1- Evaluate Your Relationships and Activities

Finding happiness in the people and activities in your life is the first step.

Who are you spending time with and what are you doing?

Are the people you invest time with and the activities you participate positive or negative influences in your life?

Ask yourself, do these people or activities make me happy?

If not maybe you should find different people and/or activities that will add happiness to your life.

Focusing on the positive people and activities in your life and reducing the negative people and activities in your life is the first step needed in finding happiness.

2 – Invest Time in Your Relationships

Now that you’ve evaluated your relationships invest time in them.

Making time for your relationships is crucial to your happiness. This allows you to repair the stresses and strains that appear in every relationship while building a foundation of good memories you can look back on.

Taking time for your relationships with your spouse or partner, children, friends and other members of your family is one of the best ways to find happiness as well as build more of it.

If you’ve given up a habit like smoking then find an active sport or activity that gets you out of your chair and moving. This will rebuild your body.

Make a commitment to be as healthy as you can be.
