Simple Tips for a Happier Life


We all want to live a long and happy life. But, for most people, happiness fluctuates. It can be difficult to feel happy when you have a stressful job, family issues or are feeling burnt out. 

Of course, you can’t expect happiness all the time. We all have good days and bad days. However, there are simple ways to live a happier life. How can you feel a little more joy from day to day?

Be more spiritual

Spirituality means something different for everyone, but most agree that it involves caring about something bigger than ourselves. So, why will being more spiritual make you happier? Spirituality means tuning into your thoughts, feelings and emotions and gaining a deeper understanding of why you’re feeling a certain way. Many spiritual people meditate, speak to psychics (via for example) and focus on helping others. Accepting that there is more to life than yourself and your problems helps to see a bigger picture and practice peace and kindness.  

Care about the environment

We all know about environmental issues and worry about what the future holds. It can be difficult to feel happy when you feel like the world is slowly deteriorating and there’s nothing you can do about it. But that’s simply not true. We are all responsible in reducing carbon emissions and preventing global warming. So, are you doing anything actively to help? Happiness often means being proactive and making a difference, even on the day to day. So, take every day to be a little better. That might mean reducing waste and cleaning more sustainably, bringing plastic bags to the supermarket or reducing your meat intake. You’ll feel happier knowing you’re making a difference. 

Be more sociable

Whether you’re an introvert, extrovert, or mixture of the two, we all need human interaction in our lives. When we’re holed up at home or stuck in the office and miss yet another social outing, we forget what it means to have fun. We become so used to spending time with ourselves and our habits that we don’t see the value in socializing anymore. However, you won’t live a happy life if you never see your friends. Good friends make us laugh and forget our troubles. They make us feel good about ourselves. A happy life relies on social interaction and taking time away from the stresses we feel every day.  

Treat yourself more

Most of us aren’t treating ourselves enough. We feel naughty having that piece of cake or buying that top. We tell ourselves we can’t have an early night when there’s that big meeting tomorrow, or take that bath because the laundry isn’t done. We’re constantly forcing ourselves to be restrained, because we don’t think we’ve done enough to deserve a treat. But this is a bad attitude. We all need to treat ourselves and take a little time out. You don’t need an excuse to eat a piece of cake.
