Steps on Being Joyful in the Present Moment

Below are the three direct steps on how to find more joy in the present moment. Keep in mind that true joy can only come from within. As you see that joy is only found from within, you can begin to see why joy is a lot easier to find in the present moment awareness.

Step 1

Develop gratitude. To get into this state of mind, pick something right now that you haven’t really noticed before. Focus your attention on that one thing. As you begin to focus your attention on that one thing, feel a deep sense of wonder and awe. Be grateful for it being there. That feeling alone will give you momentum.

Step 2

You don’t need any reason to be happy. Just because you see many people striving for something to be happy about, doesn’t mean you have to. Realize this truth, there is no validation need for you to be happy. You can choose to be happy for no reason at all, this is a big secret that many have a hard time grasping, but if you understand the essence of it, you are well on your way.

Step 3

Send happiness to others now. The moment you send this out to others is the exact moment you realize, that what you give out is what you get back. Whatever you feel is lacking, in this case happiness, send it to someone. Make someone laugh or send happy thoughts to someone. This will put you in the position you choose.
