Happiness Hacks And Secrets
Getting your blood pumping releases endorphins throughout your whole body, creating feelings of happiness that combat a bad mood.
Studies have even shown that exercise can help alleviate symptoms of depression.
Any physical activity counts—running, indoor cycling, yoga, dancing—as long as you break a sweat.
Even a brisk 20- to 30-minute walk will help.
So, instead of comparing yourself to others, look to see if you’re fulfilling your potential by what you value.
Nothing creates a bigger jolt of enthusiasm than a new inspiring vision of the future.
Unfortunately this only causes them to feel miserable as they suffocate.
Even if your goal is something small, it can provide you with a new direction.
“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
