Be happier today than you were yesterday

Relax. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Happiness is largely a choice. Feel gratitude for all of the good in your life.

Smile. Once you have enough to pay for life’s basics think to yourself: “I’ve won.” Happiness is contagious: find someone who is happy and stand close to them.

Play. Create. Happiness is attainable. Slow down and enjoy the scenery. Be spontaneous. Happiness is perched on your windowsill, invite it in.

Success is not the key to happiness; happiness is the key to success. Surround yourself with positive, life-affirming people.

Make others happy. Have big dreams. Enjoy the journey. Grab every single morsel of happiness which comes your way. Be on the look out for moments of pleasure and wonder.

Take care of your body. Be happy right here, right now, while working towards a better tomorrow. Forget about the Joneses. Forgive. Do for others. Become absorbed in activities that cause you to enter the “flow” state: that state where you forget yourself, lose track of time, and stop worrying. Develop the habit of positive self-talk. Plant a beautiful garden.

Get sunlight and fresh air. Engage your mind in a puzzle: jigsaw puzzles, sudokus, or crossword puzzles. Listen to music. Make music. Quiet your mind chatter.

Meditate.Practice yoga, tai chi, or Qigong. Get a box of six Guatemalan worry dolls: before going to bed, tell one worry to each doll and put them under your pillow; while you sleep, the dolls will take your troubles away.

Make smart money choices. View difficulties as challenges to be overcome. Remember that it’s not a good story if there aren’t any dragons.

Get involved in a cause that’s important to you. Have a cat or a dog; pet them often. Perform random acts of kindness, anonymous or not.Surround yourself with pleasant smells: jasmine, lavender, sandalwood . . . Put things in perspective. Go for a brisk walk. Stretch. Go to a museum.

Find a hobby you love. Engage in pleasurable activities.

Spend discretionary income on experiences, such as dining out and travel, instead of purchasing goods.

Count your blessings. Resolve to have a bad memory: release the past. Be yourself, however strange and weird that may be. Ask yourself: what can I do to become happier? Read a good book.

Climb on a tire swing. Be part of something bigger than yourself. Embrace change. Simplify. Think big in the long run, but think small in the short run. Remember the following line from the film “American Beauty”: “. . . it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world.”

Get rid of things that make you unhappy. Make happiness a priority in your life. Do something hedonistic: think afternoon at a spa or going out dancing.

Be curious. Engage in novel activities. Take on new skills. Learn new things. Think back to when you’ve been happiest: what were you doing? Create satisfying, meaningful connections with other people. Practice deep breathing. Savor small authentic moments that bring you contentment. Happiness is a state of mind. Have a small pleasure to look forward to every day: coffee out on the patio, going through a favorite magazine, visiting a beloved friend, baking cookies . . . Search for the sacred in the ordinary. Do a cartwheel when nobody’s looking. Take George Eliot’s declaration to heart: “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”

Laugh often. Ask for what you want. Hang a hammock; lie in it. Find work you love.Let go of fear.

Have courage. One of the greatest gifts you can give to your loved ones is to let them see you living a happy life. When you’re happy you give others permission to be happy as well.

Love. Entertain hope. Cope with difficult situations with ingenuity. Spend time contemplating nature. Accept that sometimes you’ll be sad, that’s just part of life. Make happiness the ultimate goal in your life. Fake it until you make it: act happy.

Create a serene environment. Resolve to be a little bit happier today than you were yesterday. Tilt your head back and let out a raucous peal of laughter . . .

放松。把自己看得轻一点。快乐在很大程度上,是一种选择。为你生命中所拥有的美好,心怀感激吧。

微笑。一旦你能满足自己的基本生活需求了,就在心里对自己说:“我赢了。”快乐是可以传染的:所以找些快乐的人,向他们靠拢。

玩。创造。幸福是可以通过努力获得的。放慢脚步,去欣赏沿途的风景,要发自内心的去做。快乐就栖息在你的窗槛上,把它请进来吧。成功不是快乐的必然;而快乐却是成功的关键。争取让在你身边的朋友都是些积极而又对生活持肯定态度的人。

带给别人快乐。拥有远大的理想。享受你的旅途。抓住旅途中点滴的快乐,珍惜每个开心和奇迹的瞬间。

善待自己的身体。在为了美好明天努力的同时,也要开心—就在此时,此刻,此地。安心过自己的生活,不做无谓的攀比。学会原谅,帮助他人。积极投入得去参加活动,它们会让你进入一种“流动”的状态:在这种状态里,你会忘了自己,忘了时间,也停止焦虑。养成积极的自我暗示的习惯。融于自然,给自己修一个漂亮的花园,

享受阳光和新鲜的空气。玩游戏:拼图游戏,数独游戏或填字游戏。听听音乐,玩玩音乐,让你的思绪安静下来。

沉思。

学学瑜伽,打打太极或者练练气功。在睡觉前准备一箱(6个)危地马拉忧心娃娃,告诉每个娃娃一个忧伤,然后把它们放在枕头下面,枕着它们入睡。这样,在你睡着的时候,它们就会将你的烦恼带走。

正确的对待金钱。把困难当成将要征服的挑战。要知道,好事多磨。

去做一些对你很来说重要的事情.养一只猫或狗,多宠爱他们一些。经常性的做些善事,匿不匿名都可以。让你的周围充满可人的香味:茉莉花,薰衣草,檀香木。。。用长远的眼光看待事情。去轻轻松松的散步,舒展自身,去博物馆。

找一个自己喜欢的爱好. 参加一些娱乐性的活动。

把闲钱花在体验上,比如说去外面吃吃饭,旅旅游,而不是去购物。

常想想你的幸福.做一个“健忘”的人:释怀过去。不管别人觉得你有多怪多离奇,都要坚持自己的本色。问问自己:我要做些什么,才能让自己更快乐?读一本好书。

融入快乐,摆脱疲惫:.参与一些超越自己的事项。接受改变。尽量简单。目光要长远,但是也要有近期目标。记住《美国丽人》中的一句话:当世上有这么多美好事物的时候,想要保持疯狂也难。解决掉那些让你不快的事情,让快乐成为你生命中的头等大事。做一些享受的事情:想想下午去洗个温泉浴,或者去外面跳一支舞。

保持好奇心.

参与新奇的事物:学习新技能,接触新鲜事物。当你觉得自己是最快乐,最幸福的时候,回顾一下过去:在什么情况下,你觉得最快乐,最开心?与别人创建一种双赢的,有意义的联系。练习深呼吸。尽情享受那些给你带来满足感的真实时刻。快乐是精神上的一种境界。每天都期待一点小幸福,去院子里喝喝咖啡,看看自己喜欢的杂志,拜访一下志同道合的好友,享受一下喜欢的曲奇饼干…..

在每天的平凡中寻找不平凡。

趁没人注意的时候来个侧身翻。牢记乔治艾略特的宣言:“去成为你本应该成为的人,任何时候都不算晚。”

笑口常开.想要什么,勇敢地说。 挂上一个吊床,在里面躺一会儿。找一份你喜欢的工作,释放恐惧。

鼓起勇气. 在你能给的所有礼物中,对你所爱的人来说,最大的礼物就是让他们看到,你过着幸福的生活。如果你快乐,那就意味着你给了人家一个快乐的理由:他,也一样能快乐。

爱. 拥抱希望。用智慧来解决难题。花些时间来观察自然。接受那些偶尔的不快,那些只是生活的一部分。让快乐成为你生命的终极目标。在你得到快乐之前,即使不快乐,也要要假装快乐。

创造宁静的环境。下决心让自己今天过得比昨天快乐。放声大笑。
