Here’s 5 top tips on how to feel happier on International Day of Happiness

1.Smile

Smile and the world smiles with you.

We feel better when we smile and according to the facial feedback hypothesis it’s all to do with body temperature.

It promotes positive feelings, with one study suggesting our facial expressions change the temperature of the blood supply to the brain, causing pleasurable feelings when the temperature dropped.

2.Pay it forward

Pay it forward  is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. In addition, Giving connects us to others, creating stronger communities. Paying it forward doesn’t always mean giving money you can give your time

3.Volunteer

Volunteering is good for the soul. A recent study found as we get older volunteering has great benefits for us physically and emotionally.

Whether it’s taking time out to help at a local soup kitchen, knitting cardigans for a neo-natal until or heading to Africa to build shelters, you’ll make connections, change lives and feel good.

4.Give away old clothes

Giving is receiving and one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

For Happiness Day, give something valuable to someone who can use it.

The Netflix series Tidying Up got the nation into a cleaning frenzy as Japanese organising consultant Marie Kondo advised us to give away anything that “didn’t spark joy”.

Ask a friend if they’d like your previously loved dresses or donate them to a charity shop.

When you see your tidy closet after the extras are gone, you’ll feel happy too.

5. Get out in nature

Studies found that just five minutes in nature can boost your self-esteem, which is linked to well-being. Analysing data from nature activities such as walking, cycling and gardening, researchers discovered for the first time that just a few minutes in nature is all it takes to make you happy.
