People define and experience happiness in different ways. And to follow others’ path is one of the surest ways to fail in finding it. Life unfolding as it is every day offers many chances to discover the things that make you feel good. From simple pleasures to pure bliss and all the positive emotions in between, every single day is a time to choose and create happiness. Here are some of the many ways to do it.
Do the things that are good for your health. Get active either by working out or spending time on activities that get you moving. Take a walk or make walking a part of your daily commute. Keep a healthy diet and avoid skipping meals regardless of how busy your day gets. Hydrate, rest, and schedule bedtime with quality sleep in mind.
Set challenging but reasonable goals for the day. Getting things done provides a feeling of accomplishing that can boost your mood and confidence. And the more challenging the task is, the greater the feeling of happiness one can get for completing it. Plan what you can of the day. Set challenging but realistic and reasonable goals that will make you feel good to finish.
Do a good deed. Do something good for others, no matter how small. There so many possibilities on this one. You can help a stranger who seems lost by taking the time to give directions. Or you can dine in pay-it-forward cafes or restaurants where you can donate coffee or a full meal to a stranger. No small good deed goes unrewarded by a positive feeling that will leave you happier.
