6 Ways To Become A Happier Person

Become a volunteer. Find something you enjoy doing and look into community organizations or events offering volunteer positions. You’ll learn to better manage your personal time while enjoying the benefits of helping others. If you’re not very comfortable in social situations, this will also help you interact with other people.

Exercise. Not only does exercise improve physical health, you’ll also see improvements in your mental health. For people battling low self-esteem, exercise can boost your confidence and feel more energized. This is also a great way to reduce stress and anxiety from your daily life.

Take a vacation. Getting a break from your daily work routine will help replenish your energy and reduce stress. Studies also show people who frequently take vacation are also at less risk of developing heart issues.

Read. Find a subject or genre you’re interested in and spend some time each day reading. Losing yourself in a good book can help reduce stress while exercising your mind. You’ll want to find a quiet place free of distraction to best benefit from a reading break.

Eat healthy. This is a key component in being healthy in general, which offers mental health benefits in addition to physical health. Eating lean and losing weight will improve your mood and reduce stress. You’ll generally also see an improvement in sleep quality and increased levels of energy.

Find a hobby. This may also include something already mentioned in this list such as reading or exercise. A good hobby can be the kind of activity you often think about when doing other things or while at work. Ideally you want to find a pleasant activity which doesn’t leave you frustrated afterward.

Experiencing ASMR

Autonomous sensory meridian response, often referred to in the shortened form of ASMR, is a tingling sensation felt on the scalp, neck and upper back area when presented with certain visual or auditory triggers. Not everyone may experience the feeling, and those who do may see differing results across the commonly used triggers. These appear to be the most common triggers:

  • soft spoken voice / whispering
  • personal attention
  • tapping / scratching noises
  • quiet repetitive sounds
  • personal care role play (hair brushing, etc)

So, what’s the point of this? The ASMR sensation is a relaxing feeling which may help with anxiety or stress issues and is also often used to assist with sleep. Consider it a natural method for helping stay calm in your busy life.
