12 things happy people do differently

#1 Express gratitude When you appreciate what you have, what you have appreciates in value. If we aren’t thankful for what we already have, we will have a hard tine ever being happy.

#2 Cultivate optimism People who think optimistically see the world as a place packed with endless opportunities, especially in trying times.

#3 Avoid over-thinking and social comparison Comparing yourself to others can be poisonous, The only person you should compare to is yourself before now.

#4 Practice acts of kindness Selflessly helping someone is a very powerful way to feel good inside.

#5 Nurture social relationships The happiest people on the planet are the ones who have deep, meaningful relationships

#6 Develop strategies for coping It helps to have healthy strategies for coping pre-rehearsed, on-call and at your disposal

#7 Learn to forgive Harbouring feelings of hatred and ill-will is horrible for your well-being

#8 Increase “flow” experiences Flow is a state in which it feels like time has stood still. It’s when you’re so focused on what you’re doing that you become one with the task. Nothing is distracting you or competing with your focus.

#9 Savour life’s little joys Take pleasure from the little things, like being up early enough to see the sunrise, or lots of green lights on the way to work or flowers in a garden. Deep happiness cannot happen without slowing down to enjoy.

#10 Commit to your goals Magical things start to happen when we commit ourselves to doing whatever it takes to get to where we want to be. Remember, a goal without a deadline is merely a wish.

#11 Practice spirituality When we practice spirituality, we realise that life is way bigger than us. We give up the silly notion that we are the mightiest thing ever. It’s good to be humble now and then.

#12 Take care of your body Taking care of your body is crucial to being the happiest person you can be.
