7. Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
It’s taken me a very long time to stop this habit, although it does still happen from time to time (we’re all human!) Once you realize that despite what’s being shown from the outside (this means you, Instagram) everyone has their own sh*t they have to deal with. No one is perfect and once you start putting all of your energy into bettering yourself rather than comparing yourself, you will become a happier person.
8. Surround Yourself With Inspirational People
Being social creatures, humans need to interact with others to be happy. Surrounding yourself with positive people whether it’s your friends, family, or coworkers will in turn make you happy. If there is someone in your life that is constantly putting you down or makes you feel ashamed for no reason–you need to get rid of them. (Understandably, this may be hard to avoid in a work environment, in which my advice is to ignore them and focus on you.) Anyone that doesn’t support you or brings you down for something that makes you happy is not a friend. Being around others that encourage you will instantly boost your mood and overall happiness.
9. Listen to Podcasts
I mean, a podcast inspired this post! Podcasts are a great tool to gain new information about specific topics and trigger motivation. I particularly enjoy listening to personal development and health podcasts and ones that helped me develop healthy habits are Learn True Health, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, Your Motivational High 5, The Chalene Show, and The Minimalists.
