  1. I’m not sure what changed when I moved from Canada to California – but I instantly became happier. I love my life down here now (probably because I won’t have to deal with the cold and snow!)

  2. I keep telling my sweetie that he would be so much happier if he found a hobby. Mine is art, reading and writing…so I am always set when I need something to help pass the time or relax. Right now, I’ve been doing a lot of Artist Trading Cards…and swapping art with people all over the world.

  3. I truly believe that surrounding yourself with positive people is essential, I have totally weeded out all the negative Nellys in my life and it is so drama free right now, which goes a long way in being positive!

  4. Well lets see if I can stop screaming at the kids this evening for being too wild and crazy, I think my happiness with start then. LOL Putting taking care of rambunctious kids aside and the exhaustion that comes with that every day, I think I’m happiest when I count my blessings and realize all I have to be grateful for.

  5. I agree with making healthier choices when it comes to the food we eat. While some may not see its benefits, I’d felt different when I started to eat clean & eat right. I would also like to add to this list that people ought to develop & cultivate an attitude of gratitude instead of having a hateful vibe. It will make the world a better place 🙂

  6. New hobbies and healthier foods really do help. Going for long walks is also a great mood booster 🙂

  7. Healthier foods really can make a huge difference in how you feel. When you eat like crap, you feel like crap & who could be happy with that?!

  8. These are awesome ideas to start being happier. I believe the key is to change how you think and make it positive. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I’m so glad that I saw this post. Thanks for this great list. I am always telling myself that I wish I was happier, I will have to try these and so what it does for me.

  10. great list. I especially love the point about spending time with positive people. The company you keep really does have a big effect on you. I try to surround myself with positive supportive folks.
