Be Happy in Life – 5 Tips

Be Happy in Life

Who would not like to live a happy life? Everybody is praying to God for a happy life, quite literally! Happiness cannot be measured in terms of your financial gain, or success. Everybody has their own kind of happiness, which would help them live a happy life. So, be happy in life. Happiness is a feeling of inner peace and satisfaction. It is usually experienced when there are no worries, fears or obsessing thoughts.

1. Be Like a Baby

Have you watched a happy baby? Have you ever wondered why it stays happy? It does not want anything from life and is not bothered about what people have to say about him. He is simply happy being himself, doing what he likes doing and enjoying every moment.

They simply offer unconditional love to you and you reciprocate. However, happiness means different things for everybody. But in this competitive world, where success and position have taken the largest share of engaging you in your daily life (and has also become the target of one’s life), it becomes important that you find time to relax and enjoy the small things that life has to offer.

Value the little things that give you joy and happiness in life. Bliss is an absolute state of delight. Contentment is a kind of happiness that does not crave simplistic desire fulfillment.

2. Be Happy in Life and Look for Happiness in Smaller Things

Happiness does not always come in big packages, there are smaller things in life that can make you happy and bring a smile to your face. The more often you smile, the more you feel happy inside and have a positive approach towards life. This is a big cycle. If you feel good, you do good things for others, and in turn you feel happy about what you have done. This reflects on your lifestyle and you find contentment in life thus making you a happy man.

3.Pay Attention to Your Behavior- Make it Positive

But everything does not stay the same all the year round and one has to live life as it comes. Small deeds can affect your life in many ways. For example you can be kind to others in small ways. You can serve people by helping an old man to get into the elevator or cross the street, help a neighbor who has a car break down etc.

Stop criticizing people on a daily basis. This could make you vulnerable to negative energy. Criticizing can make you unhealthy as well. Instead look out for the goodness in people and try to be appreciative of others. You can praise them for small reasons which they will remember you for. Stay away from negative people; they can harm your thoughts.

4. Relaxing is the Key

Relaxing is the key to happiness. Find time to spend with your family and children. This helps in relaxing and you know the purpose of your living a fully-fledged happy life. Never hurry into anything. Or do not force yourself into things that you do not believe in. if you are reluctant about doing something and your inner voice is stopping you from the same then you obey the command. Remember, your gut feeling is always right.

5. Forget and Forgive

Let bygones be bygones. Holding grudges and the thought of revenge can take the whole life out of you, leaving you with a dreaded feeling of hate and anger. Forgetting and forgiving can help you be happier then thinking of revenge. Be happy in life. You can’t live your life in fear of what can go wrong. You just need to go out and live your life to the fullest and know that you’ll be happy, even if something doesn’t go the way that you had planned it to.


Try to be compassionate towards yourself as well. You can be good to yourself once in a while and have a treat. Be happy in life. Day and night, one aches for few and fleeting moments of happiness and contentment, that will brace them for going about the routine of life, which may not give them any joy. Such is the quest for happiness.

Happiness, which is often thought of as a fairly simple concept, is actually more than what people assume it is. Although this natural mood or feeling is desired by numerous people, it is very elusive and therefore, extremely difficult to obtain. Happiness is frequently sought after but not gained.
