Be Happy Now Not ‘One Day’

We can’t be happy 100% of the time at the end of the day we’re all human and that’s alright. I think everyone strives to be happy and for me it’s the meaning of life – we only get one, why not enjoy it? Read on for my 12 tips on how to lead a happy life:

Be happy – take pleasure from the little things in life. Don’t dwell on bad experiences. Life is linear. You can’t change the past.

Be kind – open a door for a stranger, pick up something someones dropped and chase after them to give it back, do what you’d hope someone would do for you.

Think – take care of your actions and how other people might perceive you, be a better person.

Embrace fear – do things that scare you, push your boundaries, explore new horizons.

Make mistakes – the only way to learn sometimes is to try, the worst that can happen is to fail, you can always try again.

Appreciate the world – go green, look after the planet. Consume less and things mean more.

Eat natural – cut out processed food, eat fresh, eat raw, eat anything a five year old could easily identify. Your body and bank will thank you.

Buy a filtered water bottle and drink 1 litre a day, then two.

Stretch everything, learn some yoga moves, feel every muscle.

Treat yourself, regularly. Do it just for you.

Find your passion; whether it’s travel, work or even another person. Give it all of your time and energy.

Get out more. Enjoy nature. Take a break from technology. Switch off.
