Five Easy Things You Can Do Every Day to Feel Happy
Number 1: Speak Daily Affirmations. With all the negativity surrounding the pandemic, the economy, and racial injustice, pulling you down, how do you stay positive? By proclaiming the positive. What do you believe about yourself that is affirming? Are you strong? Are you capable? Are you determined to win regardless of the obstacles? When you speak what you affirm out loud, it positively affects your emotions. It creates a feeling of confidence and happiness. Write out your affirmations and begin your day with at least twenty.
Number 2: Give. Giving is one of the most potent happiness-creating actions of all times. What do you have that you can give? Offering a word of encouragement, a helping hand where needed, a big tip to a server, or a surprise cup of coffee to a co-worker can create wonderful feelings of selflessness.
Number 3: Accomplish Something Early. Do you ever get to the end of the day and wonder what you achieved? To combat this uneasy feeling, plan the night before what you absolutely must complete the following day. After your affirmations, put on your blinders, forget everyone else’s agenda and get it done. The rest of the day will be built on a feeling of accomplishment.
Number 4: Take A Dark Chocolate Break. Dark chocolate triggers walls in your blood vessels to relax, which lowers blood pressure and improves circulation. It also contains magnesium, a mineral shown to help alleviate fatigue and depression. As if that weren’t enough, dark chocolate enacts a sense of euphoria.
Number 5: Quit. Quitting at a specific time each day gives your mind a place to stop. It also frees up space for the little things in life, like talking to your spouse and introducing yourself to your kids. One of the keys to a happier life is to be proactive about your welfare. Take back control and do what is in the best interest of your mental well-being.
