While everyone wants to be happy, only very few people are good at being happy no matter what the circumstance. Most of the time, people hear or observe something and then react to it by feeling bad. If it’s not that, people blame a problem, a person or situation for their lack of happiness.

However, you need to know that happiness is really a decision and there’s no one else who can make you truly happy except you. In this article, however, we’re going to outline some tips to help you feel better. Decide now to follow these tips regularly and we guarantee you will feel happier.

If you’re constantly feeling bad, it would help if you ask yourself why you’re feeling bad. Take the time to sit down, ask yourself and wait for the answer to come to you. And when you do find the answer, address the issue. If there’s someone you had a falling out with, call him or her. If it’s something else, then do what you can to solve it. If it’s because of something that happened in your past, let it out and cry. The idea is to “drain” yourself of all negativity so that you can be more positive.

Exercise. You may not know it yet, but exercising actually sends more oxygen to your brain and releases brain chemicals that make you feel good. It doesn’t matter what type of exercise you do as long as you do it consistently and it makes you happy to do it.

Take control of your mind. Most of the time, feeling bad is caused by uncontrolled thoughts during the day that make us feel bad. Live in the moment that you are in now. Don’t think about the past or worry about the future because present is really all that we have right now. If you have problems controlling your mind, do yoga everyday and learn meditation.

Yoga is seven thousand year-old practice of animal postures to control the body’s glands. Meditation, on the other hand, involves concentrating your mind to one point to the exclusion of everything else. The two practices combined will help you to concentrate better in the moment and to control your thoughts.

Most people who do yoga and meditate feel a deep sense of well being that they haven’t found anywhere else.
