Happiness is a state of mind. Someone once said: Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect, but it means that you decided to look beyond the imperfections. These days we often get stuck in a routine and we need a reminding to pull us out and remind us that life is beautiful and that we have many reasons to be happy people.
We know that happiness is something precious, and when life becomes difficult there are still many reasons for us to keep a sense of hope and smile on our face. This post is for all those who want to return the joy and the strength in their life. We’ve compiled a list of 10 things to be happy about, and they are completely free. These are 10 reasons that will remind us that we need to be happy and to keep the smile throughout the day, even when we go through tough moments.
Every person is creative. Relive some of your long-forgotten talents. Draw or paint something, take a photograph, write a poem or play something on the piano. If you have children write an interesting story for them or prepare them some exotic dish. Do whatever makes you feel happy and relaxed.
Stop the time
Close your eyes only for a second. Smell the flower that’s on the table, look in the sky, pay attention to the beauty of small things that we ignore every day. It may sound funny to you, but scientists say that you will be less depressed.
Love and be loved
Don’t let the kiss with your loved one to turn into a ritual and to lose its charm. When you kiss your partner, close your eyes and forget about all your problems. A tight hug can also have a positive impact on your self-respect and gives you a sense that you’re loved.
Do something unexpected
Instead of walking the same path after work, which by the way you know it by heart, opt for another path and don’t think about the mess that is waiting for you at home. Walking is an extremely healthy activity, but it will also have a positive effect on your mood.
For a moment forget the envy and praise some of your colleagues. Tell her that is very well dressed today and show how thrilled you are by her outfit. Believe me, not only her but you will also feel much better. Who would have guessed?
Write a letter
Surely there is a person to whom you intend to write for a long time. No matter if it is your grandmother, your aunt or some friend from elementary school. Write a letter or e-mail and cheer up that person, make her feel special and you will feel happy too!
Wake up the child inside you
Everyone of us sometimes feels like a little kid, we draw a heart on the blurred window or we want to watch a cartoon on television, but because of our age or our profession we can not afford it. We are adults with a lot of problems on our mind. But allow yourself sometimes to act childish. You will not lose your reputation but it will put a smile on your face, and the environment will consider you as cute.
A smile heals everything
A smile except that opens all doors, will have a positive effect on you and people around you. Laughter is the best medicine for all and makes you feel better. It has been proved that a smile from a complete stranger make us feel wonderful. Be that stranger sometimes and smile someone you’ve met in the shop or on the street. You will be surprised how you will feel afterwards.
Spend time with yourself
Devote one weekend to yourself, and instead of cleaning the house indulge in something you will like to do. Turn off the phone for a few hours, stay longer in the bath, play your favorite music, watch your favorite movie, read a good book, make yourself a new hairstyle, change the color of your nail polish – just take time to do something you like and makes you happy. After just a few hours you will feel like reborn. Not to mention how it will affect your appearance.
Be happy because you’re alive
Least but not least – just be happy because you’re alive. You woke up this morning – so be happy because you’re alive, you’re beautiful, you’re loved… Instead of wasting time complaining all the time, just notice the small things around you. Be happy and keep the smile on your face always!
