Gratitude means to show others how much you valve their support, help and efforts towards yourself. Journaling means to write down whatever comes in mind. Exercise to go out and workout in fresh air to stay calm and get energy. Medication means to breath in and out air which relaxes your mind. Random acts of kindness is to help others whenever possible by seeing them happy and smiling you will be happy as emotions are contagious.
By all of these you can build internal peace. I used random acts of kindness to stay away of negative things. I helped people whenever possible and believe me it is really effective when you makes someone smile and happy in stressful time it is awesome feeling and it makes your inner satisfied. And it makes you to stay relive, positive and happy all the day.
I also used gratitude which is also an amazing way to make anyone happy. I think everyone wants their efforts to be acknowledged and praised. If you thanked them it will encourage them to help others.I express my gratitude to Amal alumni who came on Sunday for our mock interview for me it was really great experience.I feel more positive and optimistic.
Being happy is an art so be happy and positive.
