The best way to live a happy life

A happy life begins inside us. Happiness and contentment emanate from us, and spread outward. People who are happy have a perfect life, look forward to the day when they wake up in the morning, happily do everyday things, love the people around them, and go to bed satisfied in the evening. It is true that unfortunate things happen to happy people, but because of their attitude towards life, they find it easier to cope with hardships, accidents and problems.

Are you happy and content with your life? Would you like to improve it? Below I will share some tips, suggestions and secrets that can improve the quality of our lives.

Start of the day

Create a unique morning routine that should become a habit. The routine should consist of activities that will make you happy and motivate you to get out of bed as soon as possible. It should last as long as you can take it – from a few minutes to an hour. Example: smile at yourself when you look in the mirror; tell yourself you love yourself, do some exercise to wake up your body; do a breathing exercise to wake up your brain, choose a positive quote of the day that will accompany you throughout the day, write it down and carry it with you; say some inspiring affirmations… Below I will list suggestions from which you can choose the ones that appeal to you, you find it fun and you will be happy to implement them.

End of the day

Just like in the morning, create a bedtime routine for the evening and make it a habit. Let this routine be just your time that you give to yourself. It can only take a few minutes, but it can be longer. Example: read a few pages of a book that inspires you, read a poem; give thanks for today and for everything that happened during the day; listen to soothing music; perform a meditative relaxation of the body before going to bed… The following are suggestions that you can put together on your own.

You can create shorter morning and evening routines during the week and longer ones during the weekend. You can experiment with activities to find out which ones suit you best. But stick to the routine. By devoting time to yourself, you show yourself self-esteem.

Tips for morning and evening routine

12. Learn something new each day – broadens your horizons and your knowledge;

13. Listen to soothing music – to calm the mind and relax the body;

    Hello Nina, 

    There are so many ways to get yourself into the right mood and be a better person, but you’ll have to first have the right mindset and work towards it. These are very good tips and exercising and reading thought provoking books, journals and articles have been very effective for me and I hope it works for other people too.

    Hi Nina, I would like you to know that after reading your “Tips for morning and evening routine” I am going to start a few of them today.

    The ones I will knock off the list this week will be, to stretch and exercise, the breathing technique, dancing to my favorite music, and making a plan for the next day!

    I do a couple of these already (dancing to my favorite music) but I know I need to do more.

    I will revisit and bookmark your page so I can knock off the rest of the morning and evening routine.

    Very nice post, its just one thing you can not be positive all the time. That is not realistical. Humans feel different emotions through out the day. One of them is going to be saddnes, anger or other ones we call negative. Ita perfectly normal to feel them. Ignoring them or denying them is going to have more inpact then accepting it, dealing with them and moving on. But over all its a very helpful post with very valid points made.

      I agree, it’s only natural that we sometimes have negative emotions as well, but with an overall positive approach to life, we find it easier to cope, understand them, and react maturely.
