There is a quote from Hafiz, a Persian poet that says, “ Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive. May it be a loved one or a profession that is in line with your life’s purpose. They keep up us motivated to do more and be better.
How to be happy?
Staying close to the things that make us happy is important. Being happy is also essential. So, how do we achieve happiness? We sometimes ask, how to be happy? Healthline outline some habits to add to our routine to achieve happiness.
Happiness is reachable and is possible. There are habits that we can cultivate to achieve happiness. If some of these habits create added stress or just don’t fit your lifestyle, ditch them. With a little time and practice, you’ll figure out what does and doesn’t work for you.
While not completely foolproof, researchers have found that the link between smiling and happiness could be attributed to the “facial feedback hypothesis,” where facial expressions may have a modest influence on emotions.
Regular exercise can help reduce stress, feelings of anxiety, and symptoms of depression while boosting self-esteem and happiness.
Get plenty of sleep
No matter how much our modern society steers us toward less sleep, we know that adequate sleep is vital to good health, brain function, and emotional well-being. Getting enough sleep also reduces your risk of developing certain chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, depression, and diabetes.
Simply being grateful can give your mood a big boost, among other benefits. For example, a two-part study found that practicing gratitude can have a significant impact on feelings of hope and happiness.
Research shows that performing acts of kindness may also help promote your overall well-being.
