55. Don’t Worry About What Others Think of You

Plant flowers in a public park. Pick up litter on the beach. However you choose to give back, the rewards are ten-fold. Volunteering in your local community has been proven to boost self-esteem, fend off depression, and enhance health and fitness.

50. Savor Good Memories

Our brains tend to latch on to negative memories and let go of the good ones. Scientists say the more positive memories we have, the more positive our outlook on life and the world around us. We can help our brains collect and keep more good memories by taking time to savor the positive experiences and emotions from each day before we go to bed each night.

51. Be an Optimist

A positive outlook on life is an important predictor of resilience. People who are optimistic tend to be happier, healthier, and more successful in the workplace.

52. Touch Your Toes

Touching your toes can relieve stress by increasing blood flow to the brain. It also enhances memory and improves circulation. Some health and fitness experts say toe touches can also treat and prevent back pain.

53. Give More Hugs

A warm embrace is good for the soul. Experts say hugging can enhance our mood, lower blood pressure, and relieve stress.

54. Work With Your Hands

Plant a garden. Cook dinner. Play the guitar. Knit a scarf. Manual labor is scientifically proven to boost happiness levels.

Filling your mind with worries about what other people think of you can drain your energy. So don’t. Be your own judge of approval.

56. Shower Yourself With Self-Love

Self-criticism is self-defeating. But if you’re compassionate toward yourself, you can actually make yourself more productive, stronger, and more relaxed. Next time you think negatively about yourself, write down that negative thought. By seeing how hurtful those words appear on paper, you’ll begin to train yourself to stop saying them in your head.

57. Live in the Moment

When you tune out your thoughts and worries about the future and the past, life becomes a lot more manageable. Deadlines, debts, and the items on your to-do list will no longer hang over your head. In fact, people who are mindful about living in the now tend to complete difficult tasks such as a project at work or fitness routine with more ease.

Science tells us that those of us who avoid apologies are happier than those who own up to their blunders. Refusing to apologize actually gives us a sense of power and entitlement, research shows.

60. Hug Yourself

Self-love and acceptance are among the most important keys to happiness. If you’re not happy with yourself, you’re never going to be happy. Forgive yourself. Allow yourself those mistakes you’ve made. Accept yourself for who you are – the good, the bad and all that needs improvement.
