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