How to achieve long term happiness

How to achieve long term happiness

What exactly is happiness, and more importantly- how can it be achieved?

In this article, not only will we answer both questions, but I'm also giving you access to free exercises that will have a significant impact on your happiness levels.

To answer both questions, we first need to dig into what brought you here.

If you’re anything like I was, your life probably looks something like this:

You wake up with the tasks of the day flooding into your mind.

The mornings are mostly a blur of activity with little or no time to enjoy a few moments with your family.

At work you might be irritable, and impatient. Or you might feel less creative, less outgoing and less fun than you had been in the past.

When you come home from work, you find it difficult to unwind and so you’re not giving your family the time they need and deserve.

You probably have children whom you adore.

If you're lucky, you have a partner whom you love but don't get to spend enough time with.

You more than likely have good friends but you don’t get to see them as often as you like.

Your life isn’t perfect- nobody’s is.

But on balance, you have a lot of good in your life and yet you’re feeling unhappy and unfulfilled.


A lot of this has to do with how busy you are.

Between work and family, you’re stretched and stressed. You never have a moment to yourself, and it seems that you have very little control over your time.

You might also feel guilty because you don’t get to spend much quality time with your family and friends.

And you also feel that life is bypassing you, that you’ll never get the chance to follow your passions, to do things you've always wanted to do.

I understand- I’ve been there.

That’s why I developed Lite Mind, a breakthrough technique that helps you develop long term happiness.

I’m going to share this technique with you right now and also give you free Lite Mind exercises.

The first element of the Lite Mind technique is the answer to the question- what is happiness?

In the words of the French moralist François de La Rochefoucauld “Happiness does not consist in things themselves but in the relish we have for them.”

Yeah, I know, that’s a great sound bite but how does it translate into something that you can actually do right now?

Here’s how: By taking a few minutes to simply reflect on the good you have in your life, then absorbing the feelings you get from this exercise, and by doing this regularly, you train your brain to naturally tune into the good in your life.

This simple exercise has a dramatic and positive impact on your everyday happiness.

Anecdotally, we know this technique to be highly effective.

For example, have you ever wondered why people with faith seem to be happier?

And I’m not talking about the intolerant, judgemental, closed-minded, type of religious person. I’m talking about good people with faith who try to lead a good life.

For most of my life I thought their faith alone made them happier. And while faith undoubtedly plays a part, the act of prayer has a huge impact on their happiness.

Through prayer, they thank their God for the food on their table, for the people in their lives, for their job, their house, their health and so on.

It’s this heartfelt appreciation and recognition of all the good you have in your life that contributes significantly to how happy you feel.

And research in the field of neuroscience over the last 20 years proves that there is a direct link between taking in the good and happiness.

As the fantastic neuroscientist Risk Hanson shows in his book “Hardwiring Happiness”, by thinking about the good in our lives or even creating good thoughts, and holding onto these good thoughts, absorbing them for 20 or so seconds, and doing this regularly, brain scans show that these good thoughts get converted into neural structure.

In short, these positive memories activate positive emotions.

And the more you do this, the more your brain will change.

It’s called experience-dependent neuroplasticity.

One of the main elements of the Lite Mind technique are short morning and evening exercises that you listen to.

In each session I prompt you to bring to mind something good from your life and to absorb the good feelings.

These exercises make you happier.

And when you’re happy, you’re not stressed. When you’re happy you're more present, you engage with people.

When you’re happy, you’re more creative, more energetic.

In short, when you’re happy, everything is better.

Appreciating and taking the time to appreciate what you have in your life is a very important element to achieving long term happiness but a second, vital ingredient is also required.

The additional ingredient to achieving long term happiness is to add purpose to your life.

And I know, you might be thinking, how am I going to do that and where am I going to find the time- you’re stretched and stressed as it is- your life is too busy.

Lite Mind shows you how to take control of your life.

When you learn the Lite Mind technique and put it into practice, not only will you add purpose to your life, but you’ll find that you actually have more time than ever.

So how can you add purpose to your life?

Well that’s a conversation for another day, but if you read through my blog, you'll find several posts where I discuss and show you how to add purpose to your life.
