We all have different explanations of what happiness is and what it means to each of us. No matter what challenges, crossroads, and lifestyle changes you come across in your life, at the end of the day, your happiness is what truly matters most. Whether you’re in a relationship, have children, have a busy work life or whatever the circumstances are, it’s important to know how to be happy alone. When you know what makes you truly happy, practice self-care, take care of yourself and get out of your comfort zone, you will be able to see how powerful being happy alone can be.

In this article, you will discover 10 ways you can use to be all alone and feel completely happy while doing it!

Do one thing at a time. Single-task, don’t multitask. When you’re pouring water, just pour water. When you’re eating, just eat. When you’re bathing, just bathe. Don’t try to knock off a few tasks while eating or bathing or whatever else. Even though multitasking [may make] us feel more productive, studies show that we make more errors when juggling tasks and don’t retain information in working memory. Taking on one task at a time has us go more deeply into the task at hand, allowing us to think creatively and utilize problem-solving skills, which in turn enables us to get more meaning from the task. Though there can be a rush that comes with multitasking, ultimately connecting deeply with one activity leads to greater feelings of fulfillment.”

Stop trying to be perfect: You already are. Yes, each one of us is a work in progress, but that work is perfect in its state of evolution. When you are driven by perfection, you are unable to appreciate who you already are. Try instead to look at what is right about you.

Stop Trying to Impress Others: The people who want to be impressed (in the way I am talking about here) are not worth your time. The people who will judge you without knowing you or based on some criteria that are not even important to you are just not your people. The people who matter will think you are amazing. Pay more attention to them.

Stop Trying to Be Someone Else: If you are comparing yourself to someone who has different talents than you do or if you think that you should be doing things a different way than is natural for you, instead start to appreciate how you do things and what your talents are.

Find What You Love: When you let yourself be yourself, you will naturally be drawn to what you love. But, what you love also shows you something about who you are. If you don’t know what you love, experiment. If you like it, try doing it again and see if it grows into something.

Give Yourself Permission to Do What You Love: Once you find the things you love, do them a lot. The more that you do what you love, the happier and the more satisfied you will be with your life. If you know what you love but you are not doing it, get the support you need to give yourself permission to be happy.

Don’t Waste Time Doing Other Things: Why bother doing things that you do not enjoy? Yes, I understand life has some practicalities that need to be addressed, but once they have been attended to-are you still wasting time not doing what you love? If so, start a plan to cut out the things that are not in line with who you want to be or what you love, and then take action.

Slow Down: We can all get a bit ahead of ourselves. It is not about doing more or doing it faster, it is about really enjoying our life. We can’t do that if we are moving so fast that we don’t even know what is happening. Start by building some real breaks into your schedule.

Pay Attention to What Is Working (Most of the Time): Most of us would benefit from being a bit more positive. There is a place for looking at what is not working, but when we pay attention to what works, we often learn more about it and therefore can have more of it. We also feel better about what we are experiencing. If you see yourself getting negative, find one thing that is working.

Express Gratitude: Being grateful is one of the most effective ways to be happier. When in doubt, find something to appreciate. And don’t forget to apply it to yourself!

Learn to Fully Receive: The emphasis on doing that most of us have been enculturated into leaves us less skilled when it comes to receiving. But how can we have a full and rich life if we can’t receive it? The next time someone compliments you, take it in.

New to yoga? Well, you are not the only one. As a beginner, you might face a lot of confusions regarding what kind of yoga poses you should try. That’s why we are here to help you out.

1. Set your goals properly

It is very important that your goals are clear in your mind before trying yoga. The whole practice should begin with an achievable goal and right intentions.

Achievable goals: this part is very important as if you set unrealistic goals and are unable to make progress, you will end up giving up on yoga.

Right intentions: this one is to make sure that you genuinely want to achieve your aims through yoga.

Both of the above are important to keep you going.

2. Get yourself a good yoga teacher

In order to start your yoga journey, it is advisable to hire a good yoga teacher to help you maintain a good practice. A good teacher knows how to keep you interested and make your whole experience more enjoyable. An experienced and qualified yoga teacher will help you with all the details including the mental and physical effects. He or she will help your breathing techniques which will also boost your confidence.

3. Choose a good spot

Choosing a good spot will enhance your mood and provide you with a peaceful environment. However, if you have opted for yoga classes, make sure that you choose a place where you can see and hear your yoga teacher properly.

4. Start with Basic Postures

As a beginner, you should start your journey from basic postures that do not need a lot of stamina or strength. You are not supposed to be doing power yoga or intense yoga poses. Always keep in basic in the beginning. As your experience grows, you can start adding more challenging poses to your routine. At that time, basic yoga poses should be like warm up.

5. Take time to relax

After your yoga practice, make sure that you take time to rest your muscles. Even though you have a lot of tasks which are pending, it is better to lie down for a while and cool yourself down. This exercise helps you to relax your mind and increase your productivity.

6. Wear comfortable clothes

Make sure that your body is comfortable when you are out for some yoga practice. Since you are going to do a lot of stretching in different directions, that’s why it is necessary to wear stretchable and loose clothes to be able to do the positions correctly. Avoid wearing belts, jewelry, tight clothes or fabrics that might hurt your skin. Also, make sure that you wear comfortable underwear to avoid excessive exposing.

7. Challenge your limits

Always practice yoga as comfortable as you can. Take as much time as you want o go out of your comfort zone to enhance your abilities. Do not do any difficult pose unless you can handle it. Pushing yourself too much might end into a muscle injury. If your breathing is light, it means that you are doing it right but if you feel your breathing is jagged, stop pushing yourself.

8. Be Consistent

It is very important to be consistent with your daily practice of yoga because once you start skipping, you lose the habit and motivation. It is advisable to practice yoga early in the morning but in order to be consistent, you can do it at any time. Schedule a time table to remind yourself to practice.

Above were some of the tips which will help you through your yoga practice. As a beginner, it takes some time to get used to the routine but once you start experiencing it, you will feel a sense of relaxation.
