Quick Ways To Be Happier


When we're in the thick of life's stressy times, just like we are now, sometimes we feel down in the dumps and don't experience any happiness. But happiness just feels good, and we should try to experience the joy of happiness for the small things in life, without worrying about the bigger picture at the moment. 

Whilst it might seem that a new house, higher wage, and a better job might bring more happiness, those are just fleeting and don't last, whereas there are some things you can do to achieve happiness quickly. Here are some quick strategies for instant feelings of happiness.

Change Your Perspective
Often, your satisfaction with life is tied to the comparisons you make. If you're trying to keep up with your friends. neighbours pr family members, when they are more well off than you, this is going to be upsetting. One quick and simple way to turn your mood around is to change your expectations and comparison. Instead of looking at what you don’t have, look at all that you do have.

So, for a quick burst of happiness, why not throw on your favourite tune and blast it out.

Try Meditation
While a technique like meditation seems more of a stress management tool than something that can boost happiness, meditation is known to be an excellent tool for both and can be an excellent mood booster. Regular meditation can lead to greater levels of happiness and will leave you feeling less stressed too.

    It's so important to realize we can't control the world but we can control our response to it.

  12. It's true not to compare yourself to others and concentrate on your own happiness. We all have strengths and weaknesses and we need to have gratitude for the blessings already in our lives. Let's all choose to be happy and positive thoughts lead to more positive thoughts x
