Thinking Positive Won't Make You Happy

One of the most common things people say to me is, "I know if I could just change my thinking and be more positive, then I’d be happy. I know it's my fault I'm unhappy because of the thoughts I choose".

If it were THAT simple and just 'thinking happy thoughts' was the key to everything, then the world would be a really happy place. But it's not, because it's not that simple.

Taking a 'bottom up approach' is a much easier way to find happiness.

When we begin the practice of noticing how we feel: the sensations in our body, our breathing, our heart rate… we can start to unlock the causes of our unhappiness.

In this video I explain how to do this, and why it's so important.

Prioritizing the feelings in our body over the thoughts in our mind puts us on the fast-track to happiness.
