Meer geluk in je leven? Doe de challenge!

Challenge #1: Fotomoment Geluk

Vandaag deel ik een van mijn favoriete oefening om je dagelijkse geluk te vergroten.

Vaak raken we verstrikt in de lelijkheid van het leven. Als je bijvoorbeeld uitgeput bent geraakt door een ruzie met een vriend of geliefde. Of je hebt het nieuws gelezen of ingelogd op sociale media. Of je hebt een lastig gesprek met vrienden gehad waarbij jullie van mening verschilden. Al deze situaties kunnen je energie uitputten en je gedachten negatief laten worden.

Maar daar kun je iets tegen doen!

Are-you-high-sensitive-and-looking-for-elegant-ways-to-de-stress-your-life?Read-this-article,-find-out-about-simple-adaptations-and-share-your-own!Survival secrets for a relaxed and fulfilling life

I’ve written about being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) on this blog for a year and a half now, and each time I’m surprised and grateful for the genuine interest with which people contact me about HSP. The massive interests in HSP at the most unexpected places – the supermarket, school of my children – my sport studio! – is an enormous motivation for me to carry on spreading the word; Yes, as a HSP you might see and sense things around you – and within you – differently, but please, by all means: carry on doing so! We need every sensitive and aware person we can get to help making this world a more innovative, creative and peaceful place.

Some of these trait combinations can set either ‘group’ apart from society. Particularly specific combinations of traits than lead to, for example, ‘awkward’ social situations or psychic abilities can be challenging for gifted or sensitive people.

During the research for my book about High Sensitivity (hopefully out in October), I discovered that the characteristics of (high) sensitivity and gifted people can overlap. Both are sensitive, feel emotions intensely, have a high level of consciousness and are creative thinkers and doers. You can find 4 astonishing similarities in the next blog article (online on May 24th), but for now I will focus on similarities between (high)sensitives and (highly) gifted people when it comes to happiness.
