Happiness is a problem that can be solved
Banking Bad. Accept that life is imperfect and recognize that there is beauty and grace in that imperfection. What are you interested in? What are you truly passionate about? Focus on building a career in an area that motivates you and will provide you with a high level of satisfaction, and your happiness factor will go up exponentially. The key is to do it wisely. Spending money on experiences -- travel, dining, concerts and so on -- can make us happier because we are sharing those experiences with others.
Happiness connected to material possessions fades, but experiences help us define our purpose and passions in life.
Our thoughts and feelings often revolve around the past or the future. Reality is what you are experiencing in this very moment; what you are going through right now. Sometimes we want to escape that reality. But when we stay in the present, we are fully engaged in our lives. Find ways to cultivate gratitude on a daily basis. Giving thanks and being grateful for all you have will make you happier and more content. Those gifts may be tangible or intangible. Be generous with your time and your money.
Give to others in need. Give to those you love and care for. Those who are generous in spending money on others tend to have good health, perhaps because giving has a feel-good effect that lowers blood pressure and stress. Part of feeling happy is feeling stimulated, interested and a little surprised by life.
So surprise yourself by setting goals outside your comfort zone.
Put yourself in new or unexpected situations. Set goals for yourself and then work to achieve them. And remember to enjoy the ride! Listening to music lifts our spirits. It makes us feel better, in part because listening to music causes our brains to release dopamine, a neurochemical connected to pleasure and reward. One of the best things you can do to boost your happiness is to just be yourself.
Spend some time getting to know yourself. What defines you? What do you believe in?
Money doesn't buy happiness, but it can help if you use it right.
Who are you, underneath it all? Search for ways to be comfortable in your own skin. Happiness, love, friendship and community go hand in hand. As humans, we have a fundamental need to interact and connect with others. Without meaningful relationships, we are lonely and isolated. Most importantly, stop comparing your things to all the things everyone else has.
Social media has a way of making us feel like everyone else has it better than us. How often does scrolling through your newsfeed make you feel negative emotions? Allowing envy and resentment to take root robs us of appreciating what we have. Start Perfecting Your Craft. Constantly worrying about everything creates toxic anxiety, where your mind is steeped in negative, spiraling thoughts.
Worries plague your mind and make you afraid and apprehensive about things you often have no control over. Sometimes we believe that if we worry enough, we can keep bad things from happening.

Ever hang out with a gloomy person and leave feeling bummed? It turns out that feelings can be transferred from one person to another, and the more we share experiences with one another, the more our emotions and behaviors become synchronized. Studies have shown that the more time we spend in nature, and the more we relate to the natural world around us, the greater our sense of happiness. Why do we love all things retro? Perhaps because nostalgia makes us happy. Our past shapes us and defines our identity. When we remember good times and happy memories, we can increase our self-confidence and feel closer to those around us.
