You can find your happy this year

Is having a more positive attitude one of your resolutions? Here are three happy habits that are worth a try:

  1. Follow a healthy lifestyle. When you are eating well and exercising, you sleep better, have more energy and have a better sense of overall well-being. Plus, exercise causes your brain to release a chemical known as endorphins, which can improve your mood and even lessen depression.
  2. Surround yourself with other happy people. Happiness is contagious! Researchers have found that people who surround themselves with positive, happy people tend to be happier themselves ­– and they stay that way in the future.
  3. Express gratitude. Make a habit of starting each day by naming something that you’re grateful for. And remember to tell people how much you appreciate them – whether they helped you in a big way or simply made you smile.
