Once upon a time I was a really sad girl.
Like most of us, I’ve been on both ends of the happiness spectrum. I used to constantly fling myself from side to side; one moment would be blissful euphoria, while another moment felt like deep depression. Until I realized happiness is a state, and I can live in it more frequently.
When I found my way to shift out, I could easily return to that happy place with tools, systems, and practices for getting me back into my high vibe state of wonder that I call ‘wellness wonderland’.
I use all sorts of tools for this, and I now help clients and mentees do the same, as a life coach and podcast host. These happiness finders are unique for everyone, but for me they include the acts of self-care like taking a long walk outside, a hot bath, or a yoga class.
But perhaps, most unexpectedly, my strategies also include knowing which movies to watch; which podcast to listen to; which TV show episode feels like my security blanket; which book makes me feel less alone, and so on.
Like I said, these happiness shifters are powerful yet unique for all of us. I like to help people curate their own, and if you want to see some of mine here’s a list of my absolute favorite things that inspire me, and my latest video on How to Be Happy.
Katie is a speaker, life coach, author and blogger. She loves writing and speaking about holistic wellness, personal development & spirituality on her blog, her weekly Podcast WWRadio, and in her daily life. She works with women who believe happiness isn’t dependent on their physical body, relationship status, or career. Instead, they realize that it is actually within them, and that external trappings of success are merely a byproduct of their internal state. She helps women develop a positive relationship with food and their body image by embracing a spiritual connection of their own understanding. Get her free Quick Start Guide here.
