How to be happier

Well there's a mantra to live by!

Here's 10 tips to increase your happiness level:

1. Exercise more – 7 minutes might be enough
2. Sleep more – you’ll be less sensitive to negative emotions
3. Move closer to work – a short commute is worth more than a big house
4. Spend time with friends and family – don’t regret it on your deathbed
5. Go outside – happiness is maximized at 57°F
6. Help others – 100 hours a year is the magical number
7. Practice smiling – it can alleviate pain
8. Plan a trip – but don’t take one
9. Meditate – rewire your brain for happiness
10. Practice gratitude – increase both happiness and life satisfaction

Quick last fact: Getting older will make yourself happier

To only one that left me scratching my head was #8.

I'm going to try to post every day in October.  I really haven't been a faithful blogger, and October is National Blog Posting Month.  This is day 2, my day 1 post is on Loves Books and Tea.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,

  1. Good luck with the blogging everyday. #8 gave me pause too, I think the dreaming part is what makes you happy, but travel can be stressful, so Dream On.
