It’s International Happiness Day! And, on this day, we decided to reflect upon one of the most searched questions ”How to be a happier person? All of us must have searched for this question twice or more in our lives. Why? Happiness is the reason that keeps us going and makes us survive the toughest times. Being happy is an art, and slowly and steadily, you can embrace it. To help you in doing so, we have listed down ways to become a happier person. Jot them down, practice them and become the master of it!
Make a Gratitude Journal
Let’s start with the basics. God has showered a plethora of blessings in form of your family, friends and partner. Start writing about the things or people that make you feel happy and be grateful for them. Make it a daily habit and note down the things that brought a smile to your face.
Spend time with yourself
The most important way of being happy is to know yourself and be okay with spending time alone. Depending on others may lead to sadness. So, be with yourself and know what is bothering you or what makes you happy.
Practise Self Love
Give yourself some love and be happy about the person you are. Pamper yourself with gifts or flowers, read your favourite book, or just sit on your balcony and enjoy the view. Basically, you are worth it, and only you can keep yourself happy.
Stay Busy in Doing what you Love
We all have hobbies or activities that keep us busy and happy. Do them often and let go of the stress you keep struggling with.
Keep Negative People Away
You know it. Some people make your soul unhappy. You should never allow such people in your life. Whether it is the toxic ex or the mean friend, let them go.
Meditation grounds you and makes you connect with yourself. It calms you down and gives you the patience of handling everything with a smile. Meditate daily for 5 to 10 minutes and get ready to get your happy self back.
Dance or Exercise
Admit it. Dancing on Punjabi beats or jazzy songs instantly makes you happier. What are you waiting for? Do it often and get your gleaming smile and inner happier self back.
Make a Routine
It is true. A person who has a routine is focused. They have a lot of time to practise all of the above things. Everything is related, and so are our ways. Get up early and sleep on time. Keep the happy hormones kicking by taking a morning walk and sleeping on time.
