7 Surefire Things You Can Do To Live A Happier Life


Whatever we are doing in our lives, the intention in our mind is to get ourselves comfortable, relaxed and happy at the end of the day. However our routine work and busy schedules make it difficult for us to achieve these goals of happy life, that all of us deserve. In this perspective we consider it difficult for ourselves to get our happiness and motivation levels high which makes life boring and misery surrounds us. We all have our own perceptions of the ways that can help us live a happier life, and it is not of guaranteed  phenomenon that what makes person A happy, will make person B and C happy too. But we can do learn from one another experiences to live happier lives.

Today I’m going to write up some of the surefire ways or things that you can incorporate in to your daily routine lives that have ultimate effect of making us happy, prosperous and motivated about our lives. Now it's up to you to figure out what works best for you to give results, but I think all of these strategies are worth trying. So let’s begin reading and implementing these principle rules that will increase your life satisfaction:

1. Charity work and volunteering

Money can’t help you buy happiness, but can only provide you some luxuries and comfort in life. And life isn’t mean to have more luxuries and comforts than others, but has some different cause in depth. The cause is to serve humanity with service and devotion. One of the surefire way to get ourselves feel happy is to put our souls and bodies in doing good for society, it has many perks in itself. People who give away their money to charity or do some volunteer work tend to be more satisfied for their lives than to those, whose only ambition in life is to earn more dollars to become wealthier than ever. You can take the example of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who had given major part of their wealth to run charitable foundations worldwide, which are serving the humanity and in return both are living happier, prosperous and satisfied lives.
Although, volunteering would not provide you any money but can give you some lifetime experiences and promotes goodness and quality of life. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, socialization, and fun. Charity work and volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served. Research has shown that people who volunteer often live longer. Charity and volunteering gives us an opportunity to give back to the community with interest.

I would end this point with saying, may your charity increase as your wealth!


2. Take part in cultural activities

Every person is born in a family; every family is part of a society and ultimately every society bears a specific culture. The culture that we bear has its roots in decade’s long traditions. No matter what kind of culture we possess, every culture is unique and has something to offer its bearers, which is simplicity, amusement and joy. In this regard, being cultural makes us live a simple life style that today’s automation age has made complex. Research has found that men who take part in cultural activities are more happy, healthy and satisfied with life and score low anxiety and depression versus those who don't went cultured.
According to the research, cultural activities such as visiting museums, art exhibitions, the theatre, concerts, watching films and plays or playing musical instruments could promote good health and are surefire ways to promote happiness in life.


3. Spend time with nature

There are no trends, influences, or expectations, and you are free to ponder life in its purest form. It can be very spiritual to spend some time removed from anything man-made. Viewing greenery gives your brain a mental break, while city living can stress you out. Take the time to visit a nearby park or garden to take in nature's beauty and boost your happiness at the same time. I'm quoting this to spend time outdoors, and here are a few reasons why it can be beneficial:

a. It has a calming effect. 
b. It teaches us about living in harmony.
c. You might sneeze less.
d. Your brain will be sharper.
e. Stress and anxiety won’t be such a big deal.
f. You might be inspired to save the world.


 4. Be around happy people

Happy people are intoxicating, infectious and are markedly lovelier to be around than miserable people. We have all met "those people". You can't miss them! You’ll find them walking around with an ear-to-ear smile and an inner joy that cannot be touched. Their happiness can infect others with just a look. Next thing you know you'll find yourself with a similar smile and the desire to share happiness with someone else. You can help spread happiness by doing things to improve others lives too.

Having someone in your immediate social circle ups your chances of happiness by 15%. Why? It seems happy people have the power to spread their feel-good vibes far and wide the same way a ripple spreads through a pond. It could have far-reaching benefits for your mental health.


 5. Plan a vacation

Vacations mean a change of pace, a gentleness with ourselves, a time of rest and renewal, and a time to stretch ourselves and encounter new people, new lands, new ways, and new options. So be an explorer. The universe is filled with wonder and magical things. Find what brings you joy and go there. Go where you can celebrate without any worry and stress.
Research has found that it's the planning of a vacation and not the actual trip itself that increases happiness in people and increases their motivation and esteem levels high. In addition, laugh as much as possible, it is an instant vacation.


 6. Watch less TV

Your life is more important than the TV schedule. Mindless TV-watching allows all sorts of images and values that we don’t necessarily endorse into our home. The media can wreak great harm on the family when it offers an inadequate or even distorted vision of life, of the family itself and of religion and morality. Now the reasons why I encourage watching less TV is:

a. TV slows down your brain activity.
b. There is lack of quality shows on most of the channels. Keeping TV watching down to a minimal level means that when it’s on, it’s quality.
c. Over-Commercialization and pointless advertisements puts our minds to buy unnecessary things that we don’t really need
d. TV is linked with lower life satisfaction
e. Not watching TV saves you money
f. It’s more peaceful, relaxing, and less stressful when the TV is off by default.
g. There are simply other fun things to do.

The point to remember is that, there is an off button on the TV that’s surely for a reason. And that is only to turn it off.


7. Change and innovate what you do

We all have some hobbies that we like to be used to, but if they become routine it wears off happiness and joy that it brought with it for us.  So changing what you do or innovating the way of doing may embrace you with happiness, joy and relaxation. So change things up every once in a while.

Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. Although change has a bad reputation in the society and in lives itself, but it isn’t all bad, not by any means. In fact, change is necessary in life, to keep us moving, to keep us growing and to keep us interested in our lives. Now imagine a life without change. It would be static, boring and dull. So remember what Maya Angelou said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”


In fact I know that being happy forever is impossible due to life’s circumstances. But to try these surefire techniques is a must-do activity that you can have to incorporate more happiness in your life. These are the best alternatives of therapies, pharmaceuticals and are self-help classic principles to make you feel happy and relaxed in your lives.

Happy journey to happiness!
