5 Simple Ways to Be Happier

Something I am always trying to do is be more positive and happier in my life. Some people appear to be naturally positive people whereas others have to work on in each day. So if you are like me and are prone to negative thinking, here are some of my simple ways or things you can do to feel happier each day.

1.Be Grateful
By trying to come up with a list of all the things you are grateful for each day it can really help to improve your overall mood. Starting the day in such a positive way helps to get you off to a great start so try to come up with a short list of  the things you are grateful for at the beginning of each day. 

2. Get Moving
It is proven that exercise improves our mood because it helps your body produce endorphins which interact with the opiate receptors in the brain to reduce our perception of pain and improve your mood. Even doing some small exercise each day, like walking your dog or jumping around to your favourite song, is guarenteed to lift your mood. It doesn’t have to be the drag or effort that everyone thinks. Even if you just do a small bit, you should feel the benefits.

3. Don’t sweat the small stuff
A lot of us are rushing around and stressing about all the things we have to do when some of them aren’t half as important and we make them out to be. If you don’t let the little things get to you and learn to take them in your stride, you will be able to relax and enjoy life more.

4. Have Faith
I am defintely guilty of overworrying and overthining, especially about the future. I put myself into a bad mood by fretting over what is going to happen next year or stressing that I don’t know what to do with my life yet. If we all just have faith that no matter what happens, it will all turn out okay in the end and this is the path we must take (even if it doesn’t look so great right now). Believing that it will all work out eventually will help to stop you bringing yourself down with negative thoughts.

5. Do Something you love every day
Life would be pretty awful if we never got to do anything we truly love so try to do something you love every day. I’m not talking about making a living out of what you love, but just do something that you love each day even if it is just for 30 minutes. If you love reading, meeting your friends or painting a piece of artwork, then make time to do it. This also gives you something to look forward to for the rest of the day.
