Life is a roller coaster ride. There will be plenty of occasions in your life which will make you feel on the top of the world and many will be there to shake your world upside down. That can also take your self-confidence, happiness and life to a low. Here are few things to do when life is not giving you enough reasons to be happy. True happiness is not something which we have to search outside, this stays inside us only, and we just have to start searching it, so that no low moment can take it away from us. Let’s check out these tricks to make yourself happy when you are feeling low
#1. Go Shopping
Shopping therapy is one sure therapy, which works very well in any depressing conditions. This is proven way to cheer someone. Shopping gives immense pleasure to a person and lift their mood instantly. So next time when you feel that this world is not good, nothing is going right in life, no one is with you, just grab your purse and head straight to a shopping destination and splurge on the things you love. So be happy and have a few more things after this shopping therapy.
My favorite remedy is to sleep. This also proven by science that even a few hours of extra sleep can cheer you up and bring you into the happy phase of your life. I truly believe in this. Sleeping will disconnect you from your worries, tension, all the hustle bustle of life and takes you to the other world where you will be free of any worries or tension which are making you unhappy. So go grab that pillow and take another nap and get up to the cheerful day.
#3. Have your favorite food
There is an old saying that way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Yes, so if you want to please your heart, then start with pleasing your stomach. Research say that people who are full on stomach and had their favorite food they tend to be happier than people with less interesting food. So just grab that favorite bite of yours and raise the happiness bar for you.
In the hustle bustle of life, a person doesn’t find time for themselves. These things distance them from themselves and happiness. Meditation is a proven way to enlighten your soul. We can be truly happy only we can find happiness for our soul. So just take time out from your daily regime, start it by investing just 15 minutes of your day. This will distant you from the materialistic things which are the actual cause of the unhappiness in human being. Meditation will increase your concentration power, and give you inner peace. You can use these to solve your problem or you will just learn to ignore those petty things which you think are problems, but which are not actually problems but just your mare thoughts.
#5. Be with friends
Don’t ever stay alone and overthink your problems and make them bigger. Instead, just call your friends and discuss your situation with them, after all, friends are there for the ups and down all in life. I always try this trick, call my friends and discuss my so called problems with them and at the end of the discussion; I feel that I was stupid enough to think of a small thing as a problem. This happens with everyone sometimes we become sensitive with some things or people that we overreact to all things related to those. So next time you feel that life is not good, just call your friends so that they can give you a dose of happiness.
#6. Try new things
When things trouble you, distance yourself from those. The Best way to do that is to try new things and divert your time, energy and attention to a new thing. We always think of doing something or other, but due to our regular routine, we just keep them on the back track. So for now, just stop giving it any excuses and try new thing. They will help you get out of the situation you are facing, and divert your mind towards the thing you like.
#7. Think about the best of you
When we feel low, we just keen on thinking about the things which are not good for us, or the things we can’t do, or the criticism we face. So in your low time stop your mind to go negative way, think about your capabilities, talent and positivity. The more positive you will think the happier you will feel. There can be no other person in this world who knows your capabilities better than you. So don’t let the world decide what you are, decide for yourself.
#8. Go out
I never met a person till date who don’t like to go out and explore new places. Traveling and exploring new places add to the experience in our life. Things and people might come and go from our life, but experiences will always stay. So you better to leave those negative feelings behind pack your bag and leave for a new destination to give a dose of happiness to yourself.
Yes, you read it right. Laugh and laugh off all your worries and sorrows and disappointments. There is a saying that sadness stays away from the people who know to laugh. So just indulge in something which makes you laugh. Play a stupid game, watch a comedy movie, or just indulge into some stupid conversation with friends. That will surely lift your mood and you will be able to bring happiness back to the life.
#10. Avoid negative people
This will help you a lot from getting over your situation and get into a perfect mood. Negative people have a problem for every solution and positive people have a solution for every problem. Being with negative people will only bring negative energy in your life and you won’t be able to live happily in the moment. So just take a closer look and identify those negative people and drag yourself out of their company to live happily.
Life is all what we make it. If we have decided that no one or nothing can make us unhappy, then trust me nothing can hamper your happiness. So just get up, cheer and laugh at the things which drag you to the dark phase of life, they will run away as far as they can.
