Be Happy… Today!

Happiness for some may be hard to define, but we all know what it feels like.  On the other hand, many of us also know what unhappiness feels like.  So what do we do when we face those times when we can’t find our happy place?  Here are a few suggestions to get you back on the happy train.

  • Smile

Everyone knows a smile is contagious.  If you’re feeling down in the dumps, force a smile and keep smiling.  If you don’t give into that feeling of wanting to smile, you will eventually get the giggles from looking so silly.

  • Smell something that makes you happy

The sense of smell is very powerful and can trigger several moods and reactions.  Why not smell your way to happiness? Sniff your favorite flower, inhale your favorite fragrance, or indulge in the aromas of your favorite food.  When I’m feeling down, I tend to smell lavender.  I not only enjoy the smell, but it also has some calming and relaxing properties.
