Top 10 Habits of Happy People

Comments (4) January 11, 2013

Are you making a New Year’s Resolution to be happier and healthier this year? We’ve got some tips for you to make 2013 your most successful year yet.

Be Grateful

As the new year begins, surround yourself with the things in your life that make you happy: friends, family, pets. Think about what you are grateful to have, rather than what you don’t have. Also, be sure to show gratitude to others; has your staff been working overtime? Studies show that showing gratitude to your employees can improve work performance.

Take Time for Yourself

Don’t let your hectic schedule get in the way of taking a little time for you. Take a break. What would you do with some more ‘you’ time? Spend time with your kids, maybe volunteering?

Turn off the TV

A study from the University of Maryland correlates TV watching with lower levels of happiness. So turn off the tube and get out there! Take a walk in the park, read a book or try something new. If you watched one less hour of TV a day, what could you accomplish?
