Jojo breaks down fivE EAsy wAys to lEAD A HAp­pIEr lIFE:

Herworld (Malaysia) - - HER STORY -

1. NEvEr Go to BED An­Gry

“This can af­fect the qual­ity of your sleep – try to re­solve what­ever was both­er­ing you be­fore you put your head down.”

2. Al­wAys HAvE GrAt­I­tuDE

“It’s such a highly pos­i­tive emo­tion, and what­ever you fo­cus on grows, so just think­ing of a per­son or sit­u­a­tion that makes you feel grate­ful will im­me­di­ately trans­port you into a pos­i­tive space.”

3. ImAG­InE A stop sIGn

“When­ever you feel anger or panic, try to pic­ture a red light and just say ‘STOP’ in your mind. In­hale for seven counts and ex­hale for 11 counts to drain out ten­sion and anger. When you lengthen your ex­hale, it helps re­move more car­bon diox­ide and tox­ins, and it also forces your heart to slow down.”

4. Don’t plAy tHE vIC­tIm

The most mis­er­able peo­ple in the world never take re­spon­si­bil­ity; they play the ‘vic­tim’ and al­ways think it’s some­one else’s fault. This keeps them for­ever feel­ing ‘small’ and ‘hope­less’. Take con­trol of your own path – be re­spon­si­ble for your feel­ings!"

5. Don’t CHECk your mo­BIlE pHonE first tHInG In tHE morn­InG

“Your willpower is strong­est the mo­ment you wake up, so it’s ideal to ex­er­cise or do some­thing pos­i­tive. The mo­ment you check if there’s an email, you’ll think you have to re­ply and thoughts of what­ever it was you wanted to do goes out the win­dow. The world can wait an­other 20 or 30 min­utes. Start your day with some me-time.”
