5. Positive thoughts
Never, ever underestimate the power of positive thoughts. The best way to actually realise how much power your thoughts have over your happiness is to tune into them and be conscious of how they make you feel. Do you know them days that you just don't feel good about yourself, you hate how your make-up looks, you don't like your outfit and you just don't feel good about yourself. You spend that whole day feeling insecure. So, imagine if you turn could turn those negative thoughts into positive ones, just think how much more happier you could be.
I will do a whole post on this topic because I think it deserves it but for now, just start being more conscious of what you're thinking and how it's effecting you.
Exercise is a big one. Firstly, it releases endorphins which make you feel happy. It gives you more energy and for me, it really clears my head and makes me feel good about myself. You don't have to do much, you could just do a ten minute workout every day or even just do 30 crunches when you wake up. Don't feel bad for not doing much, feel happy that you're taking time to do something to better your happiness.
7. Fresh air
I don't know about you but I definitely notice I feel less happy if I'm constantly staying inside cooped up. So, I've been making an effort to go outside and do something every single day which has really increased my happiness. You don't have to do much, maybe you could pop to the shop to get some coffee or go out on a walk. If you're not feeling up to going outside then just stick your head out of a window and breathe the fresh air in. No matter what, make sure that you feel that air everyday. It's seriously good for you.
