Finding happiness can be done in so many ways, and what brings you happiness may not bring happiness for another.
However, we scoured our resources and found some universal tips for finding happiness that can work for anyone. We hope you will try each and every one and your life will be filled with overflowing happiness.
Take notice of the good things in your life and be thankful and appreciate them. Remember them daily to reinforce the positive message they bring you.
2. Be Spontaneous
Daily routines and habits can be a comfort for many of us. But, they can leave you feeling like your life is in a rut. Taking a moment to be spontaneous gives you a chance to step out of the daily routine and boost your happiness level.
3. Enjoy The Moment
Slow down for a moment. Look around you. What do you see, smell, or hear? Life is all around and if you give it a moment to sink in, you may just find that the happiness you have been looking for has been right there all along.
4. Fulfill A Goal
Have you had a personal goal you always wanted to fulfill? Stop procrastinating or giving excuses, just do it. Put aside all the busy work in your life and finish your goal. The amount of satisfaction and accomplishment that you will feel will be amazing. You will wonder why you waited so long.
5. Let Go
We can be our own worst enemy. Many times we down ourselves for being different or not being able-bodied enough to accomplish something, or we dwell on life circumstances that really may not be in our control. Allowing negative thoughts to penetrate will drain any amount of happiness we have, if we allow them. Do not give these thoughts a captive audience. Take the negative thought and twist it around into something positive. Dwelling daily on positive messaging will surely boost your happiness.
6. Give Of Yourself
It is amazing how giving of your own time to others can have such a big impact, not only on the person you help, but yourself. Helping a fellow human being in their time of need and seeing their gratitude and happiness can bring you a multitude of joy and happiness.
7. Be Ready For Change
If there is one thing certain in life it is change. Life is all about changes. Some changes can be good, some not so good. There can be changes in your family, friends, living circumstances, wealth, and health. Some changes we will not see coming, but there are many changes that come through our own actions. Help yourself with those transitions by planning ahead, preparing for the worst case scenarios, and having a loving support group available. Your happiness may surely depend on it.
8. Do Things That Bring You Joy
Do you like to stroll through the park on a crisp, autumn day or curl up on your sofa and read a novel? Taking time to do things that bring you joy may seem trivial at the time, but they can greatly impact your happiness.
9. Get Organized
For many, there is nothing more stressful than clutter and disorganization. Trying to find what you want in a crammed closet or unorganized space of any sort can affect your outlook for the day. Take time to declutter and reap the happiness rewards.
10. Choose Happiness
It may sound logical that if you want to be happy, you will be. But for some of us, we have to actually make the daily choice to be, well, happy. Make a habit of waking up and thinking "Today I will be happy". You will literally train your brain over time to think first of being happy.
So let's #GetYourHappyOn.
