10 things to make you happier

Happiness is key in life so take a look at these 10 things I believe will make you a happier person. 

  1. Make a plan for you weekend- We get way to focused on work or school throughout the week that having a boring weekend planned doesn't recuperate or refresh you. Plan a trip to the beach or organize to go for a coffee with a friend because although you want some time to relax, it's important to give yourself something to look forward to.
  2. Eat something really 'naughty'- When you're feeling a little down the perfect way to boost your mood is to eat something knowing that your really shouldn't. 
  3. Choose your friends wisely- Take yourself away from those who suck your positivity away and hang around with those who bring out the best in you.
  4. Laugh- Laughing not only makes you feel so much better (scientifically it releases a 'feel good' hormone called serotonin) but if you're lucky it might give you an ab workout. 
  5. Allow yourself to love- let yourself love people, just don't allow yourself to rely on them for happiness.
  6. Work out- In whatever way you like, it releases endorphin's which make you feel great. Exercise will also improve you mental attitude to everyday life, it's an accomplishment.  
  7. Don't give up- If you've already come so far then giving up can't be an option. Everything happens for a reason and nothing should ever stir your mind away from the reason you haven't given up yet (wow, deep).
  8. Do something for somebody else- This can include the smallest of kind gestures, for example giving your friend a card to make them feel better, positivity and happiness are contagious.
  9. Tidy that draw or room you've been meaning to tidy for ages- Doing something as simple as tidying can really put yourself into a sense of accomplishment which leads to feeling happy with yourself. 
  10. Believe in yourself- Allow yourself to have the wildest dreams because you're the only one who can make them happen. My challenge to you; right now go and do something that is going to take you one step closer to your dream, however small that thing is. 

Hope this post brightens up your day or week if you are feeling sad and remember there is always a reason to be happy.
