Starting Increased happiness counseling

What is Increased happiness counseling?

Increased happiness counseling from our Thriveworks therapists in Johnson City, TN guides clients in cultivating gratitude, resilience, and a deeper understanding of their own values and goals. The aim of increased happiness counseling is to empower individuals to lead happier and more fulfilling lives by promoting a greater sense of personal satisfaction and emotional equilibrium.

How does Increased happiness counseling work?

Therapists who specialize in increased happiness counseling can utilize a diverse array of methods, such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies, mindfulness exercises, and the principles of positive psychology, to assist you in nurturing qualities like gratitude, resilience, and a deeper comprehension of your values and aspirations. The primary objective of increased happiness counseling is to empower you to live a more joyful and satisfying life, fostering an enhanced sense of personal contentment and emotional balance.

Counseling and Therapy in Johnson City, TN for Increased Happiness Help

The reality is that people can adjust their happiness. There are no magic formulas or easy fixes. No one can follow three simple steps and then suddenly experience happiness. Instead, happiness is like a muscle. Everyone has a base level of strength, just as they have a base level of happiness. With time and exercise, anyone can become physically stronger. Similarly, with time and the right mindset, anyone can become happier.

If people can learn to be happier, how do they distinguish between habits that cultivate happiness and pointless clickbait? Many people are turning to counseling to help increase their happiness. A happy life is within reach, and Thriveworks Johnson City has helped many clients learn how to cultivate happiness from within themselves.

What Hinders Happiness?

There is no doubt, other people and outside circumstances affect people’s happiness, but they are not the only factors. In many cases, people cannot control their circumstances or other people, but there are many things within their control that affect their happiness.

The first step toward happiness may be identifying ways people hinder their own happiness. There are many ways people undercut their own joy, but a few may include…

  • Giving away Control: Happy people do not think, when X occurs, then I will be happy. They do not allow other people or circumstances to control how they feel. Happy people learn happiness despite circumstances.
  • Comparison: Looking around to see what other people are doing is a recipe for animosity, not joy. Happy people accept their life on its own merits.
  • Entitlement: Happy people are often proactive, not passive. When people wait around for happiness to show up, they will be waiting a long time.
  • Blame: Criticizing people instead of tackling problems means that problems rarely get solved. Instead, they may grow and choke out happiness.

Boosting Happiness

While people may need to cut out habits that hinder their joy, the most important part of boosting happiness is cultivating new habits. When people can draw joy from within, life’s circumstances may knock them down, but they will have the resiliency to regain happiness.

Often, little, everyday habits can may a big difference in boosting happiness. For example,

  • Practicing mindfulness – Become alert to the here and now. Take note of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations.
  • Promoting thankfulness – Gratitude looks for what is going right and chooses to focus upon the good.
  • Changing one’s mindset – Happiness often requires new growth and a willingness to accept new skills, knowledge, feelings, habits, and more.
  • Setting a goal – Be grateful for the past, be present in the here and now, but also anticipate the future. Set realistic and achievable goals.

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
