I think we could all use a little additional injection of happiness right now, especially as the second wave of the pandemic is upon us and the holidays look different than years past.

Here are a few tips to inject more happiness in to your everyday life.

  • Smile more – studies price smiling the mere act of smiling makes you happier
  • Sleep
  • Workout, meditate – get moving!
  • Listen to music – right now I’ve got my holiday playlist on repeat 24/7
  • Give compliments
  • Perform a daily act of kindness
  • Help others and your community
  • Take joy in other people’s success (and promote them)
  • Share your knowledge/teach someone 
  • Spend time with family and friends
  • Get rid of clutter
  • Be grateful
  • Think of happy memories from the past
  • Look through old photos – make albums on your phone to quickly sort them
  • Do things that make you happy and say no to things that don’t 
  • Spend time with pets. You can borrow mine if you want!

I’d love to hear what you’re doing to keep your spirits high right now.
