Have you ever sat around and thought about what makes other people’s lives so great that they seem happy most of the time? You’ve probably decided they’ve been dealt better cards than you have, right?

You might be surprised to learn that many people are happy not because of how things are for them but because they make the best of what they have.

Most likely, that happiness you see comes from a more profound sense of inner peace.

How can you find that kind of calm?

There are simple things you can do every day that will automatically make you feel better.

When you do things that make you feel better, you end up happier and more at ease. There will be more happy times for sure.

These ideas are great for getting you to a happy place, no matter what your situation is:

Idea #1: Keep Yourself Busy – Your mood will often worsen when you have too much time to sit around and do nothing. If you let it, your mind will go to dark places if you don’t keep it busy.

Keep your mind and body busy, so you don’t have much time to think about bad things.

– Take on more tasks at work, so you don’t have as much free time.

– Do community service to fill your time with things that are good for you.

Idea #2: Think About The Good Times You’ve Had – If you’re honest, you’ll know that your spirit wasn’t always this way. We’re not saying you should live in the past, but you’ve probably been happy with people or things in the past. Remember what makes you happy and try to find more of it, a new “happy.”

– Remind yourself of happy times so your feelings can come back.

Remember when you got your diploma? That must have made you feel good, right?

How about the bachelorette party for your best friend, and how much fun you all had?

Idea #3: Sing Loudly – Choose songs that make you feel good and have a good message. Turn the radio as loud as your neighbors let you, and sing along. Soon, you’ll be dancing to the beat and getting caught up in what the song is saying.

Idea #4: Get Your Sweat On – Exercise is a surefire way to get endorphins out of your body and make you feel good. When you work up a sweat, your body feels alive and full of energy.

– When you’re working out, think about the good things in your life.

– Go for a run with your neighbor around the block a few times a week.

– Plan to do chores and other physically active things on the weekend.

Idea #5: Spend Time With People Who Make You Feel Good – Spend a lot of time with friends and family with the positive attitude you want. Spending more time with them will make you feel happier more often.

It’s important to realize that you are the only one who can make you happy. You have to choose to be happy. Once you’ve decided you want to follow that path to happiness, these things can help you get there much faster. Enjoy the wonderful life you’ve been given.
