Feel Your Best Tip: Two Ways To Be Happier Immediately
5/8/16 — Happiness is closely linked with mindset and level of positivity. In today’s tip, I share two ways to give yourself a positivity boost.
First: sing or dance. Make this as expressive as possible, even if it’s just for 30 seconds, you’re completely by yourself, and you really don’t feel like it.
Action changes the way we feel. Don’t wait until you feel like dancing or belting a tune. Do it, and see how it shifts your mood.
Second: mentally list a bunch of things you’re grateful for. Nothing is too small. You can even look around the room and go from there. “I’m grateful for this comfy couch.” “I’m grateful for the brightness in this room.” List a good 10-15 things.
Gratitude is a pathway out of pits. I believe the percentage of time we’re grateful is pretty darn close to the percentage of time we’re happy.
I know from experience these tricks can give you a positivity surge, and the more we get that level up, the better everything works out!
