Sometimes you gotta find that happy place. It helps to think of a happy time in your life or a good experience that you have had that you can look back upon. Go to that happy place in your mind whenever you need to. Keep a few happy experiences that you have had in the back of your mind and look back on them whenever you want. Maybe it’s your wedding night, or maybe it’s your child’s first words, whatever it is, you can always have warm, fuzzy, happy thoughts by remembering that place and time no matter what is going on around you.
A happy place is a warm center in your person. It is somewhere deep inside where you can go to find tranquility away from the craziness of the world. Sometimes it is in your own head. Sometimes it is something external that makes us happy. What makes one person happy might make another person mad, ashamed, or upset. Think about what makes you happy, and try to do it in a way that doesn’t affect people who would rather not know.
A happy place is there, somewhere
It can also be an actual place. You could make a sanctuary in your home or garden where you can go to escape, be happy, and find peace. Music helps too. Happy songs can change your mood in a hurry. They have the power to put you in a better mood whenever you play them.
Do whatever works for you. Finding a happy place involves making a strong mental connection to the things that make you happiest. When you make these connections and find your happy place often enough, it will be easier to get there as time goes on. Sometimes we find ourselves in negative situations and we have to have hope in these types of situations. You may have to continually go back to that happy place to find peace and hope.

So if you are looking for a happy place, and maybe some inspiration, take a walk outside, find your favorite sweater, invite your friends over. Do whatever it is that makes you happy, and if you can’t find it in one place, then keep looking, it is out there. You may have to look within yourself to find what truly makes you reach your goal of staying in a happy place all of the time. It’s all about how you look at life. Don’t let feedback influence your own energy of happiness. It is totally one hundred percent all in your head whether or not you are happy. It’s all in how you think.
So, find your healthy safe happy place within or without, depending on whether or not you are introverted or extroverted. Many who are introverted find happiness within themselves. Extroverts I think can go either way.
