10 Simple Things To Do To Be Happy in Life

It's written in the US declaration of independance that "All men have the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of hapiness". Despite that, a lot of people spend their lives mundane, walking aimlessly amidst mediocrity.

That may soon change as we go over these 10 Simple Things to do to be Happy in Life.

1. Keep Moving

Idleness is the workshop of the devil. Whether you believe that or not, the point is standing sitting still is not doing you any good. The world is vast with many exiting adventures waiting for you to enjoy. You may feel comfort from your couch and Doritos but the question is are you happy?

2. Live in the Moment

live in the moment

None of us can see the future. Whatever happens in the future is uncertain and whatever is meant to happen will happen. Same goes with the past; it cannot be undone, it cannot be altered. Worrying about what hasn't and what already has happened, won't get you anywhere. Enjoy every day as if it were your last and you will be happier.

3. See the Joy in Simple Things

Not everyone is lucky enough to live in a gold-encrusted palace. But seeing the joy in little things that comes your way will make your life happier. When you wake up in the morning, be thankful you had another day to live. The small things are what matter.

4. Be Happy With What You have

Stress and anxiety can come from wanting something you cannot have. So why go on wanting? Be content and realize that you are fortunate. Enjoy what you have, and count what you have, not what you don't.

5. Smile

"A pleasant encounter meets a pleasant response". I read that on a sign in my university nnd that's very accurate. When you encounter other people, don't forget to smile even if it's a forced one at first. Who knows that friendly smile could've won you a friend for life.

6. Seek Relationships

seek relationships

Our lives are infinite universes of possibilities. Relationships (friends, acquaintances, romantic interests) link your universe to another's creating more and more possibilities and opportunities. I'm just saying humans are social beings, and making a few friends should make you pretty happy.

7. Do Not Fear Change

I once heard "The only thing constant is change". Resisting causes distress. The world is flowing and everchanging. Learn to adapt to and embrace changes as they come and I'm sure the next time the menu in your favorite restaurant is changed, you'll be smiling.

8. Be Truthful

"The Truth will set you free". Lies chain you up and dig you deeper and deeper into the pit of despair. You create enemies, you make your friends doubt you, and you make you doubt yourself. Tell the truth and happiness will make itself known.

9. Stop Stressing Yourself

There is only one person in the world capable of stopping you from being happy... You. Your stress, your anxieties, your fears, your anger. Is all because you choose to feel that way. Stop stressing yourself and you will be happy.

10. Live a Happy Life

As with negativity, there is only one person who can tell you to be happy... YOU. Happiness comes from what you view as being happy, so why not view everything as happy? be positive, live happily. It's that simple.

Happiness is everyone's lifetime goal, I hope this helped find yours.
