Don’t allow envy to ruin your day

What is that sly thing that can spoil your life? According to author John Izzo, jealousy is the thing and it’s one of the major thieves of happiness. So don’t allow envy to ruin your day.

If you’re often feeling jealous, remember the following:

Recognize the phenomenon

If you aren’t able to find a problem, you won’t be able to solve it. This idea is also true in case of jealousy that can easily ruin your day. So when you catch yourself having negative feelings about someone who has achieved something you were aiming for, take a deep breath. Take a step back and think of the words of the Dalai Lama. According to which, humanity is one, not many. Therefore, the success of your neighbor is also your joy.

Practice gratitude

Why do you focus on what you don’t have instead of what you do? Do you have to lose something in order to recognize its value? Before it’s too late, don’t hesitate to pick up a piece of paper and a pen and record everything that gives you joy daily. This could be a person, an animal, or just something that gives you some good luck in your routine. In fact, you can even challenge yourself to find something every day for which you are grateful. So focus on the “I” and your own effort rather than what is happening outside and around you.
