How To Be Happy in 10 Ways

Updated on August 22, 2016

10 Ways to be Happy

Happiness is defined as a state of well-being and contentment. Being happy leads us to the different side of the world where everything just fall into place. However, some people find it hard to stress out some of their worries and just be happy. Here are ten simple ways to eliminate those bad vibes in you and embrace the true meaning of happiness.

1. Be yourself. Don’t let others judge you by trying to be someone else. Let them judge you by being yourself. If they can’t take your worst, then they don’t deserve your best. Never imitate someone just because she is prettier, smarter, more popular, more deserving, etc, instead work on yourself to be better and more capable of doing things that can make you happy.

2. Think positively. Invite good vibes on your thoughts every now and then. Being optimistic is the only way to lessen the dilemma that you have. If school works seems to be stressful, boost yourself and think that it will help you build a good future for you. And everything will be all worth the sacrifice.

3. Find an inspiration. Family is the best example for an inspiration. But if you think it is too mushy and way too good to be think of, then find another inspiration who can make your heart thump every day. Your hollywood crush probably. Trust me; he will really be a good source of inspiration.

4. Smile. Lift your cheeks without using your hand. If you think you carry all the baggage on your shoulders and you can’t handle the pain anymore, just remember to smile. Besides, it takes only just a second to do it. And if you make it a habit to wear even just a simple smile every day, you will really feel less worried and unsurprisingly become happy.

5. Do One Thing At A Time. Multitasking is a good thing for those who can afford to widen themselves as to where one thing should it be. However, according to Edward Suarez, Ph.D., associate professor of medical psychology at Duke, people who multitask are more likely to have high blood pressure. Instead of writing while talking to somebody over a phone, sit back on a comfortable chair and focus on the conversation. It can help not only on the aspect of being happy but also on the part of respecting the person on the other the line.

6. Accept What You Have. Contentment is the key to happiness. Be satisfied on what you have today for it will reflect on what you will have tomorrow. Don’t aim for something just because others have it, because you envy them. Strive for realistic goals and be happy with it. You must accept things as they come.

7. Don’t Compare. Max Ehrmann, on his poem Deciderata, says,” If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.” Just think about it, if you’re going to compare yourself, you will just be stressed and depressed, and even worse, you will just pull yourself down on your knee.

8. Live For Today. Never let your past spoils your present. Leave your failures and don’t look back on it. It may be the reflection of your future but remember not to stick with it because things that went wrong before will never be alright today. Happy people live for the now. If you can’t be happy today, what makes you think tomorrow will be different?

9. Be Friendly. The easiest way to gain extreme happiness is to be with your friends who can make you burst out loud laughing. There are a lot of advantages on having plenty of friends. They can help you become jolly person. But make sure that this people will not leave on your side whenever you will need a shoulder to lean on.

10. Count Your Blessings. Not because you already achieve the happiness that you are longing to have, doesn’t mean you will no longer remember to count every blessing that he gave you. You will only feel complete if you’ll learn to count and thank God for all the blessings that you receive on your everyday life. Remember, people who pause each day to reflect on some positive aspect of their lives (their health, friends, family, freedom, education, etc.) experience a heightened sense of well-being.
