For the life of me, whenever I see happy people, I can’t help but think that there’s just something about them.
They have this mysterious charisma that truly makes them exude that happiness. They have that X-factor. They are “that guy”, that class clown back in high school who keeps cracking jokes and even smiles when he or she gets in trouble.
And then I realized something. I noticed that they do things not just differently, but on another level. You can call the next level even.
Their enthusiasm, happiness, joy and zest for life are a result of how they carry themselves in life. They do everything in order to feel happy.
Here’s 7 things happy people do eagerly all the time
1) They grab opportunities
This is done without too much thinking.
The thing is, it’s an opportunity. It’s meant to be grabbed. Happy people take them and accept whatever results that come. It doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad, because they know they gave it a shot and that’s most important.
They are happy because they can look back knowing no stone was left unturned.
2) They celebrate
I think it’s kind of sad that a lot of people push aside celebrations, calling their birthdays “just another day” or Christmas a tired holiday where they have to spend money on others.
Happy people take it as chance to celebrate. It’s a reason to live it up and have fun.
Honestly, if you can’t be happy even on specially selected occasions or festivals, then how do you think you can be happy on any normal given day?
Celebrate whenever you can. No one else will do it for you.
3) They sleep
Another sad thing. People take it as a norm that sleeping isn’t an entitlement any more or that one isn’t allowed to sleep much if they want success.
I get it. We all have to work or we want to hustle and be as productive as possible, but sleep is a necessity in life! You absolutely need to recharge and rest up to well, live.
And if you aren’t getting enough sleep, you aren’t going to be happy since you lack energy altogether. So sleep. Your body wants to be happy too. Don’t belittle sleep.
4) They help others
Happy people are kind people. They help the less fortunate and show compassion. This is eagerly done without fail.
In return, also without fail, they gain some positivity knowing that they made this world a better place. And positivity always has happiness in the package.
So if you want to be happy, start helping others. Sometimes, that’s the only solution for all your happiness-draining problems.
5) They brush it aside
You know how it is. Sometimes something else drains your happiness, like an annoying friend, that guy who cut you off on the road or the crappy weather. It can be aggravating because it’s out of your control.
But that’s okay. Having total control doesn’t mean you’d be happy anyway. So brush it aside. Happy people shake off the bad stuff in life and just continue on being awesome as they focus on doing what they want.
Don’t let the little bad things drain you any further. Brush it all off.
6) They find the solution
Unhappy people complain about the problem. Then they tell others that they have the “right” to be unhappy because of said problems. They say it’s understandable too.
Happy people on the other hand, start being resourceful and scout for the solution. Because there’s no use complaining and it doesn’t help with anything.
So if you want to be happy, just try your best and find the solution. You’ll be surprised how capable you actually are. That gives pride. And that gives happiness.
7) They travel
Travelling IS a big deal. You get to absorb different cultures and relish in the wondrous sights of the world. That alone brings joy as you expand your mind.
Happy people are happy because they get to travel and have travelled. You can’t be unhappy once you see what’s out there. You’d be more thankful in fact. So travel whenever you can. See the world for what it is and think about your life.
