Did you know that your mindset has a huge impact on your health and well-being? Researchers hav found that people who overall have a happy attitude are more likely to be healthy than those who do not have the positive mindset?
So, I have put together 5 Simple Strategies for helping you to live a longer, happier, and healthier life.
1. Get Social!
Get out there and have some fun with other people! You do not want to live your life sitting inside watching TV alone! How can that lead to a happy and healthy life? It is important to find people you enjoy to be around.
Go have a BBQ. Meet people in your community through activities at your local community center. You can also interact with others, have fun, and help your community by volunteering!
2. Laugh multiple times a day!
What makes you laugh? When was the last time you found yourself really enjoying the activity you were engaged in? What were you doing? Did the time just fly by? Learn what makes you happy and what you enjoy and do it often!
3. Count your blessings!
You have been blessed. Think about how blessed you are. Look around you and what do you see? Do you have some great friends and family? Do you have a beloved pet or comfortable home or job? Do you have air conditioning during this hot summer season? What have you been blessed with?
I personally went through a natural disaster where I lost every belonging I had. It was at that moment that I truly felt blessed despite the disaster. I have a wonderful husband, family, friends, and a ton of support! You don’t have to go through losing all your belongings! Look around you today and find what you are truly blessed with!
4. Take up some hobbies!
What do you enjoy doing? Do you like putting things together? Working on your car? Scrapbooking? Sports? What hobbies do you have that contribute to your happiness? Find time to engage in these activities often!
5. Get active!
What activities that get you up and moving do you enjoy? Do you like to go hiking, play tennis, walk your dog, play with your kids, or go exploring? What activities do you enjoy that will help you increase your physical activity level?
By increasing your social calendar, doing what you love, getting active, and laughing often, you’ll find yourself living a happier life in which you are going to have the time of your life! Get out there and have some fun!
