Derren Brown

Owning a house or a car isn't the way to happiness. To be happy, you should appreciate the things in your life and accept what you can't control. Paying attention to what you feel, think, and do and relaxing will be easier as soon as you recognize the difference. As a result, you'll have a healthier heart, mind, and relationships. Try Stoic meditation first thing in the morning. Stoicism requires practice. You should alter your morning routine to begin. Before everything, consider what's to come and possible difficulties. Maybe it's a frustrating colleague or slow traffic on your route. You cannot change other people's behavior or control the vehicles on the road, and you should be aware of things that make you angry. Every time you do that in the morning, you'll feel calmer in your house.
