5 Easy Ways to Get Happier Now

  1. Donate your time. Spend your time helping out those who are less fortunate than you. Get your mind off yourself and focus on others and their needs.
  2. Simplify your life. Get rid of a bunch of your stuff. If you haven’t used it or worn it in the last year you don’t need it. It is totally fine to get rid of nice things. You don’t need as much stuff as you think and it will never make you happy
  3. Have meaningful conversations with friends. Go beyond the usual surface talk. Don’t just discuss the latest reality TV episode. Ask meaningful questions to really know how they are doing. Be open with your friends about your struggles. Don’t be afraid to be honest and vulnerable.
  4. Practice Gratitude. Recognize all of the blessings in your life. You have much to be thankful for even if you don’t realize it. Realize that every day of life is a gift.
  5. Do something Creative. Try different things. Don’t be afraid to mess up. Try drawing or coloring or even singing. It is actually fine if you are not good at it. Stretch yourself and don’t be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone.
