If you have not felt a sense of happiness coming from within for a long period of time over the past few months or years and are always triggered by something or a situation, then it's time for you to take stock.

What is Internal Happiness?

Internal Happiness refers to the inherent state of contentment and joy that resides within each individual.

It is also known as intrinsic or genuine happiness and plays a crucial role in overall well-being and life satisfaction.

It has unfortunately been buried under and overshadowed by:

+ societal conditioning

+ cultural expectations

+ lack of self-awareness

+ too many distractions

+ personal experiences

+ being stuck in a negative cycle.

My mission as a coach is to help you look inwards and reconnect with your inner happiness.

20 signs of internally happy individuals:

  1. You feel content and satisfied with your life overall.

  2. You are able to forgive and let go of past grievances.

  3. You find beauty in nature, art, and everyday life, nourishing your soul.

  4. You see the glass as half full, focusing on the positive aspects of situations.

  5. You frequently express gratitude for the blessings in your life, big or small.

  6. You are open to change and adapt well to new situations and challenges.

  7. You practice mindfulness, staying present and fully engaged in each moment.

  8. You pursue activities that provide a sense of purpose and meaning in your life.
