How many times have you read on Google or social media platforms that “your happiness lies in you”. A lot of times??
Yes! We know the fact that our happiness lies in us. But, there are external factors which are out of our control that keep hindering our cheerfulness. Modifying your actions positively according to your mood will definitely boost your behaviour and cheer you up. Your happiness will always lie in you. Don’t get dependent on others to be happy.
Who knew that getting happy is just a 5-minutes job?
Here we have listed 10 ways to get happier only in 5 minutes.
Write it down
Whenever you get sad, write 3 positive things about you on a piece of paper. You will become more positive and more optimistic in the next 5 minutes.
Go outside and feel the fresh air
Did you know that watching moving cars on the road and listening to their vroom-vroom while enjoying the fresh air can actually help you in getting happier? Try this out and feel the difference.
Ohh wait, if it’s extremely hot and you hate summers like anything, find a place which has more shadows to get saved from the sun-heat.
Leave a note for your loved ones
Remember those who are really special to you whenever you are sad. Your sad days are the best days to thank those who are still beside you. Leave a note with beautiful words for them. Trust me, it really works.
Learn something new
There are plenty of things in the world that you don’t know. YouTubing and watching relevant videos can develop amazing skills in you. A 5-minute or 10-minute video can make you wiser.

If you are sad and nothing makes you better, walk to the bathroom, look into the mirror, have an eye to eye contact with yourself and cry like a baby. Once your emotions are controlled, say “I am Happy”, repeat it for 10 times and come out. You will see a big smile on your face
Share with your buddy
Many research states that sharing your grief with your chuddies buddies can restore your good mood. Call and reach out to that buddy of your life. That person is the only person who can make you feel better at this tough time.
