy. As always, Google brings up tonnes of results on this very topic. But here are some more important points to help you on your quest to becoming a happier person.

[PART 1] 7 Things That Happy People Don’t Do + FREEBIE

What’s the deal with happy people? How do they just seem to be so happy? What do they have that we haven’t got? Here are some of my best tips in helping you achieve happiness (despite anxiety).

Now, I’m not proclaiming that I am happy ALL of the time. No one can be happy all of the time. sadness, anger, frustration, etc. are all valid emotions that we should feel as a human. Unfortunately, those feelings are part of daily life and if you don’t feel these emotions, you’re probably a lamp post. Haha.

But these tips will certainly help you along the way. Anxiety and poor mental health can really bring you down (plus bring out those not-so-nice emotions we try to avoid), so these tips will surely help you.

This post today is part one (as I got to 750 words and only addressing point 1-3!) You can read the next post soon.

Let’s go!

I’m Back After a Much Needed Break!

Hi all!

Hope you’re doing okay?

I’ve had a much needed break after thrashing away at this blog and my full time job. What with the recent radio interview, I think everything had gotten on top of me a bit. But hey, I spent a lovely week in Rhodes, Greece (you can see more on my Insta page!) with my partner, and recharged.

So now that I’m back, we’ve got a broken down washing machine to sort and I’m back to work tomorrow! But I’ll still be doing the following over the coming weeks:

  • Continuing with the #IntrovertedBloggerSeries

  • Emailing my lovely email subscribers

  • More useful blog posts on coping with your anxiety

  • Following up with the Facebook Live I said I’d do (a poorly stomach and the broken down washing mac decided to put that on hold haha! Sorry guys

  • Improving and supporting those in my private Facebook community. Click below to request access now!

    Anxiety support group for mental health advice

Plus I’m sure there’ll be much more to come.

Thanks for being patient and see you as usual on Friday!

How To Be Happy Despite Your Anxiety

Unhappy right now? What actually is happiness? Why do we chase happiness and is happiness the meaning of life? Here’s some answers for you!

As a human being, I’m always looking at ways to improve my over all happiness. After all, who actually wants to be unhappy? Whether it comes to home life, work life or your hobbies there’s always room for improvement.

See, when it comes to anxiety, it can really affect your happiness, too. It decreases your self-worth, confidence and self esteem – leading to a general bleak outlook on life. We don’t what that now do we?!

Below you’ll find my best tips on being happy despite your anxiety.

It Takes Guts, Conquering Your Anxiety. Here’s How To Do It

Want to know how to conquer your anxiety? Here are some of the best tips that actually work. Forward: these aren’t easy but so worth it!

I’ve been compelled to write about this subject today following my life coaching certification and the emotions it has created in the process. My teacher showed me a vast array of information into the human psyche. I thought I knew it all, but I’ve since come to realise that, actually, I know nothing.

Pondering on anxiety and how we work, I’ve now seen how the very best of us can actually be the very worst off. Why is it that the very leaders of our country succumb to immaturity through short-sightedness and lack of understanding towards their very own people?

I guess I’ll never really understand them but at least I can say that I’m on the way to understanding myself (which in turn helps me understand you).

Do you know why? It’s because I know how anxiety affects you. Purely because anxiety affects me hugely. That’s why I wrote the title to this post – moving on from anxiety takes a huge amount of guts and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

So, this article today is going to address some pretty big elephants in the room. These so called ‘elephants’ aren’t there to make you feel uncomfortable, however. They are there to address some of your pain points, and are not to be ignored.
