How to be happier on a daily basis — 10 simple and effective tips

1. Have a mantra

Mantras are little phrases you repeat to yourself when everything seems to be slipping away. During a moment of tension or stress, choose your mantra and say it to yourself until things get better. “I deserve to live with ease”, “I did well, I don’t need to be perfect”, “It’s not the end of the world”, etc. It’s up to you to find your own one, it’s even a great idea for a minimalist tattoo to hold onto that mantra!

2. Be curious

Keeping an open mind is a way to be amazed again and again. Travel, read, meet people and don’t deprive yourself under the guise of principles or preconceived ideas, just discover!

3. Live in the moment

You must know how to recognize the moments that count and live them to the full. Make these happy moments last as long as possible by really living them. Don’t think about your worries or the next day, just be in the present moment.

4. See your friends!

Surrounding yourself in difficult times, but also in good times, is of paramount importance. Friends allow you to create new memories, but also to get back on track. They’re a defense mechanism against sadness. So remember to maintain your friendships.

5. Be empathetic!

Being open is also being empathetic. You must know how to be happy for others and accept their happiness. Instead of withdrawing into what makes you suffer, why don’t you share and feed off the happiness of others to build your own?

6. Smile

Smiling and taking things in your stride, rather than getting angry, is a good way to be happier and to make others happy too. Tell yourself that you only have one problem per day. If you don’t have any, be happy, if you have more than one, face them with humor and a smile!

7. Don’t be dramatic!

Everyone can have their share of little worries: a moody partner, a mother-in-law who shows up, a broken-down car, a nasty stain, etc. However, everyday worries mustn’t become dramas. Don’t turn yourself inside out for so little!

8. Breathe

Breathe deeply, that’s how you remember you’re alive, but it also helps to get rid of tension. If someone shouts at you, you’re stuck in traffic, etc., focus on your breathing to calm your emotions! There are many breathing exercises to help you relax!

9. Meditate

More and more people are taking up mindfulness meditation, and there’s a reason for that! Meditation is a good way to get away from the hectic pace of life.

10. Escape from perfection!

Excellence is your enemy! Don’t try to compare yourself to others and realize that not all moments of happiness, even the best, are always perfect. There’s always a glitch somewhere.

What are the different types of happiness?

There are two kinds of satisfaction:

1. Eudaemonic happiness, i.e. happiness that comes from our fulfillment, from using our talents and skills to pursue goals that are meaningful to us;

2. Hedonic happiness, which is related to the pursuit of pleasure and the experience of certain stimuli.

The researchers worked on blood samples from 80 healthy adults who were first characterized according to their type of well-being, eudaemonic or hedonic. Individuals with eudaemonic happiness showed a genetic expression that predisposed them less to the risk of inflammation. They also had a more effective defense system, with a high expression of antivirals and antibodies. In other words, they were better predisposed to fight bacteria and viruses. On the other hand, people with a hedonistic profile were more exposed to the risk of inflammation and had a less favorable expression of antivirals and antibodies.

However, in terms of satisfaction, there was no difference in well-being between the two groups; people who were happy in an eudaemonic mode were as happy as those who were happy in a hedonistic mode. What this research tells us is that flourishing and feeling good have different effects on the human genome, even though they generate similar levels of positive emotions.

Editor’s note — The importance of putting things into perspective

Being happy is also about changing your way of thinking and seeing things. Not everything revolves around you, and you must learn to focus on something else! By doing that, you will be able to take a step back from a negative situation, and you’ll learn to put things into perspective. Happiness is inside you, you have to learn to have a different view on life and your experiences to achieve it. However, successfully putting things into perspective can be complicated if you feel overwhelmed by stress or anxiety. If that’s the case, it’s important to consult someone to talk about your problems. Having a neutral person look at your life can do a lot of good!

🤗 Understand yourself, accept yourself, be happy… Let’s do it here and now!
