Proper Rest and Sleep

You can never buy a good night's sleep however you can manage getting it on your own and that too for free. A person who hasn't had ample rest and sleep can never enjoy the nicer moments and feel happy. If you see someone happy and excited throughout the day, be sure that they had a good sleep the night before. Image Courtesy: Getty

Most people who are happy and have control over their lives, find joy in exercise. They never miss on their exercise regime and feel better every time; they exercise. Exercise increases the amount of happy chemicals released in your brain, making you feel happier. Image Courtesy: Getty

Helping Others

Sometimes happiness comes from selfless deeds that are done for others. Happy people perform random and senseless acts of kindness. There is a decrease in blood pressure as well as activation in the reward center of the brain. The act of kindness positively affects the one performing the act, the one receiving it and anyone else who happens to see it. Image Courtesy: Getty
