How to Get Happy
Being happy starts with your health.
Drink Your Way to Happiness
Drink more water.. not what you typically hear in the winter but people are more susceptible to dehydration in cold weather, and even mild dehydration over prolonged periods of time can affect our health. Studies have shown that the human body reacts differently when exposed to cold, decreasing levels of certain fluid-regulating hormones.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day by filling up a 32 oz. container at the beginning of the day. If you haven’t finished it by the end of the day you know you have some catching up to do.
Excise is the Key
Try as much as you can to get out in nature. Find a winter sport if you can
Bundle up and take walk. It really is beautiful when the snow glitters and its frosty cold. Be mindful of your surroundings
Be aware of all the beauty of this season.
Go to the park or don’t forget to just look up at the sky and notice the sunset or sunrise
How to Get Happy Emotionally
Think of at least 10 things a day that you are grateful for. When you start thinking of things you will have a hard time stopping at 10.
Try this simple exercise. Text a friend two words “ten things’ and have an agreement them that every time you do this you will text each other ten things you are grateful for. It’s a great way to get your collective energy vibrating in love and appreciation
Listen to some music and dance. Music transcends. It’s a connectorof energy it makes you happy and releases feel good chemicals. It’s also a great way to get up and get moving.
