Happiness is a choice
The most crucial thing to understand about happiness is that it is not a result of one’s current situation. Happiness is a decision, on the contrary. Is this more difficult on certain days than others? Without a doubt, You can never, ever be happy if you fall into the trap of believing your circumstances must alter before you can be happy.
Concentrate on the positive
Good things are in your life right now: you are alive, you’re nourished, you’ve got family and friends, and you’ve got the opportunity to work meaningfully every day. Maybe not all of them apply to you right now, but at least some of them do, indicating that there is good in your life to focus on.
Stop comparing yourself to others
Comparison will rob you of happiness, regardless of how you define it—short-term or long-term. There are no winners in the game of comparison, whether we compare our wealth, our body types, our vacations, our abilities, our house size, or our shoe size. But there’s some good news: you’re not being forced to play! You have the option to stop at any moment. Stop comparing yourself to others and be grateful for what you have. Also, respect who you are. Work hard every day to live your best life.
Get some workout
Even mild exercise generates hormones in the brain that make you feel better. It can improve your sleep, give you more energy, and maintain your heart in good shape. Pick an activity that you enjoy. If it makes it easier, do it with a friend or while listening to music. Adults should strive for 150 minutes of physical activity every week.
Have enough sleep
The average amount of sleep required by an adult for their body and mind to relax is 7 to 8 hours. Learn why a lack of sleep is harmful to your health. Before going to bed, make a “to do” list for the next day to help organize your thoughts and cleanse your mind of any distractions.
