10 Ways to Be Happier

Renee Woodruff

I just discovered the website, happier.com and thought these 10 tips were great reminders of things we can do to put a little pick-me-up in our day. Some days are just a little tougher than others and from time to time a friendly reminder on the art of happiness never hurts. 

Try it for yourself.

 No, for real, try it!

Smile!

Just flexing those muscles tells your brain you’re happier.

Go Outside

As little as 20 minutes outdoors is a proven mood-booster.

Be Generous

Amidst all the research, being kind remains the the best way to increase feelings of well-being.

Record Happy Moments

Writing it down really does increase the impact on your life.

Flex Your Talents

We just feel better when we exercise our strengths.

Try Something New

Those who continue learning new things are happier than those who don’t.

Set Goals

Both the goal-setting and progress towards them elevates our mood.

Sleep More

6 hours a day can keep depression away!

Say Thank You

These two words increase both gratitude and kindness, and therefore, happiness.

Give Hugs

When you give ‘em, you get ‘em, and you feel better.

 

Procrastinate Better.

Renee Woodruff

I loved this tip from the article, "10 Genius Tricks to Make Your Workday Awesome."

Procrastinate better.  

How many of us are guilty of sitting on our computers or tablets mindlessly scrolling through Pinterest or our Facebook feed? Or in my fiancees' case, consuming multiple articles from the internet and then filling my inbox with them for me to read so we can discuss?

As the article states, "Completely cutting procrastination from your life would be a pipe dream. And, we're not trying to set you up to fail here. But Kogan says you should "avoid spending endless hours on social networks or just aimlessly browsing online. Instead, set a goal to learn something news -- check out new recipes, new websites, or read something from a section of your fave website that you rarely visit. Learning new things makes you happier, and will help you avoid the 'ugh' feeling of wasted time."
