What is happiness?

On this question, perhaps the answer is different in everyone's mind. Our life experiences are different, and our interpretation of happiness is also different.

But no matter which kind of happiness is retold, it all originates from the warmest perception and the most abundant feeling in one's heart.

Happiness is not the vanity of the face, but the inner need; happiness is not in the eyes of others, but in one's own heart.

These 20 small things recommended by Harvard University tell us that happiness is not far from us, and the smallest things in life are the source of happiness.

1. Smile.

First of all, please remember: what makes the world shine is not the sunshine, but your smile.

Just like Sancho said: "I smile, then face like a spring flower. It is sure to touch people, no matter who they are." The power of a smile goes straight to the heart at any time and space.

Life will not be different because of a roar. But it will become extra beautiful because of a smile.

So, when you open your eyes for the first moment, please smile.

2. don't care what others think.

Life is ultimately your own, do not care too much about what others think of you.

Others praise you and flatter you, you will not be ten years younger; others ignore you and even laugh at you, you will not be stupid and stupid.

Know that there are only three things in this world: your own business, other people's business, and God's business. The other things, what does it matter to you?

3. Spend at least 10 minutes a day in meditation.

Have some time alone every day, because: determination produces wisdom.

A wise man also said: The best state of life is abundant quiet. Not only do we need a period of quiet, but at a certain age, we enjoy all the quiet times.

Many of the things that have been disturbed, we will be in this quiet time for ourselves to stroke understand, so do not go too fast, wait for the soul.

4. spend some time with the elderly over 70 years old, and children under 6 years old.

One should not give up at least two things in life: wisdom as well as childishness.

With the elderly, we can gain more wisdom in life, and with children, we will briefly regain the innocence of children.

And this, too, is the wonderful thing about life.

5. don't be too serious.

We are powerless to change, so it is better to admit our powerlessness than to hold on to it.

So, do your best and listen to God. This is the greatest submissiveness in the world.

6. you don't need to win every argument.

Life is not a battlefield, no need to teach a high or low. Try to listen to other people's opinions, but also to agree with yourself.

A gentleman is harmonious but different. Your cultivation will make you happier.

7. Don't spend your precious energy on talking gossip with people.

If you are fragrant, butterflies will come; if you are sad, bad luck will come to your door.

The law of attraction tells us: you will attract your most attention to life.

So, trying to do something more meaningful, after all, can enrich life, not only gossip.

8. Life is short, don't waste your time hating anyone.

The greatest cultivation in life is tolerance.

It is neither cowardly nor tolerant, not cynical of people's talents, despises people's abilities, and the irony of people's shortcomings blames people's mistakes, but detects people's difficulties, fills people's shortcomings, promotes people's strengths, and understands people's faults.

You should know that time is your own, instead of spending a lot of time hating others, you should tolerate others and let yourself go. Stay away from all negative emotions, life will eventually teach us: no one should be responsible for our lives, except ourselves. 9.

9. drink plenty of water.

The adult body is composed of 70% of water, and children's bodies are 80% water.

Water is vital to human health. We often say that people can not eat for three days, but not three days without water.

Water can not only promote metabolism, for soothing emotions but is also quite useful.

Therefore, there is nothing to drink water often, drinking water is a source of health, and water is comparable to any good medicine.

10. in your waking hours, please dream more.

Heine once said, "If you don't sow in spring, you won't grow in summer, you can't harvest in autumn, and you can't taste in winter. "

I think that life is the same way, there is sowing to harvest, and there is a vision to make it better. And this is what we often call "daydreaming".

There is nothing wrong with proper daydreaming. In the rush of the years, think about poetry and faraway places, how gratifying.

There is a particularly hot paragraph on the Internet called "dreams always have to have, in case they come true? "So, why not try it?

Finally, here is the "formula for success" to help you make your dreams come true: positive thinking + positive emotions + strong desire + strong beliefs + continuous attention = the desire to achieve.

Get 8 hours of sleep a day.

There is one thing that will improve your memory and increase your charm; keep you slim and reduce your appetite; protect you from cancer and Alzheimer's; keep you from getting colds and colds; and reduce your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and diabetes. It will make you feel happier, less depressed, and less stressed.

That is something called sleep. So says sleep science expert Matthew Walter.

Sleep is more important than diet and exercise. Sleep hurts the most if a person is deprived of sleep, food, or exercise for 24 hours. People over 45 who sleep less than 6 hours per night are 200% more likely to get heart attacks and brain attacks than those who sleep 7-8 hours.

So the poet recommends sleep time: 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day.

12. forget that unhappy past, don't always dwell on past mistakes.

Yesterday's day must not stay, today's day is much more annoying.

There is a Western proverb that says don't cry over spilled milk, so why get too stuck in your heart and messy in your feelings?

We don't raise flowers to be angry; we don't talk to complain; we don't have memories to regret.

Don't live in regrets about the past; don't live in worries about the future. Live in the present to live up to your years.

13. Make yourself read more each month than the previous month.

"Books and volumes are like old friends, morning and evening sorrow and happiness are very close. The eyes straight down three thousand words, chest times all without a bit of dust."

Reading books is the act of wisdom, and this act itself, however, can lead a person to greater wisdom.

Making books a regular part of life is the most beautiful habit of life. It is a blessing for life if there is always a delightful book accompanying you in your hand, on your table, or your bed.

From the spring flowers to read to the autumn moon, from the night snow to read to the morning glow on, read a few more books every day, why worry about the day there is no rich learning?

As the saying goes: the book uses the time to hate less! Don't feel sorry when you get to a certain age: you read too few books when you were young! Read and enjoy reading, while there is still time.

Spend 10-30 minutes a day jogging.

Do you know what the most effective and least expensive way to exercise is? Jogging, and jogging consistently!

Medical authorities believe that jogging is a great way to exercise your heart and your whole body. It's great for weight loss and for quitting smoking.

Someone said, "Run every day, happy less."

Now, the jogging trend has started everywhere, have you joined it?

15. No one can dictate your happiness, except you.

We all seem to be accustomed to looking at other people's attitudes to determine their sadness and happiness. The happiness of those who are not by themselves can not be called happiness. The first thing you need to do is to feel happy from your heart.

If, you love yourself should be more than everything. If you feel that the dish is bland, add some salt; if you feel that the onion is tasteless, add an egg.

Your happiness is up to you.

So the next time you feel miserable, don't point your finger at someone else.

16. you are busy working hard, it will not give you thoughtfulness and warmth when you are sick; while your friends will give you.

So, remember to keep in touch oh. Real friendship is durable, thanks to time, space, fame, and fortune to help you eliminate those who once cried and laughed together; and the rest, please learn to cherish!

17. also don't forget: call your family from time to time.

In the past, when we had a phone, we would call home in three days or two; now, we have many cell phones, three years or two years can not make a few calls.

But time never waits for anyone, and there will not always be that familiar voice on the other end of the phone. So, don't forget to call your family from time to time, even if it's just to chat and chill.

Of course, more importantly, remember: come home often!

18. try to make at least 3 people smile every day.

Indian poet Rabbinate Tagore said: When a man smiles, the world will love him.

Smiling is the most infectious power. While trying to make others smile, please smile first to live each day.

If you can do this, you will gain a lot: a healthy body and mind, good people ......

Take some time to meditate, practice yoga, or pray.

I often have readers ask me, "Why am I unhappy even though I get along with everyone?"

The reason is simple we all think about how to become more social and popular, but we neglect the most important point: how to get along with ourselves.

Learning to be alone and understanding yourself is a necessary ability for a person. As Chen Doming said: "If you don't do something useless, how can you dispel the sound of the end?

Settle down and have a good dialogue with yourself. External harmony comes from within.

20. No matter what the mood is: get up, freshen up and shine!

The mood is secondary, life is the main thing. No matter what, what we should do is become the best version of ourselves.

Yesterday's sun can not dry today's clothes. A person who knows how to live will never just dwell on the past.

So, don't be disillusioned, don't be depressed. You will still be the most beautiful you!

There is nothing to be afraid of in life.

Happiness is in front of you.

Do these 20 little things.
