Who doesn’t want to be happy, right? But sometimes it’s hard which is where these tips to boost your happiness come in. They’re like a giant dose of sunshine, are super easy to implement, and don’t require a lot of equipment. Better yet, they’re really good for your health, your skin and your waist line. All in all, a slam dunk, right?
Eat 8 Fruits & Veggies a Day
In a recent study conducted by the American Journal of Public Health, researchers found that eating 8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day will boost your happiness. In fact, the difference between eating 0 servings of produce a day and 8 servings a day was equivalent to landing a job after being unemployed. That’s a whole lot of happy. Scientists think it’s due to the fact that all those vitamins in the produce bump up your serotonin level.
Sing in the Shower
Next time that you’re sudsing up in the shower, try getting in touch with your inner Adele. It’s a fast and easy way to boost your happiness level. Turns out that singing oxygenates your blood which is good for your mood and your heart. So, I don’t care if you sound like a dying cat in mating season, it’s time to embrace your inner Madonna. Or Béyonce. Or…. well, you get the idea.
