5 minute happiness tricks - infographic

Ever gave a thought about the simplest way to be happy? Here is the answer which will end your search: the easiest way to be happy is to believe that you are happy. This is the gist of the book ‘The Secret’ written by Rhonda Byrne. It appears to be simple but the tough part is to execute it. Don’t worry, we can breakdown this so called tough job and make it easier for you.

A normal human being’s mood can be easily changed; the task is to identify which are the actions or behaviours that contribute to that change. These vary from person to person, but there are a few actions which are applicable to everyone. These actions have the potential to make you happy in just minutes by transforming your mood.

Join a message board

Happiness is abundant when you are with your family, or with the person you love, or with people you like. If physical presence is not possible or if you do not have any such people, then message boards are always there for you. You can find like-minded people and can connect with them. Difference in opinions can put you under stress unknowingly but, conversely, when you share similar thoughts with others it relaxes your mind in the same way.

Flip through old photos

Photos and videos have the greatest ability to capture the moments which we can be relished in the future. They can take you to the past and flash those memories. Flipping through old photographs is always fun, it can change your mood instantly and make you happy. Recollecting good old days through photographs can relieve stress in no time.

Pop some chocolate

Sometimes we need to regulate the mood through supplements. Don’t think about some dangerous supplements. There is one which is available in every nook and corner of your place – and most importantly, it is legal. You got it right; it is chocolate. Chocolate has a chemical called phenylethylamine, and it has all potential to regulate your mood positively.

Take a breather

Experts say that most of the people don’t know how to breathe properly. Yes, you read it right. Breathing in a systematic way sends out the bad air present in your body and lightens the mood. Nadi shodhana is one of the techniques in yoga which can eliminate the negative vibrations instantly and awaken the optimistic you.

Call your top five

No matter what, everyone will have a list of favorite people in their life. Whenever you feel low, do not hesitate; just pick your mobile phone and start dialing. They are your doctors who don’t charge you any fee. Talking to them can divert your mood and make you feel happier.

These are just a few simple techniques. Remember that happiness lies within.
