How to be Happy

How to be happy?

Happiness is often thought of as a by-product, but it is also a motivator.

For instance, while I m always looking for methods to improve my own productivity, I believe the best way to become more efficient is simply to be happier. People that are happy are more productive.

Isn t it easier said than done? Many changes are quite simple actually.

Below are top 5 scientifically proven ways how you can become happier:

EXERCISE:

Exercise has such a positive impact on our happy mood and well-being that this is an effective antidepressant.

You shouldn t have to be depressed to reap the benefits of exercise. Even if you do not really lose weight, exercise helps you relax, improve your mental ability, and even enhance your self-image.

We ve already looked at what exercise does to our brain, such as the release of proteins and hormones which make us happy.

Individuals who exercised felt much better regarding their physique even though they experienced no physical improvements, according to a study published in the Journal of Health Psychology.

SLEEP:

We all know that sleep aids our bodies in recovering the day and repairing themselves, as well as allowing us to concentrate and become more productive. Sleep, it turns out, is essential for happiness.

The amygdala processes negative stimuli, while the hippocampus processes happy or neutral memories. The hippocampus is more affected by sleep loss than the amygdala. As a result, sleep-deprived individuals struggle to recall pleasurable memories while recalling depressing ones with ease.

A study published in the BPS Research Digest shows that sleep influences our vulnerability to negative feelings.

FAMILY and FRIENDS

Even for introverts, social time is quite crucial when it comes to boosting our happiness. Several studies have discovered that spending time with family and friends has a significant impact on our happiness.

Relationships and how we aid others were crucial determinants in living long and happy lives, according to the Terman study, which was reported in The Longevity Project.

HELP OTHERS

One of the most perplexing bits of advice ever given was that you must help others to make yourself happier. In fact, if we want to enrich our lives, we should devote 100 hours each year to assisting others.

We are happier when we spend money on others rather than on ourselves. This is way may Research suggests that volunteering brings about a huge wave of well-being, happiness, and confidence.

SMILE

Smiling can make people feel better, but it works best when accompanied with happy ideas.

According to a new study done, customer-service personnel who fake smiles all day have a bad attitude and retreat from work, which affects productivity. Employees that smile as a result of positive thoughts about a vacations or trips or a child s performance, on the other hand, enhance their emotions and retreat less.

Smiling can help you cope with the tension of a difficult circumstance. The face feedback hypothesis is a term used by psychologists to describe this phenomenon. Simply forcing a smile although we do not even feel like it can help us feel better.

Other tips to be happy include:

  • Be Grateful.
  • Let go of grudges.
  • Practice self-care.
  • Enjoy Nature.
  • Watch Comedy Movies.
  • Give compliments.
  • Eat good Food.

And finally:

  • Consider Therapy!

If you have tried enough and still cannot overcome sad feelings and emotions, in order to achieve happiness, we recommend seeing a therapist for your issues. An online therapist can help you understand your feeling and emotions and overcome the negative feelings.
