5 Top Tips to Living a Happier Life


Hey everyone, I am going to share a few tips on how I think we can add a little bit more happiness into our lives.

1. SMILE MORE

First tip is an obvious one but how often do you actually smile? I know I don't do it enough. Last month in the gym a personal trainer came over to me and asked if I was ok? I was like 'yea, why?' and he said its because I looked really serious and annoyed lol My response to that was 'oh, thats just my gym face!' but I was fine, I wasn't annoyed at all. Since then it really did make me think about my facial expressions. You could be walking around with a really grumpy face on and not even realise it! Smiling as you talk to people sends out really happy vibes, whatever mood your in can affect other people so create happiness and put a smile on every morning :-D As your going about your day try and smile very slightly so it becomes a natural thing and when people look at you they will automatically get a great vibe, we don't want that resting 'bitch face' ...as they say! It is crazy how much a smile can change the way you feel. Try it! :-D :-D :-D

2. DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE

We only have one life, YOLO and all that! Make sure you do something that you love and do this at least once a day. Wether it's cuddling your pet, sticking a good film on or going to the gym? Make sure you fit something into your day to really lift your mood and make you feel happy.


3. MEDITATION

This can be something you can add into your weekly routines. It is great for relaxing your mind and body. It's great to do maybe 5-10 minutes in the morning so it sets you off for a great day. I recently found an app which is great for if your new as it has a free trial of 10 sessions. A voice guy goes through the session with you to help you learn and get the best from it. It's also a great way to see if you like meditation. I noticed how much happier my mood is if I meditate in the morning. The app if you wanna check it out is called Headspace.


4. EXERCISE & HEALTHY EATING

Another obvious one, but just a bit of daily exercise can change your mood completely. It releases chemicals into the body called endorphins. They trigger a positive feeling in your body and interact with the receptors in your brain to reduce the sense of pain. Also think about what your eating, foods all have different benefits that they give to your body. Eat good = Feel good.
Still though, having that slice of cake or chocolate bar can also make you feel good :-) As long as it's not 10 bars, i've experienced chocolate comas plenty of times and its not fun!


5. LAUGH DAILY

Laughing relaxes the body and relieves tension and stress. If you can, try and laugh at least once a day and it will start to effect your overall mood. I like to stick a comedy film on, a funny youtube video or just anything that makes me LOL! It is similar to the first point I said which is to smile daily but laughing is just the next step up from that and it can also boost your immune system helping to defend you from infection or illness.


So there could be many more things to add but these were the top 5 that came into my head first and things that I feel i've started putting into action. I hope some of these helped you in some way, if you have any to add that you think are really important to know then please share them in the comments below. I would love to know more ways to be a happier person and we can all be happy together in the comments :-D hehe!
