On the late December day that Feeling Groovy was published I lit the log fire in my living room and gazed contentedly into the flames. It was one of the high points in my life. I had finally found a way to share my knowledge, gleaned from coaching over 1,000 people, of how to lead a happy, healthy and prosperous life.

Life is at its best when you feel “on top of the world.” It is my opinion that no thought, no activity, no amount of money can ever surpass the best feelings. The pinnacles in your life are the stand out feelings that you experience. The more you manage to make yourself feel wonderful, the higher will be your life experience.

In the 25+ years I have been a self-realisation coach I have come to understand that we are all driven primarily by our twin desires to feel “good” and to avoid feeling “bad.” We feel more acutely alive and animated when we experience heightened levels of positive feelings such as love, happiness, friendship, confidence and hope. The question is: “How do I get to experience these positive feelings all the time?”

Feeling Groovy is a book that explains my philosophy of how to live a happy, healthy and prosperous life. It is is about the best ways to think and behave in order to induce and maintain the groovy feelings that will enhance your life. The book Feeling Groovy and this blog are intended to be your “go-to recipe” when your spirits need a lift.

The aim of this blog is to help you to feel groovy every day of your life. I will help you to achieve this by posting simple daily exercises from the Feeling Groovy Coaching programme on this blog. You can also receive the exercises by entering your email and first name in the form at the top of the right hand column. When you join us you will automatically receive a free copy of the first two chapters of the book Feeling Groovy.

Today’s Exercise: start imaging how you would like your life to be. Imagine what you would like to have in your life, what you would like to be doing and where you would like to be. Also imagine what you would like to NOT have in your life, what you would like to NOT be doing and where you would NOT like to be, if that is the case. Make notes of what you really want

How To Feel Happy

What you need to realise is that you have a choice. You can choose to be happy or unhappy.

This sounds almost too simple to be true, but it is true. Think about it like this: “Whose feelings are your feelings?” Yours, right. “Who creates your feelings?” You do, right. What could be simpler then than for you to create the feelings that you want.

Now, here’s the problem. You have an innate resistance to creating your feelings. You have an expectation that something has to happen in order for you to feel happy. You have grown up thinking that it has to be your birthday, or you have an exciting date, or it is Christmas time in order for you to feel happy. But this is simply not the case. All of these events or occasions are simply triggers that set off your happy feelings. The actual feelings are entirely yours.

You can trigger a happy feeling at any time, all you have to do is make the decision, “I will feel happy now.” That’s it!

This is what Groovy People do. We simply take charge of our minds and decide how we wish to feel at any given time. We don’t rely on other people or events to trigger our happiness – we do this ourselves.

This is just a short article you can get a lot more detail of how to make yourself happy from my book Feeling Groovy.

How to Make Your Life Enjoyable

It’s really quite simple – your life can be filled with fun, love and enjoyment or it can crammed full of stress, anxiety and darkness. It’s a simple choice that you can make at any time.

Should you decide to make your life enjoyable the first step is to decide what “enjoyable” actually means to you. Does it mean lazing on a beach all day, or does it mean achieving a long held ambition, or does it mean playing with your kids, or does it mean watching TV all day long. The trick here is to think about what you would be doing every day for most of the day that would be enjoyable.

A word of advice; it may be that you don’t have to change a great deal about your life. It is possible, for instance, that simply by changing your attitude towards your work you could make it a lot more enjoyable. Or you might just need to renegotiate your contract of employment. In this context I should point out that work is one of the main areas where we can achieve goals and gain a sense of fulfilment, both of which are enjoyable aspects of life.

Once you have decided that you want to make your life enjoyable you need to create a vision of how you will behave in order for your life to be enjoyable. “What are you like when you are enjoying life? What do you look like? How do you feel?”

Then, when you have created your vision of how you want to feel and behave so that you can enjoy your life, you need to take charge of your mind. First you need to be constantly alert, aware of what you are doing and how you are doing it. Being aware of your actions allows you to make the constant corrections to your behaviour that will keep you in the correct groove.

Over time, as you do these simple things constantly and consistently, you will form the habit of enjoying your life.

This is just a short article you can get a lot more detail of how to make your life enjoyable from my book Feeling Groovy.
