Everyone everywhere deals with stress and that can take away from your happiness and your health so today I’m giving 10 tips that have always worked for me in living a happy and healthy life!
1. When You Look Good You Feel Good
Often when I fell down I make it a point to put a lori not my appearance. When I do my hair and make up and put on a nice outfit I look in the mirror, I like the way I look therefore my mood instantly changes. When you’re more presentable i your appearance you’ll notice the way people treat you is better and you’ll feel good about yourself and in general.
2. Let Go
You cannot control everything so learn to let go. Live life and enjoy it! Remember everything in this life happens for a reason so don’t try to control things! Just let go.
3. Live Life
You can’t take things too seriously, when you’re older and you look back on your life don’t you want to have any regrets or thoughts of what if, you want to know you’ve really enjoyed it.
4. Surround Yourself With People Doing Great Things
I truly hate the phrase birds of a feather flock together but as I’ve grown i’ve come to see in some situations it can be very true. I enjoy having an eclectic group of people around me who can show me and teach me things I don’t know however I like and choose to surround myself with positive people doing positive things. When you’re constantly around people doing great things they will push and inspire you to do great things as well.
5. Make Decisions For Yourself
Wantin to make and keep people happy is natural, we are all people pliers especially when hit comes to work and family but don’t make a decision that makes you uncomfortable just to please someone else. Remember never sacrifice your happiness for the happiness of someone else, you have to live with your decisions.
6. Don’t Compare Your Behind the Scenes Footage to Someone Else’s Highlight Reel
What does this mean? You don’t see everyone’s struggle because they don’t show it. People only show the positives in their lives, the good things and you can’t compare what you’re going through now to the successful place someone is in. You never now the journey someone took, everyone goes through different things to get where they are!
7. Be Honest With Yourself and Set No Expectations
When you have an expect ration you can be setting yourself for sadness. Like I stated earlier let go and live life, let life happen of course it’s good to plan things out, planning breeds success but don’t expect things to work out perfectly each time, in life that doesn’t happen. When you set no expectations then regardless of the good or bad outcome the disappointment may be less of a shock to you.
8. Have Me Time
If you aren’t happy in your own company than you can never truly be happy in someone else’s. Cook yourself dinner, go out for a cocktail, read a book or a magazine or even lay in a bubble bath, light some candles and listen to your favorite playlist. Spending time with yourself allows you to really find who you are and truly love that person.
9. Eat Good and Drink Good
Lately I’ve made the decision to eat healthier because you have to be aware of what you put into your body. I’ve been drinking more water and making fresh fruit smoothies as well as having cut out fast food! When you eat good you feel good
10. Open Yourself Up To New Things
Sometimes changing your surroundings can help you broaden your horizons. Meet new people and discover new things. It’s easy to become frustrated when you’re in the same place around the same people constantly and it’s great to get away and see new things!
I hope these 10 tips help you all stay happy and healthy
