Be happier, starting today! It seems as though the sun always shines upon the happiest people—they tend to be more successful in business and life, healthier and enjoy strong relationships. However, being happy takes work. Specifically, developing the positive habits that foster happiness takes work and commitment. Here are some tips to get started:
Get on the good foot. If you want to be happier, get moving as soon as you wake up. Exercise causes your brain to release feel-good chemicals. Not only that, the combination of fresh air and exercise improves your overall well-being and is a great stress buster. Relieve stress while you get happy? Who can say no to that?
Make planning your friend. The more you plan, the fewer decisions you have to make during your day. Plan your activities for the day (Referral Maker® real estate CRM makes this easy—it tells you what to do, who to call and what to say each day). Set aside your outfits for the week or wear the same basic outfit each day. Create a meal plan for breakfast, lunch and dinner each week. The fewer small decisions you have to make the more energy you have to make the big, important decisions and the happier you’ll be.
Be thankful. People who express gratitude are happier than those who don’t. It’s simple: Appreciating what you have helps you see the world in a more positive light. Get in the practice of gratitude by keeping a gratitude journal. Commit to writing down three things you’re thankful for each day before you do anything else (perhaps while your email is loading in your inbox). After a week of this practice, you may just find yourself happier than ever.
