How Attitude Relates to Happiness

How Attitude Relates to Happiness

Being pleasant and having a good attitude is a simple way to become happier in life.
Opportunities come through people, and people are more likely to bring opportunities to people they like.

Attitude relates to happiness in many ways and this blog is all about the reasons it is never a bad ideas to improve ours.

*A positive attitude invites feelings of eager anticipation rather than worry.
*A relaxed attitude can calm the nerves of others which in turn relaxes tension.
*A caring attitude promotes kindness and can make people feel cared for, protected and safe.

Your own attitude not only affects those around you but it gives back. Can you see any disadvantages of having good attitude so far?!

On the flip side, we are all capable of displaying poor attitudes and sometimes this is an error we fail to notice. The problem with that,is the results are negative, and leave us wondering why.

An example would be an overconfident attitude which may be perceived as arrogant, when in fact it is compensating for the complete opposite. Not many arrogant people are popular!
Another example would be a negative attitude. This can dampen an atmosphere, create worry rather than dissipate it.

As humans we often feed off other people’s attitudes and copy them. It makes us feel more connected to the herd. Natural, but do you want to be the one spreading that negativity?

Great attitudes are infectious. Get it right and you can spread positivity, confidence, and happiness. In return you get the sort of feedback from life that most of us strive for. People like us! They want to spend time with us. We are needed.

I sometimes listen to people with a negative attitude telling a story about something that has happened in the world, or to someone. The purpose seems to be to get others to share in the negative attitude maybe to lighten the load or maybe to feel supported in a group feeling of negativity?
It baffles me. In this situation I have learned that trying to find the positives can sound contradictive or even dismissive.
We all like a dramatic story, and there is nothing wrong with sharing it. We love being the first to know something, that’s human nature. The way we share it sometimes needs more thought, otherwise the result can be a negative one.

Take a moment to think about what type of attitude you display most frequently. Then ask yourself if it has had an affect on your life. Our attitudes can change day to day but we all have a default. Does yours need some adjustment for a happier life?

About the Author

I have been involved in fitness all my life but never been hugely competitive. Entering the world of fitness instructor, personal trainer and nutrition advisor, I leant how simple it is to stay in shape without becoming a gym fanatic or elite athlete. I am neither, by the way!

So after 17 years of managing the swimming school and taking rowing classes at Newton Abbot Leisure Centre, I decided it was time to do something that would give me a different type of job satisfaction. Offering a service that directly influences someone’s wellbeing, seemed a good choice.

So, I studied the mechanics of exercise versus body shape and began to understand why so many people who have exercise routines that sometimes seem excessive, never see the changes they are hoping for. This led me to I set up Tessfit which tackles this conundrum. It is a real mix and match offering between nutrition and weight management advice, fitness classes and personal training. A combination which is proving to be highly successful for everyone involved.

I now work from home and run my classes and indoor Personal Training sessions at Venture Fitness in Newton Abbot. It is a great balance and not only do I love my work, I also get to spend more time with my family which is invaluable.​.
