Top 10 Happiness Tips

Retain Your Key Employees

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

  • John Lennon

Being truly happy is sometimes easier said than done. Here are our 10 quick tips that followed regularly can boost your happiness and outlook.

  1. Carry out a good deed every day. This can be anything from opening a door for someone to simply saying the words ‘please’ and ‘thank you!’
  2. Smile. Sometimes just making yourself physically smile can put you in a better frame of mind.
  3. PMA. Positive Mental Attitude. Try to not always focus on the negative, focus on what is good in your life. Always think, is everything as bad as it seems. Is a delayed train really the end of the world?
  4. Be thankful. On your way to work or while you are making a hot drink, take a few minutes out of your day to focus on three good things in your life and three things you are most thankful for.
  5. Do not underestimate praise. Not only will you make someone else happy but seeing their reaction can boost your own morale.
  6. How many people do you wish ‘Good Morning’ to on your way to work? Obviously in cities this can be tricky with hundreds of people walking towards you; however smiling and saying hello to just a few people every morning can give you a happiness boost.
  7. Be confident in yourself. Every morning pick one feature or aspect of your personality that you love.
  8. Do not compare yourself to other people. You are unique, focus on your own achievements and not other people’s.
  9. Write each good thing that happens to you on a piece of paper, fold it up and put it in a jar and reflect on the good memories whenever you feel you are being particularly negative.
  10. Be happy in your job and working environment. Working in a job that you love and an enjoyable working environment is beneficial to your outlook and will improve your happiness too.
