Ingredients for a Happy Life

Each person’s happiness is attributed to a variety of reasons. The most common ones are:

 

  1. Appreciation

Spending even just a few minutes each day to pause and appreciate everything that you have can make a whole lot of difference especially when you are feeling down.

 

  1. Acceptance

The most common trait of people who are deeply satisfied and happy in life is that they learn to accept their flaws.

Being kind to yourself can tremendously increase your enjoyment, resilience, and overall wellbeing.

 

  1. Physical activity

Regular physical activity does not just benefit your physical health. It can also benefit your mental and emotional health. So, spend even at least 30 minutes each day to exercise, whether it’s walking, swimming, or dancing.

 

  1. Giving

Happy people are generous people. When you give or care for someone, you feel really good inside. This is why giving is considered as a vital element in one’s happiness.

 

  1. Relationships

How you relate to other people have a significant impact in your happiness level. Those who have stronger and broader relationships with others are healthier, happier, and live longer.

 

  1. Resilience

Life isn’t perfect but how you respond when things go wrong is a huge determinant of your happiness.

 

  1. Purpose

There are so many things that we don’t have control of in life but having a sense of purpose/meaning can give you a direction and even helps in motivating you when you’re feeling down.
