1. Start exercising
Research shows that seven minutes of exercise daily is all it takes to increase your happiness levels. You don’t have to do much. Climb up the stairs, take a walk or skip a rope. Whatever you do, keep moving.
2. Sleep more
Sleep allows your body to heal and affects our sensitivity to negative emotions.
3. Spend more time with friends and family
Social time with people we love will up your levels of happiness. Cultivate your friendships and make quality time for family and watch your disposition improve greatly.
4. Go outside more often
Spending snatches of time outside in the natural environment benefits your health. A study published in the Journal of Epidermiology and Community Health found that people who lived within a walking distance of a park or a wooded are experienced less anxiety and depression than those who lived farther away from green space.
5. Help other people
There is joy in giving and extending a helping hand to those who need it. Additionally, it makes one feel useful and increases ones sense of well-being. So sign up for that volunteer work.
6. Move closer to work
Studies show that commutes cause some level of stress to people and it builds over time. You may not notice the toll on you because sometimes there is traffic and sometimes it is a smooth ride home. Moving closer to your workplace could reduce this. If you can’t, find a relaxing activity to pass the time. Try reading, meditation or listening to some soothing music you love.
7. Practice gratitude
It is in practicing the art of gratitude that you realise how blessed you are and this simultaneously improves your outlook and moods. So evert morning or before you sleep, make it a habit to mention things thar you are grateful for.
