How to Make Every Day a Happier One

With the brighter days and mood-boosting vitamin D (hello, sunshine), it’s easier to feel happier in the spring and summer. Yet, sometimes, we all need a little helping hand in getting our day off to a flying start.

However, it can be much easier than you realise to turn a bad day into a good one. No matter what happens, the one thing that really matters is your attitude towards the world. Want to start creating your own happiness and spreading joy? Here are some easy ways to get a smile on that face – every hour of every day.

Do that thing you’ve been putting off

The second you open your eyes (well, once you’re done with hitting “snooze”), set yourself a goal for the day. It helps to have a purpose or an intention for your day – better yet if what you plan on doing is for someone else! In particular, we love starting the day by pledging to do one thing that we’ve been putting off for months. Whether it’s cleaning out that wardrobe, wiping those sticky fingerprints from walls, or trying out that new recipe, have a go and make it your mission!

Smile at everyone

Since a simple smile can be a mood booster and could even turn around someone else’s day, why not aim to smile at everyone you meet? Yep, even strangers! You never know just how much that smile could mean to someone else.

Meditate

If you’re finding some days overwhelming and full of stresses, then why not give meditation a whirl? Meditation has been proven to improve our minds, help us to process emotions, ease physical pain, and even boost immunity. Still think it’s not for you? We’re huge fans of the Headspace app on phones, which can make meditation easier and accessible for all. Go on, give it a go!

Treat yourself

From a bunch of flowers to a new book or even a punnet of juicy blueberries (or a pack of Rizopia!), why not go out of your way to treat yourself? Spend a few extra pence and indulge yourself in a little treat that you wouldn’t normally have bought.

Get moving

Exercise is one of the best ways to ease stress, to release endorphins and to boost health. From a free power walk round your park to a Pilates class, quick swim or a run outdoors, get yourself moving. Every single day. You’ll be amazed at how much happier it can leave you!
