10 tips to be happier today!

It’s easy to be happy today…the sun is shining, it’s already a beautiful 62 degrees in Michigan and Spring has absolutely SPRUNG!  But, a week ago — that’s right, one week ago, we had snow on the ground and it was grey & cold. 
I’m not sure where you live but Winter kicked out Michigan butts. With 15 snow days IN. A. ROW (and that is coming off of a 2 week Christmas break), I think we all got a bit stir crazy. The temperature was -25 a few times and it was simply a tough few months!  

To get thru that time, or any difficult time where you find yourself getting upset or depressed, try these tips to consistently be a happier person. 

Become a happier person today!! 
.
1. WAKE UP EARLY: Go to bed at a decent hour, getting 7 or 8 hours sleep and you’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new day. If you wake up earlier you are more likely to have a happier and more successful day. If you have trouble falling asleep, try this tea – it works like a charm for me and is a natural & healthy way to snooze!
.
2. FIND YOUR SMILE: And find it daily. Do something that makes you happy right away. Tell yourself something wonderful is going to happen and believe it.
.
3. SEE BEYOND IMPERFECTIONS: Happy people understand that life isn’t going to be flawless. They don’t judge others! They look for the good in people and even in themselves.
.
4. PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK: Happy people are proud of what they do. They recognize when they accomplish something. They finish what they start and they’re always try to become better.
.
5. GET MOVIN’: Go to the gym, go for a walk, or do an at-home workout. After you get your body moving – I promise you won’t regret it.
.
6. BECOME YOUR OWN BESTFRIEND: We can be our own worst enemy or own best friend – it’s up to YOU to decide. Don’t let your mind bring you down and tell you you’re not happy. You deserve to find joy. Love the person in the mirror and think positively about yourself. Need help with this?

.
7. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH HAPPY PEOPLE: Be around people who uplift you and make you feel better. Did you know if you’re constantly with negative people – you are more likely to become negative too? Your environment around you can make you who you are.

.
8. BE GRATEFUL: Don’t take a day for granted. Recognize that every day is a blessing.
.
9. SLOW DOWN: We tend to take on too much. Give yourself a break. Don’t feel like you need to do everything in one day. Do what is best for you.
.
10. MAKE THE BEST OUT OF EVERYTHING: We really do have choices in every situation – choose the highroad – smile, laugh and make the best of it.
