How To Raise Your Level of Happiness

Happiness can sometimes feel elusive if we continually find ourselves in a funk and feeling miserable. When you're in that situation, what you need is a way to instantly snap out of it and cheer yourself up. The good news is that it's often perfectly possible to do this and make yourself cheerful and smiley again. You just need the right way to go about it so you can get an instant mood boost.

UNDERSTANDING THE MECHANISMS OF HAPPINESS

Happiness or sadness is ultimately defined by our neurotransmitters. As I stated in my last press release, there are chemicals that make us feel happier and chemicals that make us feel sad or stressed. Getting into a good mood is all about triggering the right ones. If it's happiness you're looking for, then serotonin is what you need. 

As it happens, there are plenty of things you can do to boost serotonin and the other endorphins. One of the easiest ways to do this is spending time in the company of good friends. Even just smiling can make us feel happier as the rush of endorphins releases. Exercise is great for this, too. 

THE HAPPINESS CAVEAT

Here's the problem, though... 

If you're feeling low, the last thing you want to do is spend time with friends or exercise or smile. When you're low, you want to wallow, but you need to smile to feel better, and you need to feel better to smile. It's a Catch 22. The first solution then is to get a grip of yourself and to make yourself be more positive in the situation.

Acknowledge that you're simply a victim of your own brain chemistry and force yourself to accept that invitation to hang out with friends or exercise. Better yet, just listen to some of your favorite happy music. This is a great way to release those "happiness" endorphins. You're likely to find you don't want to do this, though, and would rather listen to sad music. 

Try this...

Create a playlist that starts with downbeat music that gradually gets more upbeat and happier. This is one of the very best ways to gradually improve your mood and get yourself out of a funk. 

It's my hope that you find this article helpful and will remember some of these tips the next time you find yourself feeling blue. If we take time to actually think about it, we truly can raise our default level of happiness.

All the best,

Crystal King
