3 Quick Ways To Add Happiness to Each Day

“There is no path to happiness. Happiness is the path.”

Buddha
  1. Start a gratitude journal. What does this mean? Every week either write down or say out loud three things you are grateful for. They can be three overall things in your life or three things that happened in the past week. There are no rules but each week try to come up with three new things. I like to add a weekly reminder in my phone so I don’t forget to do this. It is a nice way to reflect on the week.
  2. Smile! I know this sounds simple but I swear when I smile I feel better, even if I have to force the smile. So when things get crazy at work or life, pause, take a deep breath, and smile. It’s not a miracle cure but it may help.
  3. Meditate! I know meditation is super trendy right now and it IS hard at first but it seriously has helped me so much. I do it first thing every morning for about 10-15 minutes and it helps me start each morning in a calm mood and also react less to day to day inconveniences or annoyances. Less anger=more happiness!

What are some ways you add happiness to your life?

  1. Love the idea of a gratitude journal. I often take the wonderful things that happen in my life for granted. I am going to start one this week!
