Joy is an emotion, and emotions are silent. They are pure physical sensations in our bodies. We express feelings of joy in many physical ways. For example, we jump for joy when we win a highly competitive competition, or we squirm in uncontrollable laughter when someone tells a hilarious story. We scream with joy after receiving a surprise gift and we rejoice when we hear great news. We feel so happy and encouraged on a beautiful day.

1. Stop waiting to be happy.

The good news is that there are always new ways to feel happy. Imagine life like Grand Central Station, where happy times arrive 24/7. Chances are, the chance to be happy already exists. Sometimes it's right in front of you. For some reason, you can't shift your focus to noticing and appreciating it.

No matter what happens around you, you can feel happier, be more productive, attract achievements, and enjoy yourself in the process. When you change your focus and mindset, your perspective changes. When transformation happens, your life changes. So put your work shift together.

2. Add happiness to your life now.

Can you see it you live on a tropical island. You get up when you want and do what you want. A man named Jeffs is preparing breakfast. From a lying position on your balcony, all you can see is the sea and your feet. Ah, the souls of the young and retired.

We all dream of being happy one day. Until then we will be exhausted, stressed and unhappy. A dream doesn't seem possible without winning the lottery or a phone call from a wealthy uncle in poor health. But what makes life interesting if we are not happy with it?

The good news is that you can now make your life happier. Just a few activities that produce serotonin can reduce stress and make utopia waiting more bearable.

3. Make self-care a part of your routine.

Being able to take the time to hold the reset button is something we all have to do now and then. But here's the thing: Taking the time to indulge in a moment of rest, relaxation, or indulgence is only part of the battle. We take our time for happy hour but end up being less happy than thinking about the last few emails that didn't make it to you to be there. How can you watch Netflix stress-free with piles of dirty laundry next to the TV? Can you really walk into town with a box of salted caramel knowing you haven't been to the dentist in 18 months? Or if you haven't yet ordered a wedding gift for your roommate and the wedding was two years ago?

One of the safest ways to make this self-care time shine is to make sure you don't stress yourself about various small tasks while trying to check the impact. Arrange yourself so that your "time" is as efficient as possible.

4. Entering into a joyful state of mind.

A happy life is the best existence we can hope for. It is the kind of life that creates positive vibes and good energy and encourages us to look to the future with high hopes. Pure joy may seem like a fleeting emotion, but even if you feel it for a moment, you can hold on to it. You can enjoy it.

5. Stop worrying.

Happiness works like love in a mysterious way. However, science and psychology tell us that brain chemistry changes emotions. But in order to activate these chemicals, we need to talk about habits first.

There is a formula for happiness and it is changing thinking patterns. Your patterns - what you do, think and say every day - determine how happy you are. It has nothing to do with what's around you, it has everything to do with the way your brain works - that inner voice. Happiness is beyond your reach because it is literally inside you.

6. Appreciate the little things.

We all have it. Those little moments or things that often go unnoticed or unnoticed because we either take them as insignificant or take them for granted because we live in a culture that celebrates great accomplishments. But what if we made it a habit to embrace and celebrate the little things? Real life is happening all around us while we wait for the big thing we hope to do with some kind of inner peace, contentment, or joy. The truth is, it's often the little things that matter the most.
