How to be Happy
Being happy is not a Rocket Science
It's easy to think of happiness as a result, but happiness is also
a driver.
Here are 10 science-based ways to be happier
1. Exercise: 7 Minutes Could Be Enough
Think exercise is something you don't have time for? Think again. Check
out the 7 minute workout mentioned in The New York Times. That's a
workout any of us can fit into our schedules
2. Sleep More: You'll Be Less Sensitive to Negative
Emotions
We know that sleep helps our body recover from the day
and repair itself and that it helps us focus and be more
productive. It turns out sleep is also important for
happiness
3.Spend More Time With Friends/Family: Money Can't Buy You
Happiness
Staying in touch with friends and family is one of the. top five
regrets of the dying.
If you want more evidence that time with friends is beneficial for
you, research proves it can make you happier right now, too.
MAKING TIME TO GO OUTSIDE ON A NICE DAY ALSO DELIVERS A HUGE
ADVANTAGE; ONE STUDY FOUND THAT SPENDING 20 MINUTES OUTSIDE
IN GOOD WEATHER NOT ONLY BOOSTED POSITIVE MOOD, BUT
BROADENED THINKING AND IMPROVED WORKING MEMORY
4.Get Outside More: Happiness is Maximized at 57°
5. HELP OTHERS: 100 HOURS A YEAR IS THE MAGIC
NUMBER
One of the most counterintuitive pieces of advice I found is that to make
yourself feel happier, you should help others. In fact, 100 hours per year
(or two hours per week) is the optimal time we should dedicate to
helping others in order to enrich our lives.
6. PRACTICE SMILING: REDUCE PAIN, IMPROVE
MOOD, THINK BETTER
A new study led by a Michigan State University business scholar suggests
customer-service workers who fake smile throughout the day worsen
their mood and withdraw from work, affecting productivity. But workers
who smile as a result of cultivating positive thoughts--such as a tropical
vacation or a child's recital--improve their mood and withdraw less.
7. PLAN A TRIP: IT HELPS EVEN IF YOU DON'T ACTUALLY
TAKE ONE
As opposed to actually taking a holiday, simply planning a vacation or
break from work can improve our happiness. A study published in the
journal Applied Research in Quality of Life showed that the highest spike
in happiness came during the planning stage of a vacation as people
enjoy the sense of anticipation:
8. Meditate: Rewire Your Brain for Happiness
Meditation is often touted as an important habit for
improving focus, clarity, and attention span, as well as
helping to keep you calm. It turns out it's also useful for
improving your happiness
9. Move Closer to Work: A Short Commute is Worth More
Than a Big House
Our commute to work can have a surprisingly powerful
impact on our happiness. The fact that we tend to commute
twice a day at least five days a week makes it unsurprising
that the effect would build up over time and make us less
and less happy
10. Practice Gratitude: Increase Happiness and Satisfaction
This is a seemingly simple strategy but I've personally found it to make a
huge difference to my outlook. There are lots of ways to practice gratitude,
from keeping a journal of things you're grateful for, sharing three good
things that happen each day with a friend or your partner, and going out of
your way to show gratitude when others help you
