Be Happy By Finding Your Confidence And Purpose

The depth of the heart depends on the horizon of our mind. By cultivating our empowering emotions - like playfulness, curiosity, joy, confidence, and courage - we can reach the depths of our needs as human beings. Being on the path of our purpose in life means focusing all our intentions and ingenuity on its fulfilment. Finding our life meaning makes us happier and more confident. When emotional intelligence glows, we become ready for challenges bigger than ourselves.

Be Happy By Connecting With People And Nature

There is no wonder that our personal happiness depends on our health and our health depends on the health of the natural environment. Daily connections with people who share similar values significantly increase our happiness. We also get emotional and spiritual satisfaction through our sense of belonging to the biosphere. Our selfish struggle morphs into selfless abundance. We think beyond what we used to believe.

Be Happy By Creating Something Useful

Through the spirit of creating something beneficial for people's well-being, we are also getting proof of our own authentic participation in the wonder of life. Being creative and valuable is the key to a happy life. As we become more self-aware and learn how to love ourselves and be self-confident - we discover our unique life path. Then we feel as we have chosen our own GREEN PATH that embraces our ART.

The Journey to Happiness: How to Cultivate Joy and Fulfillment in Your Life

Happiness is a state of mind we all strive for, but it can sometimes feel elusive and out of reach. But the truth is, happiness is within our grasp, and it is up to us to cultivate it in our lives.

So how do you become happy? It all starts with making a conscious choice to prioritize happiness. This means taking actions that support your well-being and bring joy to your days.

One of the best things you can do to be happy is to focus on the present moment. This means letting go of worries about the past and fears about the future. And instead, concentrate on what is happening right now. Take time each day to be mindful and present, and appreciate life's simple pleasures.

Another key to happiness is to cultivate gratitude. This means taking time to appreciate the good things in your life, no matter how small they may seem. Keep a gratitude journal, and write down a few things you are grateful for each day. This can help shift your focus to the positive aspects of your life and increase your overall happiness.

In addition to mindfulness and gratitude, taking care of your physical and mental well-being is crucial for happiness. This means regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and engaging in activities that bring joy and relaxation. It also means seeking help if you are struggling with mental health issues, being open to trying new things, and expanding your horizons.

By taking these steps, you can cultivate happiness in your life. It may not happen overnight, but with time and effort, you can learn to be happy, no matter what life may bring your way. So, take the first step today and start your journey toward happiness. You deserve to be happy, and you can make it happen with the right mindset and actions.

Art Of Green Path, with its many resources, helps you to find and reinvent yourself. Your Self Discovery Guide inspires you on crucial topics and what you can do, and LIGHT is a guided journey where you actively understand what you want and create your goals and your written plan for growth.

And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

Edward J. Stieglitz

Discovering Purpose: The Key to Long-Term Happiness

Long-term happiness is about 15% pleasure and 85% purpose. When we chase pleasure by passively consuming things, we are diminishing our strengths, building our addictions, and lowering our happiness with life. When we pursue something meaningful that is also out of our comfort zone, we are developing our strengths, visualizing our goals, and growing our happiness with life - all three at the same time.

Life should be happy. The more we choose health - in all its forms (food, movement, sleep, meditation, nature) - the more we can reach joy (through curiosity, relationships, community, generosity, creation). Health and joy are prerequisites for happiness.

Do you see the world going crazy? Do you want to be different?

Our authentic awareness makes unconventional life possible. When you know how you want to feel, you can create conditions for such desired feelings. First, you stop doing what everybody else is doing. Second, you choose to change your mindset, diet, behaviors, relationship, job, goals, or impact. Third, you focus your energy on creations that move you toward your desired future. Away from the widespread mess of confusion, imitation, and addiction - forced on all of us. A healthy body and a healthy mind are prerequisites for life satisfaction

Remember, your happiness grows when you choose your authentic challenges.

Being happy is a crucial step on your path to understanding yourself.

Your Choices To Feel Happy And Share Happiness

Life Is Boundless Creative Adventure If We Dare To Be

These actions inspire you to move out of your comfort zone, surprise yourself and share the beauty of life with the good people you need. Art Of Green Path LIGHT is your journey full of personal discoveries.

CHALLENGE: How To Be Happy

Please read the following choices and think about how you could practice some of them in your daily situations.

Art Of Green Path - Simply Happy

Research About Happiness 

"Austrian graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister is doing well. He lives in New York, the city of his dreams, and he has success in his work, designing album covers for the Rolling Stones, Jay-Z and the Talking Heads. But in the back of his mind he suspects there must be something more. He decides to turn himself into a design project. Can he redesign his personality to become a better person? Is it possible to train his mind to get happier? He pursues 3 controlled experiments of meditation, therapy, and drugs, grading himself along the way. But real life creeps in and confounds the process: art, sex, love, and death prove impossible to disentangle. His unique designs and painfully personal experiences mark a journey that travels closer to himself than ever intended."

The Happy Film by Stefan Sagmeister and Ben Nabors

I highly recommend The Happy Film as one of the best personal projects on happiness, visually stunning, psychologically profound and thrillingly rewarding. Definitely worth buying and watching more than once.

Stefan took a very personal, creative and bold approach to the pursuit of happiness. Using his artistic sensibility with scientific research he let experiments take him further than he thought.

If you like art, wit, psychology, honesty, music, minimalism, design and self-analysis - you will love this beautiful, thoughtful and human movie. It will make you happier, and inspire you to find more happiness in your life.

CAN WE BE CONSTANTLY HAPPY?
I do think it is impossible to reach permanent happiness. Daniel Nettle thinks of happiness as a carrot on a stick, a compass designed by evolution to show the way. It is designed so that we never permanently find it. If we would, we would likely sit around and eat sweet and fatty foods all day which is not in the interest of evolution. A compass that points always to the north is not useful.

HOW HAS THE PROJECT CHANGED YOU?
Originally, I wanted to find an answer to the question if it is possible to train my own mind in the same way it is possible to train my body. Can I – through various techniques that will include acts of meditation, cognitive therapy and drugs – increase my overall level of happiness? It turned out that these main strategies are of only limited effectiveness, and that it really is more about creating an environment that touches on my relationships, work and something that’s bigger than myself where happiness can develop out from in between. Working on the film allowed me to think about the bigger picture properly and more frequently.

DO YOU THINK THAT HAPPINESS IS NECESSARY TO BE CREATIVE? OR, INSTEAD, THE ‘BAD LIFE’ OF SOME ARTISTS IS AN INGREDIENT THAT INCREASES CREATIVE POSSIBILITIES?
I myself do much, much better when I’m in good shape. I am also more useful to other people. When I am not doing well, I create nothing. Sometimes it’s possible to look back and make a piece about the time when I did not do well, but during the period itself, my productivity and creativity are very low.

You can find more of these questions and answers here, which I think is a great addition to the great movie.

Your openness and honesty amazed me. I strive to live an honest life, with myself and with others. I think, in general, I succeed more often than I fail. Lately I've been failing more. But seeing your journey reinvigorated me.

How Not To Feel Empty In Our Anxious And Troubled Times

Scientific studies revealed that having a meaningful challenge gives us a more prolonged feeling of happiness, much more than passive entertainment and pleasure indulgence. Despite all benefits, obviously, the majority of people instead choose deficient escapes to feel good. As a consequence, the world is ruled by consumption and debt. It seems people are not smart to be free.

Do you feel something is missing in your life?
Are you feeling empty in spite of all life potential?
Can you recognize causes for your unhappy life?
What is your meaningful challenge?

But what are the right challenges? Where to find them? How to have the confidence to deal with them? How are difficulties connected with each other and with your life? Even more puzzling, how to find solutions not just to one of them, but to all of them? How to build your strengths to create something different? Even more challenging, how to create something healthy in every sense? All lights up with the question: what is my meaningful challenge?

The key elements here are awareness, motivation, and creation. Being aware of the right challenge, we have to understand ourselves actively. Second, to taste it, we have to feel curious and confident. The decisive step is to create something new and meaningful. In other words, finding yourself is a transformative journey that grows our happiness from within. Only understanding can beat ignorance. Above all, we find meaning when we improve our life or the lives of others.

Life is unlimited. Can curiosity lead you to the challenges that will bring you happiness?

Why Selfless Help Lifts People And Protects Nature?

1. Help is giving generous assistance or support to someone who needs it or asks for it or even to nature and its creatures who can not talk.

2. It offers aid, guidance, time, money or resources to someone struggling or in need. It can be a way of showing our gratitude and love to people who need it or deserve it.

3. Help can take many forms, such as offering advice, lending a hand, listening, solving a problem, providing financial support or inspiring the way forward.

4. It is equally vital for those who give help and do something good, as they can feel valuable, worthy, needed, happy and joyful.

5. Help is best when its source is generosity, kindness, selflessness and compassion. Sometimes it is better to give time and focus than money.
