Are you one of the many on the continual pursuit of happiness? You are not alone. Whilst high on our list, it still manages to elude us.

Apparently, there are 12 specific things that happy people do differently. The first thing that should be high on your list is finding out what makes you happy.

The truth is, many of us actually don’t know. As a result we are left unfulfilled and chasing our tail for want of a better term. We love this GLAD Technique from Emily Roberts.

1. Express Gratitude

When you spend time each day being thankful, you find plenty of reasons to be happy. A Gratitude Journal is a great reminder and something we personally use. By recording the smallest details in your life, you soon realize just how much you have to be thankful for. It is also true that if you are not thankful for what you have, you will not be happy.

2. Cultivate Optimism

There’s a lot to be said with always looking on the bright side of life. Even when times are challenging, understand that these are simply life tests, sent to try you. Behind every dark cloud, there is a silver lining. You only need to look. People who think optimistically see the world as a place packed with opportunities.

3. Avoid Over Thinking & Social Comparison

It’s easy to think that everyone has a picture perfect life, but it’s important to remember that you are seeing nothing more than highlight reels on social media. It is a poisonous practice to compare yourself to others. The only person you should be trying to better is yourself.

4. Practice Acts Of Kindness

You will be amazed at how happy you feel when you do something without expectation or payment for another. It might be helping someone across the road or mowing your elderly neighbors lawn for them. You won’t believe the satisfaction and happiness that will fill you. The above list from positively smitten has 52 ideas if you are stuck for inspiration.

5. Nurture Social Relationships

The happiest people on the planet are those that have meaningful relationships. It’s important to cull the tree and only surround yourself with those that help you grow. Anyone that makes you feel less than best should be left on the back burner.

6. Develop Strategies For Coping

As the old saying goes, you need to be a man with a plan. Don’t leave things to chance. If you have a difficult situation you need to attend, don’t handle it on the fly and wing it. By thinking about it in a constructive way, upfront, you will avoid the pitfalls.

7. Learn To Forgive

This is a biggy! Learning how to forgive is difficult, especially when we have been hurt. It is important that you remember the damage it does to your mental and physical health. One of the best ways to release and forgive is through meditation. Many say that you can forgive but you don’t have to forget, but it really is counterproductive. We all make mistakes, there really is no right or wrong, it is just choices. When you forgive, you open yourself up to the next adventure so giddee up!

8. Increase Flow Experiences

You’ve heard the saying, ‘in the flow’. It’s when time stand stills and you are so engrossed in the task at hand that nothing else can compete. It might be reading, writing, gardening, knitting. The best way to get in the flow and stay there is to do things that are creative and that you love.

9. Savor Life’s Joys

Take time to smell the roses, or the coffee! Whatever floats your boat. You need to slow down in order to appreciate exactly what you have around you. Deep happiness cannot exist in a constant state of motion. Take a chill pill and enjoy a snooze under the tree.

10. Commit To Your Goals

Magical things start to occur when we focus on what it is we are trying to achieve. If you don’t know what you want, how do you expect to get it. Find out what it is and go for it!

11. Practice Spirituality

When we practice spirituality, we tap into nature and all that surrounds us. Getting in touch with ourselves is a great place to start as is recognizing that we are all connected and one. Just remember. Anything someone else can do, so can you.

12. Take Care Of Your Body

Your body is your temple, it is your home and you need to treat it with care. It is critical that you think about what you let enter it. That includes food, drink and even other people. You wouldn’t fill your petrol tank with sugar, the same goes for your body. Find out the 10 things you should give up to move forward in life here.
