There is no fast formula for happiness. Some ways may prove helpful for some people, but they may not have the same impact on others. What makes happiness so unique is that it comes after a period of hardship and sorrows. So, if you want to be happier for the rest of the year, you should definitely consider these things:
Stop Feeling Like A Victim
This is one of the quickest ways you can ruin your life. When you start feeling like a victim, your perspective about the world changes and everything seems hopeless. Understand that the way you perceive the world is how you create the world for yourself. Take control of your life!
When was the last time you laughed out loud? How much time do you spend laughing in a day? Most of us don’t purposefully laugh and this affects our lives. You need to laugh as it releases oxytocin, a happy hormone that uplifts our mood. Watch a funny TV show or spend time in a gathering of light-hearted people.
Do What Makes You Happy
This may sound cliché but it is the truth that a person feels the most happier when he starts doing something that makes him happy – even if it means giving a little time to it on a daily basis. The point is that you should stop doing what is draining you and start doing what really excites you.
Numerous studies have strongly suggested that exercise can be really helpful in overcoming depression and has a profound impact on our well-being and happiness. Even exercise for 10-15 minutes a day is enough.
Spend Time with Your Family and Friends
Did you know that one of the main regrets of people on their deathbed is their lack of spent time with their friends and family? Death is inevitable, so why not leave this earth with lots of good memories rather than money that you can’t spend anymore. Social time can be really helpful in overcoming depression and it can actually make you feel happier.
