Listen to music
Your favourite song has the most profound effect on you, have you noticed? Turn it up. Go wild. Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one can hear.
Connect with nature
Go for a walk or even just find somewhere lovely to sit and observe the world for a while. Things move too fast. Just stop, embrace the busy, feel the wind in your hair and hear the rustle of the trees.
Learn something new
New skills give you the power to control new things. Learn something that will help you master an area of your life. Look at mindfulness, happiness, finances or a language.
Smiling is the simplest thing you can do to feel happy. I relaxes the face. Stretches the muscles, and fires off the neurotransmitters releasing happy hormones. Try it in front of the mirror and watch as you feel better by the moment.
Tell someone you love them
Vulnerability is the greatest strength. And it comes with the greatest rewards. Try it. Share it with a friend. Someone you’ve never said it to before or someone you haven’t said it to often enough. It’s ok to practise in front of the mirror.
