Here’s a little teabag wisdom to get your day going.
“Mental happiness is total relaxation.”
Now, this is good. What does it mean to be mentally happy? No worries. No arguments or judgments about yourself or others. No anxiety about the past or the future. No negative emotions. But instead of defining mental happiness in terms of what it is not, let’s define it in a positive way.
Mental happiness is waking up from a good night’s sleep. It’s gazing at a sleeping newborn. It’s sitting alone by the ocean listening to the waves roll in. It’s enjoying the magnificence of a sunrise or sunset. It’s smelling the clean air surrounded by pine trees in the mountains. It’s taking a few minutes out of each day to be silent and marvel at the wonders of the universe. It’s being grateful for everything you have in your life.
I’m sure the list is endless and different for everyone. What does mental happiness mean to you?
