Happiness is what we all strive for. But sometimes its difficult to appreciate when someone you know feels great, and you don’t.

Yoga philosophy (and Buddhism, too) gives us a prescription for how to deal with this situation and just about any other circumstance in our relationships. Four straight-forward practices for four different – and very human – situations. These are ways to help us return to feeling inner peace when we’re agitated. The Buddhists call these the Brahmaviharas. I call them “The 4 Attitudes”.

A No-Brainer?

The first situation is when we encounter someone who is happy. It really should be a no-brainer, huh?  They’re happy, so we “should” be happy for them. But we know that isn’t always easy. If they seem to be rolling in the cash and we’re financially struggling – or they’ve found the love of their life, while we’re in a break-up – it can agitate us. Seeing others who are happy can actually disturb our peace of mind.
