We all have bad days but we also have the power to make them better! Here are 7 ways to make your day a little bit happier.
1. Treat yourself
You deserve something special, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve done anything special for yourself. Buy yourself a new outfit, treat yourself to a nice lunch or just take a few extra minutes of quiet time. You’ve earned it.
2. Make time for things you love
Take some time out of your day to do something you love. Maybe an hour for a yoga class or twenty minutes to read a book before bed. Schedule it if you have to, just make sure you take the time to do it.
3. Listen to good music
Put on your favorite upbeat song and dance a little! You’ll be feeling happier in no time.
4. Go for a walk
Taking a walk around a beautiful place can really make you feel good. Plus, you’re getting some exercise, fresh air and you get to appreciate the beauty of nature. Take your dog if you have one. Speaking of dogs….
5. Play with a pet
Pets can really make you feel good. Snuggling with your dog or having your cat curl up in your lap makes things seem just a little bit better. Even watching your fish can add beauty to your life.
6. Look for the good
A quick way to feel good about your life is to look around and find things that you are grateful for or things you love. There is always something to be grateful for and probably something you can think of that you love. There is so much good in our lives, we just have to look for it.
7. Make someone else’s day happier
It’s so true, doing something for someone else does make you feel good. Seeing the smile on someone’s face or hearing how grateful they are for what you did makes you feel like your doing something worthwhile with your life. You don’t have to do anything big, something as small as buying a homeless person lunch can make a big difference.
