14 Timeless Ways to Live a Happy Life

How we achieve happiness can be different for each one of us. Our passions, expectations, life experiences, and even our personalities all contribute to the level of happiness we experience in our lives. Some find happiness in their careers while others prefer the bliss found in their marriages or other intimate relationship.

No matter how you define happiness for yourself, there are certain universal and time-proven strategies to bring, and sustain, more happiness into your life. The following 14 ways to live a happy life can be adapted and even customized to fit your needs. Over time, these strategies will become positive and life-changing habits that will begin to bring more happiness, joy and peace into your life.

1. Notice What’s Right

Some of us see the glass as being half-full, while others see the glass as half-empty. The next time you are caught in traffic, begin thinking how nice it is to have a few moments to reflect on the day, focus on a problem you have been trying to solve, or brainstorm on your next big idea. The next time you get in the slow line at the grocery store, take the opportunity to pick up a tabloid magazine and do some “guilty pleasure” reading. Take all that life throws out you and reframe it with what’s right about the situation. At the end of the day, you will more content, at peace and happy. Take the time to begin to notice what’s right and see the world change in front of your eyes.

2. Be Grateful

How many times do you say the words “thank you,” in a day? How many times do you hear these same words? If you are doing the first thing, saying the “thank yous,” the latter will naturally happen. Learn to be grateful and you will be open to receive an abundance of joy and happiness.

3. Remember the Kid You Were

Do you remember how to play? I’m not referring to playing a round of golf or a set of tennis. I’m talking about playing like you did when you were a child – a game of tag; leap frog, or street baseball when the bat is a broken broom handle and the bases are the parked cars. One way to find or maintain your happiness is to remember the kid you were and play!

4. Be Kind

There is no question that by merely watching acts of kindness creates a significant elevation in our moods and increases the desire for us to perform good deeds as well. Kindness is indeed contagious and when we make a commitment to be kind to ourselves and to others we can experience new heights of joy, happiness and enthusiasm for our lives.

5. Spend Time with Your Friends

Although an abundant social and romantic life does not itself guarantee joy, it does have a huge impact on our happiness. Learn to spend time with your friends and make the friendships a priority in your life.

6. Savor Every Moment

To be in the moment is to live in the moment. Too often we are thinking ahead or looking ahead to the next event or circumstance in our lives, not appreciating the “here and now.” When we savor every moment, we are savoring the happiness in our lives.

7. Rest

There are times when we need the time to unwind, decompress, or to put it simply, just “to chill.” Life comes at all of us hard and fast. Time, as do the days on the calendar, keeps going forward at its own natural pace, which is not always the pace we would choose. Fatigue, stress and exhaustion may begin to settle in on us faster than we may think, or notice. The best remedy for this is indeed rest.

8. Move!

The expression a “runner’s high” does not infer an addiction, but a feeling or a state of mind – a state of euphoria. There is no question exercise, or any physical exertion, elevates your mood and enhances a more positive attitude as well as fosters better personal self-esteem and confidence. Indeed, one way to increase your happiness is to move!

9. Put on a Happy Face

Sometimes we have to fake it until we make it. I’m not suggesting that we not be honest, real or authentic, but I’m suggesting, sometimes, we just need to put on a happy face and keep moving forward. Researchers claim that smiling and looking like we are happy will indeed make us happier. Studies further show that if we act like we are happy then we can experience greater joy and happiness in our lives.

10. Pursue Your Goals

The absence of goals in our lives, or more specifically avoiding to pursue our goals, makes us feel like we are stuck and ineffective. The pursuit of goals in our personal lives, in our relationships, or with our careers, is the difference between having a mediocre life or a life full of passion and enthusiasm. pursue your goals and watch your happiness soar.

11. Finding Your Calling

Some find meaning in religion or spirituality while others find purpose in their work or relationships. Finding your calling may be much more than accomplishing one simple strategy for increasing your happiness, but having a sense of purpose – of feeling like you are here for a reason – can perhaps bring the greatest joy of all

12. Get into the Flow

Flow is the form of joy, excitement and happiness that occurs when we are so absorbed in an activity we love that we can loose ourselves and time seems to stand still. What creates flow is unique to each one of us. To find and sustain true happiness in our lives, we must get off the sidelines and get into the flow.

13. Play to Your Strengths

One way to achieve flow is by understanding and identifying our strengths and core values, and then begin to use these every day. Once we aware of our strengths and we begin to play to your strengths we can better incorporate them in all aspects of our lives.

14. Don’t Overdo It

Know when to say when. What gives you joy and happiness the first time may not work the second time. Too much of a good thing may begin not to feel as good if the “thing” becomes more of a routine, or an expectation. Set healthy and reasonable boundaries for yourself and don’t overdo it.

      Does that include failure and disappointment? Because either God encompasses all the negative as well as the positive, or he/she/it doesn’t encompass “all”. Either way I’m much more interested in focusing on achieving the real rather than hoping the imaginary will do it for me.

    I agree, as you say, that “How we achieve happiness can be different for each one of us.”

    I will add that the path to a meaningful existence looks different for each of us but the way of finding that path is the same: It is self-awareness.

    Thanks for the post…

    I love what you say about being grateful. A gentleman I interviewed a few months back named Charlie “Tremendous” Jones told me the following:

    “If you’re not grateful for what you have today, what makes you think you’ll be any more grateful when you have more?”

    I love that quote. Good stuff, good post.

    Thanks and take care.

  • Me

    to add onto #1 and #2 — my little trick for when there’s an accident that is causing terrible bumper to bumper traffic (very common in the washington dc area), instead of getting road rage, i think about how grateful i am that it was not ME in the car wreck. and then i say a little prayer for whoever IS in the car wreck. that little change in attitude helps me realize what’s important.

  • http://quote-pics.blogspot.com Julian

    No. 4 is the main one I think, if more people followed that we’d all be a lot better off. Not just by being kind but by actively looking for ways to make the world a better place and then getting up and actually doing them.

  • alex

    i’ll take care of the dose of pessimism:

    all these are self-evident.

    1. be kind to others
    2. be kind to yourself
    3. enjoy

    just like every one of the other “guides to a happy life” i’ve seen. sorry to rain on the parade. guess i’ve broken rule #1

    • Seth

      Alex

      You are correct that these are self-evident and “just like every one of the other ‘guides to a happy life’”. But that’s the exact reason they are “timeless” and not innovative. There is always room for a reminder, lest we forget such basic and self-evident truths.

    Positive attitude will enable people to have a unique way to look at the world from another angle. In their mindset, everything is possible to achieve. If they face a problem or they make a mistake, they will bounce back from it and they will find a solution to solve it. That’s why if we focus on the positive aspect of things, we will be happier and we will be able to achieve anything.

Every single person in this world is different from one another. So for everyone there is a new way to be happy. So it is totally your own decision how you want to be happy in your life.

    you skipped some basics. be healthy and take care of your body, shelter and make it very difficult to lose it, food and unless you kill or grow it, you need a money to buy it. I think your list wouldn’t mean much to people that don’t have these. my life is much easier knowing my basics covered.

    Wow, I love the idea of people that are searching for something that brings them joy, happiness and calmness, I love even more people that write about different ways (which are always simple) to achieve or simply to live happy. I would say that if you can only find happiness on something that doesn’t depend exclusively on yourself, your happiness will always depend on an external factor, you will depend on others or something to be happy, your happiness will vary and the worst part, you won’t control it, external things will control it. Be happy with yourself, love yourself.
     Cheers!

  • Angelakaur

    specify what kind of activity??!! why do not people give clear solutions?!! Is there anyone who has genuinely experienced depression? These are general guideness, and would be surely useful, but for only those who are already happy and all this would just give them mere motivation to carry on in the same state. You talk about savoring your surroundings.. what about a teenager going through depression, reading this post because his/her surroundings are sombre. People who are happy can relate these points. because, a person would be happy if he or she actually have savouring surroundings or activities that they actually enjoy. And its difficult to identify interests for a person so messed up.

    Great article.. I agree to all of them as I myself do most of what you’ve said above. I’m an optimist and I specially love the no. 1 Notice What’s right, I think many people really forget to see the right things in life. Great work!

    Life teaches us how to live grateful,
    even if we are not so yet, there is some appointment nearly in future that
    cause to learn it deeply, and that is why I’m in the battle with this very
    disease called Cancer!!!

    Everything in our life has a reason that lies in past, with all those pessimistic
    or optimistic visions about events in our life, keeping this in mind that what
    I am doing right now has a direct or indirect reflection nearly in future can
    help us think and act in the way that is safe and meaningful.
