Over the past few weeks we have been asking what the key to our happiness really is and whether changing parts of your life can lead to a happier future. There are many factors that can get us down and prevent us from enjoying a fulfilled life, from work and money issues to appearance and relationships, but do all these things really matter when we put them into perspective? Everyone is striving to change aspects of their life for happiness but are they missing the point? At Psychic Light we believe that life is for living and we can help you realise this. Many of the surveys we looked at in the last few posts suggested that the majority of us aren’t happy with our work/life balance, the way we look or our financial status. Making small changes to your life may make a short term difference however the real key to long term happiness lies in you. We are all unique and the things that make us truly happy may differ from person to person. ‘Having it all’ may seem like the most important thing sometimes; however it is very possible to be satisfied with the simple things in life. Whether it is a strong family unit, security or just being content in your own skin, there are many things that we should be more thankful for but often overlook. Talking to one of our psychic readers can help you to appreciate these things and can help you to see things more clearly, giving you an understanding of what makes you happiest. Some of us may look at others lives and feel the need to compare them, leading us to feel envious and resentful. However, whether its material possessions or someone’s appearance it can be dangerous to covet what others have and we can often end up wishing our lives away. Always striving for more can lead to disappointment and frustration. Remember that the grass isn’t always greener, and focusing on the things that you do have can help you to be able to look at your life and feel content. It has been shown in a study that people who prioritised family goals rather than focusing on material or career success were happier, so worrying about things that don’t really matter will not bring you the same amount of life satisfaction as concentrating on children, parents or your partner. Added factors that affected participant’s happiness included things like regular exercise, a healthy social life, and a focus on selfless goals. Seeking material success may be the key to temporary happiness; however lifelong contentment comes from concentrating on the things that really matter in life. Many of our psychics are also trained counsellors with years of professional experience, so you will be in safe hands when talking through your worries. So why not give us a call and see how you could improve your outlook on life and if you aren’t feeling so positive you may find that talking to one of our readers gives you the support you need in order to go on and live a happier life.
