#1 Express gratitude
When you appreciate what you have, what you have appreciates in value. If we aren’t thankful for what we already have, we will have a hard time ever being happy. Start a gratitude journal and write down three things you are grateful for each day.
#2 Cultivate optimism
People who think optimistically see the world as a place packed with endless opportunities, especially in trying times. When you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, see if you can turn it into a positive thought.
#3 Practice acts of kindness
Selflessly helping someone is a super powerful way to feel good inside. Pay it forward by doing one act of kindness each day. A simple smile and a hello can be the best gift ever to someone who really needs it. Picking up a piece of garbage that’s blowing around outside is a kind thing to do for our environment.
#4 Commit to setting and reaching your goals
Magical things start to happen when we commit ourselves to doing whatever it takes to get somewhere. Set a new goal for yourself then go after it! Read a new book. Go for a 30 minute walk each day for a month.
#5 Take care of your body
Taking care of your body is crucial to being the happiest person you can be. Exercise,eat right, get adequate sleep and hydration. Meditate, relax. Think happy thoughts and breathe deeply.
“To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.”
