5 Things That Will Make You Happier !!

So I've been having quite a few down days recently due to good old life and it's stresses. I thought I would google "5 ways to be happier" and see what it came up with. I've picked a few from different sites and put my own spin on them to kind of remind my self to be happy. <3


1. Be grateful :

I don't always appreciate what I have, when I feel down it's like I have nothing in life and everything is hopeless.
A few things I have to be grateful for :
-FAMILY (including my fur babies)

2. Be optimistic :

This is the hardest thing for me to ever do I am such a negative person but I am trying to change that (really I ammmm) I've realised when I am down on things I make them worse than they have to be. I'm not one of those people that can just think "It will all be okay in the end" but I wish I was and I will be one day :)


Set your self goals just small ones, I set one - To finally start a blog .... And I DID !!!

3. Count your blessings :

Apparently researches have shown that people who write down 3 good things that have happened to them every week show boost in happiness. Here are my 3 for last week:

- New candles
-Learnt more about blogging
-Cats :) 

4. Use your strengths :

Do what you are good at, find something you are good at, stick at it and it will take you where you want to go.

5. DON'T forget to laugh : 

Laughing is the biggest remedy for  basically anything, on the down days maybe it is hard to find something to laugh about at least I think it is. I think the most important thing is to be around people that make you laugh. A good few years ago I got into the trap/cycle of been with someone that put me down, made me depressed, cheated, abusive it took me another year to find the person I once was.    Here are a few things I do: 
- Cuddle my cats
- Watch funny videos 
- Candles, films, duvet days

What makes you happier?
