Its Monday – doom and gloom day for many. But not me, I love Mondays!
New week, new possibilities and new goals to smash. Hell yeah.
To get you all through the week with a big smile on your face, I’ve put together 5 ways in which I believe you can lead a happier life.
All additional tips are welcome; just post them in the comments section J
- Surround yourself with positive, like-minded people
Positives attract positives, it’s a given! The law of Attraction is a powerful thing. If you are surrounded by negativity you will most likely become more negative.
Spend your time wisely with people who fulfill you, lift your mood and make you smile.
- Stop reading the news every day
I’m sure a lot of people will gasp at the sight of this comment. Avoid being updated on the Worlds current affairs – how could you possibly?!
However, if you want to be happier you need a News Detox. The News is filled with negativity and “brain washing” to flood people’s minds with fear and worry. Sad stories do not make for a happy mind. The world can be horrible yes, but it can also be wonderful too! Try a weekly newspaper instead of a daily one.
- Eat Healthier and do some exercise
These two go hand in hand with each other.
I know that sitting around eating chocolate bars and living off caffeine drinks for energy seems like the easier option, but feeling lethargic and fat is not something that will make you smile.
Living healthy has been proven to have a positive psychological effect on living beings. I mean, look at how happy dogs are when they’re running around chasing sticks in the park!
Get some fruit and veg down you and go for a run to boost those energy levels.
As a wise blonde lawyer once said ‘Exercise releases endorphin’s and endorphin’s make you happy’ Listen to Elle, she speaks sense.
- Try something new
Especially on the weekends! Relaxation time is important, but don’t waste the only 2 days you have off of work lying in bed!
Try out a new hobby, do a fun day with friends and family, or how about learning a new language? Knowledge is power after all.
- Travel often
“Travelling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” Hear hear.
Be rich in life and live for new experiences in new places, new cultures and new inspirations. Expand your mind as much as you can and learn and travel often.
Don’t worry, be happy. You’re alive after all, and life is beautiful thing. No matter what day of the week it is.
