Happiness - 5 unusual tips to be happy

I guess you reading this article because you want to be happy right ?
You came to the right place, i will give you 5 tips to get there, based on the latest research in the field .

1 . Walk as if you were in a commercial for shampoo:

The general idea : what you do affects how you feel , says author Richard Wiseman, in his latest book , The As If Principle . In other words , behave as if you were happy and you will be, scientifically speaking .

A weird thing to do might work; change the way you walk . The researchers found that people who walk with long strides ( long strides , swing arm ) for three minutes feel "really happier" than those who walk shuffling ( not small , curved shoulders , face down ) .

2 . Act as if nothing had ever happened:

The general idea : Most of us have some ideas of when or how they will benefit more from life ( When I get this job, Or If I get married...) , which fact prevents us from being happy, says Sonja Lyubomirsky in his book the Myths of Happiness .
All these ideas are not also concern the future. Constantly thinking that if we had acted differently in the past, we would be happy today, is just as bad .

A weird thing to do might work; create " a new yourself ."
The first step, the look or the things that you absolutely want but you have not obtained (eg, "I wanted to skate at the Olympic Games" or "I wanted to have a child") .

Next, examine the specific reasons which have prevented this dream come true, what people and events which have influenced you, in which minor or major did you choose? Once this painful task has been carried out, a job that most people avoid doing, you will be better prepared to imagine a "new yourself".

In other words, you can now begin work soon on the person you want to become , instead of comparing yourself or try to catch the person you want to be before .

3 . Give to help yourself:

The general idea : give until you succeed , says Adam Grant, author of the forthcoming book Give and Take , explaining how the generosity helps you to grow and not to fail even in the most difficult situations.

A weird thing to do might work; buy your mother cashmere socks. Researchers from the Harvard Business School, University of British Columbia and the University of Li├Ęge and established buying something for someone else, as long as it does not exceed a reasonable range of 3$ to 20$, makes you happier than buying the same thing for yourself .

4 . Whisper in the dark:

The general idea : There has never been more Americans are dissatisfied with their work situation since the recession, says Lyubomirsky. Admittedly, this may be the result of lower wages and longer hours. But it may also be because we are used to the positive aspects of our jobs and we have seen a little faster as insured .

A weird thing that might work to; establish a list of everything you like in your work attitude open to new ideas, or a laptop that you can take home. If you 're one of the people who make lists of things they are thankful just before going to bed, be aware that your spouse can worry a little to hear you whisper in the dark.

5. Drop the thought "smiley" :

The general idea : some people play to win. Others play not to lose , says new book Focus; Use Different Ways of Seeing the World for Success and Influence . Discover what type you belong helps motivate you to succeed more quickly and simply feel better .

A weird thing to do might work; refuse to be optimistic (if you are not a positive person) . In an experiment conducted by the two authors , Heidi Grant Halvorson and E. Tory Higgins was given a set of letters to people "playing not to lose" (which also tend to be pessimistic) .

In the middle of the game, they were told that they had succeeded, they then quickly lost motivation and stopped playing. However, when they were told mid-game they do not really succeeded, they were motivated to do better, solved more puzzles and have more fun .

All this brings us back to the good old principle of happiness;
be yourself, you have the right to be pessimistic.
