10 Ways to be Happy Instantly

When life throws lemons at you, you take the lemons and make some lemonade! That has always been my way of going through life and dealing with things. I refuse to dwell on negatives and I make the most of what I do have. But then again, let’s be real. It can be very hard sometimes to be happy and stay happy. Now that I look back at most of the things I worried about and what kept me up at night, there was no need for the worry. I wish I knew that back then.

Here are 10 ways to be happy instantly, if you want.

 

Count your Blessings

Counting my many blessings always makes me so happy. I could be having a bad day, but once I start to list my blessings one by one, I remember how lucky I am. I try to write down 10 things I am grateful for every week and it lifts my mood instantly.

 

Speak with a Loved One

I like to speak with my close friends and family when I feel low. It boasts my mood instantly and reduces my stress levels. A good chit-chat is always good.

 

Play with the Kids

Playing with my kids always leaves me feeling good and drained. Whenever I feel low and frustrated, I just ignore the work and chores, and play with them. I enjoy seeing the world through their eyes.

 

Say a Prayer

I like to say a prayer whenever I feel unhappy. Praying about whatever is troubling me helps to put my mind at ease. It works every time.

 

Exercise

Exercise helps me feel amazing. A good workout puts me in a fantastic mood. I am currently on top of my fitness routine thanks to the very useful GymCube fitness website. It has been a lifesaver as I can work out conveniently anytime from the comfort of my home, and feel amazing. I am working on strengthening and defining my body, and I am beginning to notice the difference already. You can join me on my fitness journey with GymCube. There are various packages available, so go have a look on the website.

Listen to Music

Music is like food to my soul. I have always been a huge lover of music. I love listening to my African Jams, Pop, Country, Rhythm & Blues, and even country. Music has the power to lift my mood.

 

Be Kind to Someone

Being extra nice to someone makes me very happy. I like putting a smile on as many people’s faces as possible. Making others happy makes me happy.

 

Plan a Holiday

Having an upcoming holiday makes me feel very giddy. The adrenaline rush I get just thinking about vacations planned is the best thing ever! It puts me in a happy mood instantly.

 

Eat a good happy meal

Eating a good meal puts me in a great mood. The saying – A hungry woman is an angry woman, is so true.

 

Keep Smiling

Like I said in the beginning of this post, regardless of how I feel, I don’t dwell on the negatives. I like to wear a smile on my face and be happy.

 

How do you stay happy?

  1. Love the advice, so true when life throws you lemons make lemonade! Next time I’m feeling low I will be sure to do somethings that you recommend.

  2. Haha planning a holiday ALWAYS makes me happy. What’s not to be happy about a forthcoming trip away. Aside from that my son, hubby, dog and music would be high on the list too!

  3. Lovely post as always, Stella!
    These are all good advices. When I am sad or angry about something I find that exercising and cleaning house helps. That helps to arrange thoughts in more positive light.
