15 Habits of Happy People

Written by Tiffany French

Happy people don't just happen.  As philosopher William James said, "Action may not bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action."  Incorporate just a few of these habits into your daily life...and see what happens.


1
Smile

Smiles are contagious, so put one on your face and pass it on.  You'll be amazed at who will smile back.


2
Laugh

Don't take life so seriously. Laugh at yourself or find the funny in the everyday.


3
Dance

Life often calls for a time (and a need) to be silly. Let the silliness spread from your head to your toes.  And don’t worry about who may watch. Chances are they'll start dancing too.


4
Hug

Whether for celebration or comfort, offer someone a hug and share your happiness and positive energy.


5
Appreciate

Be thankful every day. Remember you are blessed beyond measure.


6
Gratitude

Make it your daily attitude.


7
Optimism

Even though you may not immediately see it, there is a positive side to every situation. View the glasses in your life as half-full.


8
Confidence

Believe in yourself, not the person people think you are. Do your best and don't second-guess.


9
Invest (in yourself)

Make sure that you take care of yourself. Exercise and relax your body, mind and soul.


10
Invest (in other people)

When you aid others, you spread happiness.


11
Respect

Show respect. Accept people for who they are and do not judge.


12
Generous

Remember, paying it forward is always better than paying it back.  Be generous with your time, love and energy.


13
Forgive

Forgive others so you can be at peace. In the long run, holding a grudge will only hurt you.


14
Pray and Meditate

Throughout your day, take time to be quiet. Remember family, friends, and the strangers you meet in your thoughts and prayers.


15
Love

As 1 Corinthians 13:13 states, "…the greatest of these is love." Offer your love —unconditionally.
