Watch What You Eat

The foods you eat impact your body in many ways. A healthy diet helps keep the body functioning at its best and can improve your mood. 

1

Seek Alternative Compensation

Focusing too much on money tends to raise stress levels and lower happiness. Seeking raises at work can actually make you less content.  

2

Spend Time with Friend

Strengthening relationships with good friends is a great way to relax and improve your mood. Go fishing, hiking, out for a bite to eat or to a movie with a friend.  

3

Workout Regularly

Exercise is great for your body and mind. Staying active can help you maintain a healthy body weight, strengthen heart health and build muscle tone, among other benefits.  

4

Set Your Sleep Cycle

A good night’s sleep is important to help you feel and function at your best. Help maintain a healthy sleep cycle by exposing yourself to bright light early in the morning. 

5

Exercise Your Ear

Try using music to fine-tune your ears. Turn down the volume to a level that allows you to carry on a normal conversation, then practice focusing on a single instrument. 

6

Savor the Little Thing

Building short-term positive emotions can change your outlook and lead to greater happiness.

7

Take a Walk

Getting outside is a great mood booster. Restore and refresh your mind by taking a walk in nature; it’s great for your mental state and your body. 

8

Practice Mindful Breathing

Learning and practicing techniques for mindful breathing help reduce negative thoughts and promote relaxation. Try building up to 10 minutes of mindful breathing each day. 

9

Compliment Your Spouse

A healthy marriage can help to increase happiness levels and can actually be good for your health because it may lower your chance of getting sick or suffering from depression.
