The Top 10 things That Can Make You Happier
Are you looking to make yourself happier? The good news is that there are a number of small changes you can make that will have a major impact on your mental health. According to research, the happiest people in the world are those who are making positive changes in their lives. So what are you waiting for? Here are some tips on how to make yourself happier:
Plan your day the night before
Making plans ahead of time will help you avoid feeling like an impulsive decision maker. Planning your day the night before will give you the chance to think about what you want to do and put some distance between you and the decision making process. This will help you avoid being mislead or taking rash actions that could lead to regret.
Read a book you’ve been meaning to get to
It’s likely that you haven’t read the book you want to recently. The only way to make sure you put the time into reading the book is to sit down with it and start reading it from cover to cover. Reading a book you’ve been meaning to get to will not only help you finish the book but also give you something to look forward to.
Make a morning cup of coffee
Asking someone to make you coffee in the morning is a huge leap of faith. You might be thinking that you can go to Starbucks and get yourself a coffee but those don’t come with antioxidants and fibre. The best coffee is the one you make yourself because you’re likely to be more careful with the amount of caffeine than in a restaurant. Also, when you make your coffee at home you’re more likely to stay away from the “bad” coffee habits that can damage your health.
Have some company over for dinner
Sometimes you just want to spend time with the people you love. Having company over for dinner gives you that chance. There’s nothing like sitting down with the people you love to just talk, relax, and enjoy each other’s company. Plus, having company over for dinner will give you an opportunity to try new things that you might want to take home with you for the rest of the week.
Do something you’ve wanted to do but hadn’t gotten around to it
It’s likely that you’ve wanted to do something but somehow got put on the backburner. The feeling of wanting to do something but not being able to get it done is known as “the pang of missing out”. Pushing yourself to get something done will make you feel more independent and less like you’re just “missing out” on life.
Make love again
Making love is a great way to make yourself happier. The act of making love can give your brain something to focus on so that you don’t have to think about what’s going on in your life. Plus, it’s a great way to spend time with your partner.
Stop being afraid of what other people think of you
Asking people to sit down and have a conversation with you about themselves can help you relax. People are generally more open-minded when they’re relaxed so asking people to sit down and talk to you about their problems can help you relax as well.
Try saying yes more often
Asking people to do things for you, such as stand in line with you, having a conversation with you, or make you a cup of coffee, can make you feel like a “yes” person. This will make you feel more confident and less like you have to “win” the things that you want.
Go for a walk at the end of the day
Taking a walk at the end of the day will help you clear your head. It will also give you some time to yourself so that you can process what’s been going on in your life and take care of what needs to be taken care of.
The happiest people in the world are those who are making positive changes in their lives. To be happy, you need to do two things. You need to change your thoughts and you need to do something about your emotions. If you make these 10 small changes, you will be so happy that you will thank me for writing this article.
