What Can I Do?

  1. Practice gratitude. Skills like having gratitude is an easy way to give yourself a confidence boost while reminding yourself to celebrate your life and be thankful for the joy you experience. Additionally, practicing gratitude towards people you care about allows you to build more meaningful connections with them.
  2. Meditate more often. Meditation is known for instilling calmness and focus in one’s mind. By clearing your mind, you allow for happiness to enter. Not to mention, a study from MIT has shown that meditation leads to long-term happiness.
  3. Exercise on a regular basis. It is known that exercise releases endorphins. Even a 15-minute jog can help reduce depression. By spending time exercising (preferably outdoors), you will improve your heart health, mental health, happiness, and well-being.
  4. Spend time in social settings. Don’t isolate yourself. We are social creatures, and while being happy alone is important, you will increase happiness through meaningful social connections.
