Summer is over, autumn will soon pass, cold, long nights and a minimum of sun are ahead. How can I not be sad here? But do not get discouraged and enter the "sleep mode" until the spring. There are great ways to become a little happier! Well, or, at least, at least a little to cheer yourself up. By the way, the effectiveness of these tips has been proven by science!
1. Write down every day what you are grateful for.
Keeping a diary has long been associated with positive emotions. And if you regularly write down everything at the end of the day that you can thank this day for, it will help you to become more organized and, in general, a little happier in the future.
2. Try to share what made you happier with your friends and family.
Scientists have proven that sharing good news with your loved ones increases the likelihood of happiness and strengthens social ties. But sharing with someone is a two-way street, so be sure to listen to what good things happened to your friends and family.
3. Surround yourself with blue.
It is scientifically proven that the blue color and its shades increase reaction and attention, at the same time providing a sense of calm and tranquility.
4. Add meditation to your schedule.
Meditation takes effort and time, but its results are worth it. Studies show that meditation helps to "reboot" the brain and helps to reduce stress levels, while at the same time increasing the feeling of satisfaction with life.
5. Spend money on others.
Just saving money for yourself is quite selfish, and it will not lift your mood. But if you spend money on others, it improves your mood and brings a positive feeling to life. Take someone to the cinema, make an unexpected gift to a loved one, or just pay for lunch with friends.
6. Do not forget about physical activity, even if it is a short charge.
Exercise helps to reduce stress levels, even a short exercise has its great advantages. It is also proven that physical exercise improves the body image, even if there are no external changes.
7. Live every moment of your life to the fullest.
Living a full life here and now is one of the main roads to happiness. Thinking about the future or the past can make you more anxious, and focusing on what is happening at the moment can make you a little happier.
8. Drink more water.
Studies show that even a slight lack of water in the body can lead to increased irritability and dissatisfaction with life. So drink the recommended amount of water per day – about 8 glasses.
9. Sleep at night.
A good sleep leads to an increase in the body's resistance to negative emotions, and also helps the body to produce anti-stress neurotransmitters. The main thing is not to overdo it – too long sleep is also harmful and leads to depression.
10. Take a walk in the fresh air.
Even short half-hour walks on the street help to increase the level of happiness and a sense of peace. In addition, it helps the body better absorb vitamin D, which helps with various diseases.
11.Set achievable goals for yourself.
This is one of the most standard ways to cheer up. Goals should not be too ambitious and unrealistic. Just making up goals for yourself and achieving them, you will soon feel much happier and more successful.
12. Smile more often.
A smile will not pull you out of depression, but if your day was neutral, a simple smile can "turn" your emotions in the direction of positive. And if you smile at someone, you will surely get a smile in return, which will create a "cycle of happiness".
13. Listen to your favorite funny songs.
Listening to your favorite dance hits, you can easily banish sadness. The main thing is to listen carefully to the music and delve into the rhythm. Music playing in the background is unlikely to cheer you up.
14. Finally, spend less time online.
