I’ll skip the obvious by not asking if you could use a few tips to make your life happier and healthier. Instead, I’ll reveal to you some simple and yet effective ways to have this highly desirable kind of life. 

1. Don’t Pay Too Much Attention To People’s Opinions Of You

It’s simple; what people think of you is none of your business. If you make it your business, you will never be happy.

2. Don’t Hate And Hold Grudges

Life is far too short for such things. Forget the bad and focus on happier days ahead.

3. Don’t Be Too Serious

Nobody will be as serious about you, anyway. So, learn to have some fun.

4. Don’t Gossip

It’s a waste of time and energy. And gossiping means putting too much focus on another person’s life, and that will never be of any help to you.

Gossip brings with it lots of negativity, and that’s an arch-enemy of happiness.

5. Make An Effort To Make At Least Three People Happy Every Day.

Do you want to know why this will make you happy? Because chances are very slim that you would make someone happy without making yourself happy as well.

Happiness, as they say, is infectious. You can’t pass it along without some of it rubbing off on you.  

6. Read More Books

Every month, strive to read more, and you will be happier as a result.

7. Don’t Wait Till You Sleep To Start Dreaming

I believe this is pretty self-explanatory. Contemplate the beautiful future you could have.

8. Meditate For At Least 10 Minutes Each Day.

This is important, and if you are too busy, you can make that 20 minutes.

9. Don’t Stick To Interacting With People Your Age

It’s easy being friends with people your age. Learn to enjoy time with small kids and much older people to get a great perspective on life.

10. Learn To Pick Your Fights

Whenever you get into an argument with someone, don’t focus on winning every time. You can agree to disagree and move on with life without stressing yourself out.

11. Take Charge Of Your Own Happiness

Nobody will come and make you happy. You have to find happiness on your own.

That means making an effort so you can improve your life and your health because nobody else will. Not even those who love you can make you happy if you don’t make the effort yourself.

12. Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

That will never do you any good. The life you have is your own.

Many people stress themselves out because their lives don’t compare to people they shared the same socio-economic stage of life with at some points in their lives. If you can avoid this trap, you can be much happier in this life.

See, it’s very simple finding happiness in this life. All you need to do is make a few changes to your life and health and happiness will be within your grasp.
