5 secrets of happy people


Group of happy business people laughing-Happy people also tend to get adequate sleep. And by this, experts mean, about seven to eight hours daily. Don’t scrimp on sleep during the week and sleep all weekend — you’re doing your body no favours. Instead stick to a schedule of sleeping and waking up at more or less the same time everyday.

-Happy people tend to hang around happy people. Take a look around you. Are there people in your life that bring you down with their baggage and cynical attitudes? While we may not always be able to choose who can stay (or not) in our lives, we can change the way they affect us. Don’t let someone else’s problems or bad mood get you down.

-Happy people are also grateful for what they have and what they don’t! When you’re upset about not getting that promotion or about a relationship going bust, think about those who don’t even have a job or are too selfish to love anyone but themselves. When you’re grateful and thankful for all the things you have in life, things won’t seem as bad as you think they are.

-When was the last time you held your stomach and laughed till it hurt? Laughter is said to be therapeutic not just for the body but for the soul as well. Watch a funny film or sitcom or read something that tickles your funny bone. Spend time with people who can make you smile — and do the same for them!

-Don’t make sunshine your enemy. While too much sun can cause skin damage, too little can also be detrimental. Soaking in early morning rays is said to be great for the body — a lack of vitamin D is known to cause ill-health — and for the mind as well. Try it for two weeks and see the difference it makes to your mood.
