One simple way to live a happy and stress-free life is to pay attention to the work you are doing. Research done by Harvard psychologists shows that when you are focusing on your activities, your level of happiness increases.
It’s not what you do that makes you happy. It’s how focused you are on what you are doing. You can be in your favourite vacation spot, but lost in thoughts, and that is enough to decrease your happiness and increase your stress. You can be doing chores at home, on the other hand, and focused, and this is enough to increase your happiness and decrease your stress.
Meditation is the way to train your mind to learn to be focused. Happy and stress-free living is possible when you live with wisdom and add meditation to your daily routine.
