How to Master Happiness in 15 Simple Ways

There’s no perfection in mastering the art of happiness. It is learning from our daily life that we get in tune with what matters and what doesn’t. Are you tired of the mundane? Is it draining your energy to its last bit? 
Then, it is time for a little change. Something we can teach ourselves to be a little happier every day.

15 Simple ways to master happiness every day:

  1. Be Grateful

A grateful heart awakens the soul and lets joy come in. Count on your blessings and never your shortcomings. Always practice gratitude.

  • It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack. – Germany Kent

2. Practice Forgiveness

It is the key to a more meaningful life. Forgiveness, a decision to let go of resentment or vengeance. It is what we do for ourselves to let go and move on. 

  • The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.  – Gandhi

3. Be Kind

Kindness. It doesn’t matter if it is big or small. Helping someone without asking for anything in return is as powerful as the mightiest supernatural powers.

  • The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention. -Anonymous

4. Keep a Journal

The power of writing. Make it a habit, write your way to happiness. Expressing your feelings through writing helps you process and blackout the negative ones, allowing more space for positive emotions. Write more about joy rather than pain.

  • Journal writing is a voyage to the interior. ― Christina Baldwin

5. Be an optimist

Resilience. The power of positive thinking! Believing in positivity makes you happier and healthier. It is a chain reaction. Find the good and be grateful for it.

  • How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. – Anne Frank

6. Live in the moment

When you focus your attention on what’s happening right now, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you become more aware of your thoughts. There are times that we drift our thoughts about the past or the future. However, we need to learn how to redirect those thoughts and pay attention to the moment. Today is important.

  • The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. – Eleanor Roosevelt

7. Savor good memories

Scientists claimed that the more positive memories we have, the more positive outlook we have in life and the world around us. Our brains tend to dwell on the negative ones. But the good thing is, we can help it by collecting and keeping more good memories by savoring the positive experiences and emotions.

  • We should learn to savor some moments to let time feel worth existing. – Munia Khan

8. Don’t worry about what others think of you

Tune out gossips. If it’s not true, it will die out. You don’t have to fill your mind with worries. So, don’t!

  • Care about people’s approval, and you will always be their prisoner. – Lao Tzu

9. Cut out negativity

If you want to improve your life and stay happy, then cut out the negativity and toxicity in your life. What do you consider unhealthy? Is the situation mentally and emotionally draining? Then it is time to step away and move on. It is not worth your life.

  • Two kinds of people to avoid in your life; 1. Those who love your lies and 2. Those who hate your truth. Avoid them. – Israelmore Ayivo

10. Take risks

If it makes you feel good, do it! We only live once, do not waste it. Experiencing things in life will make us feel alive. So, take those risks and enjoy life.

  • Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. – Helen Kelle

11. Watch the sunrise or sunset

It is for free, and it happens 365 days a year. There’s a burst of beneficial effect sunshine has in our mood because it boosts our serotonin. Be grateful for that moment when you see the beautiful color and light. The magical stillness brings healing to our soul.

  • Each time I see a beautiful sunset or sunrise, I have to pinch myself because I can’t believe that I’m awake and not dreaming. – Anthony T. Hincks

12. Read a book

Allowing your mind to break away from the norm can boost your happiness. So, open up a good book and let your imagination run wild.

  • Books are a uniquely portable magic. – Stephen King

13. Smile

It can lower your stress, lift your mood, and boost your immune system! Smile often and be happy, it is the small things in life.

  • More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate. – Roy T. Bennet

14. Treat yourself with love

Be gentle with yourself. Remind yourself that you are lovable, you are worthy, and you are more than enough. You cannot preach what you don’t practice. So, start with yourself and everything else will follow.

  • It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack. – Germany Kent

15. Learn to rest

Time and time again, we often have setbacks in life. Take a break and think about how to achieve your goals. Strategize, change, but always get back up. Do not quit!
