If you’ve ever been to Hawaii or heard about its culture, then you know that Hawaii caters to a very carefree and grateful way of thinking. People tend to be calmer, more loving and less stressed than many Americans. So what are some mentalities Hawaiians use that Americans do not? The answers may be simpler than you think. Look over the following habits of Hawaiians and try to take in some of their wonderful vibes to simplify your world and give you more mental and physical peace.
1. Know That Less Is More
Less drama, less stressing and less negative thinking is a fantastic way to promote peace of mind. People wear less and bring fewer belongings to the beach. Get this- you don’t just have to live in Hawaii to adopt these fabulous mentalities and apply them to your life. Try simplifying your life and distancing yourself from people who bring you drama. Try to spew less dramatic language yourself and just kind of go with the flow. Also try to stop over-analyzing everything and be more present in the moment.
2. Let Things Go
Hawaiins are notorious for not taking themselves too seriously. They know that tomorrow is a new day and everything will work itself out in time. Did you know that a common term in Hawaii is “never mind?” This really means to let things go. Imagine how much more peaceful your life would be if you didn’t hold grudges and you just moved on with your life? The next time someone wrongs you, say to yourself, “never mind, tomorrow is a new day” and see how your life transforms.
3. Play Outdoors
In Hawaii, the outdoors are like therapy for the mind and body and going outside is a fun way to release energy and play. When was the last time you went outside just to have fun? Maybe you should try doing some fun water activities, like kayaking or boating. If you love soccer and basketball, play some of that outdoors. Make sure you’re devoting at least a couple of days a week to outdoor activities that nourish you and bring out your inner child.
