Some of my favourite tips for nurturing happiness, joy, delight and wonder ♥
Fake it till you make it – decide to be happy. Smile, laugh often and have fun. Sometimes actions come before feelings (instead of the other way around). So in other words: act happy, and you will feel happy.
Smile – as Thich Nhat Hanh advises … wear a half smile always.Smile while listening to music, smile during your free moments, smile even when you are irritated.
Listen to upbeat music – my personal favourites: walking on sunshine, somewhere over the rainbow, don’t worry be happy. And my favourite place to listen to them – in the shower! Nothing starts your day off on a positive note like listening to these songs while you have your morning shower.
Laugh – because generally life itself is too absurd not to. Even if you can’t about something now, chances are you will be able to at some point. Really – sometimes all you can do is laugh.
Surround yourself with people who make you smile
Dream big, sing loudly, and dance like no-one is watching
