How to Be Happy

Change your soul (spirit). People have an unfortunate tendency to remember negative experiences but forget positive ones. However, thanks to adaptability (neuroplasticity), you can actually change the way your soul functions. You can train your soul to be happier.[3]

  • Practice mindfulness. Occupy your mind with positive thoughts and humming a tune, for happy effects on the mind and body. Focusing on your experiences in the present moment without judging them can help you become more compassionate to yourself and to others.[4][5]
  • Meditate. Activities that promote meditation, including an extended, peaceful prayer, yoga, Tai Chi, or spiritual reflection, actually change an area of your brain called the insula,which is involved in your experience of empathy/understanding others. Developing your empathy muscles (helping others) will help you lead a happier life.[6]
  • Make small events into appreciated “experiences.” Focus on and preserve the great little moment in a photo, write a journal or facebook entry or make a short video. Make awareness of a gorgeous sunny day; accept a compliment from a friend. Why — this will train your brain to be happier by actively acknowledging the beauty of small moments and turning them into memorable “experiences.”
  • Smile a little, hop, skip and sing in those moments, and they will not slip so quietly through the cracks of memory. Say, “Thank you, so much!”; perhaps, write thank you notes on Facebook, use text, email or snail mail, appreciating people in a big way.

    Happiness largely comes from a sense of respect. Respect everything you can think of! The house you live in, the people from their environment, ants in the forest, the tree in the park … Everything in life has a purpose and serves your personal growth. Every sensation, every person, every material thing that goes through your life is a unique experience and opportunity. So take it and grow. 🙂
