Make Yourself Happier with These Ingredients

September 15, 2018 | By More

What does it take to be happy? We all know healthy, wealthy, beautiful people who are miserable, so it must take something else to be happy. But what? What’s the big secret?

While there isn’t a recipe that works for everyone, there are a number of things that most happy people have in common.

Adding at least a few of these items to your life is sure to make you smile more often:

Something to look forward to. Think about how much more you enjoy your life when you have something on the horizon to look forward to. It could be a vacation, Christmas, a fun project to start, or the pending release of a new book. What can you plan in the near future that would excite you?

Someone to love. It’s important to have someone to love and someone that loves you. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a romantic relationship. A child, or even a pet, can fill that role. There are many people alone in the world. All you need to do is reach out to them.

A meaningful way to spend your time. This isn’t quite the same as challenge. Volunteering at your church or a charity might not be challenging, but it can be meaningful. It’s important to feel that you matter.

Personal growth. People are happy when they’re making progress in life. There are many ways to experience progress. It might be your waistline, health, knowledge, wisdom, golf game, or your piano skills. Knowing you’re better at something today than you were last year is a great feeling.

How happy are you? What can you do to make yourself happier? The items in this list are important, but the list isn’t exhaustive. Add a few of these items to your life and brainstorm a few more ideas.

You can make yourself happier by taking control of your life and focusing on the things that make a difference to you. Soon, you’ll feel greater fulfillment and realize that you’ve built a life you truly enjoy.
