Many psychologists ensure that happiness depends on each one. In fact, happiness is the feeling of being satisfied with the life you lead, affection you receive. And it is the absence of negative emotions! Here are 11 ways to improve a little or a lot in your daily life.
Sleeping next to the person whose cortisol levels are reduced, like the hormone responsible for stress helping you feel better, better protected and happy. This feeling of happiness only works if you believe the person at your side as your “soul mate”.
It is not always easy to find time to eat together, but as soon as the opportunity arises, eat with family (even if it is only during the weekends). A number of studies have shown that members of a family who eat breakfast or eat together feel more connected to each other – even teenagers feel closer to their parents and their degree of happiness is higher.
More spice in your food.
Chili or chili increase the production of hormones of happiness. This is due to the presence of a substance, capsaicin. In reality, this substance causes some irritation due to tingling of the food. Faced with this reaction, the brain starts to release hormones that make us feel good immediately. But beware, do not abuse it, these foods can be very irritating to the gastrointestinal mucosa, if consumed in large quantities.
Altruism is good.
Be good, selfless and compassionate is a valuable personal property and a chance for others. Various studies that analyze the behavior and satisfaction levels have also demonstrated it. However, all your good deeds and your help to others should not be imposed nor cause stress, if the fulfillment of these tasks does not make you happy.
Have at least 10 good friends.
Aristotle was right: “the happy man needs friends”. The specialists of human behavior and social relations said that we needed 10 good friends to feel protected and happier. According to some studies, people who have five good friends (approximately) have a 40% chance to be happy, while for those who have more than ten, this percentage increases to 55%. However, these studies provided it is not enough to “make friends” but also maintain these friendships in the long term.
Make a getaway in a park or any green space, occasionally (especially if you suffer from low morale) turns out to be the best therapy against sadness. If, in addition, you have the chance to be surrounded by green spaces near you, take time to observe nature when you feel depressed. It seems that nature has a positive influence on our internal balance and functioning of our brain.
Not to sleepless nights.
If you do not sleep at least 6 hours per night (6 hours and 15 minutes to be precise) it is normal not to feel good. The well-being and sleep are related. So strive to get enough sleep to feel good. Sleep has other advantages: it improves our immune system thus reducing diseases. The absence of disease is another responsible factor for our happiness.
The more you feel defeated and weakened morally, the more you need to think about your future happiness. Anticipate moments that make you smile (an outing with friends or family, a hobby). This way your happiness will not be limited only to moments you already lived, but also the times to come. A very positive technique to increase this feeling of happiness over time. If you have nothing exciting in the near term, then remind your moments of past happiness.
Feel Beautiful and Attractive.
People feel happier than women when their surroundings find them very beautiful. Thus, if one is favored physically (although this is not quite the case) he would feel happier.
The keys to happiness would be neutral, for it you should not always impose your ideas and views. It would save 99% of our psychological energy which could be intended to make us happy.
The importance of food.
According to A study of Human Nutrition Department of the University of Otago, New Zealand. People who eat 7-8 fruits and vegetables a day are happier than others. This sense of emotional well-being could be due to the effects of antioxidants, especially of beta carotene, the brain connections.
