In life, some days are good and some days are bad. But what if we told you that it is possible for you to make every day a great one.
Don’t believe us? Well, science does and has even found ways for you to have happy days. All you’ve got to do is to inculcate the following research-backed happiness hacks in your daily routine and brush your teeth well so you can flaunt the resulting smile in full swing:
Try ‘em to believe ‘em.
1. Take care of your body
Kickstart your day with exercise or at least make sure you’re working out or pursuing a physical activity (however big or small) every day. Doing so can boost your happy hormones, endorphins, and keep you in a good mood all day.
Not to mention, eat well and eat healthy. Because a balanced diet can keep you active and energetic the entire day, so you can accept any challenge that comes your way with full force.
2. Put on a killer outfit
There’s no sorrow in the world that a head-turning dress and a red lipstick can’t drown. Even according to a study conducted at the University of Hertfordshire, United Kingdom, dressing well can make you feel better. So, what makes you think anything can come in the way of you killing it in that dress and ruin your day?
3. Spend time with your loved ones
According to a study published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, spending time with your trusted friends and family members can boost your mental health and make you feel happier and more secure in life. Now, imagine doing that every day. Stop smiling and go, spend time with them, NOW!
4. Don’t forget to spend time with yourself though
Take a long walk alone in the park, indulge in some meditation or daydreaming, and do whatever it is that you enjoy to feel like your day is complete. Doing so can give you time to introspect and help you form a fresh perspective towards life as per a landmark study from Harvard University.
5. Make a reasonable to-do list
Having your goals or tasks for the day clearly laid out in front of you can make it easier for you to accomplish them during the day by giving you a clarity of thought. But when you sit down to pen those tasks, make sure they’re achievable, so that you can stick to the schedule, tick the tasks off your to-do list, and feel satisfied with your day.
