5 Happiness Tips to Add To Your Life

We all have lulls in our moods or our day. It is so easy to get caught up in our own pity party, but how are we going to snap ourselves out of this so we can feel better and not make the people around us miserable as well.

Here are five tricks that add happiness to your life and creates a better environment for you all around.

#1 Find an exercise that you enjoy – Exercise raises your endorphins and when it is enjoyable for you that is a double bonus. Do an activity outside to add even more happiness to your life. You will also find fewer reasons to try to get out of doing it!

#2 DIY Projects – Make a check list of potential house projects or improvements and then save it for a rainy day or a weekend when you want to feel really accomplished. Build something, paint, putting up shelves and pictures, and organize are great ways to sweat and expend energy, all while making house more put together.

# 3 – Have Correct Posture @ Work – If you work in an office, make sure you have a comfortable, supportive desk chair or even a standing desk. Here are some great tips and tricks from the renowned P.T. Kelly Starrett in keeping correct posture in chairs. These tips and simple adjustments might seem small, but they will have a huge impact on your overall health now and years from now.

# 4  Plan meals – I plan my meals on saturday afternoon and then make at least two to three meals on Sunday so I know that until Wednesday or Thursday I won’t have to worry about food. I can’t begin to express the stress that is involved with what to make, how to make, and when to make food … This is a professional approach that will make you very successful in your nutrition and other aspects of planning in your life.

# 5 Carry a water bottle – Keep refilling it and drinking it throughout the day. You’ll be less hungry and water will help you to stay energized and focused. Here is a great article on the 10 benefits water has on your overall health.
