Four States for a Happier Day: Energy, Focus, Peace, and Joy

Apr 13, 2024

"Imagine a day where you're in control of your states of being, moving effortlessly from energetic to focused, to peaceful, and joyful. This isn't just a far-off dream, but a reality you can experience."


1. Energetic State

Let's embark on this journey together, starting with the state of being energetic. Picture yourself waking up to a new day. The sun is shining, and you're ready to embrace everything that comes your way. But how do you tap into this energy? It's simpler than you think. Change your physiology. Dance like no one's watching, take an invigorating shower, do a few yoga poses, or go for a brisk walk. These activities act as a switch, turning on your energy and preparing you for the day ahead.


2. Focused State

As the day progresses, it's time to transition into the focused state. This is particularly important when you're working. 

The Pomodoro technique is a powerful tool to maintain focus. Work for twenty-five minutes, then take a five-minute break. Repeat this cycle, and soon, you'll find yourself achieving more than you thought possible, all with laser-like focus.


3. Peaceful State

As the sun begins to set, it's time to move into a peaceful state. Practice doing nothing. Yes, you heard it right. Put your electronics away, close your eyes for five minutes, or meditate. This state of tranquility allows your mind and body to recharge, preparing you for the joys that lie ahead.


4: Joyful State

Throughout the day, every moment is an opportunity to experience joy. Your body has its own unique way of creating this joy through the release of 'happy hormones'. 

Dopamine, often referred to as the 'reward chemical', is released through activities like setting goals, laughing, dancing, and even savouring your favourite meal. It's the burst of satisfaction you feel when you achieve something you've been striving for.

Next, we have Oxytocin, the 'bonding hormone'. It's released when you make real connections with others, be it loved ones, friends, or work colleagues. It's the warm feeling you get when you share a heartfelt conversation, or when you simply hug someone you care about.

Then there's Serotonin, the 'mood stabilizer'. This is released when you connect with nature. Going for a peaceful walk, or just sitting in a park, can boost your serotonin levels. It's the serene contentment you feel when you take a moment to appreciate the natural world around you.

Remember, every interaction, every achievement, every meal, can be a source of joy. And let's not forget about Endorphins, the natural painkillers, which are released during high-intensity workouts or when you experience a runner's high.


Conclusion - Designing a Happier Day
