With its functional and diverse amenities and wide and green luxurious spaces, Pristina North Residences is simply an ideal place to raise a happy family.
Apart from the basic need to survive, there’s another crucial factor that drives individuals to strive in life: the pursuit of happiness. In a pandemic-stricken world where people are only starting to get used to the kind of normal that was prevalent two years ago, it seems as though this concept has managed to escape most individuals’ respective grasps. With all the anxiety and uncertainty that abound the world, it’s getting more difficult to find what can potentially make you truly happy and why. Is happiness being able to achieve your dreams at a certain deadline or is it just having property in Pristina North Residences? Is it relative or is it something that every individual is hardwired to feel if a given set of conditions are met?
While philosophers have argued time and again about what true happiness is, simple folk tend to ascribe it to more fundamental aspects: having a home with your loved ones in it. As the adage goes, simplicity breeds happiness, and while some people think that you need to go on a long journey to acquire it, you might find it just at home. Here’s a simple but meaningful guide on how to find happiness in the simplest of ways.
It Starts Inwards
There’s this concept about self-reflection which states that whatever you have in the inside reflects on your surroundings. To some extent, it makes sense because if you’re feeling confused or conflicted, it’ll reflect in the way you handle your home and your relationships with other people, who may otherwise feel what you’re feeling if they’re empathic enough. In effect, if you’re happier now, people will feel lighter around you and you’re more motivated to spread this kind of warmth from the home to the workplace. It’ll also reflect in the way you take care of your home.
But it’s understandable that everyone is going through their own personal journeys and there’s always going to be a little rough and tumble every now and then. In times like these, it’s best to count your blessings and adopt an attitude of gratitude. For starters, list down 5 things you’re grateful for at the start and end of your day. Do this on a regular basis, and you’ll be able to weather most emotional and spiritual storms.
The same can be said when it comes to your home. To quote thought leader Marie Kondo when it comes to decluttering, “Does it spark joy?”. Design your home in such a way that it helps you stay happy. It might also help if you consider regular maintenance of your home as a family activity that everyone can partake in. After all, a family that cleans together stays together.
Of course, it helps if you have the space to work with when it comes to your physical home. Pristina North Residences’ units have enough space to shelter medium to large-sized families.
Unleash Your Inner Artist
Ever since the pandemic hit, depression and anxiety rates skyrocketed. There’s been a massive collective of sadness in most homes because of a rather rapid change in such a short amount of time. Companies have required their respective employees to work from home, students were forced to have classes inside their respective rooms and, overall, people have had to discover different ways to separate work from life.
However, some people have found time to get back to their respective passions. Other people have started engaging in activities and hobbies that they’ve been putting off perhaps due to the time they spend on the commute from work.
Be it arts and crafts, content creation or just playing video games, most of these people have found that to separate work from life, it’s important to have a life. Whether it’s writing a book or painting on a canvass, determine what makes you feel creative and fulfilled. Once you’ve found one, make sure to engage in this activity on a regular basis. Once you’ve established a routine that sparks joy, you now have something you can busy yourself with that’s not work, thereby establishing a relatively healthy work-life balance. And with balance, a healthy kind of happiness and fulfillment is easily obtained.
Take A Leisurely Stroll Outside
Now that nationwide quarantine has been lifted and everyone’s finding ways to get back on the way things used to be (with a slight difference of practicing social distancing and wearing masks), people have started going out again. Whether it’s meeting up with friends in the mall or just having a cold drink in a nearby bar by oneself, people have started relishing what life was like 2 years ago.
That being said, if you’re still working with a remote setup (or may have been following a hybrid office schedule), you might want to take your breaks outside of the 4 walls that surround you. There’s therapeutic value to seeing and feeling the sun with your eyes and on your skin. If you’re working in a creative department of your company, just having a short stroll along your neighborhood (or the city streets) can help boost your creativity.
Living in a neighborhood like Pristina North Residences with wide open spaces and pocket parks can help you achieve the balance of working from home and having that safe space for your family. You can take a leisurely stroll around the manicured garden to de-stress, take your online meetings at the poolside while watching your children swim. The playground and garden areas are also great places to take your spouse and/ or children to if you want to meet up with your neighbors. If you want to stay fit and active, you can visit the fitness center for strength training or just jog or run across the property’s lush green space for cardio.
Share That Happy Feeling
When you’re feeling happy, it doubles if you manage to share that with everyone. Be it through random acts of kindness towards your loved ones or colleagues at work, or charity and/ or volunteer work over the weekend, paying it forward helps you put things in perspective.
Regardless whether happiness is something that one needs to go on a lifelong journey for, or it’s just the fact that someone or something cares for you, having a cozy and comfortable home contributes to this feeling and that’s really all that matters at the end of the day.
As mentioned, it helps if you have a home that contributes to your happiness.
