Here are 10 simple ways to beat the blues and add well being!:

1.  Take time outside- even on a cold or dreary day fresh air is a mood booster, as is sunshine’s vitamin D.

2.  Face time with a friend and if possible a happy person- it’s contagious!

3.  Listen to music, an instant mood – dopamine booster! Dopamine is the neurotransmitter that regulates the brain’s pleasure center – which also gets a boost from sex and food! 🙂

4.  Move.  A 20 minute workout can improve your mood for up to 12 hours!  Do what you like- not necessarily the treadmill.  Take a fun class or walk-run-bike with a friend.

5.  Take a catnap.  A nap can be an incredible mood booster.

6.  Snack if you’re hungry- don’t let low blood sugar make you crabby.

7.  Volunteer: Research shows that volunteerism can significantly increase happiness and life satisfaction.

8.  Render acts of kindness to strangers.

9. SMILE! and act “as if”.

10.  When possible, be around children and pets 🙂

There is an abundance of research on happiness and gratitude.

I’ve made a personal study of it and here are some of my favorite facts and inspirational thoughts on happiness and gratitude.  Enjoy!:

Happy people generally are more forgiving, helpful, and charitable, having better self-control, and are more tolerant of frustration than unhappy people.

 A 30 percent increase in one spouse’s happiness boosts the other spouse’s happiness, while a drop in one spouse’s happiness drags the other down.

 Yeats:  “We are happy when we are growing.”

 Did you know that the brain is stimulated by surprise?

 Samuel Jackson: “The business of the wise man is to be happy”.

 Research shows that acting in an outgoing, talkative, adventurous or assertive way makes people- even introverts-feel happier.

 Making and sticking to a decision is a source of happiness because it gives you a sense of control, of efficacy, of responsibility.

 At time of financial stress, taking control of your finances- even symbolically- can boost your mood because you’re taking steps to control and improve your situation.

 Gratitude is important to happiness.  Studies show that consistently grateful people are happier and more satisfied with their lives; they even feel more physically healthy and spend more time exercising.

 Gratitude fosters forbearance- it’s harder to feel disappointed with someone when you are feeling grateful toward him or her.

 Gratitude connects you to the natural world, because one of the easiest things to feel grateful for is the beauty of nature. 

 Studies show that happier people are more likely to help other people.

Happier people are more interested in social problems.  They do more volunteer work and contribute more to charity.

 One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy.

One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself!

 Publius Syrus: “No man is happy who does not think himself so”

Saint Therese:  I take care to appear happy and especially to be so.”

 A small child typically laughs more than four hundred times a day, and an adult- seventeen times. 

Laughter can boost immunity and lower blood pressure and cortisol levels and increases people’s tolerance for pain. 

 Often a laughter response to someone’s  exasperation turns the situation around.  A story from Saint Therese:  p.264 The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

 Tolstoy: ” Nothing, can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness.”

Want warm glows and feelings of happiness?  Try the power of giving!

 Research supports that the power of giving makes people feel good and that those who spend more of their income on others are happier than people who spend more on themselves.  Research from neuroscience suggests these people aren’t just saying their generosity feels good because they think they’re supposed to. Instead, studies have shown that the psychological rewards of kindness are reflected in the neural circuitry of the brain.

No study has directly measured brain activity in people who spend on others vs. those who spend on themselves. Charitable giving makes  the  “feel-good” parts of people’s brains light up in studies, particularly when the giving was totally voluntary, like feeling a  “warm glow,” that pleasant feeling we get from doing something nice for someone else.

Giving also triggered activity in the parts of the brain which are known to light up when we think about moral issues.

 Researchers also found that when participants made their charitable donations, the activity in these “moral processing” areas of the brain was greater among people who volunteered more in real life!
