How To Be More joyful In Your Life

Do You Want To Be More joyful In Your Life?

Are you wondering ways you can feel a lot more joyful in your own life?

I’m pretty sure that most people or everybody wants to be more joyful in their life.

Some people feel joy and happiness most of the time and some or most people, in my opinion, feel sad or down most of the time and are searching for how to be more happy and joyful in their life.

Though you can’t feel happiness and joy 100% of the time.

You will have ups and downs but it is possible to feel joy and happiness most of the time.

So in this blog, I’m going to talk about 5 things that you can do to be more joyful in your life.

1. Cut Out People That Don’t Serve You

Hanging out with people that don’t serve you will make you more unhappy and less joyful in your life.

So to live a more joyful life, you have to cut out people that don’t serve you anymore.

I know that it can be hard because some of those people might be old friends or family members.

I had to let go of most of my old friends because they were talking behind my back.

It was very difficult to cut out them from my life (because we were friends for a long time).

Ever since I did, I felt freer and more joyful than I ever have been.

2. Eat More Healthy

There is a saying that you are what you eat, and the harsh reality is that it is very true.

If you eat a lot of junk food then a big surprise you’re going to feel like junk most of the time.

But when you eat healthy food then you will feel good most of the time.

This does necessarily mean you have to completely change your diet in an instant(unless you want to).

You can eat a little more healthy over time and eventually down the road you will eat completely healthy.

You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian instantly either(unless you want to of course).

3. Stop Relying On Things From The Outside

What I mean by this is that you need to stop relying on things outside of yourself to feel joy.

A lot of people sadly do this a lot, sometimes without even being conscious that they are doing it..

They need to realize that they don’t need things on the outside to feel joy, they can feel joy right now and finding joy within yourself.

What I found out is that when you do rely on stuff from the outside to make you feel joy, you will feel miserable most of the time.

Even If you get the thing that you said will make you more joyful, you will only feel joy for a little and then you will go back to what you were feeling before.

It is really important to stop relying on outside things to make you joy.

Instead, decide to feel joy right now in this very moment.

When you find the joy within yourself, you will feel more joy than you ever had and it will last a lot longer too.

4. Get Rid of Your Inner Critic

Having the inner critic in your head will make you very miserable.

It makes you feel like you can’t do anything.

There are multiple ways you can do to get rid of the inner critic.

One of them is to simply ignore your inner critic.

It will be hard to do especially If you listen to your inner critic often, but it can be done.

Another way to get rid of your inner critic is to be aware of your thoughts.

When you are aware of your thoughts, you can see what you are thinking and recognize that you are not your thoughts.

When you do get rid of your inner critic, you will notice that you will overall feel more joy.

Not only that, but you will also have an easier time trying new things and getting out of your comfort zone because your inner critic is not in the way.

5. Gratitude

Sadly, a lot of people don’t practice gratitude at all.

I see that a lot of people take things for granted and I used to take things for granted as well until I started to practice gratitude.

I started to practice gratitude about around June 2019.

Some time passed and I noticed that I was more naturally grateful for the things that I have and I could come up with things that I was grateful for more easily than I did before.

Don’t expect that you only have to practice it once and then you are good for the rest of your life.

You have to make it a daily routine.

I would recommend you to write down at least 5 things that you are grateful for in your life.

Over time, you can write down more than 5 things that you are grateful for.

It doesn’t matter how you do it, it’s just important that you practice gratitude.

You will notice after some time that you will be more joyful and happy.

A lot of people want to feel joyful in their life.

I can say that If you do nothing and or you don’t work on yourself, you will continue to be miserable and it will still be hard for you to feel joy.

I used to struggle to feel joy in the past, I still sometimes do but I did most of the things that I mentioned in this blog and it has helped me to feel more joyful in life more often than before.

If you take action and implement any of the things that I mentioned in the post, then you will notice that you are feeling more and more joyful in your life.

I will reply to you as soon as I can.

That’s all I have in this blog, I hope that all of you have a wonderful day, peace.

  1. It’s very special to cut people who don’t really serve you. Yes, I just did it. Life is sometimes like this, and it takes courage and wisdom.

    • Thanks for commenting! It does take courage and wisdom to cut people off that don’t really serve you. It is even tougher if you’ve been around them for a while. Though it is really worth it in the end.

  2. Great advice. The ‘not relying on things from the outside’ is so important for all of us. If we are always looking for something outside of us to make us happy, we are at the mercy of other people and events that we have no control over. True and lasting happiness has to come from within. It is our thoughts that lead to how we are feeling and this leads to our emotional state of being. So, if we are not feeling happy, we can become aware of our thoughts and we will realize that our thinking is not supporting feelings of happiness. Therefore, we can change our thoughts once we realize this to make us happy. Really, the choice is ours.
    Gratitude for all that we have and appreciation for all that is in our lives is a great way to generate feelings of happiness.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love how inspiring this post is! I am definitely my own worst critic. I used to struggle so hard seeing the good in myself. I’ve gotten better and can see a happier me. And when I eat crappy I totally feel crappy. Lately especially. I’ve totally been the person to cut people off when they no longer were being a positive thing in my life. I never realized that was a way to be more joyful.

    • I’m glad that you’ve gotten better at it. I was very critical on myself as well and I never really felt like I was doing enough. Though I got a lot better at it and now I feel more happy and joyful. I am glad that you found the post inspiring.
