With the right training, support, and guidance, anyone can prioritize their own happiness. Reach out today to schedule your first appointment.

How Does Happiness Form?

Beneficial outcome=happiness, adverse outcome=negative emotions. Often, the outcomes people base their emotional responses upon are mostly, if not completely out of their control. Thus, happiness also feels like a random, out-of-control feeling.

Without question, people and circumstances affect happiness. Without question, however, they are not the only components. There are many other factors that affect people’s happiness and that are within their control. There are habits people have that sabotage their joy. There are habits people can cultivate that promote happiness. Mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can use evidence-based therapeutic methods like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help people change their thinking and foster a happier frame of mind.

Inhibiting Happiness

All too often, people sabotage their own happiness. There are common habits that people have that can undercut the joy they experience, such as:

  • Comparison: Looking to what others have or do instead of taking life on its own merits is a recipe for superiority and/or inferiority—not happiness.
  • Entitlement: As the Declaration of Independence reminds us, happiness is to be pursued. When people passively wait for joy to show up, they will likely be waiting a long time.
  • Blame: Accusations and finger pointing do not solve problems, and unresolved issues often grow and overshadow joy.

Building Up Joy

Cutting out comparison, entitlement, and blame is a great foundation for building a happier life, but people need to upgrade from these destructive emotional patterns to constructive ones. This usually involves learning to live from within oneself—letting one’s own values, beliefs, talents, and priorities guide one’s thoughts, feelings, and actions. Therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can assist in this process of personal growth.

Often, little steps and small changes add up to a big difference in the happiness people feel. As people are learning to ground their emotional state from within themselves, they may find the following practices helpful:

  • Promoting thankfulness – Every day, take time to reflect upon what went well. Identify a few things you are grateful for. Taking time for gratitude trains people’s minds and emotions to look for what is good within their lives.
  • Practicing mindfulness – Cultivate self-awareness by allowing yourself to be in each moment. Experience each thought, feeling, or sensation without labeling them or judging them.
  • Setting a goal – Find a challenging but realistic goal to set in your personal or professional life, and then go for it.
