Your life is only as good or bad as you see it to be. There will be times when it is almost impossible to see the silver lining. We give you some of the ways in which you can try to be satisfied with your life.

1. Ignore how others judge your life

Is your life defined by what others think about you? Does a single negative statement from someone shatter your confidence to bits? Well, it is high time to start believing in yourself and have faith in your own judgments. Do not rate the quality of your life by how others perceive it. Just because your friends do not feel that you are living your life to the fullest, it does not mean that you start doubting things. Just know that you are happy, irrespective of what others think about your life.

2. Think of those who are less fortunate

You will never feel satisfied with what you have if you constantly keep comparing it with people who are more accomplished or are richer than you. This will only fill you with despair and sadness. Rather, try to think of those you would do anything to have the kind of life that you are leading. Compare your life with those who are less fortunate and you will be filled with happiness.

3. Nobody is happy all the time

Keep this in mind at all times that nobody can be happy all the time. You may feel that the grass is greener on the other side but understand that those on the other side find your grass greener than theirs. Life has its shares of ups and downs and everyone is busy in their own pursuit of happiness.

4. Focus on the positives

It is up to you. Do you want to see the glass as half empty or as half full? It is just about shifting your mindset. If you train yourself to focus on all that is good in your life then you will feel as if all your misery is going away from you. This will eventually lead to contentment.

5. Be grateful

Have you ever been thankful for what you have or do you only keep striving to get what you do not have? For instance, if you fail to get a goodnight’s sleep, do you go around feeling annoyed or does it make you feel grateful for all those nights that you slept like a baby? You need to foster a feeling of gratefulness for all that is good in your life and you will see things changing for the better.

6. Be around people who make you feel good

In order to feel satisfied in life, you need to surround yourself with those who have a positive attitude towards life. If you spend too much time with those who are cynical, you will start to feel bad about your life as well.

7. Live in the present moment

If you find your mind constantly swinging between the past and the future, you need to bring it back to the present. Thinking about the past will fill you with regret and investing too much time thinking about the future will make you anxious. You need to focus only on the present for it is now that you can work towards a better future.

8. Say to yourself, this too shall pass

Whenever you feel low or feel that your life is not going smoothly, remember that this is just a phase. Happiness or sorrow, nothing lasts forever. This will help you keep your balance in all kinds of situations and give you satisfaction.
