A question we’ve all asked ourselves (and at times, even asked Google) only too often. First things first — happiness is different for every single person. From being at peace with who they are, to possessing a secure network of family and friends to having the freedom to pursue your deepest dreams — it could mean any or all of the above or a lot more for different people.
One thing stays constant for everyone though — regardless of your version of being happy, living a joyous and content life is within reach. It begins with habits — that’s what can help you get there. Just like bad habits are deeply ingrained (don’t we all know that very well), good habits can be as well. So why don’t we start making positive habits part of our everyday routine? That’s where the answer to the question “how to be happy” can be found.
Smile. Giggle. Laugh.
You might think that you need to be happy to smile. But actually, it works the other way around as well. Smiling makes our brain release dopamine, which makes us happier. Obviously, that doesn’t mean going around with a fake smile plastered on your face — that might be weird (and not just for you :P). But the next time you find yourself feeling a bit low, maybe watch some stand up or spend time with someone who makes you smile. Another good habit would be to try starting each day by smiling at yourself in the mirror.
Exercise isn’t just for your biceps or those abs you’re seeking. A regular work out can help reduce stress, anxiety, and symptoms of depression while boosting self-confidence and happiness. Any kind of physical activity can make a difference. You don’t really need to do a triathlon or climb a mountain — unless that’s what makes you happy, of course. The route to “how to live a happy life” often goes through a park — so take that walk!
That Grateful Feeling
Being grateful goes a long way in making you feel good. A recent study found that practicing gratitude has a significant impact on feelings of hope and happiness. A good practice would be to start each day by acknowledging one thing you’re grateful for. Do this while brushing your teeth or just waiting in bed before it’s too late to get up. With a little practice and repetition, you may become more aware of all the positive things around you.
No matter how much our modern lifestyle affects our sleeping habits, we have to ensure we get those hours in. Adequate sleep is vital to good health, brain function, and emotional well-being. Here are a few tips to help you build a better sleep routine:
1. Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.
2. Just before going to bed, take a bath, read, or do something relaxing.
3. Avoid heavy eating and drinking at night.
4. Keep your bedroom dark, cool and quiet.
5. Try these awesome Gummy Pops
There are several different methods of meditation that you could explore. They can involve certain movements, deep focus, spirituality, or a combination of all three. While meditation is often said to be an important habit for improving clarity and attention span, it's also useful for improving your happiness. Studies show that regular meditation can permanently rewire the brain to raise levels of happiness. One of the prime reasons for the increase in the number of people downloading more meditation-related apps, like Headspace.
