17 Little Ways  To Live A Happier Life

I really believe that you can choose to be happy. One of my favorite quotes and words to live by: “Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.” Happiness is something that we all strive for, but so many of us find it challenging to grasp and even harder to maintain. There are ways to boost your mood instantly and other little things you can do to live a happier life, starting now!


4 Surprising Ways Stress Can Sneak Up On You


Don’t let stress get to you! Not only does it make you feel frustrated and anxious, it can actually cause sicknesses. Doing yoga and meditating helps me to calm my mind, but we can do more to clear our lives from unnecessary stress factors. Here are some of those small things that might be triggering your stress levels:

1. You’re surrounded by clutter
When the space you live or work in is cluttered, you’re adding unnecessary tension to your life. Apparently because of how your brain processes visual information, it will automatically think “chaos” (even if you know exactly where everything is). This will affect your ability to focus, make you distracted and even slow down your knack for interpreting information. So put on your cleaning music and take out some time today to reorganize your space. Minimize the clutter and your brain will thank you for it.


5-Minute Instant Happiness


You might be surprised, but happiness is purely internal, a state of being that you can create for yourself! Therefore by tricking your brain into thinking it’s happy, you will feel happier! So if you’re having a bad day at work or simply need a little mid-day pick-me-up, here are a few things that helps put a smile on my face, and hopefully will do the same for you.

1. Look at old photos
Look back at old vacation photos, party pictures, or any pictures of good times with loved ones! I like to keep pictures on my work desk to remind me of those memories.

2. Look at photos of cute animals
Buzzfeed’s “animal” section is my best friend on a rainy day. How can you be grumpy after all the cuteness-overload?!

3. Listen to upbeat music
Music always puts me in a great mood. Make a happy playlist when you have time and blast it when you’re feeling down! Move to the beat and the next thing you know, your anxiety will melt away.
