Sometimes you don’t need meds, shrinks or even friends to jumpstart a better mood.
Life is full of ups and downs.
I know from my television and radio career that sometimes you don’t feel like being happy. You just want to be left alone until you snap out of it. That’s a luxury we don’t have in that business.
Before I speak, I try physical activity and nine times out of ten, my emotions rise to the occasion.
But I found these great ideas to get real happy, real fast. I hope you like them and if you do pass them on to others:
- Pump up your activity level. Increase exercise or even take a walk. It helps.
- Contact someone who makes you happy to be in their company. Even a text or an email will do.
- Get rid of things that bother you in your space. Set a timer and see how you feel after 10 minutes.
- Do a good deed for another – even if you don’t know them. Practice random acts of kindness (this always works for me).
- Paste a smile on your face. My friend Jay Cook was a disc jockey at WFIL, Philadelphia. Before he opened his mike to talk, he broke into a big smile. Try it. It works.
- Do something new. Anything. Discovery leads to happiness.
We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t get down from time to time.
