Find happiness within yourselfIf you were to pause and ask yourself, “how happy do I feel with my life?” how would you respond? It took me years to start uncovering the key to true happiness. I used to believe I would find it once I lost that final few pounds or if I bought that cute outfit; anyone with me?! The problem is, all of those things are found outside of ourselves therefore the happiness is fleeting. To find lasting joy you need to learn how to find happiness within yourself. Once I discovered that, I was able to carry peace within myself whatever I was going through. I want continue on the path of true happiness through the second half of life. And I want that for you too! I’m excited to introduce you to Monique Rhodes, Happiness Strategist and my podcast guest for today! When you’re in her presence, you realize you’re in front of a person who actually walks the talk. She’s calm, cool and collected and has a natural ease and infectiously positive outlook on the world. Life’s not been easy (and she shares some of her story in this episode) but Monique has found a way to turn it around and create a life most people would call extraordinary. She’s truly an expert on how to live a happier life. In our conversation, Monique talks about the fascinating reality that meditation can actually CHANGE the structure of our brain, the truth on acknowledging our negative emotions and practical steps we can take to find happiness within. If you’re someone who thinks they can’t meditate, I highly recommend you check out Monique’s 10 Minute Mind.
This second half of life can be happier than ever before, no matter what the circumstances!
