In this post, I am going to give my suggestions on How to make every day a Happy Day.
First of all, I would like to remind you that Happiness is a choice, therefore we need to have made the decision to be a happy person.
Once we have made that decision, I mean a proper decision to live a happy life and not just a wish, we need to improve our “happy level”.
How? Our life is a string of moments, so we can just easily increase the happiness moments in our life.
Remember: Happiness comes from within
We need to keep in mind that during any day, obviously “bad unexpected things” can happen. We can’t be immune to that, but we can learn to control our reactions. You might like to read: Top 10 tips to help you get through a tough day
Also the more we are “fit” mentally and physically the better we can overcome any situation.
Write it on your Heart that every Day is the Best Day in the Year.
So what can we do to live a happy day no matter what?
Before I go through my suggestions I would like to tackle a question that I have been asked many times.
“How can I have a happy day if:” “I hate my job, I don’t like my colleagues, I don’t have money, I am in debt, I have got a medical problem, my daughter is ill etc.”
The point is: if we are in a situation we don’t like but potentially we can change it then we need to do something about that.
We need to take action, we need to learn not be afraid to change for the better. It can take time but if we really work for it, we will succeed.
If our situation can not be changed at the moment, or can’t be changed at all, then we need to be patient and change our attitude.
Happiness is an attitude of mind. We need to accept it and try to look at the positive side of it and, believe me, there is always one. Not because we can’t see any positive side, it means that there isn’t. We can’t allow ourselves to be miserable all the time. If we do, we don’t love ourselves enough. We need to push ourselves to be happy, learn and practice things that make us feel better and happier.
Having said that, here is the list of my suggestions.
There are things we need to understand that are not good for us, therefore we need to get rid of them and also replace them with some good habits.
# 1 Start a Day in a Good Way
First of all, if we want to live a Happy Day, it is extremely important we start the day in a good and happy way and I have dedicated a post where I have given 5 Tips on how to start a day in a Good and Happy way.
Here it is: How to start a day in a good and happy way
# 2 Believe You Can Do it
Whatever is your plan for the day, believe you can do it. Don’t be afraid.
Only a mental barrier can stop you think you can do it. Your mental barrier is created by your beliefs and your thoughts.
Choose your thoughts wisely.
# 3 Appreciate yourself
Don’t compare yourself to others and learn to respect yourself.
If you don’t respect and love yourself, you can’t expect people respecting you.
People treat you the way they see you treat yourself.
Treat people the way you would like to be treated.

# 6 Appreciate Simple Things
During the day appreciate simple things, because the most simple things can bring the most happiness.

Don’t rush all day, every day. Slow down. Remember, doing things quickly bring about bad results and it can increase the level of stress.
Remember to live the Present. Focus and concentrate on what you do all the time, do one thing at the time.
Remember Happiness is in the present moment.
# 9 Practice Walking Meditation
How many times we walk from one place to another, without even thinking about the movement of our legs or our feet? Probably every time we walk, because it’s something we do automatically and we don’t need to think about it.
Practice walking meditation during the day is very beneficial and also is very easy to learn. If you want to know more you can read my post on Walking meditation.
# 10 Practice some Conscious Breathing
Breathing is like walking, we don’t need to pay attention because it’s automatic and we all do it on average 20,000 times a day.
Practice some Conscious Breathing during the day can be very beneficial particularly when we are going through difficult moments.

# 11 Let go of the small and unimportant things
During the day it is inevitable that a number of small but irritable things can happen to us. Our colleague who said the wrong thing, someone who cut the road on our way to work, etc. We need to learn not to give importance to these small things and let them go.
These little stresses can pile up and, at some point, they can begin to take their toll. We need to let go of the physical and psychological impact that these little things have on us.
# 12 Stop Complaining
Complaining is a negative habit and doesn’t solve any problems. The more we complain, the more unhappy we get.
People won’t have time for you if you are always complaining and they could even avoid your company.
# 13 Learn to Vent Your Frustrations
Something bad happened during the day, feeling frustrated?
Take your feelings off your chest, talk to someone you can trust, but be careful who you choose.
In many situations it is good to discharge your negative emotions, it helps to calm down and restore your equilibrium.
When you have finished you will probably feel better and you will be able to carry on with your day without any weights on your chest.
# 14 Avoid Negative and Unhappy People
Choose the people around you wisely. If you can’t avoid them, like people at work, your family, then don’t let these people affect your mood and ruin your happiness.
# 15 Surround Yourself with Happy and Positive People

# 16 Be Kind and do something good to others
If you want to have a happy day, be kind, don’t judge others, and have respect for people.
If you can do something good to help others, believe it makes you feel good too. Try it!

Practicing physical exercises releases happy chemicals into our brain. It energizes us, ease stress and can also boosts our confidence.
# 18 Have love in your day
To live a Happy day we need Love as part of it. Love is one of the most powerful force in the universe and certainly is a must ingredient in our life if we want to be happy.
# 19 Focus on your goal and on what you want to achieve
Dedicate few moments during the day where you can dream of what you want to achieve, have a vision, imagine you have already achieved it, feel that feeling deeply.
This practice can help you remind yourself what you want and helps you not to lose your motivation, and also very importantly, keep your desire burning. If we don’t keep our desire burning, is very likely we end up giving up.
# 20 Finish a Day in a Good and Happy Day
Not only it’s important to start a Day in a good and happy way, but it’s also important to finish our day in a good way, we need to prepare ourselves for a good night sleep and be ready to live another happy day.
I have dedicated a post about it which I suggest you read it: How to finish a day in a good and happy way.
