5 Steps to Being Happier

Hi there!

Lately I've been getting stressed out about school and other things. I'm not usually a worrier but I decided to take action.

I, personally, work better when I have a list or a plan so I decided to make just that. I wrote down a list of things to make me happy and this week I feel so much better.

I thought I'd help you out by sharing this list with you

1) Take days one at a time.
Recently I've been worrying about events days in advance. Before I fall asleep at night I like to think about what I'm excited about for the next day. If there is something that I'm worried about the next day, I try to think of how I can improve the situation.

2) Go to bed early
This sounds like a silly one but honestly, I feel so much better if I've had a good night's sleep. I feel fresher and more alert. I decide, instead of watching television, I will go to bed that bit earlier. Try this for a couple of nights and you will experience a huge change!

3) Talk to someone
Talking to people has such a positive reaction, even if it is a totally unrelated topic to your issues. This will distract your mind and you will instantly feel better.

4) Keep a diary
I doubt I will ever stop recommending writing a diary. I find it so helpful. Each night, I take the time to write down what has happened and how I feel. I have learnt that if you keep your problems bottled away you will think about them more. Once the problems are out on paper they will seem less daunting.

5) Take time to do something fun
You don't need a lot of time to do something enjoyable. It costs nothing to go for a walk and you'll feel so refreshed afterwards. Sometimes a little retail therapy is needed. Everyone needs time to relax and distract themselves from other worries!

I hope you liked these quick tips. If you have any tips of your own, don't hesitate to send me a quick comment.

Until next time!!!
