It is the little things we do or experience every day that make our life happy. It is important to keep doing these “happy things” for oneself to keep your happy balance positive. Because life is a full bucket: sometimes we gain and sometimes we lose, sometimes we are in love and sometimes we are lonely, sometimes we laugh and sometimes we cry. Happy and sad is about your emotions. If we can manage to achieve a happy balance in our day to day life then when bad things happen we will not be off-balanced that profoundly. We will be able to overcome our sadness faster because our happy balance was positive for a long while.
Our life is full of good things and there is much to be thankful for. We all have certain things in our life, friends, and experiences that add a sense of peace to what we do and how we live every day of our lives.
Here I put together a list of 20 simple little things that make me happy. Doing some of these things from my happy list every day is what helps me lead a more balanced and relaxed life. My suggestion: write your own happy list and commit to doing 3 of those happy things from your list every day. And see the difference!
