The internet is full of research on how to be happier. Take some of these ideas and play with them.
Firstly, this research suggests that just noticing the natural environment: the tree by the bus stop, the roses on your doorstep, can make you happier.
- Count your blessings.
- Imagine an alternative reality where something good never happened (then come back to the reality and be happy).
- Remember something bad that happened, then work out how it was a blessing in disguise.
- Write someone a letter of gratitude (and read it to them!).
