10 Ways To Be Happier!

A few years ago, on a morning like any other, I had a sudden realization: I was in danger of wasting my life. I decided on the spot to begin a systematic study of happiness. It did. I made myself happier. And along the way, I learned a lot about how to be happier. Here are those lessons.

  1. Exercise more—7 minutes might be enough.
  2. Sleep more—you’ll be less sensitive to negative emotions.
  3. Move closer to work—a short commute is worth more than a big house.
  4. Spend time with friends and family—don’t regret it on your deathbed.
  5. Go outside—happiness is maximized outdoors.
  6. Help others—100 hours a year is the magical number.
  7. Practice smiling—it can alleviate pain.
  8. Plan a trip—try it alone.
  9. Meditate—rewire your brain for happiness.
  10. Practice gratitude— increase both happiness and life satisfaction.

I love to be happier, as I’m sure most people would, so I thought it would be interesting to find some ways to become a happier person that is actually backed up by science. All the best.
