Happiness is a state

Happiness is a state that is lived, therefore we must stop looking outside as if it were a good that we can buy or acquire, happiness is in accepting what and who we are, where we live and everything we have.

Next Thursday, July 30, 2020 on Radio Promocion XXI in the program "medicine for all" at 4:00 p.m. Spanish time and at 11:00 a.m. Argentina time I will talk about "HAPPINESS".
Emotions are the rudder that guides our lives.
la felicidad se vive

Our day to day is full of setbacks that we have to deal with, slight problems that we usually solve immediately, those that worry are the conflicts that take us days to find the solution and that affects our mood, our way of relating to others, our sleep even our way of feeding ourselves.

Did you know that your mind generates more than 90,000 thoughts in one day alone?

If most are negative, imagine what this means for your nervous system.

Negative thoughts are translated by the nervous system as threat, puts the body in fight or flight mode and causes us to live in continuous stress.

By maintaining all the time the mode protection and threat in the nervous system increases blood pressure, the heart accelerates and circulation is affected, cortisol takes control in your body, the immune system falls and the cells can not regenerate as they are in constant tension.

How to deal with daily conflicts.

  • Trying to find a way to simplify problems and stay in the present, worry about future events, live in fear and anxiety, if you are not sure that the problem will appear generates unjustified stress.
  • It is easier for the mind to repeat over and over again the reason for being than to put the mind to work to accept the conflict and try to find a solution.
  • You may like to have everything under control, and everything beyond your control causes you suffering, learns to delegate and trust others.
  • Many times we have a tendency to those ruminant thoughts that we go round and round without advancing and that leads us to mental exhaustion, try to tackle the problem with a simple question;
  • Can I do anything to fix it? If so, do it!
  • If it's not up to you to fix it, stop worrying.
  • It also works to ask yourself if that problem you have now will matter in a few days, a week, a few months or a few years, almost always the answer is Nothing. This way it is easier to make a decision.
  • If we do not find the simple way to solve all the conflicts that are presented to us day by day, we will live chained to our mind that usually plays in the zone of negative emotions.
  • We must be aware that what we think actively affects the body and health, being in stress mode all day, for a long time generates diseases as serious as cancer

How to find happiness

What can I do to be happy?

The word "happiness" is related to a continuous search, the search for the magical secret that makes us happy.

Nor the technological advances, latest generation mobiles, medium economic level, being able to buy all the whims that we want, plasma televisions, thousands of entertainment channels, going out to dinner often, the fridge overflowing ...

Why doesn't all this give happiness?

It can be said that before with less people were happier, perhaps because they did not associate happiness with material things like today, they had cultural and spiritual resources to reach the desired state of happiness, practically this model of life has disappeared, although we can find some lost tribes that maintain this philosophy of life.

We take as an example a tribe of the Amazon in Venezuela, near the Orinoco River, a town called Piaroa. This town is not contaminated by modern civilization, it could be said that its happiness overflows everywhere.

The Piaroa, live in the middle of the jungle, without electricity, running water, hospitals, shopping centers, internet, they have no government, no one is more than anyone, everything is everyone's and is respected. Children are never punished physically, but they are made to compensate with actions for the damage they have done, they do not encourage the feeling of ownership, or competition, the elders teach the children, each of them is treated as an important being and who is part of a group but at the same time they feel free.

They celebrate, dance and sing the same when a child is born as when an old man or an adult dies, when it rains or for rain, when there is hunting or for there to be.

They do not suffer stress, neither heart nor insomnia and the most important thing is that they are always in family.

Does being happy happen by going to live with a tribe?

There is no need to renounce modernisms, you do not have to isolate yourself and look for a lost tribe to recover happiness, you have to put common sense and stop thinking that happiness is in what you want to achieve, get or buy.

Happiness is carried inside and everything happens to appreciate what you have instead of desiring what others have, accepting how we are and stop comparing ourselves with the most handsome or beautiful, as it creates frustration.

Steps to follow to achieve happiness:

  • First: Try to socialize more, but not through social networks, meet that friend or friend you have not seen for months, organize a coffee with your acquaintances, with the family.
    People who consider themselves happy say that they spend a lot of time with their friends and family, it takes them away from stress and often serves as therapy to talk about things of the day to day that worry us and we do not talk about them when we do not find the right time.
  • Second: Leaving the egocentrism and thinking a little about others, we often seek to buy some whim, make a trip, eat in a good restaurant to fill a need to love ourselves.
    But the happiest people say they feel fuller when what they seek, buy and organize, they do thinking about the surprise they will give to the other.
  • Third: Practicing good deeds with others can bring us three times as much happiness as if we only think about ourselves.
    The key to true happiness is in helping others
    Science assures us that giving away our time in favor of a charity with those most in need gives us a high of happiness.
  • Fourth:Thank everything you have no matter how little, dedicate a moment of the day to appreciate everything you have, it is a positive therapy to neutralize the ego.
    Don't you feel lucky to have the fridge full of food, clothes to choose from, hot water to shower, water to drink?

We recommend a video in which a boy goes down the street giving money among the homeless, imagine that you are the one who does that good deed, it makes your heart vibrate.
