7 Surprisingly Quick And Easy Ways To Feel Happier
Go for a walk
Most people know that going for a short daily walk is one of the best forms of exercise. When you are feeling down, it is even more beneficial. If you can, go into a natural environment with plants and birds. Can you think of such a setting not? What do you notice first? The different shades of greenery, the fresh smell of country air, the sounds of birds, or the sunlight shining through the trees? Make it real by taking a short stroll.
Listen to quality music.
Music can shift a listener’s state within moments. Its effect can be nearly magical. Dig out that CD you haven’t listened to in ages, search for the most successful contemporary classical artists of all time or tune in your radio to something you’ve never listened to before.
Open yourself to discovering something new.
Read something (printed, not online) different from what you would typically watch. There are many kinds of magazines you can get these days. Visit your local library or browse through a magazine rack. Pick up or buy a magazine you wouldn’t usually buy. You may discover something extraordinary.
Find something to laugh at
Laughter is one of the best ways to lift your spirits. Find a humorous book, or watch a comedy. Even better, try to learn a few new jokes and tell them to others.
Simple breathing meditation
Breathing meditation is a great exercise that you can do anywhere. Allow yourself to sit comfortably with your back straight. Now close your eyes and become aware of the airflow into and out of your nostrils. That’s all there is to it. Do this for 10-15 minutes. Notice how pleasantly surprised you can be at how you feel afterwards.
Doodling for the fun of it
Most people can remember when they were young and used to doodle for hours. Kids love drawing silly little pictures. Drawing is not just for kids or artists. Whoever you get some pens, pencils, crayons, or whatever you have and draw for its fun. Notice how your state of mind shifts.
Think of others less fortunate
The fact that you are reading this article suggests that you are probably much better off than most people. At times this may be hard to believe, but if you can read and have access to the internet, those two things alone mean you are better off than most people in the world. Many human beings barely have access to the basics of survival. There are people in lots of pain. Allow your compassion for them to grow. These are all pretty simple. There’s nothing profound or life-changing, but when all you need is a quick pick me up, these may be just the thing you need. Putting simple ideas, methods, tools and techniques into action will help you achieve change more quickly and easily–surprisingly so at the time– than you imagine.
