You want to be happy, don’t you? And even if you are already happy, I doubt there ever comes a time when you say you don’t want to be happier than you already are. 

So, keep reading.

The truth is that unhappy people want to be happy, and happy people are looking for ways to be happier. Here’s how it’s done.

1. Make Plans For The Following Day

You don’t have to spend hours agonizing over how you will spend each minute of the following day.

Just create a simple plan like deciding what clothes to wear, when to get up, or have a rough estimate of what you intend to accomplish the next day and you will be good to go.

2. Read A Bit

This is according to research, which claims that a little reading before bedtime can enhance your health substantially. The book you read doesn’t matter – it could be fact or fiction, as long as it really engages your mind.

When your mind is so occupied by what you are reading, you will have less stress and have a more restful sleeping experience. That, as you know, will make your day much happier.

3. Spend Time With Family

Before you call it a night, spend more time with family creating a bond with them. If your partner is your whole family, chat a little with them.

If you have kids, tell them a bedtime story or two, and if it’s just your buddy, you can share a beer or watch a game together before retiring into bed.

4. Have A Journal

Before they go to bed, happy people write their thoughts in a journal. Apparently, the thoughts we have before bedtime are some of the most honest, and they are often forgotten by the time we get up.

5. Focus On The Good

Before you go to bed, have happy thoughts. Don’t fall asleep when still thinking about all the things that are going wrong in your life.

Being positive will lower your stress levels, help you sleep better, and make you happier. To top it off, you will not need drugs or anything of the sort to feel happy.

Happiness is a choice, and this choice requires some action on your part. So, if you often wonder why some people are so happy all the time and have been looking for ways to be like them, above are some things you should do every day before you go to bed to enjoy a similar experience.
